Quintessential Australian punk rockers The Living End will make their Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ debut in 2017 in their ‘Twangin’ at Twilight’ performance, which will see the band accompanied by a string quartet and special guests, and give fans the opportunity to hear some of the trio’ s smash hits reworked into acoustic numbers as well as a cover or two.
Special guests will include singer-songwriter and guitarist Josh Pyke, who will join The Living End on Friday 4th March, and the legendary Jimmy Barnes will take to the stage on Sunday 5th March – two landmark Australian performers joining the festivities in what is sure to be an unforgettable weekend of music against the stunning backdrop of Sydney Harbour.
Being one of Australia’s leading rock acts, The Living End have come a long way since forming in high school and busking the streets of Melbourne. The three-piece, comprised of Chris Cheney, Scott Owen and Andy Strachan, has had two #1 albums, achieved 4x Platinum sales of their debut album, plus three Platinum and two Gold certified albums. Their latest album Shift (2016) debuted at #4 on the ARIA chart, and saw Rolling Stone declare them “one of the few Australian bands whose commercial and alterna-whatever appeal remains undiminished through the past two decades.” The band was awarded APRA’ s Australian Song of the Year in 2009 for ‘White Noise,’ plus have received 27 ARIA Award nominations and taken out six wins.
You may know her as the front woman of rock ‘n’ roll band, The Furrs, but Gabriella Cohen’s self-produced 10-track debut album, “Full Closure And No Details,” has seen her branch out and cement her status as a successful solo artist in her own right. Mixing eclectic pop with honest lyricism to create an infectious sound her new record is the result of what Cohen describes as the “ceremony” of reflecting on a relationship. Cohen will bring tracks from her new record to the Twilight stage in 2017 for an unforgettable performance.
