Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has announced his return down under later this year with a string of capital city dates in December, culminating what has been a banner year for the acoustic folk troubadour.

While some musical-comedy acts struggle to maintain audience interest for longer than a single song, Tenacious D are the exception that proves the rule. There's no question that the appeal is Jack Black, whose elastic vocal histrionics and Hollywood A-List status pull 95% of the focus. Not that Kyle Gass isn’t a great guitarist, with acoustic shredding as good as any of the other acoustic...

No disrespect to The Kooks, but I honestly had no idea how popular they really were. I really enjoyed their first album, Inside In/Inside Out, but always assumed that was the peak of their fame.


Turns out I was wrong. The Palais was packed to the rafters with their legion of fans. Even more interesting was that while the girls screamed and danced, it was their jocky,...

Hirsute genre-bending rock gods Led Zeppelin created mystical music that remains as fresh and vital today as it did in the '70s. In addition to selling over 200 million albums globally, this mountain-moving larger-than-life combo was renowned for their electrifying live performances and myth-making off-stage antics.


The public’s voracious and seemingly insatiable appetite for...

Italian rock legend Adelmo Fornaciari, more commonly known as Zucchero (meaning ‘sugar’), has been slaying hearts all over the world with his gravelly voice and gospel-inspired music for more than 40 years. Speaking to him, you wouldn’t have a clue he’s anything other than someone’s sunny nonno, but the man’s list of collaborations and achievements is frankly staggering.

It was hard to escape Paul Kelly and Crowded House when you grew up in the ‘90s, and as much as the angst of grunge appealed to me, so did the romance and honesty of Neil Finn’s songwriting, and the storytelling prowess of Paul Kelly. Arguably the most lauded singer/songwriters from New Zealand and Australia respectively, the anticipation that this was going to be a gig to remember was...

Tenacious D have always maintained a special love affair with audiences in Australia, but this will be their first trip here since the release of their Grammy-nominated third album, Rize Of The Fenix.


Joining The D for their Australian shows will be...
