COLIN HAY BRINGS THE IMMIGRANTS BACK DOWN UNDER!

Colin Hay, best known as the frontman for Australian hit makers Men at Work, is receiving continued accolades, for his troubadour-style solo performances, spanning the last 30 years, with the release of his 13th, and critically acclaimed album, Fierce Mercy, as well as currently touring the world as a member of Ringo Starr’s All-Starr band. Colin returns to Australia with his Los Angeles based band, including, from Cuba, SanMiguel Perez (guitar/tres/vocals), Yosmel Montejo (bass/vocals) and Jimmy Branly (drums). Rounding out the front line of the band, is Peru’s own Cecilia Noël (percussion/vocals) and Scheila Gonzalez (keyboard/flute/sax/vocals) whose family hails from Guatemala. All these musicians are the real deal and are legends in their own right. Alongside the thoughtful storytelling in his songs, Hay’s shows are peppered with hilarious anecdotes from his, often surreal, experiences in the world of rock music. What a way to start your weekend Canberra …

“Hay is more than a master musician; he is a master storyteller … There’s more to Hay than the Grammy-winning, world-beating rock band of yesteryear. These days, there is no pretention. There is just the music, stripped to its primal form. And the stories. Don't forget the stories”  BrisbaneTimes.com.au

“Musically, Hay gives a bit of all of his career in the setlist and  a lot of who he is personally between the songs … The show is like catching up with an old friend.”  Noise 11
