The Traveling Wilburys Sessions
Town Hall Theatre
THE TRAVELING WILBURY’S were a Supergroup.
Any band where Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are the ‘unknowns’ would have to be very special and George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison were/are very special. That’s super and duper.
A band that burnt bright across the heavens and seared their songs into the collective memory for all time. They are adored by all generations of music lovers. Deadset.
Some of Australia’s own superstars have come together to knock out the Wilbury fabulous hits and add a little of each of the maestro’s superb sounds and reverbs that have fuelled the direction of music as we know it.
It doesn’t get much better.
Hit after hit sung and played by the powerhouse that is James Black who has strummed and tinkled with rock royalty in Mondo Rock, The Black Sorrows and The RocKwiz Orkestra.
Angus Burchall, drummed superbly with the superb John Farnham, and Olivia Newton-John.
Lindsay Field has sung with John Farnham, Jimmy Barnes, Glenn Shorrock, Renee Geyer and Brian Cadd.
Need we say more.
Mighty Glyn Mason has played with the mighty Chain, Ariel and Copperwine.
Guitar Sam See, a founding member of Sherbet, has played with the amazing Greg Quill, Goanna and John Farnham. Paul Cartwright has played with David Bridie, Brian Cadd, Glenn Shorrock, Kate Ceberano, Deborah Conway and Wendy Mathews…phew!
James Black, Lindsay Field, Sam See, Glyn Mason, Angus Burchall and Paul Cartwright will create an unforgettable experience featuring sensational vocals, knockout harmonies and gargantuan guitar work in their reimagining of a truly great band.
Don’t miss them.
Life is too short.
