RocKwiz LIVE! is back, baby.

RocKwiz is an Australian music institution, with many a-music fan historically trading pre-gig drinks on a Saturday night to stay at home and watch the show instead. Well, for the past 14 years, we definitely haven’t had to.

The RocKwiz gang are back on buses, trains, planes and automobiles and coming to a theatre near you!  Julia, Brian, Dugald and the ever-expanding RocKwiz OrKestra are coming your way, revelling in the chaos and quizzery that is RocKwiz LIVE!

If you’ve seen a RocKwiz LIVE! show you’ll know what we mean. If you haven’t, buckle up for a fantastic night of musical and comedic treats from Australia’s premiere Rock and Roll Trivia show.

Australia’s premiere Rock n Roll Trivia show takes the pub trivia night and adds leather, leopard print and a whole lot of attitude in the most outrageous night of musical and comedic treats. At this point RocKwiz Live! is an institution, with sold-out concerts across the country and added extras of the annual RocKWiz’s Really Really Good Friday at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall, a fixture of the years event calendar, and their permanent position on the Delta Stage at Bluesfest being a major draw card for the annual Byron Bay blues and roots festival.

Why wouldn’t it be when the makeup includes Brain’s hilarious contestant selection process kicking of the hilarity as he scopes out audience members rock knowledge (and any additional singing and dancing skills they may have), before the show even starts! The top scoring members go on to be the contestants, seated alongside famous and up and coming musicians for a magical night of music and trivia. It all climaxes in a final score with duets and ensemble performances.

Of the return Julia Zemiro says, “Getting back on the road and touring around the country is what RocKwiz does best! If life is all getting a bit much, and you need to have a laugh and hear some fabulous music, come join us! We guarantee we’ll make you feel better.”

“So excited to be doing this big run of RocKwiz shows! ‘On The Road Again’, ‘Roadhouse Blues’, ‘Hit The Road Jack’, ‘Freeway Of Love’ … you know the tour bus will be rocking!” adds Brian Nankervis.

“There’s something very special about being on the road, playing beautiful theatres with a travelling company of artists, inviting audience members to be part of the action. On a RocKwiz tour, performing night after night, the shows develop and consolidate, but also twist and turn. We’re constantly refining, evaluating the shows in hotel rooms and airport lounges. Late night singalongs might be rehearsed the next afternoon and performed that night. There’s nothing quite like a RocKwiz show.

“It’s a thrill to travel around Australia with this show we love. See you in the foyer!”

The Victorian list includes Frankston Arts Centre, Costa Hall in Geelong, West Gippsland Arts Centre, Gippland Performing Arts Centre, Civic Theatre, Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo, Ballarat Civic Hall, Palais Theatre in St Kilda and Swan Hill Soundshell. The tour kicks off 8 October and concluded in Adelaide on Thursday 5 December.

Tickets to the outrageously fun concert quiz commence at 10am AEST, Friday 10 May via Presale tickets are available via the RocKwiz Kwizlist from Thursday 9 May at 10am AEST. Click here to register.
