SAY HELLO TO SOMEONE LIKE YOU. With 2019 marking 11 years since the sensational debut album ‘19’ was released, Katie Markham brings an incredible performance to theatres across Australia, recreating the magic that the legendary Adele started more than a decade ago.

This immaculate concert production recreates the magic of Adele’s music from her three hit albums, ‘19’, ‘21’ and ‘25’, reminding audiences why they first fell in love with her beautiful music ten years ago. Katie says: “There is a real beauty to Adele’s music. I think that’s why it appeals to so many people, she lays raw emotion out for all the world to see.” Featuring the smash hits ‘Chasing Pavements’, ‘Make You Feel my Love’, ‘Set Fire to the Rain’, ‘Someone Like You’, ‘Rolling in the Deep’, ‘Hello’ and the multi-million seller ‘Skyfall’, as wellas featuring a selection of songs by some of the legends that inspired Adele, Someone Like You is the quintessential show for any fan of Adele.

The Stranglers

^^

When: Saturday 8th February
Where: Enmore Theatre

Hailed for their highly original sound, combining a brilliant melodic touch with a genuine dark aggression and effortless cool, The Stranglers are now recognised as one of the most credible and influential bands to have emerged from the punk era. First forming in 1974, the band's no bullshit attitude saw them blaze an experimental trail, from Art Rock to Goth to New Wave Pop, inspiring a wave of prog rock guitar players and confrontational vocalists to find their roots in The Stranglers’ unabashed confidence. Their longevity and impact solidified with hits like Golden Brown, Always the Sun, No More Heroes, Strange Little Girl and Peaches - all establishing the legend of The Stranglers. Australian fans are in for a treat when punk rock rabble-rousers The Stranglers return February 2020 to deliver a set for the ages, drawn from their eloquent and extensive catalogue spanning over 40 years.

Stiff Little Fingers

^^

When: Friday 21st February
Where: Metro Theatre

With Sold Out shows on their last Australian & New Zealand Tour, SLF return in February to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of their seminal debut album - Inflammable Material! "They still dish out those timeless classics with a fire and brimstone that makes "Alternative Ulster", "Barbed Wire Love" and "Suspect Device" send a surge of adrenaline around the room." - Louder Than War. On Feb 2nd 1979, Stiff Little Fingers unleashed their groundbreaking debut album upon a confused musical world barely ready for the incendiary onslaught of passion and politics that positioned SLF right at the forefront of the punk movement. "Stiff Little Fingers are unmissable!" - The Rockpit. Formed in Belfast, Northern Ireland, SLF wrote about their own lives growing up at the height of The Troubles. Preceded by the single "Suspect Device" which John Peel played every night, "Inflammable Material" burst into the UK Top 20 – the first ever debut album to do so on an independent label. "We don’t play a lot of love songs" - Jake Burns. This was an album of anger and frustration, full of lyrics melding the personal and political, music that combines the punk energy with infectious hooks, and a delivery that rings of honesty and commitment. "The lads banged out classics track after track…an arsenal of tracks from over four decades bombarded the Belfast crowd who were in fine voice and reciprocated in kind." Rock n Load. A Stiff Little Fingers live show continues to be a special event of energy and power and the band are more in demand than ever. Bad Religion and Rancid have both credited SLF as a major influence. As well as Inflammable Material classics "Suspect Device", "Johnny Was", "Alternative Ulster", "Wasted Life", "Barbed Wire Love" and "State Of Emergency", fans can anticipate anthemic favourites such as "Gotta Gettaway", "Tin Soldiers", "At The Edge" and "Nobodys Hero".

Stereolab

^^

When: Sunday 8th March
Where: Factory Theatre

With Special Guests: Underground Lovers

Art-pop pioneers Stereolab return to Australia this March. Across their original two-decade run, the French-English combo compiled an astonishing collection of retro-futuristic music, experimenting at the intersection of krautrock, lounge music, French yé-yé pop, and vintage rock ‘n’ roll - like Air if they rocked or Yo La Tengo if they built their music for hipster Parisian discotheque. "Stereolab sound fantastic, locking into grooves that feel both insistent and lissom.” - The Guardian June 2019. "Their hour-and-a-half long set was an expansion trip in its entirety. The band was tight and showcased some serious instrumental talent. Their set ranged from french disco to heavy ’60s inspired psych sounds and the crowd was loving it.” - Mxdwn Desert Daze review. Special guests Underground Lovers join Stereolab in Sydney. Don’t miss the return of Stereolab live in Australia this March.

Steve Hackett: Genesis Revisited Tour 2020

^^

When: Saturday 30th May
Where: Enmore Theatre

Steve Hackett, as the powerhouse guitarist for one of the most important progressive rock bands ever, has been a guiding influence for musicians and guitarists for over 40 years. Following the one/two punch of “Nursery Cryme” & “Foxtrot”, both driven by the muscular guitars of new member Steve Hackett, Genesis were ready to launch what would become their finest album, “Selling England By The Pound”. Easing back on the throttle marginally, and immersing themselves in English whimsy and eccentricity, Genesis delivered just under an hour of delicate prose, wondrous melodies and, of course, the soaring leadlines of Steve Hackett. Finally, now, 47 years after the album’s release, Steve Hackett will be performing “Selling England By The Pound” in full in a series of Australian and New Zealand concerts. “I think (Genesis) really nailed the best of what that band as an entity could have done with that album.” Neil Peart (Rush). "… a complexity of tone that's pretty rare in any kind of art." Robert Christgau. “the definitive Genesis album” Fish (formerly of Marillion). In addition, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of its release, Steve will be performing his critically acclaimed solo album “Spectral Mornings”. “Spectral Mornings is a superb disc from one of the genre's all-time greatest guitarists. Five stars!” Prog archives. And if that’s not enough, Steve will perform selections from his stunning new album “At The Edge Of Light”, and may even be munificent enough to throw in another couple of Genesis tunes. “I’m excited to bring my Genesis Revisited show back to Australia and New Zealand. It was fantastic to play there last time and to visit those amazing countries. This time will be a special show, including the whole of Genesis album Selling England by the Pound, celebrating my solo album Spectral Mornings 40th anniversary, plus more! I can’t wait!” Steve Hackett
