Ah, Tenacious D. The infamous rock and roll duo (although perhaps they are best described as a "rock and roll tribute act"), comprised of Kyle Gass and Jack Black were last seen on our shores supporting the Foo Fighters at the end of last 2011. Since then they have released a new record (Rize of the Fenix, to little fervour compared to their earlier works), and now they have returned to bring their spirited and hilarious performance to the Sydney Opera House and other venues around Australia on their "Old School and Acoustic" tour.

Indie darlings Tegan and Sara have come a long way over the last eight years since their first visit to Australia. It was 2005 and they had come as the support act for Little Birdy. When Katy Steele fell ill and cancelled the dates, the Canadian duo solidered on, becoming accidental headliners. It turned out most people had come to see them anyway.
When one wants to create a truly mesmerising show, they need a venue to back it up, and The Counting Crows couldn’t have picked better than the iconic and stunning Sydney Opera House for Tuesday night’s show.

From the moment Jeff Tweedy plucked the first chord of “One Sunday Morning” on the stroke of 9:30pm, it quickly became evident that while meticulous, Wilco were above all else a band of phenomenal musicians. The Chicagoan sextet have been hailed as the last great American rock band, and while opinions may vary, Wilco’s stage presence is undeniable. Together with virtuosic guitarist Nels Cline, founding bassist John Stirrat, Glenn Kotche, Mikael Jorgensen, and Patrick Sansone, Wilco commanded the attention of the Sydney audience for their “Evening with Wilco” performance.
The imposing stage of the Sydney Opera House could be a confronting proposition for any musician, especially when it's only adorned with a chair, a guitar and a piano. But for The Tallest Man On Earth , aka Kristian Matsson, the stage of the Opera House was the perfect setting for his engaging brand of performance.
To see a first time Sydney Opera House performance of one of Australia’s newest talents at the same time as seeing a showcase of vintage Australiana is a pleasure beyond comparison. I’m sorry Neil, I know you’re a Kiwi, but face the facts: we’ve adopted you and your bro’ Tum and we ain’t letting go.

Last night, the legendary Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds kicked off the first of three nights at the iconic Sydney Opera House, accompanied by members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra string section and a youth choir from Annandale. The resulting two hour performance was one of such high calibre that this run of shows will surely go down as some of the most legendary events ever to take place under the venue's sails. But this is Nick Cave after all, would you expect any less?
Sarah Blasko’s Sydney Opera House show was not her debut at this iconic venue. But it was her first time performing there with an orchestra in tow. Her latest album, I Awake features a newer, “full” sound. It’s one she’s described as having given her all. While recording, she got the Bulgarian Symphony Orchestra to create an avalanche of sound and something she described as: soaring, shrieking, simple and striking. And that describes this show to a tee.
