AUSTRALIA’S PREMIER PINK FLOYD TRIBUTE ANNOUNCES MASSIVE 2019 “THE WALL” 40th ANNIVERSARY TOUR
Australia’s largest scale Pink Floyd concept act Echoes of Pink Floyd is celebrating 40 years since the release of the iconic and career defining double album for Pink Floyd – “The Wall”.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the seminal album’s release, Echoes of Pink Floyd will perform “The Wall” in its entirety, along with an encore featuring a special selection of Pink Floyd’s greatest hits.
“The Wall” was the eleventh studio album by the English rockers and was released on November 30 1979. It topped the US Billboard charts for 15 weeks and became the band’s second best-selling album and one of the best-selling albums of all time. It was adapted into a feature film and the single from the album, titled “Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2”, was the band’s first and only number-one single.
Formed in 2009 and with thousands of hours of rehearsal and live performance behind them, Echoes of Pink Floyd comprises a six-piece band featuring Daniel Hunter on lead guitar; Jason Miller on drums; Mark Dole on bass; Paul Bindig on keyboards and synthesisers; Mark MacNab on rhythm and acoustic guitar and Matt Goodluck on lead vocals. The band’s aim is to authentically replicate the brilliant sights and sounds of one of the world’s greatest progressive rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd. The Adelaide-based tribute has been touring nationally since 2014, with audiences describing the show as “amazingly awesome” and “a musical and visual journey that never disappoints”, whilst also likening them to “the original band”
Annette will guide knitters with basic/intermediate experience to read charts and knit lace. Annette will unravel various lace techniques and the knitty gritty behind them on the day. Participants will
leave with a knowledge of lace knitting that empowers them to explore the technique for themselves. The wool supplied for the workshop is from Tarndie – Historic Homestead at Warncoort.
The goal of this workshop is to challenge knitters to add something new to their repertoire. Double knitting produces the same pattern on both sides of the finished piece. Annette’s signature is her quirky knitted face scarf and participants will be able to leave with a simple face and know how to further their exploration of this technique. The wool supplied for this workshop is from the Bendigo Woollen Mills.
To be held on the PAC stage - Limited to 30 participants

“If I could not grasp the truth about women in the past, why bother about women in the future?” Virginia Woolf
In Sentient Theatre’s inaugural piece, we celebrate the beautiful literacy and conceptual genius of Virginia Woolf, one of the greatest writers of the 20th Century, and her classic work, A Room of One’s Own.
The piece both energetically debates and gently reflects on the history of gender disparity, while keeping Woolf’s striking use of metaphor and charming humour alive.
“A Room of One’s Own [is] witty, supple, and conducted in a spirit of restless inquiry, anchoring emotion with intellect, infusing argument with narrative technique. This luminous, accessible production captures the beauty of Woolf’s prose and the complexity of her ideas [and] gives her potent words vivid voice.” Cameron Woodhead, The Age
Daniel Thompson’s Johnny Cash Live
Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On
In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, San Quentin.
With the Folsom album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, At San Quentin continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music.
During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song San Quentin which opens with the lyrics “San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me” and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the At San Quentin album. Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, A Boy Named Sue, which undeniably made Cash a global superstar and household name. Sue became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by the Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Women’.
50 Years on, Daniel Thompson’s Johnny Cash Live hits the road celebrating this legendary album and the career of the Man in Black.
A brand new show featuring more than 35 hits, Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On includes the great moments of the San Quentin album plus hits and favourites spanning Cash’s entire 50 year recording career.
After 6 National tours and having performed more than 175 shows, Johnny Cash Live has become lauded as one of Australia’s premier tribute acts. With powerhouse backing band, The Tennessee Express and led by Australia’s own Man in Black, Daniel Thompson, Johnny Cash Live presents an unforgettable night paying tribute to one of music’s most iconic and influential figures.
With more than 60 thousand tickets sold Australia wide, don’t miss your chance to see what has audiences on their feet and coming back each year for more.
