Port Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival

PORT MACQUARIE BEER AND CIDER FESTIVAL RETURNS FOR ITS 4th YEAR!

Port Macquarie and beyond it’s been too long between drinks! After a brief hiatus last year, we are excited to announce that the much-loved Port Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival will make its return in 2019 to its home on Westport Park, armed with some of Australia’s best Beer and Cider makers.

Set with the serene Hastings River as backdrop, the event will be held Saturday November 16, showcasing a spectacular and diverse range of brews. More than fifty different beers and ciders are set to be represented, from a selection of the finest brewers both locally and Australian-wide.

This year’s festival will also see the return of the ever popular Mid North Coast Beer Keg Toss with the return of previous champions hoping to retain their title. This, our nod to the long tradition of the Highland Games, the Beer Keg Toss relies on a combination of technique, timing and pure power to succeed. Festival organisers are looking for the best male and best female to take out $600 in cash and prizes. Competitors should register early to avoid disappointment via the website. Qualifying heats will be run throughout the day and the penultimate final will decide the winner.

The family event will feature the regions very best gourmet food market stalls, games and live music. The games area will be bursting with activities to keep kids of all ages entertained with a jumping castle, Bocce set up, giant Jenga play, plus lots more.

We also have something a little special just for the ladies.

Squeeze

British new wave legends Squeeze announce ‘Songbook’ tour of Australia & NZ!

ON SALE NOW

The South London new-wave warriors, who were previously down under in 2018 for a run of sold-out shows around the country, have announced their return to Australian shores in 2020, for their brand new tour ‘The Songbook Tour’.

With shows set to land in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, fans around the country will have a chance to see brand new material from Squeeze, as well as hits like ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Tempted’ and ‘Up The Junction’ as Squeeze bring the soundtrack of the 70s and 80s into full focus.

“‘I am over the moon to be announcing the 2020 tour with Squeeze.”, says Glenn Tilbrook. “We’ve had something of a renaissance in the last few years, and look forward to this continuing, as we will play a set of songs that are new, contemporary and as innovative as people have come to expect from us, along with the old beauties.”With 2 critically acclaimed albums in the past three years, and a live show that has seen them headline numerous festivals in the UK (as well as sell their own sold out shows around the world), “something of a renaissance” seems like an understatement.

Ever hardworking, the band will once again be bringing their scintillating live performances to adoring Australian fans in 2020, treating them to not just the hits, but also rarities that span their 45 year career.

Midge Ure

ON SALE TUESDAY 28th MAY 10am – SYDNEY TIME

Scottish New-Wave artist Midge Ure has today announced his Australian return tour, set to bring the sound of 1980, down under in 2020.

Previously in Australia for a quick, limited run of sold-out acoustic shows in 2015, Midge Ure returns to Australian shores in 2020 with a full band, a fuller sound and a brand new tour focusing on iconic hits from acclaimed album ‘Vienna’.

Brought to life by Midge Ure and Band Electronica, this is the very first time in nearly 40 years that the ‘Vienna’ album will be performed in its entirety in Australia. It is also the first time that many of the songs from the debut Visage album will be played live by the man who was one of the  creative forces behind the project.

With shows confirmed for Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth, crowds around the country will finally have a chance at seeing Midge Ure’s back catalogue, which includes ‘Fade To Grey’, ‘Vienna’, ‘Dancing With Tears in My Eyes’ and ‘Yellow Pearl’, which was written with Thin Lizzy’s Phil Lynott.

Australians always embraced musical experimentation and change and certainly took Ultravox and Visage to their hearts” Said Midge Ure. “I remember filming the acceptance speech for the single of the year Brit award for Vienna in the shadow of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during an Ultravox tour. I’m looking forward to coming back to celebrate that innovative and creative period.”

At the end of the 1970s momentous change was afoot in Britain and the world – in society, politics, fashion and culture – and the musical landscape was also about to change forever. The guitar-driven dominance that had propelled rock and punk throughout the decade was about to end, as synthesizers signalled the sound of the future and video transformed the look of the pop charts. The 1980s were about to explode into life and nothing would be the same again.

At the heart of this seismic leap into a futuristic new dawn were two records that set the template for much of what was to follow. Visage’s single ‘Fade To Grey’ from the band’s debut eponymous album and Ultravox’s single ‘Vienna’ from the album of the same name were global hits that shared the same stark ambience, European aesthetic and electronic heart. The albums that birthed those landmark singles expanded that sonic palette even further and brought the art-school alternative into the very centre of the mainstream.

Both records were co-written, recorded and produced by one of the leading characters in British music, Midge Ure, and not only transformed the charts around the globe but his life in the process.

Don’t miss your chance to see Scottish New Wave icon Midge Ure during his 2020 Australian tour.

Hard rock juggernaut HALESTORM are delighted to announce plans for their December 2019 Australian headline tour, presented by MJR Presents by arrangement with UTA. Recently in Australia for the second annual Download Festival Australia, they will return down under with special guests Black Stone Cherry to bring the ruckus!

Wall of Sound saw Halestorm at Download Festival Australia and proclaimed that “The four-piece from Pennsylvania brought the mayhem to Australia. Horns up were demanded by the self-described crazy chick on stage, with fans responding accordingly.” and The Guardian praised the Download Festival show and Hale in particular, saying “Few voices in rock are as dynamic as Lzzy Hale’s. Her range takes lesser bands to the cleaners and then tosses them roadside from a 1972 Pontiac.

Since their inception in 1998, Halestorm have toured extensively with a diverse variety of artists, including Eric Church, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, ZZ Top and Evanescence. They’ve played around 2,500 dates around the world to date, and performed at festivals like Taste of Chaos and Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. The band scored a Grammy for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2013, and Lzzy was named the “Dimebag Darrell Shredder of the Year” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards in 2016. Both Halestorm and The Strange Case of… were certified Gold, further evidencing Halestorm’s massively supportive fanbase.

Halestorm have also made history:  “Love Bites (So Do I),” the hit single from The Strange Case of…ascended to No. 1 at Active Rock radio in the U.S., making Halestorm the first-ever female-fronted group to earn the top spot on the format.

Arguably one of the most unique and captivating metal bands on earth, Apocalyptica have today announced their anticipated return to Australian shores! Presented by MJR Presents, the four-piece cello outfit are returning to play the biggest rooms they have ever played in Australia.

Having previously sold out solo runs around Australia, and surprised fans on the 2015 Soundwave Festival tour, the Finnish ‘cello metal’ group will return to Australia in September, for two brand new shows at some of the country’s most prestigious halls; the iconic Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Hamer Hall and new kid on the block The Fortitude Music Hall.

The Finnish, cello-driven rock opus, who changed the landscape of both heavy and classical music for years to come with the release of their 1996 album “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos” have built a reputation for incredible live shows, which consistently blurs the line between metal, classical, theatre and rock-opera. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the album, the group re-released it,  remastered with 3 bonus tracks on July 22, 2016. Added to this new version were brand new / never-before- released instrumental recordings of ‘Battery’, ‘Nothing Else Matters’ and ‘Seek &Destroy’.

After playing over 170 ‘Plays Metallica by Four Cellos’ concerts in more than 40 countries,
Apocalyptica went on to release seven critically acclaimed albums, selling over 6 million records worldwide.
