One of Australia’s best live bands of the 90’s, CHOCOLATE STARFISH, have been announced as special guests at Weekend Of Rock at Adelaide Oval on Friday February 19th, hitting the main stage with iconic hometown favourites The Angels.
Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990’s and quickly established themselves as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’, their original smash hit ‘Mountain’ and the perennial favourite ‘Four Letter Word’.
Twenty-five plus years later, the band is living up to its reputation and then some, still blowing audiences away with their powerhouse performances and magnetic stage presence. Driving this rock ‘n’ roll juggernaut is electric, engaging front man Adam Thompson, whose provocative vocals and unpredictable stage antics compel audiences to join in as he leads them in what can only be described as a mass game of ‘Simon Says’…’Starfish Says’!
“It’s an honour to kickstart the Weekend Of Rock in Adelaide,” Adam Thompson from Chocolate Starfish said. “After the uncertainty and lean times of 2020 concerts, what better place to showcase some of Australia’s staple rock bands, than at the Adelaide Oval, one of the country’s most iconic sporting venues.
“Dave Gleeson and I are probably two of the most unpredictable front men in the country, so if you’re looking to be entertained, this bill of The Angels and Chocolate Starfish is the one for you,” Thompson said. “The one thing we both can guarantee is loud, bombastic, cheeky rock and roll without limitation.”
As The Angels perform their catalogue of hits from a career spanning over 45 years as Australia’s longestlasting band, Weekend Of Rock will now kick off in spectacular style on the Friday night. It’s a rock ‘n’ roll fan’s perfect Friday night out!
Triple M Adelaide present a line-up of Australia’s most popular acts across three nights of live music with Weekend Of Rock, Friday 19th, Saturday 20th, Sunday 21st February 2021. The concert series to be held on Adelaide Oval, marks one year since the Oval hosted Queen as the last live music act to perform there prior to COVID-19.
Tickets for all three concerts are on sale now from Ticketek.com.au, with two seating categories available priced from only $79.00 per night. VIP packages are also available from $149 per night.
Adelaide Oval will offer a new live music experience in 2021 as it transforms from a premier sporting ground into a dedicated venue for South Australian audiences to enjoy a massive weekend of rock in February.
Saturday night Zep Boys bring the world’s leading Led Zeppelin live show to the Oval, along with a special performance by 1960’s garage band favourites, The Masters Apprentices. These two legendary South Australian bands have been sharing their world class music for decades and enjoy continuing popularity with music fans of all ages.
Taking to the stage on Sunday to round out the concert series is one of Australia’s most talented rock musicians Jon Stevens, performing Noiseworks and INXS hits, who will be joined by Daryl Braithwaite and
80’s rock/pop favourites Boom Crash Opera.
Jon continues his phenomenal success as a solo artist after a long career as lead singer of Noiseworks, INXS and The Dead Daisies.
Daryl Braithwaite’s famous unique voice has given him an unparalleled career as one of the most popular Australian male artists of all time.
Boom Crash Opera remain a hugely popular live act with their up-tempo anthemic songs standing the test of time from the 80’s to today.
