BIG TOP LUNA PARK

Live Review: The Prodigy - Big Top Luna Park, Sydney (11.03.15)

As the only Australian sideshow to their Future Music Festival appearances, The Prodigy gave Sydney yet another look at their intensely brilliant live show, working new and old tracks into their ridiculously energetic, explosive blend of numerous styles. It was my sixth or seventh time witnessing the boys live, and I still consider them to be the best live act in the world; but also the most painful.

Photo Gallery: Smashing Pumpkins + Gerard Way - Big Top Luna Park, Sydney (25.02.15)

Smashing Pumpkins played a fantastic set on Wednesday night at the Big Top in Luna Park finishing with a cover of David Bowie's "Fame". Gerard Way played a tight supporting set for the Pumpkins.

Photo Gallery and Live Review: Soundgarden - Big Top Luna Park (27.02.15)

Soundgarden by Lachlan Mitchell for The AU Review

Like old friends reuniting, “The Telephantasm” played over the speakers as Soundgarden strutted onto the Big Top Luna Park stage and met their adoring fans with a hit-laden and triumphant 2.5 hour set that proved the band have been in their ‘prime’ for 25 years and counting.

Live Review: The Smashing Pumpkins + Gerard Way - The Big Top, Sydney (25.02.15)

For a long while there Billy Corgan’s eccentricities overshadowed his music. Every month another piece of click-bait drama emerged; dating Courtney Love, forming his own wrestling company, and waging war on everyone from his contemporaries to pop music itself. It was a thrill to walk out of Luna Park’s Big Top with The Smashing Pumpkins music having been the epicentre of the night.

Live Review: Sean Paul + Mya + Lazy J + Young Men Society - Big Top Luna Park, Sydney (13.11.14)

It may be easy to forget of Sean Paul's dominance in pop music seeing as the once ubiquitous dancehall mastermind hasn't really been the limelight since hits like "Get Busy" and "Temperature" broke charts the world over. You may even be forgiven in heading along to his Sydney headline concert with some very low expectations, expecting to see a man clinging to relevance with a backing track and hype man; I must admit, I've become pretty cynical about these types of shows. My expectations were completely flipped on the night, the headline act bringing with him a perfectly balanced band and gave us over an hour of exciting, boundless energy, and of course, dutty rock. Along for the ride was another star who hasn't been too prolific in recent years, but has a far few hits stored away from the early 2000s. Mya, equipped with two new independently released EPs, came to remind us not to count her out of the scene just yet.

Hello Asia! Live Review: B1A4 Road Trip - Big Top Luna Park, Sydney (20.09.14)

“What’s Happening?” What’s up, what’s up, B1A4 is what’s up! After hitting off their Australian Road Trip World Tour in Melbourne, B1A4 proceeded to bring the fun to Sydney. Jinyoung, CNU, Baro, Sandeul, and Gongchan were ready to have fun with their Sydney BANAs (B1A4’s fanclub) who have been waiting patiently under the bright Sydney sun to see their idols performing live before their eyes. Since K-Pop fans in Australia do not get many chances to see their idols live, there were a lot of other K-Pop fans that came to watch and support B1A4.
