Boom Crash Opera are an Australian rock institution.

With songs like ‘Onion Skin’, ‘The Best Thing’, ‘Dancing in the Storm’ and many more, they reside in the collective consciousness of a generation. Their charismatic singer, Dale Ryder, sings with power and range, and still possesses the charm that set the hearts of the Countdown generation a-flutter. He is backed by a band that merges energy with art-smarts.

BCO will kick out a bunch of songs you know and then play a bunch of songs you forgot you knew.

Tania Doko and James Roche of Bachelor Girl have proven their enduring, much loved status in Aussie music culture. Their double platinum, ARIA-award winning debut album, featuring hit singles ‘Lucky Me’, ‘Treat Me Good’ and ‘Permission to Shine’, included the international smash, ‘Buses and Trains’.

Written by James, it was credited as the most played Australian composition in the last 25 years. The formidable coupling of songwriting and band performance excellence is landmarked by the recent announcement of Tania Doko’s place in the top 300 of Triple M’s ‘Greatest Singers of All Time’ list.

Catch BCO and Bachelor Girl at their very best at the following venues throughout September and November 2023. Tickets available now from here
