I must confess, apart from his celebrity status and the fact that he is married to Nicole Kidman, I didn’t really know much about Keith Urban. I hadn’t taken the opportunity to listen to his music, despite my husband owning one of his CDs.
With the news of his impending Australian tour, I decided that as part of his Christmas gift, I would take my husband to a show. We had no idea what to expect.
The setting was the… Continue

PHIL EMMANUEL, KEV WINDROSS, 1989 & HIGH NOON @ THE MANSFIELD TAVERN, BRISBANE - FRIDAY, 21ST AUGUST 2009
It’s a shame there weren’t more fans at this gig on Friday night to enjoy the welcome return of the brilliant guitarist to Brisbane’s live gig circuit. Not only did they miss out on the amazing musicianship of a man widely recognised as Australia’s Greatest Electric Guitar Player, but also the wide range of musical… Continue

Having never been to an Alice Cooper show, it was with some anticipation that we attended the first concert of the Australian leg of his new 'Theatre of Death' tour. Whilst attendance numbers were down, the diehard fans flocked to the front waiting for the show to commence. It was mainly an older crowd with a smattering of youngsters, some dressed in character and looking very much like their idol. The night started with a giant “Theatre of Death”… Continue

THE ANGELS @ TWIN TOWNS SERVICES CLUB, COOLANGATTA QLD
FRIDAY 7TH AUGUST 2009
Twin Towns was all fired up last Friday night when legendary Aussie rock band, The Angels, flew into town and played to a packed auditorium. In spite of a cold that caused Doc to struggle with his voice during the night, the band gave a brilliant performance. In fact, it seemed that most of the appreciative crowd never even noticed the fact that Doc was close to losing his voice on… Continue

The night was titled “One of the Boys” and the music industry boys and girls certainly lived up to the hype of looking after their own. They were all there to support Mick Cocks of Rose Tattoo who is suffering from liver cancer.
The night, hosted by Glenn A Baker, started early by music industry standards but the Enmore Theatre was already packed with a crowd ready to rock the night away and part with their cash for items bought,… Continue

Sydney’s Revesby Workers Club rocked hard – and loud! – with The Angels, supported by local rockers, Black Label, who definitely set the pace for the evening. With musical influences such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, ZZ Top and even The Angels themselves, their hard-edged brand of blues-rock was a perfect warm-up for the legendary Aussie band.
Black Label is a hard-hitting five piece rock and roll band hailing from Sydney’s south western… Continue

NOISEWORKS @ THE MANSFIELD TAVERN, BRISBANE - SATURDAY 6TH JUNE 2009
On Saturday night, Brisbane’s Mansfield Tavern played host to one of our nation’s premier rock bands, Noiseworks. A favourite on the Australian pub rock scene in the 80’s, Noiseworks’ following has remained strong over the years, even after the band split in 1992. When Noiseworks finally reunited in 2007, the news was met with overwhelming enthusiasm from fans around the country and I was one of them so… Continue

BABY ANIMALS @ THE MANSFIELD TAVERN, BRISBANE - 24TH APRIL, 2009
I must admit that, while I've always loved the Baby Animals' music, I had never actually had the pleasure of seeing them perform. That is, until Friday night when the band brought their hard-hitting brand of Aussie rock and roll to Brisbane's Mansfield Tavern.
I was keen to see for myself if they still had the same energy that made them… Continue

Long recognised as having one… Continue

THE ANGELS AT THE PAVILION – GYMPIE QLD 15th MARCH 2009
Well, this is it folks. The Angels ‘Night Attack’ tour of North Queensland was about to come to an end and, at the risk of sounding corny, it definitely was ‘over the top’. There was no place more fitting for the finale than the home of The Muster, Gympie. The venue was The Pavillion in Gympie’s showgrounds. The audience was a diverse assortment of ages and personalities. Most,… Continue

REVIEW: DEF LEPPARD, WIN Entertainment Centre, Wollongong 10 November 2008 Continue
Rock Gods or Rock Relics? That question was quickly answered when Def Leppard took to the stage after a 16 year absence from our shores.
Visiting the country to promote their new album, 'Songs from the Sparkle Lounge', the multi-award winning band strutted onto stage in true Rock God style and proceeded to belt out tune after tune from an impressive…
