This performance will feature over 22 of his most popular hits, such as I' ll Never Fall in Love Again, I Say a Little Prayer, That’s What Friends Are For, Close To You, Alfie, What The World Needs Now, Walk On By, Raindrops, This Guy’s in Love With You, Promises Promises, and more.

Now aged 87, Burt Bacharach still tours the world, and was recently in Australia.

BABBA is the most exciting and musically accurate tribute to ABBA in the world. In a spellbinding performance of all the hits, BABBA takes you on a musical journey that will have you on your feet uncontrollably.

Benny, Bjorn, Agnetha and Frida have returned (with the help of a cryogenic freezer and some cosmetic surgery) to transport you back to the 70s with a show full of humour, great costumes, Swedish accents and fun-filled dance floor action.

With spine tingling harmonies and a band that will rock your socks off, BABBA is simply the best night out in town.

Tony Joe White was literally born for the blues, the part-Cherokee musician being brought up as part of a big brood on a cotton farm in Louisiana, raised on a diet of Lightnin’ Hopkins and local bluesmen, an upbringing reflected to this day in his evocative, haunting music and adding a veneer of authenticity to everything that he touches.

So whether you’ve been with White for the duration or are a newcomer to his incredible music it matters not – come along and join the festivities when the legend that is Tony Joe White hits Australia in 2017.
