FRIDAY 10 DECEMBER

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondTHE BLACK SORROWS

WITH SPECIAL GUEST MIKE ELRINGTON

Any examination of The Black Sorrows comes down to one person, Joe Camilleri frontman and the brains behind the band. Recently awarded “living legend” status by Rolling Stone, Joe’s career spans an astonishing 50+ years. As a singer, songwriter, saxophonist and producer Joe Camilleri is considered one of the most genuinely talented figures in Australian music still at the top of his game.

Songs such as So Young, Hit And Run, Shape I’m In, Hold On To Me, Harley and Rose, Chained To The Wheel, Never Let Me Go and The Chosen Ones have become radio staples. As leader of two of Australia’s most successful bands, Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons and The Black Sorrows, Joe’s music has become part of Australian music culture.  Joe was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame in 2007. Over the years other greats have admired Camilleri’s songwriting. Elvis Costello and John Denver are just two who have recorded cover versions of Joe’s music.

Camilleri launched The Black Sorrows, a loose band of like-minded musicians, in 1984 following the demise of his seminal band Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons the year before. From humble beginnings playing inner-city cafes around Melbourne and selling albums from the boot of a car, Camilleri transformed The Black Sorrows into one of the most sophisticated ensembles in the country. The independently released album Dear Children, represented a turning point once CBS/Sony stepped in with a world-wide deal. When radio picked up the classic track, Mystified, The Black Sorrows really took flight releasing multi-platinum sellers Hold On To Me, Harley & Rose and The Chosen Ones. The Black Sorrows have won the ARIA for Best Band, played sell-out shows across Europe and sold more than two million albums worldwide.

The Black Sorrows still average 150 shows a year and since 2014 have included Europe on their touring schedule. In keeping with Joe’s penchant for continually moving forward, the newest version of The Black Sorrows is a formidable one – Claude Carranza (guitar/vocals), Mark Gray (bass/vocals), James Black (keyboards/vocals) and Tony Floyd (drums).

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondBOOM CRASH OPERA

One of Australia’s most loved bands, Boom Crash Opera, will perform hits, gems and rarities in both electric and acoustic mode at Yarraville Club.

Lead vocalist Dale Ryder has reunited with the band, gracing the stages of Red Hot Summer and other festivals, thrilling fans with their iconic tracks ‘Onion Skin’, ‘Dancing In the Storm’, ‘Get Out of the House’ and ‘Best Thing’ along with other favourites lifted from their five studio albums.

On this tour, Dale, Peter ‘Maz’ Maslen (Drums/Vocals), Peter Farnan (Guitar/Vocals) and John Favaro (Bass/Vocals) are making plans to delve deep into the annals of their back catalogue and more to work up obscurities and deep album cuts for the fans.

With five original studio albums to choose from, ‘Boom Crash Opera’ (1987), ‘These Here Are Crazy Times’ (1989), ‘Fabulous Beast’ (1993), ‘Born’ (1995) & ‘Gizmo Mantra’ (1997), as well as their acclaimed acoustic album ‘Dancing In the Storm’ (2009) audiences are in for a treat! In Peter Farnan’s words.. “Deep album cuts and long lost faves that want to come out and play again’ or ‘great songs you’ve forgotten, you’ve forgotten’.

35 + years has not wearied this band… Boom Crash Opera have never been in finer form. Fans will attribute to the power, musical chemistry and overall magic that the reinvigorated band are currently exuding.

SATURDAY 19 FEBRUARY

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondGLENN SHORROCK

With a career spanning over 40 years, Glenn Shorrock is one of the elder statesmen of Australian contemporary show business. Late 1974, Glenn returned to Melbourne to help form Little River Band as lead singer. Little River Band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits in the U.S.A. and around the world.  The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit.

In 1995, Glenn fronted Little River Band during their 20th anniversary, three and a half-month tour of the US. His songwriting credits include the international hits Help is on its Way, Emma, Home on Monday (co-writer Beeb Birtles), Long Jumping Jeweler, Shut Down Turn Off, My Own Way Home (co-writer Brian Cadd) and Cool Change.

Glenn continues to work regularly with contemporaries including Doug Parkinson, Wendy Matthews and Brian Cadd. He also regularly performs on behalf of various charities and continues as an ambassador for Variety. As a testament to his enduring talent he has been twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame first in 1991 in his own right and again with The Little River Band in 2004.

On 9 September, 2016 Glenn released his first album in many years, “Rise Again” through SOCIAL FAMILY RECORDS. A collection of songs composed by himself and a few friends. Shortly after, Glenn published his auto biography ‘Now Where Was I?” through New Holland Publishers. A beautifully presented hard back that contains many personal and professional photographs from Glenn’s life. And in March 2019, Glenn (through Social Family Records) released his most recent album ‘Glenn Shorrock Sings Little River Band’ which features ten of LRB’s greatest hits, brilliantly re-imagined by Shorrock and produced and recorded live in studio by Steve Balbi along with an outstanding array of musicians who joined Shorrock to record the album.

“I have been blessed with a long and successful career and I’m doing some of my best work right at the moment” says Glenn.

FRIDAY 18 MARCH – NEW DATE

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondRUSSELL MORRIS

WITH SPECIAL GUEST JOE MATERA

It all started of course over 50 years ago when Russell Morris became the first Australian artist to score consecutive number one singles with his first two releases – ‘The Real Thing’, which is one of the classic psychedelic singles of all time, and ‘Part Three Into Paper Walls’. Both reached #1 on the Australian chart, and what followed has become one of the most remarkable stories in contemporary Australian music.

Fast forward to 2012, when Russell began a trilogy of albums, each with a theme of Australian stories. The first, Sharkmouth, is a collection of tracks about the Australia of the 1920s + 30s. The album reached #6 on the ARIA Chart, and is certified platinum.  Then came Van Diemen’s Land in 2014 which focused on events rather than stories of individuals. From the prison ships that began Australia as a penal settlement, to the union strikes, the 1st and 2nd World Wars, Van Diemen’s Land covers a vast array of Australian history.

And in 2015 Russell released Red Dirt – Red Heart, with amazing musical stories with unique Australian themes which won the coveted Best Blues And Roots Album at the 2016 ARIA Awards.  And through it all, Russell remains one of the hardest working musicians in the country. For some Artists a new album can almost write itself after almost six decades on the road but it takes a rare combination of talent and circumstances to realise that vision as vividly and succinctly as Russell Morris does on his latest album Black And Blue Heart.

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondDIESEL – SOLO BY REQUEST

Following the release of his ARIA #10 album SUNSET SUBURBIA and also a greatest hits package – 30: THE GREATEST HITS, Diesel is stripping back into solo mode and heading around the country to tour DIESEL – TAILORED SET – SOLO BY REQUEST.

A show where the audience plays the main part in forming the set list for the night – they make the song choices creating a TAILORED SET.  How it works…From a list of songs posted prior via Diesel’s website, the audience make their song selections. The set list for the evening then gets formulated based on these choices.

Song choices posted will span from the first album ‘Johnny Diesel & The Injectors’ (1989) through to SUNSET SUBURBIA (2020), along with picks from some of Diesel’s favourite artists – Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix & Otis Redding and Muddy Waters to name just a few…The idea of letting the audience ‘hand pick’ the songs makes for a spontaneous night of select music.  With a career spanning over 3 decades, seventeen albums and a swag of ARIA awards, Diesel has the skills of a tailor to make a bespoke night of song.

SATURDAY 4 JUNE – NEW DATE

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondTHE U2 SHOW- ACHTUNG BABY

PRESENT “ZOO TV: LIVE FROM SYDNEY”

 November 1991. The Berlin Wall comes crashing down. The Cold War is over. Irish rock band U2 release their seminal album ‘Achtung Baby’.

 After spearing their way through the 80’s with albums ‘The Joshua Tree’ and ‘Rattle and Hum’, Bono and co. come back bigger (and more industrial sounding) than ever. Blending hits such as ‘One’ and ‘Mysterious Ways’ with fan favourites such as ‘Love Is Blindness’ alongside the world’s first use of video screens, the 90’s would never be the same. To say that U2 broke ground with ‘Achtung Baby’ (and it’s subsequent ‘ZooTV’) world tour is an understatement.

 To top this all off, one of the last concerts on the ‘ZooTV’ world tour was filmed in Sydney, Australia. This concert, titled ‘ZooTV: Live from Sydney’ was a massive success. And to celebrate this fan favourite, “The U2 Show Achtung Baby” is bringing their one-off ‘ZooTV: Live from Sydney’ show to Yarraville Live.   Just as their loyal fans have come to expect during the life of their 20 years in the business, this show will feature impressive note for note renditions of all the songs from the ‘U2 ZooTV: Live from Sydney’.

Tix:              2 Course Dinner & Show $81.50 + bf, Reserved A Seating – Front $40+bf, Reserved B Seating – Rear $32 + bf, G.A.$25+ bf, Door $30 (if available).

yarraville live: new shows & new dates 2021 and beyondBABBA

Be transported back to 1977 and instantly become immersed into the wonderful musical illusion that is BABBA. From the glitz and glamour of the costumes and dance moves, all served up with a Swedish accent, to the precision and expert delivery of the music, you will be singing along to all the hits and up dancing in no time!

A BABBA show is so much more than simply the songs of ABBA. The show is about memories, songs that in a second take you to another place and remind all of us of people and places and times that have touched our lives. For 2 hours, Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Frida and the incredible legacy they gave the world, can be ours once again.

Not a single hit is missed as audiences become choirs, singing along, and on many occasions taking over the vocal lead, to songs as familiar as their own names. From the gentle ballads with heart-warming melodies and angelic harmonies to some rock and roll excitement as Benny asks Bjorn if he’s ready to rock them, the superb musical finesse of this show is as polished and precise as the day the songs were written.  Book early to avoid disappointment!
