Five shows go on sale today ahead of The Garden’s full program being announced on November 28 including: The ultimate wild and sexy circus party – LIMBO – returns; iconic Australian comedian Dave Hughes presents his new show Pumped; and cult indie figure J Mascis gets his acoustic guitar out for the first time in Adelaide (and his treasured electric guitar makes another appearance) for an intimate evening of his hits ranging his entire career.
Grammy Award winner, Wally De Backer’s punk rock’n’roll gang band The Basics play one Adelaide gig only for their The Lucky Country tour; and to kick off his national Dirty Ground Tour, Australia’s rock ‘n roll heartthrob Dan Sultan plays two massive shows.
Last month the one-woman show by Tessa Waters (Sydney Morning Herald’s Top 10 Next Big Things in Comedy), WOMANz – on in The Garden of Unearthly Delight’s Campanile – went on sale via FringeTIX, taking the total of shows on sale to six.
13 -28 FEB (EXCL. 16 & 23 FEB) | 8.30pm + ADDITIONAL MATINEES SAT 4pm
The ultimate party, staged somewhere between heaven and hell, is back for a limited season with circus that’s wild, wicked and out of this world. Award-winning LIMBO has stunned audiences world-wide with its jaw-dropping contortion, dance, acrobatics and illusions.
Take your seats for the show so hot, Madonna came twice.
Dave Hughes: Pumped
13 FEB – 1 MAR (EXCL. 16 FEB) | 8.15pm
Hughesy’s back and he’s fully pumped up! After hitting it out of the park and completely selling-out last Fringe, he can’t wait to get back to The Garden with his brand new hour of jokes.
Dan Sultan: Dirty Ground Tour
19 & 20 FEB | 7pm
Dan Sultan’s national Dirty Ground tour sees the ARIA Award-winner playing in intimate solo mode. The tour celebrates the release of Dan’s latest EP, Dirty Ground, and showcases his unique talent as not only a singer and songwriter, but a teller of stories. Presented in association with the GO! Foundation.
J Mascis: Solo: acoustic and electric
14 FEB | 7pm
‘Mascis had thrilled us for over an hour, making everyone’s eyes twinkle as they sat back, marvelled and at times even levitated due to his astonishing guitar playing’ (AUReview 2012). J Mascis makes his acoustic Adelaide debut performing material from recent solo releases and his acclaimed band Dinosaur Jr.
The Basics: The Lucky Country Tour
FRI 13 FEB | 10.30pm
The Basics are like some punk rock’n’roll gang band that’ve just rolled in on a train that forgot to leave the station sometime last century. But they’ve been listening and they’ve been learning, and they won’t take it lying down… there is literally no better band today.
