The District at SkyCity Adelaide will welcome Aussie rock trio Eskimo Joe on September 8, following the live music venue’s successful first ticketed event, The Superjesus, last week.
Eskimo Joe were forced to reschedule their slated February concert to September, but they’re looking forward to playing at SkyCity Adelaide’s dedicated live music venue.
Eskimo Joe’s Kav Temperley says: “We love Radalaide so much, and we are so happy to be finally coming back to play a show!”
Eskimo Joe used the Covid-19 lockdown to write songs and in February announced the release of a self-described isolation love song, ’99 Ways,’ as their first single of the year.
Eskimo Joe have successfully straddled the line between commercial success and keeping their alternative music roots secure over their career.
Racking up six studio albums and sales in excess of 750,000 in Australia, the band has had three albums debut at No. 1 on the ARIA charts, with juggernaut ‘Black Fingernails, Red Wine’ shining for a monster 62 weeks in the ARIA Chart Top 50 and “Foreign Land,” from their fourth album ‘Inshalla,’ bringing home 2 APRA Awards, for Most Played Rock Song on Australian radio and Best Rock Song of 2010.
Eskimo Joe’s enjoyed 36 ARIA nominations to date, a number only surpassed by Silverchair, Powderfinger, Kylie Minogue and John Farnham. The single ‘Say Something’ was released in May last year to critical acclaim.
The District at SkyCity Adelaide, Australia’s first fully functional brewery within a casino, officially opened to the public late last year with a free concert by South Australian indie pop rock sister band, Germein.
The District venue manager, Jarrad Anderson, says: “It felt like a long time coming, but the energy brought to The District by The Superjesus in our first ticketed show was astounding – we were stoked.
“The unprecedented level of stress in recent times for people in the entertainment industry who rely on live events has been worrying, but it was a thrill to see the return.
“We host local live acts at The District multiple times each week, and supporting Australian performers and even more broadly, music-industry workers, is really important to us.”
The District is a dedicated live entertainment space on Level 1 in the original SkyCity building and it has been a key pillar of SkyCity’s $330 million transformation into a world class integrated casino and entertainment precinct.
The District at SkyCity brings together all venues on Level 1: live entertainment, a Pirate Life brewery, the Sports Bar, Poker Zone and Bistro, in one unique offering that also includes a mezzanine level, allowing increased capacity for live entertainment, where customers can enjoy Pirate Life beers tailor made for The District.
