James Smith

CONTROVERSIAL FITNESS FIGURE JAMES SMITH ANNOUNCES HUGE AUSTRALIAN SPEAKING TOUR

ON SALE NOW

Loud, crass and completely unapologetic; James Smith will change your life on his new tour which takes aim at toxic myths within our current ways of thinking and dismantles everything we think we know about the path to feeling fulfilled, being happy and going after success.

The world’s fastest-growing online author and personal trainer James Smith is back to expose the lies we’re made to believe living the “normal life” and to change the way you think about it.

Having grown up just outside of London England James, who has an international following, has announced that he’ll once again be hitting the road in Australia, to deliver another honest, unapologetic and outspoken, yet erudite, authentic and endlessly passionate talk about your future life, and his.

After a run of multiple sell out shows in cities around Australia in 2019, James Smith will take to huge indoor venues in 2021 to dismantle your current thoughts with hard-hitting home truths mixed with a significant dose of tough love on the way, he’s not here to solve your problems, but to reset your thought processes.

Smith, who has more than one million social media followers, said: “I’m incredibly excited to be hitting the road in Australia again. Not A Life Coach will hopefully bring a different perspective to how readers perceive their own mindset. In a world where people are so caught up with how they look they can often overlook how they feel, how they see the world, how they see success and how they judge their own progress. I will show people how to accomplish more, and how to have a different outlook on life with every chapter. From mental wealth, relationships and motivation, to uncovering why playing it safe by societies standards can be tremendously risky. I’m not your life coach, but I reckon I can change your life”.

The follow up to James Smith’s international number one bestseller ‘Not a Diet Book’, which hit number one on the Sunday Times bestseller list and sold more than 250,000 copies is also set to land in late 2020.

‘Not A Life Coach’ will cover everything from Self-worth, mental ‘wealth’ all the way to comfort zones and escapism, values, success, limiting beliefs and even relationships will also be covered in the book, providing readers with a sneak preview of what’s to come in James Smith’s upcoming live shows

Steelpanther

STEEL PANTHER ANNOUNCES RE-SCHEDULED DATES FOR AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND
’HEAVY METAL RULES’ TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS

The wildest, wettest, dirtiest, hardest, heaviest most rocking heavy metal tour to hit Australia and New Zealand shores ever in the history of anything ever is coming….a little later than originally planned.  For obvious reasons, the ‘HEAVY METAL RULES TOUR’ re-scheduled dates are as follows:

Sunday 14th February – Powerstation, Auckland
Tuesday 16th February – Margaret Court Arena,Melbourne
Thursday 18th February – NEX, Newcastle
Friday 19th February – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Saturday 20th February – Eaton’s Hill, Brisbane

For the uninitiated, Steel Panther was formed in 2000 and is comprised of Michael Starr (lead singer), Satchel (guitarist), Lexxi Foxx (bass) and Stix Zadinia (drums). Hailing from Los Angeles, the epicenter for rock n’ roll in all its debauchery and glamour, Steel Panther has established themselves as the world’s premier party band, melding hard rock virtuosity with parody and criminally good looks. Steel Panther is a global phenomenon with four full-length albums, touring across the world, platinum-level YouTube status and a #13 debut for the new album Heavy Metal Rules on the ARIA charts.
Rolling Stone avowed, “There’s a reason Steel Panther have transcended their origins as a cover band playing the Sunset Strip,” while Metal Sucks declared, “Steel Panther’s concept is genius…their songwriting is…preposterously snappy – and relatable.”

Along for the ride are Sevendust, who were last here in 2019 on their tour celebrating the 2018 album ‘All I See is War’. While demonstrating their musical mastery accumulated over more than 25 years as a band and simultaneously destroying all expectations for their live show, Sevendust show no signs of slowing down. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger.

Tickets already purchased for the Heavy Metal Rules Tour are still valid for the Re-Scheduled Dates in 2021 and Tickets are now on sale again at mjrpresents.com.

UB40

UB40 RESCHEDULE TOUR –  CELEBRATE 40th ANNIVERSARY & FIRST ALBUM IN MORE THAN 5 YEARS

HOUSE OF SHEM JOINING AS SUPPORT! 

The UK’s most successful reggae band, UB40 have announced that, due to travel restrictions and for the safety of fans, band members and their crew, their eagerly anticipated return to Australia will be pushed back until next year.

Originally set to tour Australia in October as part of their 40th anniversary, and to perform hits from their latest release ‘For The Many’, it is with regret that UB40’s Australian tour now joins a growing list of international acts that have been forced to postpone.

Despite the many unknowns in international touring, UB40 are staying optimistic, and have locked in April / May 2021 as a return date for their return to Australian shores.

We always look forward to trips down under, but we know it’s only a temporary delay, we will be back. Said the band in a statement todayThe most important thing is that we all stay safe and we’ll see you on the other side of this ordeal.

This also follows the news of UB40’s lead singer Duncan Campbell, who suffered a stroke in August. He is still recovering but is showing good signs of a strong and speedy recovery. Robin addsIt was obviously a shock and very worrying when we heard about Duncan having his stroke, but he’s having a well deserved rest and continues to recover at home”.

For those that have managed to score passes to the band’s Australian tour, tickets will still remain valid for all upcoming shows. Australian tour promoters MJR Presents have encouraged all ticket holders to hang on to their tickets, in order to continue supporting the live music industry.

We strongly encourage all ticket holders to hang on to their tickets, not just to this show, but to all upcoming tours they’ve had their hearts set onsaid MJR Presents director Scott MesitiKeep them on your fridge, or your calendar or your desk as a simple reminder that we’ll get through this, and when we come out the other side, there’s going to be some amazing live music waiting for us.”

Tickets for UB40’s Australian tour are on sale now.

DREAM THEATER, twice Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans, are thrilled to announce their April 2020 Australian leg of their most recent ‘Evening With’ touring cycle; featuring a celebration of the band’s latest record, Distance Over Time, and their acclaimed milestone achievement, Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory. The Distance Over Time Tour – Celebrating 20 Years Of Scenes From A Memory will see the band perform their full and complete 3-hour set for audiences throughout Europe.

Presented in Australia by MJR Presents, Tickets for the The Distance Over Time Tour – Celebrating 20 Years Of Scenes From A Memory, as well as VIP packages can be found at http://mjrpresents.wpengine.com or http://dreamtheater.net/tour/ once on sale. The Australian theatre tour dates are Thursday April 23 at Brisbane’s QPAC, Saturday April 25 at Sydney’s ICC, Sunday April 26 at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre and Monday April 27 at Adelaide’s AEC Theatre.

The initial leg of this tour garnered plenty of critical commendation and audience acclaim due in large part to its diverse setlist of fan favourites spanning the quintet’s venerable 30-plus year career! Featuring tracks from DREAM THEATER’S latest release, Distance Over Time (InsideOutMusic /Sony Music), and selections from their comprehensive discography along with a nightly celebration marking the 20th Anniversary of their seminal concept album Metropolis Part 2: Scenes From A Memory, the band has established a precedent on this tour of a nightly not-to-be- missed standout performance. DREAM THEATER will continue that trend on the European tour, creating an evening of over 2 hours and 45 minutes of iconic DREAM THEATER at their masterful best, making this a milestone concert event that long-time fans and newcomers alike will remember for years to come.

DREAM THEATER guitarist John Petrucci comments, ‘The response to Distance Over Time has been overwhelmingly positive and we are really looking forward to playing some of the songs from that album live for our European audiences in an ‘ Evening With’ setting along with our full headlining show production. For those of you who were there when we premiered Scenes From A Memory live in Europe 20 years ago, this will not only be a trip down memory lane but also the chance to see it presented in a completely new light and the way it was always intended to be. Our updated presentation has all-new animated video content depicting the characters and storyline through the entire show as they’ve never been ‘scene’ before! For those of our fans who were either not born yet, too young, or had not yet been introduced to DT 20 years ago, this will be a fresh opportunity to experience Scenes live for the first time in its entirety. We can’t wait to perform for all of you!

‘ELVIS-THEMED’ NIRVANA TRIBUTE ACT ‘ELVANA’ ANNOUNCE DEBUT AUSTRALIAN TOUR TO GET YOU ALL SHOOK UP!

The King Is Back, and he’s playing grunge!

Fresh from sell out shows at The O2, Albert Hall and main-stage appearances at both the legendary Download Festival and the iconic Glastonbury Festival, the world’s best – and only – Elvis Themed Nirvana tribute act ‘ELVANA’ have today announced their debut Australian tour.

From Seattle to Mississippi, to the bowels of Disgraceland, ELVANA’s Australian tour is set to raise music icons from the dead; rock & Roll will finally collide with grunge and the 1950’s will well and truly come alive as Elvis replaces Kurt and Nirvana get a front man wrapped head to toe in red leather and blue sequins.

What started as little more than a joke, with four friends from North-East England forming an Elvis fronted Nirvana tribute act for a fancy dress party, has now snowballed into a completely unique live experience that has taken the world by storm. Comprising of Elvis,Danny Cobain, Rob Novoselic and Bobby Grohl, ELVANA takes audiences on a journey through Nirvana’s catalogue whilst splicing in grunged up sections of the king of Rock & Roll finest moments, culminating in an audible orgasm of overdrive old school Rockabilly. It smells like teen spirit, tastes like fools gold and sounds like nothing you’ve heard before!

“Ladies and gentleman of Australiashire! You are about to witness something you’ve never ever seen before… In a good way! We couldn’t be any more excited to bring our lil’ show down under and boy are we gonna have one hell of a time!? Come as you are, mate”Said Elvana frontman “Elvis.

The world has seen Nudist Priest (a hairy, naked version of Judas Priest), they tolerated Tragedy, the all- metal Bee Gees tribute act and smiled politely at the concept of Okilly Dokilly, a Ned Flanders themed band, but fans of rock & roll haven’t yet experienced the polished (but intensely sweaty) live performance of ELVANA; a journey through Nirvana’s catalogue with the addition of grunged-up sections of Elvisí finest moments, culminating in a mega mash-up of hits from two of the world’s most acclaimed acts.

Kicking off in Perth in May 2020, ELVANA are set to get Australian audiences All Shook Up, as they take their unique blend of 1950’s inspired grunge-rock antics around the country for the very first time, with shows planned for Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Tickets for Elvana’s debut Australian tour go on sale at 10:00AM [AEDT]  Friday 06 December via Mjrpresents.com

Set to hit Australian shores in March 2021, Creed’s variety show – which includes live music, stand-up comedic and untold stories from both his life and time on ‘The Office’ – will land in capital cities around Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Perth.

Port Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival

EVENT POSTPONED TO SAT 22ND FEB

Due to the unprecedented bushfire conditions we are saddened to announce the Port Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival has been postponed for 2019 and has a NEW DATE of Saturday 22nd February 2020. 

We were hoping the fires would be out by now and we’d all be shouting our legendary Fire Fighters a beer at the festival this weekend. But, with this week’s weather predictions and personally knowing so many affected it’s hard to promote an event when you know so many of your community are hurting. We want to push back the festival to February to give the town enough time to recover and focus on doing our bit to help in the mean time. We apologise to any of those who may be put out but hope you can understand under the circumstances.

All current ticket previously purchased will remain valid for February 22nd event. Anyone that can not make the newly scheduled date can receive a full refund. Ticketek will email you shortly about your options.

Tickets for the new date are online now and available for purchase.

 

**************************************

Having recently announced its eagerly anticipated return – after a brief hiatus in 2017 – the beloved Port
Macquarie Beer & Cider Festival has officially served up its first round of live music acts for 2020. Taking to the stage from 2:00pm until the event calls for ‘last drinks’ at 7:30pm is Hunter Valley based artist William Crighton, who’s heartfelt indie-folk has been developing a major following around Australia. Performing alongside William Crighton is blues and roots local Mitch King, Jangle-pop 5-piece
The Butlers, Barrell House and east coast shredder Minnie Marks.

In addition to a smorgasbord of amazing live and local music, the festival will also be armed with some of Australia’s best Beer and Cider makers, including Currumbin Water’s Balter Brewing, Byron Bay legends Stone &Wood, Wicked Elf, Capital Brewing Co, Franks Cider and plenty more.

Set with the serene Hastings River as backdrop, the event will be held Saturday Feb 22, 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.

A special bus timetable will ensure attendees can enjoy the afternoon of tastings without having to worry about driving home.

The Port Macquarie Beer and Cider Festival will kick off at 1pm and go through until 7:30pm.
