REECE MASTIN and pop rock trio AT SUNSET will join the impressive off-track entertainment line-up for the Clipsal 500 Adelaide when they kick off the concert series at lunchtime on Thursday March 3.
The two South Australian acts will kick off a massive four days of live entertainment which also features International Grammy award winning artist ROB THOMAS, Australian singer-songwriter Pete Murray, The Blacks Sorrows featuring Vika and Linda Bull, ICEHOUSE, The Church, PEKING DUK, Sneaky Sound System, Slumberjack, Benson, Keyes and support acts from Music SA.
A proud South Australian and former Golden Grove High student, Mastin will take to the Clipsal 500 concert stage in his first ever live concert performance in his home town at Clipsal 500, after a huge 2015 which saw him sign to a new record label, a new management company and release a new album titled CHANGE COLOURS.
“I’m always eager to get back and play in my home town, especially at events I got to experience as a kid. It’s gonna be a fun day and we’re gonna play as loud as we can! I can’t wait!”, said Reece about returning home next month.
For all the remarkable success Reece has enjoyed since winning that talent show in 2011 as an unknown 16-year-old – including the chart-topping singles Good Night and Shut Up & Kiss Me, both previous albums reaching the top three of the national charts (2011’s 2x platinum self-titled debut at #2 and its follow-up, 2012’s Beautiful Nightmare at #3) – for all that phenomenal success, it’s only now, at age 21 with the release of CHANGE COLOURS that Reece himself feels his true music making journey has finally begun in earnest.
Gone is the pop star that shot to fame as an adolescent. In his place is a mature, self-assured artist with all the poise, charisma and swagger of a bourgeoning rock star with one almighty voice.
AT SUNSET features brothers Harrison and Andrew Kantarias and their friend Tom Jay Williams. Australia’s hottest new pop rock trio have transformed into online sensations over the last two years with over 5 million views on YouTube, and more than a million likes on Facebook.
The trio have performed in the USA and at home in Australia to sell-out crowds and have an ever increasing army of fans globally.
Known for their remarkable covers of some of the world’s biggest pop songs, the Adelaide boys released their debut single Every Little Thing and continue to make inroads on a successful music career. Due to the incredible support from their fans in a voting-based competition, At Sunset were recognised as the first ever winners of MTV Brand New Australia. With the new single Kiss Me released last month and a national headline tour just around the corner, 2016 is set to be an even bigger year!
With just over three weeks until the 2016 Clipsal 500 kicks off, event preparations are in full swing for one of the biggest events to date, with more than 50 action packed attractions both on and off the track.
