It gives me great pleasure to announce that THE KILLJOYS TRIO (Anna Burley, Craig Pilkington and Caroline Schwerkolt) will be our very special guests at our annual Melbourne CHRISTMAS SHOWS in December.
The two bands go way back, having shared a manager in the early '90s and a drummer in the mid '90s when BIG DAVE FOLLEY filled in on the MOUTH TO MOUTH tour. In fact BIG DAVE, ANNA and PHIL KAKULAS were GO-BETWEEN GRANT McLENNAN'S backing band on his ’94 world tour and later CRAIG PILKINGTON produced and engineered our 2003 album SHANGRI-LA. So yeah, we have history. Looking forward to Anna joining us on stage to sing a few songs too.
Tickets are selling fast (thank you!) with all tables now booked out for the Caravan show and just a few tables left for the Saturday and Sunday shows – so GET IN QUICK if you want to book one. Plenty of standing room still available at all shows.
This will be the 9th consecutive year we've dusted off the tinsel and fired up the Christmas lights, for what has now become, well, a bit of a tradition. As usual they’ll be a SMORGASBORD of Christmas-related songs, plus CHOICE CUTS from our latest album and the best of our back catalogue.
2017 has been a big year for The Blackeyed Susans, with our latest album CLOSE YOUR EYES AND SEE getting rave reviews from fans and critics alike (thank you again!) and a successful national tour to boot. So, come help us celebrate the birth of little baby Jesus with a song or two this Christmas.
