‘First Of The Final Farewell Tours …perhaps’


The Kevin Bloody Wilson Show is not just a concert performance, for most, it’s a full on event and an opportunity to tick from your bucket-list a chance to see Australia’s most unique International comedy legend.

If we were asked to nominate one individual to best define Australian humour, for most of us, the name Kevin Bloody Wilson immediately springs to mind. His recently released biography ‘DILLIGAF, The Life And Rhymes Of Kevin Bloody Wilson’ is a raucous, earthy, in depth look at perhaps one of the only Australian Comedians who has not bowed to the pressures of political correctness.
It’s also a known fact that nobody tells Australian stories better than Kevin Bloody Wilson. His peers agree;
“The world’s funniest Australian” Billy Connolly
“I love Kev. My favourite is Livin’ Next Door To Alan.” Paul Hogan
“Hello John, is the funniest song I’ve ever heard in my entire radio career.” John Laws

John Denver - Take Me Home Country Road

John Denver - Take Me Home Country Road
Sunday, May 10 2015, 8:30PM

John Denver in the mid-1970s was arguably America’s most celebrated male entertainer. His 1973 Greatest Hits album remained on Billboard magazine’s chart of top album sellers for about three years. In 1975 and 1976, Denver won four American Music Awards- honours that measured the sentiments of music buyers rather than industry figures. Of his 24 albums released on the RCA label during his lifetime, 14 were eventually certified gold (for sales of 500,000 copies), and eight of those sold over a million copies each.

Australian singer, Rick Price, has returned from his current home in Nashville to tell the John Denver story. Rick’s award-winning voice gives true heart and soul to Denver’s music, while telling the story of his contradictory life – a life that combined love of the environment, his fellow beings and the planet, while at the same time giving into bouts of infidelity, alcoholism and aberrant behaviour.

Rick narrates a gripping story of Denver’s passions while giving voice to more than 20 of his greatest hits. He is accompanied by The Colorado Quartet in two hours of superb entertainment.

The Audreys ’Til My Tears Roll Away VINYL TOUR 2015

The Audreys are a folk-rock band from Adelaide. You probably know them, they've released four albums, won a bunch of awards and toured all 'round the world. There are two of them. Taasha sings and plays tiny guitars and keyboards and Tristan plays normal-sized guitars and doesn't sing. Sometimes, they tell goofy stories about when they used to be married. They don't need an excuse to hit the road, but as it happens they want to celebrate the release of their 2014 album "'Til My Tears Roll Away" on vinyl. Come celebrate with them, who knows what you’ll be in for…

Faulty Towers The Dining Experience
- Having filled the first half of this year with Fringe World Perth, Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival, as well as various independent venues – including Sydney Opera House – this legendary Australian show comes/returns to Ballina in July 2014.

Waited upon by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, this is fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific comedy theatre at its best. Only one third of the show scripted, so anything can happen as you take a seat in the 'Fawlty Towers' restaurant… Expect all the best gags, shambolic service and a ‘70s style 3-course meal in ‘a hilarious battle of wits, patience, fire extinguishers and fine food’ (Australian Traveller magazine, Sydney Opera House). Just don’t mention the war! Internationally acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.
