UB40 Austalian Tour Dates

The UK’s most successful reggae band, UB40, will land in Australia this November for a national tour, including a bunch of regional dates seeing the band play from the city skylines of Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne, all the way through to the beach side havens of Coffs Harbour, Newcastle, Cairns and The Gold Coast.

Naming themselves after the unemployment benefit form, UB40 formed in 1978, releasing their debut album ‘Signing Off’ in August 1980 – considered by many to be one of the greatest reggae albums ever released by a British band. It was the start of a career that has since seen the band have over forty UK Top 40 hit singles and achieve sales of over 100 million records, making UB40 one of the most successful British groups of all-time. The band’s latest Top 30 album ‘Getting Over The Storm’ was awarded BBC Radio 2’s ‘Album Of The Week’ accolade and received 5-star reviews from the UK’s music press on its release in September 2013.

With nearly four decades of success that has spanned over forty hit singles, international stadium tours, festival headline slots and the dramatic departure of long time lead singer Ali Campbell back in 2008. The the remaining founding members, and principle songwriters, joined by new lead vocalist Duncan Campbell, have moved forward flourishing as they go, and keeping the UB40 legacy alive and well.
UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Brian Travers (sax and keyboards), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals).

The band also feature, Martin Meredith (sax) and Lawrence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullins (keyboards).

DCUP

After getting signed to prominent Australian dance label Sweat It Out after just one demo record, DCUP worked to build a unique brand of addictive dance electronica, bursting with power synths and sugar coated hooks, DCUP has now become synonymous with the nu-disco tag. With 2010’s monumental success of ‘Me No Speak Americano’ ,DCUP and collaborators Yolanda Be Cool quickly took the club scene by storm. As the springboard for DCUP’s international career, the song garnered more than 50 million plays on YouTube, giving MacLennan an audience far wider than he thought possible.

Through all the success of his shimmering electronic euro funk, McLennan’s collaborating once more with Yolanda Be Cool on their latest release, ‘Sugar Man’. Reinvisioning the classic 1970’s tune by Rodriguez, ‘Sugar Man’ promises to be their most dynamic track yet.

With new music in the works for 2015, DCUP “would like to make music that makes people join hands.” The future for DCUP is bright, with many more tunes in the pipeline – the world is excited to see what’s going to come next.

For one night only DCUP rolls in to Beach House at Port Macquarie Saturday 13th June

Playing C.ex Coffs Sunday 15th February.

 Live Nation by arrangement with S4 Productions are pleased to announce ANGUS & JULIA STONE will return to Australia in February 2015, touring nationally in support of their latest release, the captivating self-titled third album, ‘Angus & Julia Stone’.

The Summer Tour 2015 follows their recent sold-out Australian album tour, and sees Angus & Julia Stone heading to capital cities and regional areas.

Tickets for Angus & Julia Stone’s C.ex show will go on sale at 10am Friday 23rd of January – Tickets available through club reception or call 6652 3888 or online www.cex.com.au

Captivating the world with their award-winning, triple-platinum, ARIA #1 album ‘Down The Way’ – led by the gentle anthem and triple j hottest 100 #1 song ‘Big Jet Plane’ – their latest album, produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, is quite simply the best record the siblings have ever made.

Donavan Frankenreiter

Hawaii-based singer/guitarist/songwriter Donavon Frankenreiter will be undertaking a gigantic 17 date tour around his Bluesfest appearance.

An accomplished musician, surfer, and renowned for his iconic moustache and quick-witted humour, Frankenreiter’s tour will be focusing on the great surf towns of the country and regional Australia, anticipating a richer experience of people and place than the standard capital-city run that most international acts stick to.

The Australian Top 40 favourite will be performing material from his fifth full-length album Start Livin’ as well as old fan favourites. The follow-up to 2010’s popular ‘Glow’ is a selection of folk-infused songs that sweetly showcase Frankenreiter’s rich, honey-thick vocals and masterful guitar work. Start Livin’ bears all the intimacy of an impromptu back-porch performance and the tenderness of a treasured love letter, but also has a feel-good, up-tempo vibe throughout, including the title track that calls the listener to celebrate the moment.

We can’t think of a better guiding light for a live music experience and fans of his infectious, acoustic tunes will have plenty of opportunities to see him. This is sure to be one of the feel-good highlights of 2015 live music.

From The Jam

Bruce Foxton with From The Jam

“That’s Entertainment” Australian tour – March 2015

From The Jam, featuring former The Jam bassist Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings, return to Australia in March 2015 for their ‘That’s Entertainment’ tour.  Tickets for the tour go on sale 9am from usual outlets on July 14.

The Jam exploded onto the punk scene in 1977 delivering their ferocious mission statement – debut single ‘In The City’. With a catalogue that includes 18 UK Top 40 singles The Jam became the sound of The British youth and one of the greatest and biggest selling bands in British history. In 2000, Q magazine placed The Jam’s third album ‘All Mod Cons’ at Number 50 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.

From The Jam have gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary ‘live’ performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago. Audiences can expect to hear classic The Jam hits such as Down In The Tube Station At Midnight, Going Underground, Town Called Malice and The Modern World as well as some live favourites and songs from Bruce’s solo career.

Bruce Foxton’s new album, ‘Back In The Room’ is out now with special guests Paul Weller & Steve Cropper.

“There may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road and communicate so successfully with this Modern World” – LouderThanWar

JEFF MARTIN

After a hugely successful Australian & Canadian tour with The Tea Party, JEFF MARTIN will embark on a National Australian tour throughout March and April in solo mode.

It was a mammoth year for Jeff Martin in 2014.  The Tea Party frontman teamed up with The Superjesus’ SARAH McLEOD on their National ‘Man The Life Boats’ Tour, hit the studio with his fellow Tea Party bandmates for the recording of their first album in ten years, the critically acclaimed ‘The Ocean At The End’, sold out Theatre shows in both Canada & Australia and.  The fans were out in droves to capture the magic of the band that once was, and still remains and saw Jeff Martin completely in his element, with a fire in his head performing at his absolute finest alongside his fellow band mates.  The latter part of the year saw Jeff producing forthcoming records for local Australian artists The Black Diamond Express, Lepers and Crooks and Revelator (watch this space) and with a bunch of new material under his belt, Jeff will hit the road to perform around the country through March and April 2015.
