Next Exit Festival

‘NEXT EXIT FESTIVAL’ ANNOUNCES HUGE LINE-UP FOR INAUGURAL EVENT
Australia’s newest music festival celebrates local talent and highlights regional towns in its debut year!

PORT MACQUARIE JUST ADDED! ON SALE AT 14/4/21 – 11AM

ALL SHOWS SELLING FAST –   http://bit.ly/NEFonsale TICKETS ONLY $89+BF

NEXT EXIT Festival, the latest edition to the Australian festival circuit, has officially unveiled the line-up for its inaugural event today, jam packed with local Aussie talent.

The announcement also includes a pledge from the promoters to shine a light on not only Australian music but regional towns across New South Wales, ensuring that live music reaches fans outside of Australia’s capital cities during such a challenging time for the country.

Setting its sights on the road less travelled, NEXT EXIT Festival includes four new events that will take place in regional locations across NSW this May, with live music from psych-rock outfit Ocean Alley, Spacey Jane, which recently became the highest-ranking Australian artist of the Hottest 100, Northern Beaches four-piece Dear Seattle, NSW local Merci, Mercy and sister duo CLEWS.

Kicking off in Bicentennial Park in Tamworth on Friday 21 May, the full festival line-up will make its way around regional NSW, with additional shows in Port Macquarie, Gosford and Batemans Bay, before finishing up in the picturesque surrounds of the Mudgee Showgrounds in Mudgee.

NEXT EXIT, which takes place over two weekends in May, will place an emphasis on engaging local businesses to partake in the event, with a goal to drive economic activity, encourage regional tourism and highlight local tastemakers and artisans.

After only a scattering of shows in the last six months, most of them in capital cities, we are super excited to be touring with Next Exit Festival to four awesome spots across country and coastal New South Wales. Said Ocean Alley’s Mitch Galbraith.

We spend most of our time working and relaxing near the coast so we love playing in smaller cities anywhere near the water. We also get to take our show out west to Mudgee and Tamworth and we’re stoked to visit the states interior and have some good times with the folks there. These regional places are so much fun to tour because of the locals that are so welcoming and always up for a good old town blowout. Their support means we can keep coming back to play shows and festivals and give these awesome places the live music experience they deserve.

We pass so many ‘Next Exit’ signs on the highway and often drive past with only our destination in sight,” said MJR Presents’ Head Of Touring Australia, Scott Mesiti.

“The original concept for ‘NEXT EXIT’ Festival was to help bushfire-affected towns, regenerate tourism and hire as many local suppliers as possible. So much has happened since then but our aim remains the same. We have designed a safe festival that can be delivered under current restrictions and will employ many people from our industry who have sat on the sidelines for too long.

In late 2019 and early 2020, New South Wales was subject to some of the worst bushfires in Australian history. As of 28 January 2020, the fires in NSW had burnt 5.3 million hectares (6.7% of the State), including 2.7 million hectares in national parks (37% of the State’s national park estate), and were responsible for countless millions of dollars in damages to businesses.

NEXT EXIT Festival has been made possible by being a successful applicant of RISE funding, which will allow MJR Presents to deliver an affordable for regional communities across New South Wales in 2021.

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

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

‘HEAVY METAL RULES’
TOUR RE-SCHEDULED UNTIL OCTOBER 2021 + HUGE BRISBANE MINI FEST LINEUP ANNOUNCED!

Huge news for Brisbane’s show – the line-up has been expanded, extended, made bigger and girthier. Joining the line-up at Eatons Hill are Brisbane’s favourite rock sons Dead Letter Circus, Brissy party pirates Lagerstein, NZ’s metal sensations Devilskin, and Sydney rough rifflords Bare Bones!

Steel Panther‘s Heavy Metal Rules Australian and New Zealand tour dates (with special guests Sevendust on the Australian dates) are now officially re-scheduled until October 2021! MJR Presents are bringing the Metal Mayhem down under later than expected, but better late than pregnant, ahem, never!

Don’t think of it as being let down by a lover, think of it as your lover extending, teasing and delaying your pleasure until you can take it no more and you crave their smooth, heavy-metal riff-laden touch and beg for more! That’s the kind of considerate lovers Steel Panther are. It’s not like they are out playing other shows and cheating on you, right? They Are? Oh.

October 2021 will FINALLY (!) see the wildest, wettest, dirtiest, hardest, heaviest most rocking heavy metal tour to hit Australian shores ever in the history of anything – EVER. MJR Presents are bringing Steel Panther to Australia once again for a Heavy Metal Party the likes of which have never been seen by human eyes and they are bringing none other than their US mates Sevendust along for the party! This tour STILL marks the largest venues that Steel Panther will have played in Australia due to growing demand every time they return down under.

In true Oprah style, you feel the steel! You feel the steel! EVERYBODY gets to FEEL THE STEEL because HEAVY METAL RULES!

The ‘HEAVY METAL RULES TOUR’ in October 2021 will drop anchor in New Zealand at Powerstation on Sunday October 24th, quickly get dressed and then dash across the ditch to meet up with Sevendust and double-team Australia –  Tuesday 26th October at Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne, Thursday 28th October at Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Newcastle, Friday 29th October at Hordern Pavilion, Sydney and then for the final blow-out at Eaton’s Hill Hotel, Brisbane on Saturday 30th October 2021 for a festival vibe session alongside (insert bands).

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. They released their latest album ‘Blood & Stone’ in October 2020 through Rise Records.

Current ticket holders do not need to do anything! Your tickets will be valid for the new dates including the new Newcastle venue! If you can no longer attend (and you will be missed!) please contact your ticketing point of purchase for a refund!
Please rest assured that Steel Panther, MJR Presents and all venues will be holding these events in the most COVID-Safe manner as possible. We will be regularly reviewing the restrictions and ensuring that the show is compliant of the requirements at the time of the show.

UB40


UB40 PUSH AUSTRALIAN 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR TO 2022

UK Legends UB40 refuse to give up on Australian fans – shift Australian tour to late 2022!

Existing tickets are valid for all new shows – or Buy here 👉 bit.ly/UB40Aus

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 postponed until March 2022.

Originally set to tour Australia in October 2020 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 reshuffle tour plans.

Despite the many unknowns in international touring, UB40 are staying optimistic, and have locked in fresh new dates 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.

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.”

Having previously sold out their 2015, 2017 and 2018 tours, the band return to Australia with plans to perform previously uncharted territory; hitting Sunshine Coast and The Gold Coast for the first time, as well return performances in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Wollongong.

The ‘40th Anniversary For The Many Tour’ will offer audiences a taste of classic hits like ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘I Got You Babe’ and ‘Can’t Help falling In Love With You’, as well as tracks from the latest release ‘For The Many’ which will be performed live in Australia for the first time.

One of the UK biggest exports UB40 have achieved over forty top 40 hits in their native Britain with international sales of over 100 million records, the band are one of the biggest UK music acts of all time, and continue to record charting albums while touring across the world including regular trips to Australia where they have firmly found a place in the hearts of fans.

After four decades of success including their hit singles, international stadium tours and festival headline slots the band continue with their key founding members and songwriting core, staying true to and building on the legacy and ethos of the band. 

UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals). The band also features Martin Meredith (sax) and Laurence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullings (keyboards) creating a genre-defining synergy of horns and rhythm section that are uniquely UB40.

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!

James Smith

CONTROVERSIAL PERSONAL TRAINER JAMES SMITH ANNOUNCES FIRST EVER SPEAKING TOUR OF AUSTRALIA

Loud, crass and completely unapologetic; James Smith takes aim at influencers, fake fitness bloggers and dangerous health fads in his “Live and Uncensored” Tour.

Opinionated, blunt and often described as the ‘Gordon Ramsay of the fitness world’, personal trainer and self-proclaimed disrupter of the fitness industry James Smith is far removed from the squeaky clean, evenly rounded fitness models seen in instagram feeds around the world. He’s the blunt, no-BS media star turning the entire fitness world on its head, calling out liars and putting facts first, and now he’s heading around Australia to shed a light fitness truths and industry lies, alongside the release of his debut book ‘Not A Diet Book’, scheduled for January 2020.

With shows planned for Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, the British fitness star and author will walk audiences through his incredible journey so far, from door to door salesmen to becoming one of the world’s fastest growing and most controversial figures in fitness. He’ll also be shedding light on common misconceptions within the industry, from fitness fads to flat out lies; taking aim at instagram models promoting useless brands to paid partnerships, pseudo-science, narcissism and the hazards of spreading misinformation and selling a dream.

“Buzzing to announce my first ever events on Australian soil” Said James Smith “An evening with me won’t make you leaner or more muscular but it will empower you to make subtle changes to your life that will last with you forever. Anyone for a beer afterwards?

Before becoming famous for the brutally honest form of PT he’s known for today, James Smith – like almost 73% of Australians – struggled with body issues, and attempted to navigate the complex world of fitness both personally and for his clients. After years of frustration with the industry he has now become the number one disrupter of the multi-billion dollar industry that has been dishing out lies to unaware people for decades. James Smith made the decision to use his knowledge for good over commercial gain.

In his debut speaking tour – much like his renowned videos – James will give his unique take on health and fitness, providing simple advice designed to cut through wellness, myths and marketing and rely on fact and common sense.

Tickets for James Smith’s Australian speaking tour go on sale at 10:00am [AEDT]

‘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

One Love Presents – Sean Paul & Shaggy

Just Announced – Australia, Fiji has just joined the Sydney line up on Friday 31st of Jan as very special guest support to Sean Paul + Shaggy

 

With the inaugural Australian-edition of ‘One Love Festival’ selling out three months in advance, headliners Sean Paul and Shaggy have announced that they’ll now be heading out on an East Coast tour of Australia next February!

The Jamaican dancehall legend Sean Paul and ‘Mr. Boombastic’ himself, Shaggy will be taking their tour around Australia, with arena-sized shows planned for Melbourne at the Forum and Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion , making it the duo’s largest Australian tour ever.

“Australia, it’s been far too long since I’ve had the chance to perform in your wonderful country” Said headlining act Sean Paul. “I was beyond excited to know that I was heading to the Gold Coast for One Love Festival. Knowing I now get to visit Sydney and Melbourne is the icing on the cake! Shaggy and me – we can’t wait to party with you all!”

Having both sold out their previous Australian tours, Shaggy – the dancehall/hip- hop/reggae artist behind such notable hits as ‘It Wasn’t Me’, ‘Boombastic’, ‘Luv Me, Luv Me’ and ‘Angel’ – and Sean Paul – the Jamaican rapper that reached global popularity with hits like ‘Temperature’, ‘Get Busy’ and ‘No Lie’ and hit collaborations with Beyonce, Simple Plan, Clean Bandit and Sia continue to prove the world’s obsession with international dancehall.

Don’t miss your chance to see two of the biggest names in reggae / dancehall on stage together for the first and possibly only time ever this February!
