It is essentially, about getting to the country heart – and showing that heart to audiences. The show is jam-packed with energy, fun, fantastic songs, great stories, and of course, a lot of country music. “We love to showcase country music in its many formats,” says Tom. “There is something in this concert for everyone.”

Heading to Tamworth Country Music Festival is always a highlight for the band. They’ve been making the annual pilgrimage for years now. Tom says they wouldn’t miss it for the world. “The festival is full of great music, mates and great times,” he says. “It is a highlight every year, we wouldn’t miss it.”

Aside from their show at Tamworth this year, The Wolfe Brothers will also be attending the Golden Guitars, with five nominations under their belt – Single Of The Year, Contemporary Country Album Of The Year, Country Music Capital News Group Or Duo Of The Year, APRA AMCOS Song Of The Year and CMC Video Of The Year. Post-festival, the band will be continuing to tour their chart-topping release around Australia throughout 2019.

The Wolfe Brothers Tamworth Country Music Festival show is a must-see concert – in fact it is more than a concert – it is a music party experience! So, don’t miss this one night only country music party. Come and celebrate with The Wolfe Brothers, and their mates, and celebrate their new show featuring tracks from Country Heart, plus all the hits from what is fast becoming one of Australia’s favourite country rock catalogues.

FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE ADD SECOND CAIRNS SHOW TO DEBUT AUSTRALIAN HEADLINE TOUR

Recently Grammy-nominated duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE today respond to overwhelming demand, announcing they will play a second show in Cairns, on their first ever Australian headline tour. The group will kick off their anticipated all-ages arena run at the Cairns Convention Centre with a newly announced show on Thursday 14 March, followed by a sold-out appearance on Friday 15 March. 



The band will also take in Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Monday 18 March, and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday 20 March, along with a headline slot at the sold-out CMC Rocks QLD 2019 event, Australia’s premiere country music festival.

Over the past six years, Florida Georgia Line have taken the world by storm, exploding into the mainstream with collaborations with Bebe Rexha on global chart-topper ‘Meant To Be’, featuring on Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso’s ‘Let Me Go’, plus The Chainsmokers on ‘Last Day Alive’, The Backstreet Boys with ‘God, Your Mama, And Me’, Ziggy Marley, Tim McGraw, Nelly, and countless others.

Their genre-defying sound is top-shelf, making for an explosive live experience. True global entertainers, the multi-platinum duo have surpassed 31 million tracks and more than 4.3 million albums sold, played to jam-packed rooms across North America, and appeared live on US television programs The Late Late Show with James Cordern, The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and more!

With a forthcoming album, Can’t Say I Ain’t Country, just announced for release on 15 February 2019, Florida Georgia Line will have some brand new hits to unleash on Australian audiences in March!

In Cairns, US hit-maker Morgan Wallen will join FGL for the ride, while country star Thomas Rhett will round out the lineup in Sydney and Melbourne. With a solid bill of country powerhouses, these shows promise to be a hit for music-lovers of all ages.

ABC TV STAR SAMMY J TAKES HIS MAJOR PARTY ON THE ROAD

Sammy JAustralia, are you ready to party? Because Sammy J is bringing all his characters, favourite songs and new sketches to the stage next year in one massive variety show.

The comedian, author and self-proclaimed nerd has been entertaining crowds around the globe for years, but TV audiences will know him best from his award-nominated weekly satirical spot on the ABC. His hit sketches have included The Government Coach, National Yoga, and the breakout satire of the 2016 federal election, Playground Politics.

But ultimately, Sammy is most at home on stage. He’s a veteran of 15-years touring from Edinburgh to Montreal, both solo and in his award-winning comedy duo ‘Sammy J & Randy’. Together they won the biggest live comedy award in Australia, The Barry, at the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and later turned that show into the award-winning sitcom, Sammy J & Randy in Rickets Lane, which played internationally on Netflix.

This time round, he’s left Randy at home, and is excited to bring his comedy to a brand-new audience from his burgeoning TV following. For Sammy J, he modestly hopes audiences come to the show ready for the best night of their lives. “It will be the sort of night that is going to make every other night until their death a disappointment in comparison,” he promises. “There’ll be stand-up, songs, sketches and characters from my weekly ABC TV spots. You won’t need to know anything about politics to enjoy it. But if you happen to know the whole constitution by heart, there’ll be plenty for you as well.”

This is Sammy’s first solo tour since 2017’s award-winning Hero Complex, an autobiographical story about a gardener, a schoolboy and a mutual love of the comic book character, The Phantom. That show broke the shackles of the ‘musical comedian’ moniker and Major Party will further show his comedy chops. “I feel like I’ve been chasing different audiences my entire career, and this show is the chance to bring them all together,” he says. “So, whether you’re five-years-old, 15, or 65, this is one party I hope you don’t miss. Actually, maybe not the five-year-olds, get a babysitter for those ones …”

While the youngsters in the audiences may need to stay at home, it was actually Sammy J’s own children that helped bring to life his Playground Politics show in the first place. “ABC asked me to do daily updates during the last election, and wanted to know if I had any ideas,” he says. “I said ‘sure’…. I was lying. So, I asked for 24-hours. During that 24-hours, like most days, I watched Play School with my kids. Then I had the idea of blatantly plagiarizing it, and the rest is short satirical format history.”

When he is not delving deep into the minefield of political drama, Sammy J has been scoring himself ARIA Awards – he has three – and in 2018 released his debut novel, The Long Class Goodnight. As part of his weekly ABC TV shows, he snuck into Malcolm Turnbull’s final press conference, just to eat a chocolate bar, and it’s this attitude to fun, irreverence and smart silliness he will bring to Sammy J’s Major Party.

It’s a show that promises to have it all, harking back to the old school variety shows we love. Sammy J will have you singing along to Playground Politics , getting inspired by Government Coach, and flexing your core beliefs with some National Yoga (audience participation warning). It’s a jam-packed night of song, stand-up and shenanigans, brought to you by the first person in history to have licked every Australian State and Federal Parliamentary building.

Phone: 02 6766 2028
Online: www.tamworthtownhall.com.au

Limit 4 tickets per person.

An established charity, Rural Aid was formed to provide assistance for the relief of poverty, illness, distress or disadvantage of individuals and families conducting primary production businesses that have been adversely affected by natural disasters. With record dry conditions, financial hardship brought on by the drought means money is needed for essential items.

Keith Urban said, “A no frills, no production, free form set list and all to help people who could really use it. It’s gonna be a blast playing the old Tamworth Town Hall!”

‘Way Too Long’ is the recently released new single from Urban’s chart-topping, Gold-certified album ‘GRAFFITI U’, which just this past week received a GRAMMY nomination for the song “Parallel Line.” He’s consistently topped the charts in Australia and the US over the last decade, amassing more than 22 million in album sales worldwide, with combined sales of 1.4 million albums in Australia.

A five-time ARIA Award winner, Urban also has a total of 14 ARIA Platinum selling singles and albums and recently hosted the 2018 ARIA Awards.

Following ‘A Benefit Show for Rural Aid Drought Relief’ at Tamworth Town Hall, Urban’s “Graffiti U World Tour Australia” will begin with a sold out show at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on January 23, followed by shows in Sydney (Qudos Bank Arena on January 25 and 26), Canberra (GIO Stadium on January 27), Brisbane (Entertainment Centre on January 31, February 2 and 3) and Melbourne (Rod Laver Arena on February 5 and 6).

Out through indie label, Social Family Records, the album is set for release on Friday, 8 March and available for pre-order now. It features ten of Shorrock’s favourite LRB hits, including first single and instant grat track, The Night Owls, penned by long-time friend, Graeham Goble.

SYDNEY IRISH FESTIVAL ANNOUNCEMENT 10 + 11 NOVEMBER – SYDNEY SHOWGROUND

With a little over three weeks to go until the 2018 Sydney Irish Festival opens the gates, organisers have today announced performance times and more around the ground action, as well as confirmation that the Wild Geese Trophy, the first fully sanctioned, full format hurling match played outside Ireland will be broadcast live around the world on FOX SPORTS.

The Wild Geese Trophy between 2018 National Hurling League victors Kilkenny and 2017 All Ireland champions and archrivals, Galway, will take place on the final day of the 2018 Sydney Irish Festival over 10 and 11 November 2018 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.

Described as “the Riverdance of sport” and a “warrior game with ancient links to Irish history”, hurling has been played for more than 3,000 years and is one of Ireland’s native Gaelic games. Widely considered to be the fastest game on grass, the game consists of two teams of 15 trying to drive a ball down the field with a stick in order to score against each other. Without a doubt, it is one of the fastest, and most high scoring sports played today and is a colourful mix of skill, stamina and bravery.

The design of the Wild Geese Trophy was inspired by the Catalpa Wild Geese Memorial, situated on the beach at Rockingham, Western Australia, from where six Irish Fenian political prisoners were rescued by the American whaler: The Catalpa, in 1876, and followed their leader John Boyle O’Reilly, to Massachusetts. See here for more background and a hi res picture of the trophy.

Micheál Donoghue, Galway senior hurling team manager, said: “This is a great opportunity to get a really high quality game at what would normally be a quiet time of year. Matches against Kilkenny are invaluable because you know that a Brian Cody coached team will be giving it everything and we will approach it exactly the same way in Sydney. We are looking forward to what promises to be a great occasion.”

The 2018 Sydney Irish Festival is a celebration of all things Irish showcasing traditional Irish dance and music with hurling clinics, market stalls, comedy, face painting, marching bands, buskers, amusement rides, player autograph sessions, and plenty of family friendly activities right across the weekend.

On top of the huge variety of around the ground attractions, the Sydney Irish Festival will include musical performances from some of the Emerald Isle’s musical treasures including Damien Dempsey, Mary Black, Lúnasa and Saint Sister, as well as local Irish outfits Hooper & O’Toole, The Irish Rogues and Irish Hooley on Saturday, 10 November.

Set to enthrall our littlest páistí over at the Davis Amphitheatre Family Stage, Nickelodeon’s PAW Patrol Show featuring rescue pups, Chase and Marshall and those mischievous yellow twins, B1 and B2 – the Bananas in Pyjamas, will each be performing three shows on Saturday, 10 November.

Playing and performance times are below, and a venue map can be downloaded from here.

Day two on Sunday, 11 November commences with a myriad of family friendly activities and more live music, as well as a curtain raiser match between NSW and Victoria commencing at 1.30pm, before the pre-game welcome parade of the teams into the stadium commences at 3.00pm with the teams taking the field for the Wild Geese Trophy tip-off at 3.30pm.

Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) and Paul Sergeant Events (PSE) are thrilled to announce that the full Wild Geese Trophy match on Sunday, 11 November will be shown in Australia on FOX SPORTS More (Foxtel Channel 507*) commencing at 3.30pm AEDT and throughout Asia on FOX Sports Asia and RTE into Ireland (check local guides for details).

FOX SPORTS is committed to bringing a wide variety of sports from around the globe to the homes of Australian sports fans and their support of niche and emerging sports is second to none. Their commitment to the Wild Geese Trophy compliments an already strong suite of emerging sports in November including hockey, gymnastics and lawn bowls. FOX SPORTS is available on Foxtel.

Ahead of the Sydney Irish Festival, the official Business Function will be held at Dockside, Cockle Bay Wharf at midday on Friday, 9 November. Tickets include a three course lunch, beverage package and first class entertainment including RTE Sport’s own Marty Morrissey as MC, a preview of the 2018 Wild Geese Trophy with both team Managers, Brian Cody (Kilkenny) and Micheál Donoghue (Galway), as well as Irish sporting legends Sonia O’Sullivan and Tadhg Kennelly. For tickets and more details, email SIFhospitality@psevents.com.au.

FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE ANNOUNCE DEBUT ARENA DATES FOR MARCH 2019 – WITH SPECIAL GUESTS THOMAS RHETT & MORGAN WALLEN

Multi-platinum superstar duo FLORIDA GEORGIA LINE announce a string of highly anticipated all-ages arena shows for March 2019, which will take them to the Cairns Convention Centre on Friday 15 March, Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Monday 18 March, and Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday 20 March.

No strangers to huge audiences, FGL’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have played to sold-out stadiums across North America, and are slated to headline the sold-out CMC Rocks QLD 2019 event, Australia’s biggest country music festival. After a scorching debut Rocks appearance in 2016, the award-winning duo have taken the world by storm. Their genre-defying sound is top-shelf, making for an explosive live experience. “Just in case you’ve forgotten, Florida Georgia Line is one of the hottest country acts alive”, said MusicRow Magazine.

As the first country act ever to be Diamond certified (10 million copies sold) with their 11x Platinum breakout ‘Cruise’, FGL are a crossover phenomenon, collaborating with Bebe Rexha on this year’s global chart-topper ‘Meant To Be’, featuring on Hailee Steinfeld and Alesso’s ‘Let Me Go’, plus collaborations with The Chainsmokers on ‘Last Day Alive’, The Backstreet Boys with ‘God, Your Mama, And Me’, Ziggy Marley, Tim McGraw, Nelly, and countless others.

Over the past 6-years, the global entertainers have received honours from the AMAs, ACM Awards, CMA Awards, Billboard Music Awards and CMT Music Awards, surpassed 31 million tracks and more than 4.3 million albums sold while launching entrepreneurial endeavours including their Old Camp whiskey, FGL HOUSE restaurant, Tree Vibez Music publishing company, Tribe Kelley and meet + greet.

“a potent brew of fist-pumping backwoods attitude and gutsy crossover ambition” – Rolling Stone

“The duo’s energy was only matched by near-nuclear heat given back to them.”
– Taste of Country

In Sydney and Melbourne, FGL will bring fellow Statesider THOMAS RHETT along for the ride. One of the hottest stars on the global country scene, Rhett is a platinum-selling chart-topper who has eight No.1 US country hits to his name, and an eclectic catalogue that blends the southern swagger of country music with pop hooks, R&B grooves, soulful strut and the anything-goes attitude of rock. Rhett has played alongside FGL many times, notably opening their 2015 tour Anything Goes.

US hit-maker MORGAN WALLEN also joins the dynamic line-up for all shows. One of country music’s most exciting up and comers, Wallen previously toured with FGL on their Dig Your Roots Tour and collaborated with the duo on the Platinum-certified smash ‘Up Down’, an irresistible thumper that topped the US Country charts. His anticipated follow-up ‘Whiskey Glasses’ is currently climbing the Country radio charts and he’s logged more than 330 million combined digital streams to date.

With a line-up of country powerhouses, these shows promise to be a hit for music-lovers of all ages. Experience the very best that country music has to offer, when Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett descend on arenas across the East Coast next March!

IAN MOSS ANNOUNCES NEW REGIONAL SOLO ACOUSTIC SHOWS

After sold out shows across Australia, guitar and rock legend Ian Moss has added more dates to his National Solo Intimate and Acoustic Regional Tour in 2019 including wrapping up the tour with a special show in his home town of Alice Springs.

Respected as one of Australia’s most iconic musicians, Ian Moss delivers an unforgettable sound. While primarily recognised as an axeman of tenacity and sweet melodic sensibility, Ian’s distinctive vocal is the essential signature of his soulful, bluesy muse – as it has been since his first tentative foray into music in the early 1970s.

Showcasing songs from his new self-titled album, Mossy will also perform songs from his incredible solo and Cold Chisel catalogue including Tuckers Daughter, Never Before, Telephone Booth, Such A Beautiful Thing, Bow River and many more.
