Reunion.jpg

THURSDAY 14th NOVEMBER - THE REUNION: YOUNG STARS OF COUNTRY… 20 YEARS ON 2019 TOUR @ PENRITH PANTHERS

Individually, Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart are four of the most recognisable country music artists in the Australian entertainment world. The Golden Guitars, Gold certified records, chart topping albums and countless number one singles between them barely scratch the surface of their combined achievements.

2019 marks the 20th anniversary of these four talented and highly decorated artists forming a tour called The Young Stars Of Country. The tour’s name was the brainchild of the booking agent they shared at the time. These young and feisty newcomers fought to have their own names splashed across the light-boxes and chalkboards of the venues they played for fear of not being remembered… Adam, Beccy, Darren and Felicity were not to know that this was the beginning of a musical bond and personal friendship that was to last for two decades.

You can expect some very special moments in this show. When four artists come together after 20 years of love and respect for each other, the audience is in for a once in a lifetime treat.

SATURDAY 16th NOVEMBER - YOUTH GROUP @ THE LANSDOWNE, SYDNEY

To celebrate the release of their fifth album ‘Australian Halloween’ on October 11th, Youth Group will reunite for three intimate East Coast shows and will be supported by Knievel and Bree Van Reyk.

After forming in the late 1990s, the four-piece released four critically acclaimed albums and achieved worldwide success with 4x platinum single ‘Forever Young’, an Alphaville cover which was recorded for the soundtrack of the US drama series, The O.C., reached #1 on the ARIA Singles Chart and won the band the 2006 ARIA Award for Breakthrough Single.

Australian Halloween’ was written in an abandoned laundromat in Huddersfield, a post-industrial town in the north of England. Having relocated to the UK with his young family, chief songwriter and singer/guitarist Toby Martin rented the space expecting to write a very English solo record. Instead what came out was a body of work that not only felt distinctly like a Youth Group album, but was largely concerned with Australia and missing home.
