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.

“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.

 We were all dead excited about getting over to Australia and finally performing for our fans down underSaid John Power. I know we’re going to want to make up for lost time and show you all what a great live band we are, so I’m expecting the band to be on fire when we get down there in October!”

Originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded guitar bands of all time, The La’sand Shack, Cast released four albums, had ten top 10 singles and were described by Noel Gallagher as ‘a religious experience’ after seeing them live, before disbanding in 2001.

Their 1995 hit record ‘All Change’ became the biggest selling debut album of all timefor Polydor Records, and helped the band secure fan bases around the world. A decade after splitting, the bands original line-up reunited with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) for their new record ‘Troubled Times’.


Tickets to the bands original shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth will still be valid.

MJR in Association with Solo and Vector Presents

After selling out their first ever trip to Australia in 2016, James are preparing for a triumphant return in 2018 with their ‘Living in Extraordinary Times Tour’. This time the band are sporting a brand-new album ‘Living in Extraordinary Times” as well as all their swag of British classics.

James’ 1993 hit ‘Laid’ became the soundtrack to early 90s alternative radio before finding a second life through its use in teen hit American Pie films. James had already had a decade of hits by the time Laid arrived, having risen from Manchester’s legendary Factory Records scene into one of the biggest UK bands in the world by the dawn of the 90s. With alternative hits in Australia including Laid, Sit Down, Sound, Getting Away With It (All Messed Up), She’s a Star and Just Like Fred Astaire, and selling over 25 million records worldwide, the band were triple j staples for over fifteen years, yet took nearly three decades to hit Australian shores.

2016 saw the release of Girl at the End of the World, their most commercially and critically successful album for nearly twenty years, which came close to knocking Adele’s 25 off the prized number 1 spot of the UK album chart.

With sell out shows, great reviews and mad fans, some travelling across Australia to ensure they didn’t miss a single show, a return visit was inevitable.

‘Looking forward to playing to the boys and the girls at the end of the world again (from our corner of the world). if you enjoyed our last trip, evangelize this one to your friends, and we can make this a regular liaison,’ said Tim Booth.

“The vibe in every room was just electric and every night was different to the last. We can’t wait to get back there and do it all again, this time with our ‘Living in Extraordinary Times’ record.” said Jim Glennie.

The album seems to touch upon contemporary fissures in society, with Tim Booth commenting: “We knew something was up when Leicester city won the league then Brexit, then Trump. It is as if we’d slipped into an alternate reality, a Philip K Dick reality. We are living in extraordinary times.”

The tour will visit Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth as well as taking James to Adelaide for the very first time.

“Sometimes rounds off James’s first ever Australian gig and there wouldn’t be many in the audience who didn’t feel privileged to be there.” – The Sydney Morning Herald

“As the band left the stage for the final time, they promised not to wait 35 years next time. Let’s hope they hold true to their word.” – Scenestr

“Australia has really been missing out. It’s taken 34 years for Manchester alt-rockers James to visit Australia, but they made it worth the wait.” – The West Australian

Engelbert Humperdinck – the legendary live entertainer – has announced his eagerly anticipated return down under, with ‘The Man I Want To Be Tour,’ set to land in theatres around Australia and New Zealand in March 2019.

Returning for the first time since his sold out run in 2015, Engelbert will be performing in iconic theatres around the country, from Sydney’s State Theatre to Melbourne’s Palais, showcasing music from his latest record “50”, as well seminal hits like “Quando Quando Quando”, “Release Me”, “A Man Without Love”, “The Last Waltz” and “Am I That Easy To Forget”.

Despite growing up extraordinarily shy and the youngest of ten children, Engelbert Humperdinck skyrocketed to fame in 1967, after his single ‘Release Me’ famously blocked The Beatles from a scoring the number one chart position with their new track ‘Penny Lane’. Following on from 50 weeks in the UK charts, the Leicester based entertainer continued his meteoric rise to fame, becoming a sex symbol to women across the globe and delivering one of the most iconic voices of his generation.

With a career spanning almost 50 years, Engelbert amassed 64 Gold albums, 35 Platinum records, four Grammy nominations, a Gold Globe and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He has performed for the Queen four times, for several presidents, alongside music legends like Ray Charles, Tom Jones and Dean Martin and remains one of few musicians alive today, able to have called Elvis a close friend.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to spend an intimate night with Engelbert.

Steel Panther


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

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!










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.
