Spicks and Specks tour - Adelaide

Spicks and Specks tour - Adelaide

The ABC's hugely popular music quiz show 'Spicks and Specks' has unfortunately called it a day and will take its charismatic hosts and hilarious behaviour across the country this month for a farewell tour.
Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Corner Port Road and Adam Street, Hindmarsh
Date: Friday, December 16, 2011 to Saturday, December 17, 2011
2011 is the year that will see the end of a television institution - a music quiz show that attracts an average weekly audience of 1.35 million viewers and has been among ABC1's top ten programs, based on a series of averages, each year from 2006-2010.

Hosted by Adam Hills and starring Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough, Spicks and Specks bought the whole family back around the TV to play and laugh along with a show that never looked down on its audience. After seven years, 277 episodes and more than 150 guests, the cast decided they wanted the show to go out on a high and recorded a special finale episode that will go to air on November 23, bringing one of Australia's iconic television institutions to an end.

Now, in homage to Whispering Jack himself, they are heading out on the road to say goodbye for the first time (and actually the last time). Spicks and Speck-tacular - The Finale is a brand new production, loosely based on a certain music trivia show, putting Adam, Alan and Myf on stage together with surprises, laughs, memories, live music and appalling choreography.

The tour will visit the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney from Tuesday, November 15 through Friday, November 18; Newcastle Entertainment Centre from Thursday, November 24 through Friday, November 25; Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from Monday, November 28 through Wednesday, November 30; the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday, December 3; WIN Entertainment Centre in Wollongong on Thursday, December 8; National Convention Centre in Canberra from Saturday, December 10 through Sunday, December 11; Adelaide Entertainment Centre from Friday, December 16 through Saturday, December 17; Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from Wednesday, January 4 through Saturday, January 7 and Melbourne Convention Centre from Thursday, January 12 through Friday, January 13.

Who's coming:
Adam Hills, Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough
