    • Northern Festival Centre, Port Pirie

    From the golden era for Australian rock bands, to reinvigorating fans today, 1927 have been entertaining audiences for 30 years and have stood the test of time as icons of the Australian music scene.

    With a debut album that became a smashing success that went five times platinum, stayed in the ARIA chart for 46 weeks, selling an excess of 400,000 copies and winning Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards for best debut single and album, 1927 became a household name in Australia overnight. The album was …. ish. Ian McFarlane in his opus The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop, put it perfectly when he wrote “…. ish is brimful of stirring, stately rock anthems.”

    It is one of the top 10 most successful debut albums for an Australian artist, to multiple ARIA awards, a multi-platinum second album, chart success in Europe and America.

    1927 live is a show not to be missed.
