An Evening with Randy Newman

American music legend, Randy Newman, returns to Australia in January-February 2020, for the first time in almost ten years.
With a career spanning five decades, a catalogue of songs that run the gamut from heartbreaking to satirical, plus a host of unforgettable film scores, Randy Newman is a cultural icon, a “national treasure” (NPR).

“Few songwriters can cut to the quick the way Newman does. He remains a great American songbook unto himself.” – The Guardian

Since 1968, Newman has released a slew of solo records, most recently 2017’s critically acclaimed Dark Matter, which includes the Grammy Award-winning track ‘Putin’. His legendary repertoire includes ‘Short People’, ‘You Can Leave Your Hat On’, ‘I Love LA’, ‘Sail Away’, ‘Mama Told Me (Not To Come)’ to name a few.

Newman’s impressive, prolific talent has also seen him score all four Toy Story films, along with feature pictures Monsters Inc. and Monsters University, Seabiscuit, Cars, A Bug’s Life and Meet The Parents amongst others. In 2018 he collaborated with Rex Orange County on his version of Newman’s ‘You’ve Got A Friend In Me’, and in 2019, in addition to Toy Story 4, he collaborated with Chance The Rapper on ‘5 Year Plan’ for the album The Big Day.

Randy Newman’s incredible list of accolades includes seven Grammys, three Emmys, and two Academy Awards (from an incredible twenty nominations), as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.

An Evening with Randy Newman promises to be a magical night, a taste of a storied career that has brought joy to generations. Australian audiences are in for a treat when this legend touches down in January.

11th Annual WA Major Projects Conference 2020

Playing host to 250+ attendees, 25+ speakers and 7+ networking hours, the conference provides a platform to discuss major infrastructure projects that are currently underway or in the pipeline. With the State and Federal Government heavily investing in the country’s largest state, WA is expected to deliver a plethora of opportunities.

CEDA: Engaging Asia

With a population set to exceed five billion in 30 years’ time, Asia will account for more than half of the world’s economy. WA is uniquely situated in the world’s richest time zone; the state’s future economic prosperity rests on how it engages with this opportunity.

The potential to deepen and diversify relationship across key priority sectors, cultural partnerships and enhanced people-to-people relationships is high, but this won’t happen by accident.

Minister Tinley will be joined by leaders from across industry and academia who will reflect on the impact and importance of the Asian region to WA’s future prosperity.

Dylan Moran – Dr Cosmos Tour

Legendary Irish comedian Dylan Moran is returning to Australia with a brand-new show Dr. Cosmos. Moran will once again offer his unique take on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life, all served with poetical panache from one of the finest comedians of his generation.  

Moran has been called the Oscar Wilde of comedy and his famed style – deadpan, witty and crackpot lyricism – promises to be an unmissable journey through his interpretations of the world, swerving cliche to offer a cutting blow to our idiosyncrasies.

Dylan Moran is a comedian, actor and writer who, in 1996 at the Edinburgh Fringe, became the youngest ever winner of the Perrier Award. He went on to co-write and star in Black Books which won two BAFTAs. Other notable screen roles include Notting Hill, Calvary, Shaun of the Dead and Run Fatboy Run. Moran has toured the world many times, including versions of his show as far afield as Kazakhstan, Ukraine and across the US. His last tour, Off the Hook, took in 149 dates across the globe.

Don’t miss the one and only Dylan Moran! These shows will sell out!

JUST ANNOUNCED! Due to popular demand, Dylan Moran will now be taking the stage for a second show on Friday 15 November.

★★★★ “Trumping Shakespeare, he reduces life to four ages: “Child, failure, old and dead”. Faced with one-liners as killing as that the world suddenly seems a better place.”

The Telegraph

★★★★ “His comedy takes on an existential dimension, as tubby, nicotine-starved, emasculated Moran comes to represent the struggles we all wage for meaning and connection”

The Guardian

★★★★ “High-octane riffs from Irish master of grumpiness…spellbinding”

Evening Standard

★★★★ “In his heightened ideas and vocabulary, Moran compulsively swerves clichés as he builds up layers of laughs… funny and fascinating, and utterly deserving of his place in the modern classics’

Jonathan Van Ness: Road to Beijing

Emmy-nominated television personality, podcaster and hairstylist to the stars, Jonathan Van Ness, is set to bring his Road to Beijing world tour to Australia this February!

As the star of the Emmy-nominated web series Gay of Thrones, and the Emmy-winning reality show Queer Eye, Jonathan Van Ness has become known in the entertainment industry for his fabulous, unstoppable energy. For the first time, he will bring that energy to the stand-up stages in Australia and New Zealand in February 2020, with his unforgettable live show, serving cirque-du-so-gay-realness between stand-up sets so good your face will be in need of a massage from all the smiling. It’s all inspired by his ongoing attempt—and lifelong obsession—to become a figure-skating prodigy just in time for the next Olympic cycle, which just so happens to be in 2022 in Beijing!

As well as shining as Queer Eye’s groomer, hair guru and self-care advocate, Jonathan starred on the Emmy-nominated series “Gay of Thrones” (Funny or Die), a witty social commentary series recapping HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” Launched in 2013, the series just wrapped its seventh and final season and garnered Emmy nominations in 2016 and 2018 for ‘Outstanding Short Form Variety Series.’

Van Ness also continues to work on his passion project, his podcast “Getting Curious,” a weekly exploration of all the things Jonathan is curious about. The podcast was listed as one of the Top Podcasts of 2018 by Time Magazine, and recently won the iHeart Radio Award for Best LGBTQ Podcast. 2018 was a breakthrough year for Jonathan, who realized two new passions – for the arts of stand-up comedy and figure skating. Most recently, Jonathan announced that his revelatory memoir, OVER THE TOP, will be released in September 24, 2019.
