Steel Panther

STEEL PANTHER GET BACK TO THEIR SUNSTRIP SET ROOTS, INCLUDE SET OF CLASSIC METAL COVERS

The Sunset Strip’s favourite sons, Steel Panther, are returning to Australia in May 2018 for a WORLD FIRST run of shows! They are returning to Australian shores with their Sunset Strip Live! Tour, which is ALL PANTHER, ALL NIGHT. Two sets – One set of Steel Panther originals, and One set of Classic Covers! Presented by MJR Presents by Arrangement with United Talent Agency, this is Steel Panther‘s third trip out to Australia since 2016 – and it seems like Australia can’t get enough of the raunchy Panther boys from LA!

The Steel Panther boys are coming to Australia to show off how it all started for them – playing venues like The Viper Room in Los Angeles, playing all the best hair metal songs of all time, eventually becoming the Steel Panther everyone loves (well maybe not your Grandma. It kind of depends on what Old Folks’ Home she’s in!).

The tour takes the boys to Melbourne’s The Forum on 16th May, Sydney’s Big Top on the 18th, Brisbane’s Eatons Hill on the 20th and finishing in Perth on the 22nd May at the Astor Theatre. Tickets go on sale Wednesday February 28 at 10:00am Local Time at mjrpresents.com.

Steel Panther have been prolific in their output in the past few years, releasing album “All You Can Eat” in 2014, Live DVD “Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage” in 2016 and album “Lower the Bar” in 2017. Their catalogue of hits is unstoppable, featuring hits like “Death to All But Metal”, “Community Property”, “17 Girls in a Row” and “Poontang Boomerang.”

Last time they visited Australian shores, Blunt Mag’s writer Luke Sutton said that..

.”…if the decade of neon was anything like Steel Panther make it out to be, then it was one hell of a time. [Steel Panther] have made a pretty solid name for themselves Down Under: their trips are all but annual at this point, with every passing crowd growing vaster, louder, and itchier.”

Don’t miss the raucous, irreverent, all-out hair metal assault on your senses (and probably your genitals) that is Steel Panther’s “Sunset Strip Live” tour this May in Australia!

SUMMERSALT

JOHN BUTLER TRIO

SAN CISCO, MAMMA KIN SPENDER, OH PEP!, BARREL HOUSE

SUN 8TH APRIL

WESTPORT PARK

PORT MACQUARIE NSW

[/cmsms_text][cmsms_text]

The much-anticipated outdoor SummerSalt concert is heading to Port Macquarie for the first time. The event will be sailing in to the picturesque Westport Park, Port Macquarie, New South Wales on Sunday 8 April 2018.

With sun, salt air, and sweet music to wash over the Australian coast, SummerSalt will create the perfect setting to dance the afternoon away with your friends or chill on the grass. New South Wales audiences will be able to soak up some classic seaside charm under the spell of John Butler Trio, San Cisco, Mama Kin Spender, Oh Pep! plus local act Barrel House.

SummerSalt is a newly launched concert event series that will deliver cream of the crop artists to the great Australian outdoors. SummerSalt takes place in some of the most stunning locations around the country. On top of showcasing the best of home-grown and international bands, it also brings cultural attractions, placing a very heavy emphasis on local community and sustainability. This is a first of its kind. The inaugural SummerSalt series of concerts launched with some of Australia’s best loved bands and artists.

John Butler remains one of the most successful independent artists in Australia’s history. His band, the John Butler Trio, have sold out a myriad of performances over the years in Australia and have gone on to take their music worldwide. John Butler has an impressive one million album sales to his name, has been the No. 1 most played artist on Australian radio and has numerous ARIA awards to write home about. Having played on countless festivals across the globe, John Butler Trio are in constant demand, after developing an earnest reputation as one of the best live blues and roots acts to this day. Their recent ARIA award winning album, Flesh & Blood, was released globally in February 2014. This then took them to sold out shows in Australia, Europe & North America, then remarkably saw them play their largest ever headline ticketed show at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Colorado) in front of nearly 10,000 people. John Butler Trio continues to capture their fans and take them on an organic journey.

San Cisco’s storm came in much like a front approaching the port in their home town of Fremantle; swift and eerily beautiful.

Initially whipped up in the wake of high school graduation, the foursome of Jordi, Josh, Scarlett, and Nick soon found themselves unwittingly defining hipster culture with the video for their breakout hit Awkward.

Fast forward to 2015 where San Cisco enlisted the help of producer and long-term collaborator Steven Schram to deliver their sophomore album Gracetown which debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts. The album showcased a new sound for the band, a more worldly approach to life; exploring the tyranny of love, displacement, homesickness, heartache and heartbreak, via disco, funk, soul and hip hop undertones.

In 2017 San Cisco has unleashed their third album The Water with standout singalong songs Hey, Did I Do You Wrong and The Distance and continues to tour the world with sell out shows from Sydney to LA to Mexico City to London and Amsterdam.

ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender have combined their collective talents into a joyous sound of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies. Together, Mama Kin Spender have become the soulful music alliance and artistic collaboration between this blissful duo. Their debut single, Air Between Us, was released mid this year and gave music lovers a glorious insight to what we can expect from their forthcoming debut full-length album, Golden Magnets – due for release in March 2018. From dark to light, inward to outward, Mama Kin Spender is a bewitching collision of alchemy, harmony and percussive wizardry.

Oh Pep! are musical explorers who travel in the form of a band; a collaboration between songwriters Olivia Hally (guitar, vocals) & Pepita Emmerichs (fiddle, mandolin). Drawing upon their escapades, they take you on a carefully arranged pop/folk adventure for your ears. After launching into the Australian music scene with their first EP, the duo spent a week by the beach recording with ARIA-Award Winner and CMAA Producer of the Year, Shane Nicholson and have since launched their second EP, II, with a national and international tour. Oh Pep! are currently preparing to record their debut album and tour North America.

The concert event will include a dedicated SummerSalt Lounge area (for lounge tickets holders only) for those who wish to enjoy the show at their own pace and leisure. There will also be access for concert goers to market stalls, mobile food options and activities to bring culture and community together.

MARIAH CAREY RESCHEDULES AUSTRALIAN TOUR

MJR Presents announced today that Mariah Carey’s February 2018 Australian and New Zealand tour has been rescheduled to October due to a necessary realignment of her international engagements for 2018.

The rescheduled tour will see Mariah deliver all her greatest hits which include Dreamlover, Emotions, Hero, Without You, Fantasy, One Sweet Day, We Belong Together, Always Be My Baby and many more, following on from her successful 2017 Las Vegas residency. Cementing her place as one of the world’s all-time iconic vocalists, Carey has sold over 200 million albums worldwide and spawned a career across music, film, television, fashion, beauty and much more.

Unfortunately, venue changes have been necessary for the Sydney and Melbourne shows with new tickets issued to patrons in the coming weeks. Tickets to the Brisbane show will remain valid for the rescheduled date and patrons will be contacted by the ticketing company with instructions. Those who cannot attend the new dates will be offered refunds. Unfortunately a Perth show has been unable to be accommodated on the new dates and patrons will be refunded.

For those who have not yet purchased, tickets for the rescheduled shows will go on sale 2pm local time on Thursday February 1. More information for current ticket holders and new purchasers is available from www.mjrpresents.com.

“It’s always unfortunate when these situations occur and we regret any inconvenience the rescheduling has caused for fans,” said MJR director Scott Mesiti. “We’re very excited that we’ve been able to find suitable time for Mariah’s return to ensure fans don’t miss out on what is sure to be a spectacular show from one of the music world’s biggest music icons.”

Shed Seven

Britpop legends Shed Seven have finally given into fan pressure and announced their first ever Australian tour, following the release of their brand new record ‘Instant Pleasures’.

The iconic 90s rockers, responsible for contributing heavily to the britpop revolution, alongside bands like Oasis, Blur and Ocean Colour Scene, will make their first trip down under in April next year, with shows confirmed for Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

Playing live in Australia has been right at the top of our bucket list for yearsSaid the band. It eluded us in the 90’s so we are ridiculously excited to finally be coming over to play these shows. We get so many great messages from fans in Australia and can’t wait to finally bring our show over for you….. Bring your best singing voices!

Having stamped their names into the book of Britpop by the mid-nineties, the York five-piece, whose hits include the alt-rock favourites Chasing Rainbows and Going For Gold, amassed a myriad of chart milestones, with fifteen Top 40 singles, four Top 20 albums and a wash of sell out tours around Europe as America. Despite breaking up in 2003, the band returned to the stage in 2007 for a reunion tour, following a call from fans.

In 2017 the band announced the release of ‘Instant Pleasures’, their first full length LP together in over 16 years. Instant Pleasures (out on November 10th) is the most fitting title for this, their fifth album and their first since 2001’s Truth Be Told. Frontman Rick Witter remarks that it works in two ways. Not only is it a comment on our tech-obsessed, social media crazy, instantaneous world, it’s also a literal tongue-in-cheek reference to the tracks themselves.

Sleeping With Sirens

Orlando, Florida alternative rock/metalcore outfit Sleeping With Sirens are returning to Australian soil in 2018 for their Gossip World Tour! Last here in 2015 on a string of sold-out shows, Sleeping With Sirens will be here in April next year to celebrate the release of their latest album, Gossip, which saw its release recently on September 22. Joining Sleeping With Sirens on this epic tour, presented by MJR Presents by arrangement with UTA will be Chase AtlanticLower Than Atlantis and The Faim.

Tickets will go on pre-sale on Wednesday 6th December and General Sale Friday 8th December at mjrpresents.com!

The outfit, known for their vocalist, Kellin Quinn’s impossibly high vocal range, are dropping in down under and making stops in Sydney at the Big Top Saturday April 21, Melbourne Sunday April 22 at Festival Hall, Tuesday 24th April at Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide, Wednesday 25th April at Metro City in Perth, Friday 27th April at Eatons Hill Hotel, Brisbane and will jump over the ditch to New Zealand to play Auckland on Sunday April 29 at Logan Campbell Centre.

Through taking quantum sonic leaps with this new album Gossip, the quintet—Kellin Quinn [vocals, keyboards], Jack Fowler [lead guitar], Nick Martin [rhythm guitar], Justin Hills [bass], and Gabe Barham [drums]—reach the artistic heights they began angling for nearly 10 years ago, while amplifying musical hallmarks such as soaring and soul-striking vocals, wildly catchy riffing, and intricate beats.

At its heart, the record reflects not only creative progression, but personal as well. “The story of Gossip really begins in me transitioning from a boy to a man,” admits Kellin. “I grew up basically my entire life playing music in this group. This record is me figuring out who I’m supposed to be as a musician, a husband, and a father. It’s a hard, scary, rewarding, and daring process that gets chronicled in the lyrics. Musically, I feel like it’s the first Sirens record that sounds specifically like us. We took chances, experimented, and continued to do what we do best: create art. It’s something new. It has an authentic sound that we’ve been working towards all this time.”

Ultimately, the risks yield Sleeping With Sirens’ boldest, brightest, and best work to date. “No matter what anyone says, I  want to encourage listeners to take risks of their own,” Kellin leaves off. “Our band took a chance. We’re going to back it. That’s all you can do as an artist. This is my diary. It’s who I am.”

Belle And Sebastian

Scottish Indie royalty Belle & Sebastian return to Australia in May next year for the first time since their massively successful tour in 2015. With their latest single ‘I’ll Be Your Pilot’ signalling a fresh new wave of activity for the band, the Australian shows wrap up a global tour, with performances confirmed for The Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Perth’s Astor Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane.

To commemorate 20 years since the bands previous multi-EP release – 1997’s ‘Dog On Wheels’, ‘Lazy Line Painter Jane’ and ‘3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light’ – the twee-pop superstars have also announced the release of three more EPs in quick succession this December. All titled ‘How To Solve Our Human Problems’, the first EP will be released on December 8, the second on January 19, and the final instalment landing on February 16, just ahead of their tour down under.

In addition to re-embracing short-form releases, the project finds the group exploring an off-the-cuff, anything-goes ethos, experimenting with sounds, formats and themes.

We are delighted to be coming back to Australia in 2018, with some new songs to play for you.” Said frontman Stuart Murdoch ahead of the upcoming shows down-under.

Belle & Sebastian formed in 1996. They have released nine studio album,  received critical acclaim from outlets including Pitchfork, SPIN, Rolling Stone, NPR, NME and The New York Times and have produced a back catalogue of both critical and cult-status hits that have helped the band sell out venues for over two decades.

The band arrive in Perth on May 2 before heading east for shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Chronixx

Jamaican musician Chronixx is one of reggae’s leading lights, bringing together the traditions of dub, dancehall, ragga, soul and hip hop into his own fusion which has put reggae back on the main stage.

Discovered in 2014 by Jimmy Fallon during a chance meeting during a Jamaican holiday, Chronixx quickly turned heads around the world after performing on his show, with his first EP topping reggae charts in the US, UK and Japan.  With supports for the likes of The Stone Roses, Nas and Lauryn Hill, Chronixx has proven his cross-genre appeal, with his debut album earlier this year ‘Chronology’ hitting the iTunes top 20 in several countries.

The February tour will awaken reggae fans across the country as Chronixx and his band Zincfence Redemption hit stages in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

Chronixx said: “I’m so excited to be back performing live in Australia for my fans, where I’ll be performing new tracks from the Chronology record as well as the classics. See you soon!”

Busby Marou, a duo from Rockhampton and currently touring with Elton John, will be presenting their third and newest album Postcards From The Shell House, an ARIA #1 album. Amazing live music, local street food vendors and Moore Beer on tap, events like this are often seen in the laneways of Melbourne, the Live Lane Festival is certain to attract a large audience in Port Macquarie.

“It’s been quite a few years since we promoted Pete Murray here is Port Macquarie when he played to a sold out crowd. It’s great to finally have him coming back as we know he and Busby Marou are town favourites. To combine great music with street food and local beer in Port Macquarie’s Industrial Area will undoubtable create a unique event the likes this town has never seen before”. Scott Mesiti, MJR Presents.

I Love The 90’s

Squeeze

South London new-wave legends Squeeze are headed for Australia in 2018 for a run of not-to-be-missed shows. With hits like ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Tempted’ and ‘Up The Junction’, Squeeze will bring the soundtrack of the 70s and 80s into full focus with special guest punk poet Dr John Cooper Clarke.

Squeeze first formed in 1973, brought together by an ad in a sweetshop window. By 1977 they had made their recording debut and enjoyed a string of hits which lasted until 1982, the maturity of their songs outliving their initial burst of chart activity on the back of New Wave.

Over the years there have been solo careers and occasional separations, but the Ivor Novello Award-winning act have been a consistent fixture of the UK and US music scenes over four decades, with recent activity including the critically acclaimed album soundtrack to the BBC sitcom ‘Cradle to Grave’ in 2015 and a triumphant return to Glastonbury in 2016.

Their first trip downunder since re-forming a decade ago, Squeeze have never been more vibrant, relevant and on point as they couple their pop sensibilities with poignant lyrics and a live show that’s not to be missed.

The line-up will feature founding member Glenn Tilbrook, long-standing touring members Stephen Large & Simon Hanson, and the new addition of bassist Yolanda Charles and Steve Smith on percussion.
