System Of A Down To Do SoundWave Festival Plus Sydney And Melbourne

System Of A Down To Do SoundWave Festival Plus Sydney And Melbourne
by Eva Rinaldi
System Of A Down are coming to Australia to headline SoundWave 2012, and will also be doing shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
If you haven't heard of them until now, don't worry - you will be hearing a lot more about these world calibre rockers.
I think that System Of A Down will help ensure that the 2012 SoundWave Festival will be a success, and that the Sydney and Melbourne shows are doing to rock big time. Expect to hear lots of these guys on most modern music radio stations worth their salt salt. They have have been once down, but these days are on the up in a big way.
Who Said What?...
It was 2001’s ‘Toxicity’ that cemented their reputation. With every track tightly coiled, urgent and “cast in layers upon layers of aural intricacy, Toxicity charters new frontiers, yet it’s still grinding rock at its most deafening.” – L.A Weekly
In 2005, against all odds, the completed Mezmerize/Hypnotize project was unleashed and it quickly became impossible to think of it as anything else than one epic piece of work. SYSTEM OF A DOWN delivered, and in doing so have given us one of the great rock double albums of all time….”rarely are albums this thrillingly original”. Q Mag
As the headliners for the 2012 Soundwave Festival, SYSTEM OF A DOWN will be bringing their frantic, frenetic and brutal live assault to Sydney and Melbourne for two headline sideshows only.

2250 Elvis fans And 14 Elvis's Shake Rattle And Roll Out Of Sydney For "The King Tribute Cruise" This Thursday...And Its Sold Out!

Elvis lives... at least he's brought back to life once again for an Elvis Tribute show promoted by the well known, witty, controversial et al Max Markson of Markson Sparks! fame.

We wonder how Max and team would have scored on an Australian Celebrity Apprentice platform for this solid publicity stunt / event, but alas...

Here's the promotional blurb from Markson Sparks! that you have grown to know and love (or something else)... but its Markson all over...

Australia's "first ever" Elvis Presley tribute cruise leaves the Overseas Passenger Terminal (Circular Quay) Sydney this Thursday with well over 2000 fans on board and 14 Elvis tribute artists to entertain them, plus much more!  

Circular Quay with at least 4 Elvis Presley tribute artists in costume (including 1 female Elvis ) and dozens of Elvis fans heading off on their floating Heartbreak Hotel.

Adelaide's Johnny Welsh sold his business, mortgaged his house, and put everything he had on the line to hire the Royal Caribbean's "Rhapsody of the Seas" cruise ship to stage Australia's first ever "The King Tribute Cruise''.  A very brave move indeed!   

Johnny arranged and organised the very successful  "Blue Suede Cruise" in 2010, a 50's and 60's Rock 'n' Roll themed cruise. That cruise was also was a complete sell out and gave him the idea to organise "The King Tribute Cruise. 

Johnny has flown in two of the worlds best ETA's (Elvis Tribute Artists) from the UK, Pete Storm and Rob Kingsley, and there's even a female ETA plus many others.   

Elvis may have left the building but 14 of them are alive and well on "The King Tribute Cruise" this week!  It's on again in November next year too.
