EUROGLIDERS reunite for special ‘Live and Intimate’ Acoustic Shows - Experience a night of the Band's biggest hits and more!

One of Australia’s most successful recording bands from the 1980s, Eurogliders, are reuniting for some special Live & Intimate shows throughout 2014. After kicking off the year with a couple of intimate gigs at Lizottes, the Eurogliders have added a run of new dates to their acoustic tour. With a swag of hits to their name such as Heaven (Must Be There), We Will Together, City of Soul and Can’t Wait to See You to name a few, this special show will be the perfect stroll down memory lane for music fans. Not only that, but the band, which features Grace Knight (vocals) and Bernie Lynch (vocals, keys, guitar), will be giving audiences a sneak peek into some new material as well.

Eurogliders smashed onto the Australian music scene in the 80s with chart topping albums and singles. Formed by Bernie and Grace, they are considered one of the most successful touring bands of the 1980s. They not only toured to sell-out crowds in Australia, but also throughout NZ, Japan, the US and Canada. Their live shows promised a powerhouse performance of anthems. The band also won a swag of Countdown and MTV awards, and were asked to perform on the MTV New Year’s Eve show which saw them perform in-front of a televised audience of 65 million globally.

Grace says she didn’t think twice about reuniting the band. "I jumped at the chance of getting back onstage with Bernie and singing our old hits, plus a few newies," she says. "I like the challenge of jumping from one genre to another." Bernie says while it’s been a while between gigs, the band never actually broke up. "It always feels very comfortable up there on stage and we have played these songs so many times over the years that a break between shows allows the songs to breathe a little…like wine," he says. "They always come up a bit different, but they are the same recognisable songs that audiences have loved and sung along with in the past. This time will be no different."

Bernie says the shows will feature a bit of the past and a bit of now. "We move on as artists, as songwriters and as performers as well and simply must invigorate our own creativity from time to time by introducing some new songs and new ideas into the repertoire," he says. "We will sing all of the hits because we love them as much as our audiences, but we will be playing some more recent material as well".

Grace says she is really looking forward to seeing fans who spent their youth bopping at Eurogliders gigs with their kids in tow. "Hopefully parents will take the opportunity to embarrass their offspring by dancing and singing loudly," she says. A Eurogliders tour definitely brings up memories for the band and audiences alike. Grace fondly recalls the 80s and the band’s crazy touring schedule. "I think I spent that decade at a sewing machine backstage while making clothes for that night’s performance," she laughs. "Then there were the shenanigans on the tour bus that I couldn’t repeat in polite company and the camaraderie with the band and crew."

 

Don’t miss this chance to re-live the passion that made the Eurogliders one of Australia’s most beloved bands. This is a rare opportunity to experience the band in a very up-close-and-personal setting. Tickets are on sale now.
