ABBA is the most exciting and musically accurate tribute to ABBA in the world. In a spellbinding performance of all the hits, BABBA takes you on a musical journey that will have you on your feet uncontrollably. Since 1994 BABBA have performed all over Australia, Asia and New Zealand to sold out audiences and rave reviews. Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Frida have returned (with the help of a cryogenic freezer and some cosmetic surgery) to transport you back to the 70s with a show full of humour, great costumes, Swedish accents and fun-filled dance floor action. With spine tingling harmonies and a band that will rock your socks off, BABBA is simply the best night out in town.

Giddy-Up Nursee!! is a hilarious romp from start to finish.

Judi Walker trained as a nurse and draws on this experience and the ensuing forty years as she weaves her tale. Judi’s warts and all presentation is crammed with her opinions on all things relating to nursing and a little bit more. Her observations on everything from the good old days to bowel movements and all things in between are beautifully crafted with never a dull moment.

Poems from her book Nursee Rhymes: Have You Seen My Uterus? are interwoven throughout her performance as we learn the inspiration behind her verses. Don’t be fooled, this show is not just for nurses. This rich and varied presentation is going to delight anyone who craves a good belly laugh.

Platinum-selling Australian hip hop artist Illy has announced The Two Degrees Regional Tour. This tour is the first time Illy will bring his ARIA #1 album Two Degrees to regional Australia, which includes stops in Port Hedland, Launceston, Toowoomba, Cairns, Warnambool, Newcastle, Mildura and Albury (just to name a few). It follows on from his largest ever capital city tour, featuring sold-out shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane earlier this year.

Illy has a good history of regional touring, hitting the road with Groovin’ The Moo Festival twice, along with a previous regional headline tour in 2014. He’s developed a strong love of regional Australia and is pleased and excited to be getting back out to these towns and performing again after such a long absence.

Illy says he is “Really psyched to get back on the road for such a huge run. It’s been a couple years since last time, and this will be the biggest I’ve ever done. Let get loose.”

His album Two Degrees includes current single Oh My featuring Tonight Alive’s lead singer Jenna McDougall, the triple platinum ARIA Award-nominated and APRA Award-winning single Papercuts with Vera Blue, the double platinum Catch 22, a collaboration with UK powerhouse Anne-Marie and live favourite You Say When featuring Marko Penn. Two Degrees is available now.

Don’t miss Illy as he tours regional Australia extensively for the very first time.

The Whitlams will tour nationally in their classic four-piece configuration to bring their 25th year to a rowdy finale. Starting the anniversary year in May 2017 selling out concert halls in each state capital with 60 piece orchestras, they end it with a jaunt through their favourite pub and small theatre gigs around the country.  They are ditching the conductor and the charts, and are back to the common muscle-memory of 1000 shows and six albums. The Whitlams’ line up of Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Warwick Hornby on bass and Terepai Richmond on drums will be delivering the sort of sprawling, rambunctious set they have become famous for.
