Diesel dish­ing out 25 years of big hits

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

AUSSIE rock le­gend Diesel will be at the mercy of the au­di­ence when he takes to the stage with his trusty gui­tar at the Iron­bar tonight.

Diesel, who has over 25 years ex­pe­ri­ence in the mu­sic in­dus­try and a long list of cer­ti­fied hits in­clud­ing Crying Shame, Tip of my Tongue and Soul Re­vival, will let the au­di­ence choose his set list as he kicks off his lat­est tour with a onenight-only show in Port Dou­glas.

He said he was ner­vous about get­ting out of his com­fort zone but hoped his fans were creative with their re­quests.

‘‘I want peo­ple to pick the more ob­scure, favourites they had on records they wouldn’t nor­mally get to hear at a live show,’’ he said.

‘‘Th­ese type of tours re­ally gives me an in­di­ca­tion of what my fans like, which is cool.’’

He has also promised to belt out a few cov­ers of his favourite artists such as Neil Young and Jimi Hen­drix who have in­flu­enced him over the years.

Tick­ets are still avail­able at $30 each. For more in­for­ma­tion go to www.iron­bar­port­dou­glas.com.au or call 4099 4776.
