Hit vocal group The 60 Four are touring their highly successful ‘60s music act all over South Australia singing sweet tunes across the state.
The 60 Four will be performing live between February and April 2022 as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Ben Francis, Lachlan Williams, Finnegan Green and Kyle Hall will take their award-winning, critically acclaimed act to locations including Renmark, Kangaroo Island, Whyalla, Mount Gambier, Victor Harbor, Port Pirie, Noarlunga, Elizabeth, and Adelaide.
Director Ben Francis is passionate about providing a post-pandemic economic and tourism boost to regional communities, whilst also providing paid employment to local musicians.
“It has been a tumultuous couple of years, but we really want to be able to take our show to the regions,” Ben said.
“It’s precarious, and a little nerve-racking, but we are turning a page, and that’s exciting.
“We want to bring a slice of the ‘60s to as many South Australians as we can.”
The 60 Four have wowed audiences throughout South Australia for five years, with their sharp suits, slick moves and tight harmonies.
They perform hits from ‘60s megastars including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons and Johnny O’Keefe.
The 60 Four receive exclusively 5-star reviews and, earlier this year, received a Best Music Award during the Adelaide Fringe.
In February 2022, they will debut their show in Perth as part of the annual Fringe World Festival, supported by the State of Western Australia.
“The 60 Four started as four high-school boys singing ‘60s music in empty classrooms during lunch,” Ben said.
“It is so humbling and exciting that we are able to share this brilliant music with audiences all over Australia.”
The 60 Four’s regional tour is supported by a contribution by the Adelaide Fringe Foundation through the Artist Grant program.
They are touring with a spectacular nine-piece band made up of local, emerging musicians on all of their shows aside from those at Victor Harbor and Kangaroo Island.
For the last two years, The 60 Four has had members living in Melbourne, Perth and Queensland as well as Adelaide.
Navigating border closures, restrictions and lockdowns has made performing together virtually impossible. Now, with everyone residing in SA, it’s time to head back to the 60s in a state-wide celebration of the arts and entertainment industry.
There are a number of safety measures that are being put in place to keep the performances as safe as possible:
- All staff, cast and crew are double (and triple) vaccinated
- All patrons must have had two doses of an ATAGI approved COVID-19 vaccination unless a valid medical exemption applies (these are all double-vaccinated events)
- Unless otherwise advised by SA Health, all patrons will be required to wear masks during the performance.
- The shows are abiding by all current capacity restrictions and density requirements.
- If this means it is necessary to cancel or postpone any shows, all patrons will be offered a full refund.
