Travel through decades with the legendary JPY

AUSSIE legend John Paul Young will transport audiences to the 1960s, 70s and 80s when he rocks into Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL this month.

John Paul Young and the All Star Band presents ‘The Vanda and Young Songbook’, a tribute to two of the most extraordinary songwriters of our time, celebrating the songs that gave Australia its unique soundtracks during that era and still to this day.
Travel through the decades of mega hits and John’s own behind the scenes stories about the songs and their making, at a time when music was king.
You’ll hear hits written for The Easybeats, AC/DC, Grace Jones, Ted Mulry, John himself and more.
If you loved the music from the hugely successful ABC TV series ‘Blood and Thunder’, then this show is for you. This show will have you up and dancin’ like it’s 1979.
One of the most iconic artists in Australian music’s history, John has enjoyed over four million worldwide album sales and numerous awards which garnered him an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2009.
In 2012, he received an Order of Australia (OAM) for his services to charity and the music industry.
The Allstar Band features two of the original members in Warren ‘The Pig’ Morgan who cut his teeth in the original Aztecs and Ronnie ‘Rockwell T James’ Peel of The Missing Links and La De Das fame. Both have been with John since the beginning and have been joined over the years by Greg Plimmer, Juan Gonzalez and Michael ‘China’ Walker, with Paul Kirtley (percussionist) now joining the troupe.
The show will be this Saturday, September 14, at 8.30pm. Tickets: $49. To book, visit chprsl.com.au.
