The Life and Music of STEVIE WRIGHT and THE EASYBEATS
“A STAGE MUSICAL OF ROCKUMENTARY PROPORTIONS “
Saturday 29 November 2014 Thebarton Theatre ADELAIDE
For teenagers who think they know everything to baby boomers who have done everything!
The TRUE story of a life filled with drugs, women, rock and roll and 18 hit songs!
SCOTT McRAE stars in this world first, warts and all story – live on stage.
“The Life and Music of STEVIE WRIGHT and THE EASYBEATS” takes the audience through the highs of legendary rocker Stevie Wright being our first international superstar with Australia’s biggest band of the era, The Easybeats.
After the highs, came the lows of drug and alcohol addiction and the controversial treatment at the notorious Chelmsford Hospital.
Featuring a mind blowing band and with SCOTT McRAE up front in an electrifying performance, this is a stage musical that has audiences out of their seats from the very first note. This highly acclaimed production features never before seen footage of past mates, fellow musicians and even some old girlfriends! Archival footage and imagery sets the scene and takes you back to those heady days as Scott and the band roll through 18 hits songs including ‘Friday on my Mind’, ‘Evie’, ‘She’s So Fine’ and many many more.
The theatrical masterpiece is now in its third touring year as 2014 celebrates the 50th anniversary of The Easybeats.
SCOTT McRAE is one of Australia’s most multi-talented performers. Scott has a long career covering all forms of entertainment – he’s a well known and sought after TV presenter, producer, TV/film/stage actor, singer, voiceover artist and MC.
Stevie Wright says, “Scotty, man you can sing, that was like watching myself up there!
ABC-TV’s ‘Australian Story’ aired the episode “So Much To Say” in February 2013, which featured a look back at Stevie’s life and footage of this production including Stevie’s last public performance joining Scott McRae onstage for the encore.
“A must see stage production now touring” – Today Show’s Richard Wilkins
“I have seen the show and shared my Stevie memories from Superstar for the big screen component. It’s nice to see an Aussie production that keeps the story of a great Australian band, Stevie Wright and The Easybeats alive.” – Jon English
‘The incredible exploits of Little Stevie and the incredible Easybeats are part of our national cultural fabric. To see it all come alive on stage, with obvious affection, is a rewarding experience”. – Glenn A. Baker
The Life and Music of Stevie Wright and The Easybeats is a full blown stage musical…a rockumentary. NOT an ordinary cover band show!
