COBRA STARSHIP’s front man Gabe Saporta once said, “No band can ever make more than three good records.”
He couldn’t have been more wrong. Nor could he have predicted just how much of his owns band’s career would defy that philosophy. COBRA STARSHIP’s 4th studio album ‘Night Shades’ has spawned some of their most acclaimed work to date and “screams 'party' right from blast off”. – Rock Sound
With a string of previous sold out Australian shows in the bag, COBRA STARSHIP returns playing two exclusive Sidwaves in Sydney and Melbourne. “With true showmanship the band blisters through their set list of dance floor anthems leaving, as far as pop punk goes, one hard act to follow.” – Rave Magazine

Shannon Noll announces “A Million Suns” tour Extensive Australian tour showcases new album,

One of Australia’s best-loved musicians, Shannon Noll, returns to the road this February to take his new record ‘A Million Suns’ to fans all over Australia. Taking in thirty+ dates across six States and Territories, the ‘A Million Suns’ tour will showcase Nollsy at full-throttle; ripped, raw and ready to belt out a selection of brand new tunes and old favourites for adoring fans.

Kicking off at the Charles Hotel in Perth on Friday 24th February, the ‘A Millions Suns’ tour will see Shannon traverse the country from West to East in pumping full-band mode, a departure from the recent stripped-back shows that he performed ‘in the raw’ nation-wide.

“Really looking forward to getting back out on the road to play in front of my fans, it’s been too long”, Noll said today. “I’m really happy with the new show, and I think my set is the strongest it’s ever been. Bring on the first gig!”

Released in October last year, Noll’s fourth studio album ‘A Million Suns’ exploded onto the ARIA Album Chart with a Top 10 debut. Featuring the hit single ‘Switch Me On’, co-written with Benji Madden of Good Charlotte and a staple on FM radio across the country, ‘A Million Suns’ is the highly anticipated result of Shannon’s collaboration with Executive Producer Bryon Jones, who is responsible for Noll’s first two records.

Shannon’s brand new single ‘Living In Stereo’ will hit radio just in time for his first February shows. It’s a cheeky upbeat summer tune with a massive lead guitar break from The Divinyls’ Mark McEntee, which pays homage to some of his previous hits and is sure to have playlists ablaze this season!

With a brand new album under his belt, Shannon is ready and raring to share his impressive live show with music lovers across Australia. Don’t miss your chance to see this one-of-a-kind performer in the flesh!
