COMING UP

Kasey Chambers - The Captain | MECC | December 1

Twenty years ago Kasey Chambers released her ground-breaking debut album The Captain. It was a pivotal record that remains the cornerstone of her outstanding career.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Captain, Kasey performs a special concert, sentimentally re-forming her original band, playing songs from the album alongside a "best of her career” set. A performance not to be missed.

Jummy Barnes - Shutting Down Your Town | MECC | September 18

Jimmy Barnes is back with his biggest headlining tour of this century - Shutting Down Your Town. He will play all his classic hits plus highlights from his acclaimed new album My Criminal Record.

Barnesy is the heart and soul of Australian rock'n'roll. Over recent years his best-selling memoirs Working Class Boy and Working Class Man have struck a deep chord across his homeland. Now he finally returns to what he loves most - electrifying audiences with one of the greatest catalogues in the history of Oz rock; from Cold Chisel anthems like Khe Sanh and Flame Trees through Working Class Man and Ain't No Second Prize to his current radio hit Shutting Down Our Town.
