TOUR DATES & TICKETING arrow
Special Guests arrow
One of Australia’s most explosive performers, Jimmy Barnes, will join the Stones at Adelaide Oval on the new date of Saturday 25 October 2014.
As lead vocalist for Cold Chisel and with 16 solo albums to his name – including 13 ARIA Album Chart number ones – Jimmy Barnes has both fronted one of Australia’s most iconic outfits and become one of the most successful solo performers in Aussie history. You’d be hard pressed to meet someone who couldn’t sing along to one of Barnes’ quintessential hits, classics like “Working Class Man”, “I’d Die To Be With You Tonight”, “Flame Trees”, “Good Times”, “Rising Sun”... the list is endless.
Inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2005 for his solo work – Cold Chisel already honoured in 1993 – Barnes’ multi-platinum history includes 1984 debut Bodyswerve, as well as 1985’s seven times platinum For the Working Class Man, 1987’s Freight Train Heart, 1990’s Two Fires, 2005’s Double Happiness and more. He sold almost a million copies of 1990’s excellent The Soul Deep, while his most recent record is 2010’s Rage and Ruin, recorded in Los Angeles with long-time producer Don Gehman (John Mellencamp, REM). Currently writing for a new album, Australia’s undisputed king of rock has no plans to slow down.
Barnes is no stranger to stadium shows – in 2013 he thrilled crowds by tearing up the stage alongside Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at their ‘Wrecking Ball’ shows at Hanging Rock, VIC and joined the band once more this year on the Mt Smart Stadium stage in Auckland, NZ.
Hunters and Collectors
One of Australia’s most iconic outfits, Hunters & Collectors, will join the Stones at Auckland Mt Smart Stadium on the new date of Saturday 22 November 2014.
Visceral, mighty, and responsible for classics such as ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’, ‘Talking to a Stranger’,‘ Holy Grail’, ‘When The River Runs Dry’, ‘Do You See What I See’, ‘Say Goodbye’ and countless others, Hunters & Collectors will bring their powerful, ferocious live show to New Zealand with the Stones this November. Having farewelled thousands of Aussie fans at wineries across the country as recent headliners of the ‘a day on the green’ concert series, last weekend the reformed Hunters & Collectors performed two, final indoor theatre shows, culminating in a sold-out, emotional goodbye at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre.
Love for the reformed Hunters & Collectors culminated last year with the release of 2013 collection Crucible – The Songs of Hunters & Collectors (out now via Liberation). The 30-track LP collected 15 originals and saw the biggest names in Aussie music – Paul Kelly, The Avalanches, Birds Of Tokyo, The Living End and more – cover their favourite songs, joined on the disc by two long-time, international fans: Eddie Vedder & Neil Finn. On Crucible… the friends joined forces to perform arguably the Hunters’ most enduring classic, ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’.
Whether you were too young to have witnessed them live or remember the band’s urgent sound, the extraordinary Hunters & Collectors legacy has never faded. Formed in 1981 in Melbourne and led by frontman/guitarist Mark Seymour, across 10 studio albums (such as 1986’s Human Frailty and 1989’s Ghost Nation) the ‘Hunnas’ became renowned the world over for their electrifying, sweat-soaked sound, built up over year upon year of gigs – almost 2,000 shows, in fact. They disbanded in 1998, later inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in 2005.
British India returned from Berlin earlier this month with album number five written, recorded and ready to be mixed. Lucky ticketholders at The Rolling Stones’ Hanging Rock and Hope Estate shows will be amongst the first to hear the new single from their upcoming fifth full-length release, as well as tracks from 2013’s Controller (out now through Liberation Music) like ‘Summer Forgive Me’ and ‘Blinded’, and selections from their illustrious back catalogue.
The band received their first ever gold record for hit single ‘I Can Make You Love Me’ earlier this year – a long time coming for four Melbourne school friends who have achieved three ARIA Top 10 album debuts, multiple ARIA and J Award nominations, five entries into triple j’s Hottest 100 and the AIR Award for ‘Best New Band’ over the course of their impressive career. British India will be wrapping up the year in style, taking the stage just before The Rolling Stones at Hanging Rock and opening proceedings at the Hope Estate show.
Before even releasing their debut album, Sydney five-piece The Preatures have played mind-blowing sets at Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Splendour In The Grass and Coachella, performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, received a bevy of awards and an ARIA nomination, and have a gold-certified single to their name. This October, they can add supporting The Rolling Stones to this list as they kick off the fun at Hanging Rock and follow British India at Hope Estate.
The past eighteen months have been massive for the band; starting with breakthrough hit ‘Is This How You Feel’ which earned the band first prize in the Vanda and Young Songwriting Competition, ‘Best Rock Song’ in the International Songwriting Competition and the #9 spot in 2013’s triple j Hottest 100. Toe-tapping singles ‘Better Than It Ever Could Be’ and ‘Two Tone Melody’ followed suit, seeing the band pick up both local and international acclaim:
The future is looking even brighter for The Preatures, having confirmed this morning that their highly anticipated debut Blue Planet Eyes will be released on September 26 2014 through Universal Music. Make sure you catch them at The Rolling Stones’ Australian outdoor shows to get a taste of the ‘delicious grooves, hip-hugging basslines and choruses that just won’t quit’.

HANGING ROCK CONCERT CANCELLED
The Rolling Stones have been forced to cancel the next date of their Australian tour after singer Mick Jagger developed a throat infection.

The next scheduled show is Sydney on Wed 12th November.
