The Beatles – From Mania To Revolution @ The Triffid 02/02/17

Four Liverpudlian teens formed a band back in 1960,  which not only went on to define an era but to become one of the most iconic musical influences of all time. From Mania to Revolution: A Beatles Tribute to George Martin is a show by a group of incredibly talented artists, dedicated to George Martin, (aka the “Fifth” member, who was also the original drummer) of […]

Delta Goodrem @ Brisbane Convention & Entertainment Centre, 11/11/16 (Live Review)

Delta Goodrem @ Brisbane Convention & Entertainment Centre, 11/11/16 (Live Review)

When a 15 year old Delta Goodrem, released her debut single Innocent Eyes, back in 2003, I wonder if it was predictable, that 15 years later, she would not only be still performing to sell out crowds, but that she would have 5 albums, 4 of them peaking at Number 1 on the Charts in Australia, with the fifth peaking at a not too shabby […]

The Beards @ The Triffid 19/06/16 (Live Review)

If there was ever a theme song for male bonding it would have to be a song written and sung by The Beards. A bounty of bold, bodacious and burnished beards joined in solidarity to farewell the ever popular male icons, for their final Brisbane shows this weekend at The Triffid, to a sold out crowd on the Saturday and another huge show for the […]

With Keith Harkin sadly unable to complete the last show of their Australian Tour,  four remaining […]

Madonna @ Brisbane Entertainment Centre 16/03/16 (Live Review)

When I waited 23 years ago on a cool rainy evening to see our idol and Queen of Pop, Madonna play at a packed QEII Stadium at Mt Gravatt (now called ANZ Stadium), I never  dreamed it would take her so long to see her grace our shores again. To say I was a little bit ecstatic to be there, was an understatement! After reading […]

Neil Diamond – Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Boondall –  03/11/15 (Live Review)

Neil Diamond – Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Boondall – 03/11/15 (Live Review)

Walking up to the Brisbane Entertainment Centre Box Office it was no surprise that there was an essentially but not exclusively, older demographic that was bustled outside as I collected my ticket. I guess some of these patrons would have been lucky enough to see the legendary, Neil Diamond that last time he played in Brisbane at Festival Hall in 1976. . . Even before […]
