Total Wave Presents Soul II Soul 3oth Anniversary Australian Tour

The 30th Anniversary Australia Tour 2020 Club Classics Vol 1 and The Greatest Hits.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since Soul II Soul’s triumphant debut album Club Classics Vol 1 landed in 1989. Originally creating a buzz via their sound system playing at their own night at the Africa Centre they would quickly move to the bigger Fridge Nightclub in London such was the excitement around them.

Soul II Soul was integral in helping establish a brand new urban soulful scene which would flourish initially in the UK before spreading its wings across the globe. From their early sound system days the Soul II Soul live band would blossom creating their own unique musical blueprint which combined an eclectic mix of UK, Caribbean and US sounds. It was both fresh and exciting with a visual look to match the music.

With the launch of their single Keep On Movin’ featuring Caron Wheeler on vocals in 1989 the band would see immediate chart success across the globe. The single would sell 1 million copies in the US alone topping the dance charts there. Their debut album Club Classics Vol 1 would follow suit going multi platinum in both the UK and the US selling millions of copies worldwide.

The next single from the album Back to Life (However Do You Want Me) would go on to be an even bigger success hitting No1 in multiple countries and cementing the bands whirlwind legacy as it picked up a Grammy in the US. Multiple albums would follow over the next decade with Volume II ‘A new Decade’, Volume III ‘Just right’ and onwards spawning their own chart successes and hugely loved singles before Volume IV ‘The Classic Singles’ would help bring the band to an even wider audience and cement a strong following across Australia.

Soul II Soul are a landmark band whose Club Classics Vol 1 is now widely regarded as one of the stand out albums of the 90’s both musically and for it’s impact on the nascent club scene across the globe. This July Soul II Soul will be touring across Australia recreating Club Classics Vol 1 live with founder member Jazzie B, original vocalist Caron Wheeler and vocalists Charlotte Kelly who has also been an integral part of the band since the 90’s and Nadine Ceaser. They will also be playing many of their worldwide smashes from across their later albums. Expect a night of pure unadulterated feel-good musical bliss.

A classic album, a classic tour, this is a true do not miss musical moment!

Soul II Soul will be appearing at: 11th July – Riverside Theatre, Perth

Ben Elton – Live 2020

Ben Elton will tour Australia in 2020 with a brand-new stand-up show, Ben Elton Live. He last performed stand up in Australia in 2006 but has now returned to the stage with a sold out, 75 date UK tour in 2019, which wraps up in December.

As Ben says: “The last time I toured I was still smarter than my phone. Things have definitely taken a funny turn.”

Ben Elton exploded onto the comedy scene more than 30 years ago, hosting Channel 4’s groundbreaking Saturday Live. Since then Elton has achieved huge success as a stand-up comic, author, playwright, actor and director. He’s written television shows such as The Young Ones, Blackadder, The Thin Blue Line, Mr Bean and many more, as well writing and directing two feature films: 2000’s Maybe Baby and 2017’s Australian-made Three Summers.

A highly respected author, Elton has published 16 best-selling novels, six of which became number one bestsellers. Elton is also widely known for his writing for the stage which includes three smash hit West End plays and the global phenomenon We Will Rock You based on the music of British rock legends Queen.

A serial award winner, he has won three BAFTAs, two Laurence Olivier Awards, The Royal Television Society Writer’s Award, The Golden Dagger UK Crime Writer of the Year Award, The Critics Circle Award for Best Musical and the Eurovision Golden Rose D’Or Lifetime Achievement Award.

UB40

The UK’s most successful reggae band, UB40 have announced their eagerly anticipated return to Australia, to celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary and to perform hits from their latest release ‘For The Many’, which came out in March 2019.

Having previously sold out their 2015, 2017 and 2018 Australian tours, the quintessential UK reggae group will return to Australia in May, with plans to perform in previously uncharted territory; hitting Canberra, Wollongong and the Gold Coast for the first time, as well return performances in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

“Our previous Australian tours were all so much fun for us – you guys definitely know how to party down under” said founding member songwriter Robin Campbell. “We’ve been waiting for a chance to get back out to Australia since we last left, so we’re looking forward to getting down under to celebrate 40 years and a new album, in one of our favourite parts of the world.”

The ‘40th Anniversary For The Many Tour’ will offer audiences a taste of classic hits like ‘Red Red Wine’, ‘I Got You Babe’ and ‘Falling In Love With You’, as well as tracks from the latest release ‘For The Many’ which will performed live in Australia for the first time.

Jimmy Brown said, “For The Many’ is our first original album with Duncan, and a true reflection of where the band are at right now. It gave us an opportunity to go back to our roots and draw on the 1970s-style reggae that inspired us to be in a band in the first place. We intended to make an uncompromising reggae album and I think we have achieved that. There’s lots of dub, various guest toasters and a blend of love songs and political songs. I’m really happy with the final result. We’re really looking forward to playing some of these tunes live on our 40th anniversary tour”.

Becoming a household name around the world throughout the 80s and 90s, UB40 (named after the UK’s unemployment benefit form) became known for reviving reggae across the world, filling the charts with their own songs and creating seminal versions of some of the world’s greatest tunes, crossing radio formats and continuing to dominate the airwaves to this day.

With over forty top 40 hits in their native Britain and sales of over 100 million records, the band – who recently celebrated 40 years together – are one of the biggest UK music acts of all time, and continue to record charting albums while touring across the world including regular trips to Australia where they have firmly found a place in the hearts of fans. After four decades of success including their hit singles, international stadium tours and festival headline slots the band continue with their key founding members and songwriting core, staying true to and building on the legacy and ethos of the band. UB40 are Robin Campbell (co-lead vocals and guitar), Duncan Campbell (lead vocals) Earl Falconer (bass, vocal), Jimmy Brown (drums), Norman Hassan (percussion, vocals). The band also features Martin Meredith (sax) and Laurence Parry (trumpet), who have both been in UB40’s touring line-up for over twenty years, and Tony Mullings (keyboards) and Ian Thompson (sax) creating a genre-defining synergy of horns and rhythm section that are uniquely UB40.

Joining them for their Australian leg of tour, is New Zealand’s incredible roots reggae band House of Shem!

Careers Expo & VET Expo – Postponed

The Western Australian Government has declared a State of Emergency and issued Mass Gatherings Directions. Together, these ordinances preclude the Careers Expo occurring on the original dates of 21 – 24 May 2020. On this basis, the Careers Expo cannot be staged on the original dates in May 2020.

When will the event be staged?

We are uncertain as to when we will be permitted to stage the event. The State of Emergency is currently in place until 2 April 2020, but it is unlikely that it will be lifted on that date. Subject to venue availability, it may be possible to stage the event later this year. We have retained next year’s booking with the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (13 – 20 May 2021) and this may be the earliest date on which we can stage the event.

When will we know more?

As you can appreciate, this is a rapidly evolving situation with many moving parts. We will use our best endeavours to keep you informed of any developments.

Please be confident that we will continue to work in the best interests of our exhibitors and Expo visitors and the broader community. If you have any immediate concerns, please email us at careers@exibit.com.au. While we will do our best to answer any queries, please appreciate that this is a rapidly evolving situation and we may simply have no better information than is available from public sources.

Keep safe and best regards,

Paula Zaza, Sales Director
