Hope Rocks: John Farnham

It’s set to be an all Aussie celebration when JOHN FARNHAM, JON STEVENS, SHANNON NOLL and THE BLACK SORROWS descend on Hope Estate in NSW’s Hunter Valley on Saturday 8th April 2017.

 


Headlined by the artist simply recognised as ‘The Voice’, the Hunter Valley will be gifted with all the classics from the iconic JOHN FARNHAM, an Australian legend who is cemented in the musical culture of the country and continues to resonate with all countrymen crossing over generations.

Joining Farnham for this special once only experience will be JON STEVENS who rose to fame with NOISEWORKS and also boasts a long and successful solo career, the resurgent SHANNON NOLL and the ever popular THE BLACK SORROWS.

 

Hope Rocks presents John Farnham, Jon Stevens, The Black Sorrows, Shannon NollIn a country of 22 million people, John Farnham is the one Australian artist who stages arena-sized concerts whenever he tours to satisfy the demand. He is Australia’s most successful solo artist, on-stage and on record. His Whispering Jack album was the first album to sell over a million copies in Australia alone. The anthemic single “You’re the Voice” restored Farnham to number one for the first time in 17 years. The carefully crafted adult contemporary October 1986 album Whispering Jack was number one 18 weeks, and became the biggest-selling album in Australian history. “You’re the Voice” sold a million copies in Europe and reached the Top Ten in England. A consummate singer and performer since 1986, Farnham has been Australia’s number one attraction, with successive big-selling albums and sold-out concert tours. International interest has continued to beckon, but the dedicated family man is happy with his career as it is.

Jon Stevens is recognized as one of the most talented rock musicians to emerge from Australia in recent memory. He has had phenomenal success as a solo artist, knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the charts in Australia, and as the lead singer of major rock acts, Noiseworks, INXS after the death of his friend Michael Hutchence, and the Dead Daisies. In 2016 he joined forces with legendary musician, songwriter and producer Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) to record a new album, Starlight.

Shannon Noll’s everyman appeal lies in his honesty, he strikes a chord with legions of music fans, tapping into a pure emotion that’s both his own and instantly relatable. Since taking to the stage and commencing his successful recording career, Australia’s favourite son “Nollsie” has on to receive acclaim with certified triple-platinum sales, number #1 hits, five top 10 albums, has 17 platinum and three gold accreditations, and boasts a reputation as the only Australian male artist in national chart history to have ever achieved ten consecutive top ten singles.  Undeniably, Shannon Noll has captured the hearts and minds of music fans around Australia and overseas with his raw, gifted rockvoice.  He remains one of the most recognisable names and faces in the Australian music industry with only a few matching his success.

The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia’s most enduring touring bands and have earned the reputation as a dynamic live act. There is a level of accessibility to The Black Sorrows that can appeal to the newest of fan. At the helm, Joe Camilleri steers the band through an energetic interplay of solid grooves and well- crafted songs that mix those well-worn ingredients of blues, soul, r & b, gospel, with flashes of country and even Brill Building pop.

Speaking about this special performance, John Farnham said,

“I have not performed at Hope Estate for some time now and I am so looking forward to being there again on April 8th. This will be the last show on my current regional tour and could not wish for a better venue to play”.
