Cliff Richard and The Shadows 60th Anniversary Tribute Concert is a show that delivers a captivating live concert recreating the unforgettable sound of Cliff Richard and The Shadows.

Ian Moss Regional Tour

IAN Moss delivers an unforgettable sound not only as a telling soloist on guitar but especially with his voice. His distinctive vocal is a signature of his soulful, bluesy music as it has been since the early 1970s.

Born and raised in Alice Springs, Ian started playing guitar in local teenage bands but moved to Adelaide after failing one of his high school years, planning to repeat in the big city. Fate intervened when he answered an advertisement for a guitarist in a shop window in 1973, joining a band that was to become a legend in Australia and that made such an undeniable impact that they are now etched in the Australian music psyche forever.

That band was Cold Chisel.

He will be at the MECC on April 3 from 7.30pm.
