8 November 2020 | Perth Concert Hall | Get tickets
Amongst the chaos of cancellations and postponements earlier this year one event that looked to be cancelled completely was Archie Roach’s final tour. Happily, there are now new tickets available for a rescheduled event in November.
With a musical career that spanned over 30 years of award-winning albums, Archie has also led a truly intriguing life. Described as the ‘voice of the stolen generation’ he overcame teenage alcohol addiction to become a social activist, First Nations leader and icon. Don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate his career and farewell from the stage one of Australia’s most important singer songwriters.
P.S There’s also rumours that Archie has a memoir in the works, so keep an eye out later this year because its sure to be a compelling read!

Get ready for a drink and a giggle at the Generous Squire when Brewed Laughter, beer tasting with a comedian, comes back on the scene. It’ll be close-up comedy in an intimate setting, but you’ll have to hop to it and book quickly as each round is limited to 40 people.

11 – 26 September 2020 | His Majesty’s Theatre | Book now
Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a story of love, passion and darkness seems like it was made to be expressed through the strength and grace of ballet. And if you were ever in doubt about how tough ballerinas are, try spending a day training with Nikki Blain from WA Ballet.
Performed as a co-production of the West Australian Ballet and Queensland Ballet, and directed by one of the world’s most exciting choreographers, Krzysztof Pastor this is a wonderful chance to experience a gothic masterpiece in the classical setting of His Majesty’s Theatre.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!
28 November to 20 December 2020 | State Theatre Centre of WA | Book now
On a cheerier note if you are looking for a good wholesome story, you can’t go past Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! Set in a simpler time, when cowboys and farmers were fighting over fences and water rights, unfolds the story of a young farm girl as she struggles to choose between two suitors.
It’s a fresh look at a classic musical that I for one am looking forward to experiencing from the audience and not side of stage like I did when I was the prompt for my high school production!
19 December 2020 | RAC Arena | Get tickets
Tame Impala’s live performances are as well-known as their music and arguably one of the reasons they have headlined the likes of Glastonbury and Coachella. Think pretty smoke clouds, otherworldly lights, and of course mega confetti cannons. Pair this with how seriously good their new album ‘The Slow Rush’ is and you’ll agree this gig is sure to be the glittering jewel in your December event calendar.

Look no further to get your required dose of indie pop-punk in the awesome setting of Badlands Bar. And if you’re like me you’ve had so long to practice the lyrics to songs like Jellyfish “now that s***’s crazy” you’re sure to be down for a good ol singalong too!
Check out the ‘Race Car Blues’ album on your fave streaming service and start polishing those pipes!
