The Magic Numbers

ON SALE FRIDAY 19TH OCTOBER 9AM AEST!

MJR Presents is pleased to announce the return of UK indie royalty The Magic Numbers for the first time
since their 2010 Splendour in the Grass appearance and 2006 Big Day Out tour. The four-piece comprising
two pairs of brothers and Sisters (Romeo and Michele Stodart, Sean and Angela Gannon) are known for their
unique harmonies, melodic hooks, songwriting craftsmanship and timeless sound.

The band quickly shot to media attention after selling out London’s Kentish Town Forum solely on the
strength of their loyal live following, before the release of their self-titled 2005 Mercury Music Prize
nominated debut album. The Magic Numbers went on to become one of the UK’s best-loved bands and have
toured around the world with the likes of Brian Wilson, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Flaming Lips, Sonic
Youth, The Who, Morrissey, U2 and Bright Eyes.

As well as five successful albums including this year’s set ‘Outsiders’, The Magic Numbers have collaborated
with a number of artists, lending their trademark sound and harmonies to the likes of Ed Harcourt, Chemical
Brothers, The Divine Comedy, Duke Special and David Kitt.

The band will visit four states (many for the first time in over a decade), kicking off their tour in Brisbane on
March 21 before winding their way across the country through Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.

CALLING ALL DANCING QUEENS AND SUPER TROUPERS

ABBA ORCHESTRATED HAS ARRIVED

WESTPORT PARK GETS SET TO COME ALIVE WHEN BABBA HITS THE STAGE WITH A 30 PIECE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CONDUCTED BY GEORGE ELLIS

 

Saturday November 3rd will be an unforgettable evening filled with timeless hits as The Music of ABBA comes alive, performed by BABBA and The George Ellis Orchestra.

Fans of the legendary Swedish band ABBA will rejoice as BABBA and the George Ellis Orchestra meet the challenge in creating a symphonic concert like you’ve never seen before, paying homage to ABBA’s timeless music.

Following hundreds of millions of albums sold, and forty years after being formed, the music of ABBA can still be heard – and seen – everywhere.

George Ellis is one of Australia’s most admired conductors, composers and orchestrators working with Hans Zimmer, Lou Reed, The Church, Megan Washington and in many cities around the world with career highlights such as the Sydney Olympic opening ceremonies, arts and cultural festivals, opening nights, ARIA Awards, and sporting finals such as the NRL and Davis Cup. He will lead the 30-piece symphony orchestra with BABBA as they pay loving tribute to ABBA, together they will be re-imagining all your favourite ABBA songs as you’ve never experienced them before including Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!, Dancing Queen, Money Money Money, S.O.S., Take a Chance on Me, Chiquitita, Mamma Mia, Voulez-Vous, The Winner Takes it All, Knowing Me Knowing You , Fernando, Does Your Mother Know, Thank You for the Music, One of Us and More!

The approach to combining pop musicians and symphonies has been a game changer for orchestras in their quest to attract new and more expansive audiences.

Promoter Scott Mesiti from MJR Presents says “The beautiful thing about music is its capacity to bring people together for something that transcends the individual experience. I worked with George Ellis and his Orchestra on the Hans Zimmer tour and can’t wait to see Port Macquarie experience a world class orchestral event, in a relaxed, open-air setting”.

The seminal anthems of generations combined with the power of the 30-piece Symphony Orchestra attended by Australia’s most celebrated conductor George Ellis, The Music of ABBA is sure to provide an escapist treat in melancholy times. The authentic costumes, vocal collaboration and stage performance exude an extraordinary re-creation of the magic and excitement of the legendary band.

As from their winning performance at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with Waterloo, ABBA is known and loved all over the world and is without any doubt the most popular music pop group of all times, selling in excess of 37 billion records throughout their career.

BABBA is the most exciting and musically accurate tribute to ABBA in the world. In a spellbinding performance of all the hits, BABBA takes you on a musical journey that will have you on your feet uncontrollably. With spine tingling harmonies and a band that will rock your socks off, BABBA is simply the best night out in town.
