Finbar Furey

Bio: Finbar Furey was, for many years, the lead singer and front man for the legendary Irish band The Fureys. 
He was awarded Irish Music Magazine's "Album of the Year" for "Chasing Moonlight" and his latest album “Colours…” is Finbar’s fifth solo album and includes a mix of brand new compositions such as “The Dark Side Of The World” (a duet with UK X-Factor winner Shayne Ward) & “Walking With My Love” (a duet with Mary Black), along with his take on such classics as Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind” and traditional favourites “Dan O’Hara” & “Waltzing Matilda”. He’s an accomplished singer songwriter/banjoist/guitarist/flautist/tin whistler, and is hailed as Irelands “Prince of Pipers” having won every known uilleann pipe title, including three all Ireland Championships. Finbar popularised the pipes worldwide while on tour with his brother Eddie. Many bands followed in their wake. The duo were awarded best Single of the Year by John Peel entirely because of the unique sound the uilleann pipes and whistle made. They received many other accolades because they were the spearhead of Irish contemporary music at that time. They brought a new Irish hipness to a worldwide audience and blended their music into a kind of "world" and popular music. 
It became once again, the music of youth and revolution, a means of dealing with political and social problems which the world faced in that, it was a way for 'common folk', to stand together against real world injustices, such as pollution and abuses of government power.
The illumination they brought to a generation cannot be overstated. Subsequently of course the format was used everywhere from Planxty to River Dance, Braveheart to Hailey Westenra. The name Furey has become part of Irelands musical history. In 1993, with The Fureys at the height of their international popularity and after nearly thirty years as the group's front man, Finbar decided to pursue his solo career. and to present his definitive one-man show. He wanted to explore new pastures as a singer, producer and writer. Since making this decision Finbar's reputation has increased with every performance. 
He has also forged an impressive career in films and appeared in Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs Of New York” and “Paris Sexy” . He recently appeared as the featured guest on RTE’s Gay Byrne Show and has had a documentary made covering his life and career. 
 “Not only does Finbar Furey play pipes with a wildness and passion  ……there’s also a pioneering virtuosity that is unsurpassed"   …………………Irish press
“Quite simply, he is a one-off. An original, acclaimed and revered by audiences and his musical peers”………Irish Independent 
 “Finbar Furey in full flow is one of the most exciting sounds in music…and at his most poetic, one of the most moving… As Dublin as James Joyce, as unpretentious as a pint of Guinness…an evening of pure pleasure”…………………Daily Mail
Finbar has toured extensively, bringing his rare talents to the world-wide stage, treating audiences to evenings of pure Irish magic, great music, good humour, and the charm and wit associated with one of Ireland's most beloved storytellers.
A man of great musical passion and a pioneer for the cause of Irish music, Finbar Furey has carved a special place for himself in the world of music and in the hearts of millions of people.
He returns to tour Australia in March 2013 for The Port Fairy Folk Festival, Brunswick Music Festival, The National Folk Festival and more. He’s like a great red that just keeps getting better!

KISS and Motley Crue tour KISS and Motley Crue's 45 show US summer tour has already gone down as one helluva rock 'n' roll extravaganza, and now, finally, it's Australia's turn. Not only has it been five long years since KISS last toured Australia, but 2013 marks a very special milestone for this great band - their 40th anniversary. In all their bombastic and unstoppable glory, KISS will perform fan favourites from their treasure-trove of hits along with tracks from their 20th studio album Monster. Motley Crue last toured Australia in 2011, but let's face it, we can't get enough of them. They've recently become the first rock band in history to play an epic sold-out Las Vegas residency at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, and are best known for continuing to reinvent not only their live shows (with mind-blowing elements such as Tommy Lee's 360 drum roller coaster) and music, but remain on the cutting edge via social media interaction. With combined album sales of almost 200 million, KISS and Motley Crue are more than just iconic; they remain at the height of their popularity, the dominant powerhouses of rock music tallying 30+ chart-topping hits, countless sold out tours and awards and accolades from around the world. Known for their elaborate and spectacular stage shows, each band plans to give fans the ultimate concert experience with the most impressive lighting and sound production ever and their signature over-the-top pyrotechnics. KISS, Motley Crue and Thin Lizzy will perform at Perth Arena on Thursday, February 28; the Clipsal 500 in Adelaide on Sunday, March 3; Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6; Allphones Arena in Sydney on Saturday, March 9 on Sunday, March 10; Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Tuesday, March 12; and Virgin Australia Stadium in Mackay on Saturday, March 16
