With special guests Ukelele Death Squad
The GOV – Sunday October 23
Presented by Premier Artists
After a tough year of cancelled shows, lock downs and juggling dates in 2021, Joe and The Black Sorrows are back on the road for a series of huge shows at clubs and festivals around Australia. Warming up with a few choice Australian shows late August, The Black Sorrows are back to Europe in September 2022 with shows in Italy, Switzerland and Germany. This will see Joe and the band road ready and gig fit for you on their Australian Tour running October – December 2022.
Joe is busting to
get back out there but has not been sitting idle between sell out shows! He has
been hard at work on a new Sorrows’ album and you should keep your eyes peeled
for a great new live album including many of your Sorrows’ favs coming out
later this year.
The Black Sorrows continue to be one Australia’s most prolific and enduringly popular bands renowned for their high – energy live shows, musicianship, and infectious, roots – soaked blues rock. They’ve sold more than two million albums to date and won an ARIA Award for Best Group. Joe Camilleri has been at the forefront of Australian music for decades as the leader of
Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons and The Black Sorrows and as writer of radio anthems Hit & Run, Shape I’m In, Chained To The Wheel, Harley & Rose and Never Let Me Go .
Joe Camilleri is an ARIA Hall of Famer and, at 74 years of age, a rock’n’roll lifer who still rock the house.
“It just feels great to get back to doing what I love” Joe Camilleri
The Ukulele Death Squad (UDS) have grown bigger and better since their 2017 inception, bringing a new sense of anarchy to the humble Ukulele. The Squad bring a frenetic energy to the uke with their own flamenco, RnB and folk style. With additional performers joining in 2019, the full harmonic and titillating vocal stylings, paired with thumping rhythms, outrageous solos and sensual sax, the squad offers audiences a place to get down and dirty.
The Adelaide Fringe Award winning and critically acclaimed act have sold out show after show, irresponsibly setting local and international audiences ablaze with no intention of slowing down. Expect the unexpected and throw out everything you thought you knew about the uke – the devilish Ukulele Death Squad are coming for you.
“Loud, raucous and infectiously fun, this Squad might have looked like respectable businessmen with their suits and sunglasses but they nevertheless brought the house down!” – The Clothesline
