TOWER OF POWER TO CELEBRATE HALF A CENTURY OF FUNK WITH NEW ALBUM AND AUSTRALIAN TOUR

MJR Presents are pleased to announce the eagerly anticipated return of American Soul-Jazz-Funk royalty Tower of Power, celebrating 50 years of funk in Australia this March and a critically acclaimed new album Soul Side of Town(Artistry Music/Mack Avenue) which earned them their first ever #1 Slot on the Billboard Jazz Chart.

No strangers to a hectic touring schedule, the Oakland born 10-piece will be making a quick three-day trip to Australia in 2019, for shows in Melbourne, Sydneyand Brisbane, before returning home to continue on an anniversary tour that takes them across America.

“Playing in Australia has been sorely missing in our 50 year career, so we of Tower of Power are extremely excited and anxious to come ‘Down Under’ and bring our best and most exciting shows to the continent we’ve been longing to play for all these years. Can’t wait!!!” – Bandleader for Tower of Power,Emilio Castillo.

Since their formation in 1968 as the Motowns, Oakland soul band Tower of Power has been known for their legendary five-piece horn section, which led to songs like “So Very Hard To Go” or “What Is Hip?” and over 25 acclaimed albums that have taken the band around the world, several times over.

In 2019, Tower of Power will return to Australia with a collection of classic hits and music from their first new record in over 15 years.

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.
