Two Of Us – The Songs Of Lennon & McCartney @ Blue Mountains Theatre, SPRINGWOOD NSW
Jul 16 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Revered performers Darren Coggan & Damien Leith come together in the Two Of Us – The Songs Of Lennon & McCartney

Darren Coggan and Damien Leith - Two Of Us

Taking the treasure trove of hits around Australia in 2021

For the first time, two of Australia’s most prolific performers, Darren Coggan and Damien Leith, will come together in a special tour dedicated to the most inspiring songwriters of all time, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Two Of Us – The Songs Of Lennon & McCartney is a magical, intimate and acoustic portrait of the songs that changed the world. The songbook traverses immortal songs from The Beatles treasure trove of pop history, along with the richness and diversity of Lennon and McCartney’s solo careers.

Darren and Damien are well-placed to be paying homage to these iconic musicians, both have a long history of writing and performing, garnering acclaim from audiences throughout Australia. Over the years, their paths have crossed on the road many times, and they always bandied around the idea of one day touring together. It was a love of The Beatles that finally sparked them to seize the opportunity and the concept for Two Of Us ws created.

To keep the songs true to how they would have sounded back when they were first penned, Darren and Damien keep it uncomplicated on stage, just a guitar, a piano and two voices.

“Damien and I were discussing how fabulous it would be to go back in time to 20 Forthlin Road in Liverpool and be a ‘fly on the wall’ witnessing the intuitive genius of John Lennon and Paul McCartney as they threw ideas back and forth writing their treasure trove of hits,” says Darren. “Imagine hearing those songs as they were first written? As a songwriter myself, I really enjoy the feeling of performing songs in their original form, there is something very honest and emotionally raw that seems to allow the songs to breathe. A great song will always be able to stand up on its own, just on a guitar, or a piano, and as we all know, the songbook of Lennon and McCartney is filled with such gems. It’s good to go back to the well and hear a song as it was born, without distraction of other production elements and sometimes they can take the listener on a whole new journey.”

For Damien, there has been something about The Beatles that has consistently inspired him throughout his career. He is finding from the small number of launch shows of Two Of Us that they have performed so far, that this feeling seems to be something that resonates with audiences too. “So many occasions in my life have a Beatles song associated in my memory,” Damien says. “Their melodies, their words, their song structures – it is absolute genius. The show so far has had an unbelievable response, we’re blown away by it. Darren and I both like to have a chat on stage, so not only are audiences hearing their favourite Beatles songs, but the show has a very personable feeing to it.”

The two-hour show is back-to-back hits – songs like Hey Jude, All You Need Is Love, Help, Imagine, Mull Of Kintyre, Eleanor Rigby, Let It Be, Jealous Guy, Beautiful Boy and Blackbird are just the tip of the iceberg. Darren says these songs are still as relevant to music fans today as when they were first penned. “The evolution of the Lennon and McCartney songbook, from their earliest compositions together, to their hits as solo artists, remain so durable because they broke their barriers between high and low art, and between musical genres,” he says. “Set against the backdrop of popular culture, the stories and the messages in these songs are timeless – their messages of peace and love are still so relevant in our world today, perhaps even more so. These songs were all written before I was born, but yet they still sound so fresh and infectious, they have become part of the fabric of our existence and the foundation of popular music as we know it today. The songs of Lennon and McCartney will out live us all.”

Damien Leith became a household name when he won Australian Idol in 2006. Since then he has made an indelible imprint on the Australian music scene as a prolific singer-songwriter, producer, author, playwright and TV personality. With multi-platinum selling albums under his belt and acclaimed sold-out tours paying homage to greats like Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley, Damien is one of the country’s most beloved performers. He is currently filming his first full-length feature film Just Ruby, and recently won an ACRA (Australian Commercial Radio Award) for the breakfast radio show he co-hosts.

Darren Coggan is one of Australia’s most exciting and diverse artists – a masterful storyteller who has carved an impressive career in the Australian country music industry with a swag of Golden Guitars under his belt. He kicked off his career winning the coveted Toyota Star Maker in 1996 and hasn’t looked back. Darren is equally at home in musicals and on screen, currently presenting the lifestyle TV program Sydney Weekender. He has received critical acclaim for his portrait of Cat Stevens which has seen him perform sold-out shows everywhere, including Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, Glasgow Concert Hall and Liverpool Philharmonic.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown – It’s A Musical Comedy

Select run of show dates for 2021 only

Written and directed by Brian Mannix

It has been a decade since Uncanny X-Men frontman Brian Mannix took his light-hearted take on the legendary television program Countdown out on the road. Now, for a select run of dates, audiences are in for a treat as Brian and friends bring I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown – It’s A Musical Comedy to metropolitan centres from July.

If there was ever a show remembered with such reverence, it is Countdown. The show is ingrained in Australian music history, and the antics of the bands performing have created a folklore of their own. Recalling memories of his own time on the show with his band, Brian was hit with an epiphany of sorts – the opportunity to recreate Countdown for the live stage, bringing in all the extremes and hilarity that often ensued, and of course, wrapping it around a killer soundtrack. The result was I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown which has sold-out every season the show has toured, since the first run in 1998 to the last rendition in 2011.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown doesn’t just give audiences a musical experience, showcasing music from the likes of Skyhooks, Hush, Suzi Quatro, The Knack, Blondie, Uncanny X-Men, Mondo Rock and ACDC, to name a few, but it also gives an insight into what was going on backstage during the filming of the show. Theatre-goers are given a rare peek into the ups, downs, and everything in between – which is ample fodder for comedy – of getting bands on stage, and on-air.

“From the fashion, the acts and Molly, there was always going to be great opportunity for humour, and the songs were the soundtrack to our lives from 1974 to 1987,” says Brian. “That was what inspired me about the project, but the further I got into it, I realised it was much more than that. Countdown was a significant part of Australia’s culture, and history. It generated the most successful period in Australian music history. I think this show is a visual feast that takes people back to those times. It’s funny, it’s nostalgic, and it’s not only the soundtrack to a part of our lives, but the sounds of a brief period of Australian history.”

Much like the original television show it is based on, Brian says the musical has grown over the years. “The original show was informative, somewhat innovative and somewhat hilarious, especially when one views it in hindsight,” says Brian. “The show was constantly evolving, and the behind-the-scenes stuff has increased in latter productions. This is in part because the cast are so funny, I try to give them more to do besides singing. It’s not just a balance of what Countdown was, but a balance of what works best in theatre. I think we have it about right, but we will no doubt keep adding and subtracting stuff. That’s part of the fun and keeps the show fresh.”

Despite writing and directing the musical, Brian doesn’t play himself when the Uncanny X-Men perform, Instead, acclaimed theatrical performer Richard Macionis reprises his role as Brian again. Richard has only fond memories of touring with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown. “It’s such a fun show,” he says. “The music – the madness of Countdown! But mostly, it’s seeing the faces and hearing the joy of the people in the room, as song after song, takes them back to special memories… their first disco, their first pash… Sunday evening sitting in front of the tele with family eating pizza subs, and reliving the popstar crushes they had, with the pop stars who are again on stage in front of them.”

It is this reason that it makes it special for Richard, and the cast who take on the roles of some of the most iconic musicians in history. For Richard, watching Countdown every Sunday was a religion and it set him on a trajectory to become an entertainer. “I was an X-Manic,” he says. “That is, as a teenager, I was in the X-Man fan club and Brian Mannix was my idol. I had posters of Brian on my walls and would listen to the X-Men on my Walkman nightly as I went to sleep, imagining one day of being like Brian Mannix. Skip forward ten years to the first run of the show where I was asked to audition. I was completely starstruck seeing Brick on the audition panel, and then, I got the gig. It was surreal, but most of all, being taught how to play Brian by Brian himself, was mind-blowing for me. Just quietly, I’d been ready to play that part since I was a kid.”

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown is a show that is indiscriminate of demographics – the age range of the audience sweeps from those who would have been avid Countdown viewers, to those who have only heard of the legend of Countdown.   “This show tugs at the rock n soul heartstrings, in a light-hearted, bop down memory lane kind of way,” says Richard. “There are those in the crowd that can recall seeing the magical Countdown moments authentically recreated, lovingly on stage, and then those – slightly younger – who can recall the music as the soundtrack of their youth.”

For Brian, Countdown will always be something special, and he hopes to share that with audiences. “Going on Countdown was a very big deal,” he says. “An appearance on that show could make an act very successful. It was also the only TV station where you could buy beer in the canteen!  So, do yourself a favour and check out I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown.

Adam Thompson | Bohemian Rhapsody @ The Palms at Crown, MELBOURNE VIC

Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson takes his Bohemian Rhapsody concert back out on the road in 2021

Adam Thompson - Bohemian Rhapsody

After postponing a swag of dates due to COVID-19 in 2020, Adam Thompson is gearing up to take his dynamic Bohemian Rhapsody show back out on the road in 2021. When it comes to magnetic front men, there are few that embody the power and passion quite like Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson. He owns the stage, channels the music, and has audiences eating out the palm of his hand. Showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury and Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody the blockbuster movie soundtrack, live in concert, has already seen Adam perform to sold-out houses and standing ovations.

Chocolate Starfish are known for paying homage to great music. They’ve put on a hugely successful run of Classic Album Series concerts, with an ode to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell (2017) and INXS’s KICK (2018), bringing the music to life with their powerhouse performances. Now, the band are stepping aside to let their electric and engaging lead singer – lover of life, singer of great songs – pay tribute to the immeasurable talent of Queen, Freddie Mercury and the acclaimed soundtrack of the smash-hit Golden Globe winning music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, planned for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson announced the show just as the biopic landed in theatres in 2018 and the concert sold-out within minutes. Much like the movie, which is reputed as the highest selling music biopic of all time, the live concert concept left music fans demanding more dates. Due to popular demand, Adam Thompson decided to take the live show out on the road.

Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene and Adam Thompson is revered for his showmanship. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and carved a reputation for doing things their own way. Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an ARIA for Most Popular Album.

The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Adam Thompson is looking forward to exchanging that love and energy of Queen with audiences.

Tickets for the 2021 tour of Bohemian Rhapsody are on sale now.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown – It’s A Musical Comedy

Select run of show dates for 2021 only

Written and directed by Brian Mannix

It has been a decade since Uncanny X-Men frontman Brian Mannix took his light-hearted take on the legendary television program Countdown out on the road. Now, for a select run of dates, audiences are in for a treat as Brian and friends bring I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown – It’s A Musical Comedy to metropolitan centres from July.

If there was ever a show remembered with such reverence, it is Countdown. The show is ingrained in Australian music history, and the antics of the bands performing have created a folklore of their own. Recalling memories of his own time on the show with his band, Brian was hit with an epiphany of sorts – the opportunity to recreate Countdown for the live stage, bringing in all the extremes and hilarity that often ensued, and of course, wrapping it around a killer soundtrack. The result was I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown which has sold-out every season the show has toured, since the first run in 1998 to the last rendition in 2011.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown doesn’t just give audiences a musical experience, showcasing music from the likes of Skyhooks, Hush, Suzi Quatro, The Knack, Blondie, Uncanny X-Men, Mondo Rock and ACDC, to name a few, but it also gives an insight into what was going on backstage during the filming of the show. Theatre-goers are given a rare peek into the ups, downs, and everything in between – which is ample fodder for comedy – of getting bands on stage, and on-air.

“From the fashion, the acts and Molly, there was always going to be great opportunity for humour, and the songs were the soundtrack to our lives from 1974 to 1987,” says Brian. “That was what inspired me about the project, but the further I got into it, I realised it was much more than that. Countdown was a significant part of Australia’s culture, and history. It generated the most successful period in Australian music history. I think this show is a visual feast that takes people back to those times. It’s funny, it’s nostalgic, and it’s not only the soundtrack to a part of our lives, but the sounds of a brief period of Australian history.”

Much like the original television show it is based on, Brian says the musical has grown over the years. “The original show was informative, somewhat innovative and somewhat hilarious, especially when one views it in hindsight,” says Brian. “The show was constantly evolving, and the behind-the-scenes stuff has increased in latter productions. This is in part because the cast are so funny, I try to give them more to do besides singing. It’s not just a balance of what Countdown was, but a balance of what works best in theatre. I think we have it about right, but we will no doubt keep adding and subtracting stuff. That’s part of the fun and keeps the show fresh.”

Despite writing and directing the musical, Brian doesn’t play himself when the Uncanny X-Men perform, Instead, acclaimed theatrical performer Richard Macionis reprises his role as Brian again. Richard has only fond memories of touring with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown. “It’s such a fun show,” he says. “The music – the madness of Countdown! But mostly, it’s seeing the faces and hearing the joy of the people in the room, as song after song, takes them back to special memories… their first disco, their first pash… Sunday evening sitting in front of the tele with family eating pizza subs, and reliving the popstar crushes they had, with the pop stars who are again on stage in front of them.”

It is this reason that it makes it special for Richard, and the cast who take on the roles of some of the most iconic musicians in history. For Richard, watching Countdown every Sunday was a religion and it set him on a trajectory to become an entertainer. “I was an X-Manic,” he says. “That is, as a teenager, I was in the X-Man fan club and Brian Mannix was my idol. I had posters of Brian on my walls and would listen to the X-Men on my Walkman nightly as I went to sleep, imagining one day of being like Brian Mannix. Skip forward ten years to the first run of the show where I was asked to audition. I was completely starstruck seeing Brick on the audition panel, and then, I got the gig. It was surreal, but most of all, being taught how to play Brian by Brian himself, was mind-blowing for me. Just quietly, I’d been ready to play that part since I was a kid.”

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown is a show that is indiscriminate of demographics – the age range of the audience sweeps from those who would have been avid Countdown viewers, to those who have only heard of the legend of Countdown.   “This show tugs at the rock n soul heartstrings, in a light-hearted, bop down memory lane kind of way,” says Richard. “There are those in the crowd that can recall seeing the magical Countdown moments authentically recreated, lovingly on stage, and then those – slightly younger – who can recall the music as the soundtrack of their youth.”

For Brian, Countdown will always be something special, and he hopes to share that with audiences. “Going on Countdown was a very big deal,” he says. “An appearance on that show could make an act very successful. It was also the only TV station where you could buy beer in the canteen!  So, do yourself a favour and check out I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown.

Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson takes his Bohemian Rhapsody concert back out on the road in 2021

Adam Thompson - Bohemian Rhapsody

After postponing a swag of dates due to COVID-19 in 2020, Adam Thompson is gearing up to take his dynamic Bohemian Rhapsody show back out on the road in 2021. When it comes to magnetic front men, there are few that embody the power and passion quite like Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson. He owns the stage, channels the music, and has audiences eating out the palm of his hand. Showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury and Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody the blockbuster movie soundtrack, live in concert, has already seen Adam perform to sold-out houses and standing ovations.

Chocolate Starfish are known for paying homage to great music. They’ve put on a hugely successful run of Classic Album Series concerts, with an ode to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell (2017) and INXS’s KICK (2018), bringing the music to life with their powerhouse performances. Now, the band are stepping aside to let their electric and engaging lead singer – lover of life, singer of great songs – pay tribute to the immeasurable talent of Queen, Freddie Mercury and the acclaimed soundtrack of the smash-hit Golden Globe winning music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, planned for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson announced the show just as the biopic landed in theatres in 2018 and the concert sold-out within minutes. Much like the movie, which is reputed as the highest selling music biopic of all time, the live concert concept left music fans demanding more dates. Due to popular demand, Adam Thompson decided to take the live show out on the road.

Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene and Adam Thompson is revered for his showmanship. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and carved a reputation for doing things their own way. Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an ARIA for Most Popular Album.

The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Adam Thompson is looking forward to exchanging that love and energy of Queen with audiences.

Tickets for the 2021 tour of Bohemian Rhapsody are on sale now.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown – It’s A Musical Comedy

Select run of show dates for 2021 only

Written and directed by Brian Mannix

It has been a decade since Uncanny X-Men frontman Brian Mannix took his light-hearted take on the legendary television program Countdown out on the road. Now, for a select run of dates, audiences are in for a treat as Brian and friends bring I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown – It’s A Musical Comedy to metropolitan centres from July.

If there was ever a show remembered with such reverence, it is Countdown. The show is ingrained in Australian music history, and the antics of the bands performing have created a folklore of their own. Recalling memories of his own time on the show with his band, Brian was hit with an epiphany of sorts – the opportunity to recreate Countdown for the live stage, bringing in all the extremes and hilarity that often ensued, and of course, wrapping it around a killer soundtrack. The result was I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown which has sold-out every season the show has toured, since the first run in 1998 to the last rendition in 2011.

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown doesn’t just give audiences a musical experience, showcasing music from the likes of Skyhooks, Hush, Suzi Quatro, The Knack, Blondie, Uncanny X-Men, Mondo Rock and ACDC, to name a few, but it also gives an insight into what was going on backstage during the filming of the show. Theatre-goers are given a rare peek into the ups, downs, and everything in between – which is ample fodder for comedy – of getting bands on stage, and on-air.

“From the fashion, the acts and Molly, there was always going to be great opportunity for humour, and the songs were the soundtrack to our lives from 1974 to 1987,” says Brian. “That was what inspired me about the project, but the further I got into it, I realised it was much more than that. Countdown was a significant part of Australia’s culture, and history. It generated the most successful period in Australian music history. I think this show is a visual feast that takes people back to those times. It’s funny, it’s nostalgic, and it’s not only the soundtrack to a part of our lives, but the sounds of a brief period of Australian history.”

Much like the original television show it is based on, Brian says the musical has grown over the years. “The original show was informative, somewhat innovative and somewhat hilarious, especially when one views it in hindsight,” says Brian. “The show was constantly evolving, and the behind-the-scenes stuff has increased in latter productions. This is in part because the cast are so funny, I try to give them more to do besides singing. It’s not just a balance of what Countdown was, but a balance of what works best in theatre. I think we have it about right, but we will no doubt keep adding and subtracting stuff. That’s part of the fun and keeps the show fresh.”

Despite writing and directing the musical, Brian doesn’t play himself when the Uncanny X-Men perform, Instead, acclaimed theatrical performer Richard Macionis reprises his role as Brian again. Richard has only fond memories of touring with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown. “It’s such a fun show,” he says. “The music – the madness of Countdown! But mostly, it’s seeing the faces and hearing the joy of the people in the room, as song after song, takes them back to special memories… their first disco, their first pash… Sunday evening sitting in front of the tele with family eating pizza subs, and reliving the popstar crushes they had, with the pop stars who are again on stage in front of them.”

It is this reason that it makes it special for Richard, and the cast who take on the roles of some of the most iconic musicians in history. For Richard, watching Countdown every Sunday was a religion and it set him on a trajectory to become an entertainer. “I was an X-Manic,” he says. “That is, as a teenager, I was in the X-Man fan club and Brian Mannix was my idol. I had posters of Brian on my walls and would listen to the X-Men on my Walkman nightly as I went to sleep, imagining one day of being like Brian Mannix. Skip forward ten years to the first run of the show where I was asked to audition. I was completely starstruck seeing Brick on the audition panel, and then, I got the gig. It was surreal, but most of all, being taught how to play Brian by Brian himself, was mind-blowing for me. Just quietly, I’d been ready to play that part since I was a kid.”

I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown is a show that is indiscriminate of demographics – the age range of the audience sweeps from those who would have been avid Countdown viewers, to those who have only heard of the legend of Countdown.   “This show tugs at the rock n soul heartstrings, in a light-hearted, bop down memory lane kind of way,” says Richard. “There are those in the crowd that can recall seeing the magical Countdown moments authentically recreated, lovingly on stage, and then those – slightly younger – who can recall the music as the soundtrack of their youth.”

For Brian, Countdown will always be something special, and he hopes to share that with audiences. “Going on Countdown was a very big deal,” he says. “An appearance on that show could make an act very successful. It was also the only TV station where you could buy beer in the canteen!  So, do yourself a favour and check out I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown.

Tickets for the 2021 run of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Countdown go on sale to the general public from 11am AEDT on Friday 5th March 2021.

Two Of Us – The Songs Of Lennon & McCartney @ The Capital, BENDIGO VIC
Sep 3 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Revered performers Darren Coggan & Damien Leith come together in the Two Of Us – The Songs Of Lennon & McCartney

Darren Coggan and Damien Leith - Two Of Us

Taking the treasure trove of hits around Australia in 2021

For the first time, two of Australia’s most prolific performers, Darren Coggan and Damien Leith, will come together in a special tour dedicated to the most inspiring songwriters of all time, John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Two Of Us – The Songs Of Lennon & McCartney is a magical, intimate and acoustic portrait of the songs that changed the world. The songbook traverses immortal songs from The Beatles treasure trove of pop history, along with the richness and diversity of Lennon and McCartney’s solo careers.

Darren and Damien are well-placed to be paying homage to these iconic musicians, both have a long history of writing and performing, garnering acclaim from audiences throughout Australia. Over the years, their paths have crossed on the road many times, and they always bandied around the idea of one day touring together. It was a love of The Beatles that finally sparked them to seize the opportunity and the concept for Two Of Us ws created.

To keep the songs true to how they would have sounded back when they were first penned, Darren and Damien keep it uncomplicated on stage, just a guitar, a piano and two voices.

“Damien and I were discussing how fabulous it would be to go back in time to 20 Forthlin Road in Liverpool and be a ‘fly on the wall’ witnessing the intuitive genius of John Lennon and Paul McCartney as they threw ideas back and forth writing their treasure trove of hits,” says Darren. “Imagine hearing those songs as they were first written? As a songwriter myself, I really enjoy the feeling of performing songs in their original form, there is something very honest and emotionally raw that seems to allow the songs to breathe. A great song will always be able to stand up on its own, just on a guitar, or a piano, and as we all know, the songbook of Lennon and McCartney is filled with such gems. It’s good to go back to the well and hear a song as it was born, without distraction of other production elements and sometimes they can take the listener on a whole new journey.”

For Damien, there has been something about The Beatles that has consistently inspired him throughout his career. He is finding from the small number of launch shows of Two Of Us that they have performed so far, that this feeling seems to be something that resonates with audiences too. “So many occasions in my life have a Beatles song associated in my memory,” Damien says. “Their melodies, their words, their song structures – it is absolute genius. The show so far has had an unbelievable response, we’re blown away by it. Darren and I both like to have a chat on stage, so not only are audiences hearing their favourite Beatles songs, but the show has a very personable feeing to it.”

The two-hour show is back-to-back hits – songs like Hey Jude, All You Need Is Love, Help, Imagine, Mull Of Kintyre, Eleanor Rigby, Let It Be, Jealous Guy, Beautiful Boy and Blackbird are just the tip of the iceberg. Darren says these songs are still as relevant to music fans today as when they were first penned. “The evolution of the Lennon and McCartney songbook, from their earliest compositions together, to their hits as solo artists, remain so durable because they broke their barriers between high and low art, and between musical genres,” he says. “Set against the backdrop of popular culture, the stories and the messages in these songs are timeless – their messages of peace and love are still so relevant in our world today, perhaps even more so. These songs were all written before I was born, but yet they still sound so fresh and infectious, they have become part of the fabric of our existence and the foundation of popular music as we know it today. The songs of Lennon and McCartney will out live us all.”

Damien Leith became a household name when he won Australian Idol in 2006. Since then he has made an indelible imprint on the Australian music scene as a prolific singer-songwriter, producer, author, playwright and TV personality. With multi-platinum selling albums under his belt and acclaimed sold-out tours paying homage to greats like Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley, Damien is one of the country’s most beloved performers. He is currently filming his first full-length feature film Just Ruby, and recently won an ACRA (Australian Commercial Radio Award) for the breakfast radio show he co-hosts.

Darren Coggan is one of Australia’s most exciting and diverse artists – a masterful storyteller who has carved an impressive career in the Australian country music industry with a swag of Golden Guitars under his belt. He kicked off his career winning the coveted Toyota Star Maker in 1996 and hasn’t looked back. Darren is equally at home in musicals and on screen, currently presenting the lifestyle TV program Sydney Weekender. He has received critical acclaim for his portrait of Cat Stevens which has seen him perform sold-out shows everywhere, including Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, Glasgow Concert Hall and Liverpool Philharmonic.

Adam Thompson | Bohemian Rhapsody @ Albury Entertainment Centre, ALBURY NSW
Sep 3 @ 7:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson takes his Bohemian Rhapsody concert back out on the road in 2021

Adam Thompson - Bohemian Rhapsody

After postponing a swag of dates due to COVID-19 in 2020, Adam Thompson is gearing up to take his dynamic Bohemian Rhapsody show back out on the road in 2021. When it comes to magnetic front men, there are few that embody the power and passion quite like Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson. He owns the stage, channels the music, and has audiences eating out the palm of his hand. Showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury and Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody the blockbuster movie soundtrack, live in concert, has already seen Adam perform to sold-out houses and standing ovations.

Chocolate Starfish are known for paying homage to great music. They’ve put on a hugely successful run of Classic Album Series concerts, with an ode to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell (2017) and INXS’s KICK (2018), bringing the music to life with their powerhouse performances. Now, the band are stepping aside to let their electric and engaging lead singer – lover of life, singer of great songs – pay tribute to the immeasurable talent of Queen, Freddie Mercury and the acclaimed soundtrack of the smash-hit Golden Globe winning music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, planned for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson announced the show just as the biopic landed in theatres in 2018 and the concert sold-out within minutes. Much like the movie, which is reputed as the highest selling music biopic of all time, the live concert concept left music fans demanding more dates. Due to popular demand, Adam Thompson decided to take the live show out on the road.

Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene and Adam Thompson is revered for his showmanship. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and carved a reputation for doing things their own way. Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an ARIA for Most Popular Album.

The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Adam Thompson is looking forward to exchanging that love and energy of Queen with audiences.

Tickets for the 2021 tour of Bohemian Rhapsody are on sale now.

Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson takes his Bohemian Rhapsody concert back out on the road in 2021

Adam Thompson - Bohemian Rhapsody

After postponing a swag of dates due to COVID-19 in 2020, Adam Thompson is gearing up to take his dynamic Bohemian Rhapsody show back out on the road in 2021. When it comes to magnetic front men, there are few that embody the power and passion quite like Chocolate Starfish’s Adam Thompson. He owns the stage, channels the music, and has audiences eating out the palm of his hand. Showcasing the music of his hero Freddie Mercury and Queen in Bohemian Rhapsody the blockbuster movie soundtrack, live in concert, has already seen Adam perform to sold-out houses and standing ovations.

Chocolate Starfish are known for paying homage to great music. They’ve put on a hugely successful run of Classic Album Series concerts, with an ode to Meat Loaf’s Bat Out Of Hell (2017) and INXS’s KICK (2018), bringing the music to life with their powerhouse performances. Now, the band are stepping aside to let their electric and engaging lead singer – lover of life, singer of great songs – pay tribute to the immeasurable talent of Queen, Freddie Mercury and the acclaimed soundtrack of the smash-hit Golden Globe winning music biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

The Bohemian Rhapsody live in concert was originally just a one-off event, planned for April 2019 in Melbourne. Adam Thompson announced the show just as the biopic landed in theatres in 2018 and the concert sold-out within minutes. Much like the movie, which is reputed as the highest selling music biopic of all time, the live concert concept left music fans demanding more dates. Due to popular demand, Adam Thompson decided to take the live show out on the road.

Chocolate Starfish are widely reputed as one of the best live bands on the scene and Adam Thompson is revered for his showmanship. The band arrived smack bang in the middle of the grunge scene of the 1990s and carved a reputation for doing things their own way. Chocolate Starfish had six top 40 singles and two top 10 albums on the Australian charts, gold and platinum record sales and an ARIA for Most Popular Album.

The Bohemian Rhapsody concert will feature hit after hit from Queen’s back catalogue. With tracks such as Somebody to Love, Killer Queen, Fat Bottomed Girls, We Will Rock You, Another One Bites The Dust, I Want To Break Free and Under Pressure to name a few, it will be a spectacular evening from start to finish. Adam Thompson is looking forward to exchanging that love and energy of Queen with audiences.

Tickets for the 2021 tour of Bohemian Rhapsody are on sale now.
