The Best Things on Tour

The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex
Friday, 1 March. 8:00pm.

In the late Eighties, 1927 and Boom Crash Opera owned the airwaves; and in some respect still do today. So naturally this double up was inevitable. From ARIA awards, platinum albums and Top 40 Hits, Boom Crash Opera and 1927 have them all. The ‘Best Things Tour’ will deliver a night to remember.

About Boom Crash Opera:

These here are crazy times. But Boom Crash Opera are one band you can rely upon. The producer of their debut album told them: “The most important thing a group can do is stay together. Keep it together and you can do anything you want.” Boom Crash Opera took those words to heart, proudly becoming one of Australia’s most-loved bands, with 13 Top 50 singles and five Top 50 albums. As founding member Peter Farnan says, “We sounded like our name.” It’s an intoxicating mix of indie pop and stadium rock, with unforgettable hits such as ‘Great Wall’, ‘Hands Up In The Air’, ‘City Flat’, ‘Onion Skin’ ‘Get Out Of The House’, ‘The Best Thing’ and ‘Dancing In The Storm’.  Nearly four decades after the band began, the start of ‘Onion Skin’ remains an irresistible rallying cry: Keep it in! Cut it out! Kick it out!

About 1927:

Known for enduring hits such as ‘That’s When I Think of You’, ‘Compulsory Hero’, ‘To Love Me’, ‘Scars’, ‘Don’t Forget Me’, and of course, ‘If I Could’, 1927 made a devastating entry into the ears of its listeners with quintuple Platinum ‘…Ish’ in 1988, which earned the band a number of ARIA awards as well as a lot of fans along the way. Having followed up ‘…Ish’ with the multi-platinum second album ‘The Otherside’, a self-titled third album, and countless live shows at home and abroad, the last couple of decades have earned 1927 legendary status.
