Kevin rocks on – and into town

Sunday Mail - - CONFIDENTIAL -

AUS­TRALIANS love noth­ing more than claim­ing the best things to come out of New Zealand – pavlova, flat whites, Phar Lap and, of course, Kevin Borich.

And while the clas­sic rocker might not be cut­ting quite the chis­eled fig­ure as shown in this amaz­ing pic from the ’70s, right, he’s still in the run­ning for the “most hand­some 70-year-old in rock and roll” award.

To cel­e­brate this birth­day mile­stone, along with the 40th an­niver­sary of his clas­sic solo de­but al­bum Cel­e­bra­tion, Borich is rolling into Ade­laide for one night at the Ger­man Club on Fri­day night. KB Call on 8206 2459 or drop me a line at matt.gilbert­son@news.com.au or twit­ter.com/mat­t_gilbert­son face­book.com/Tis­erEn­ter­tain­ment will be treat­ing Ade­laide to a full ca­reer ret­ro­spec­tive, with ma­te­rial dat­ing back to the leg­endary La De Das, plus his ex­ten­sive solo al­bum reper­toire and many live favourites.

With spe­cial guests Rockin’ Rob Ri­ley, Chris Fin­nen and Rob Pip­pan in tow (and per­haps a cou­ple of other sur­prises), the Cel­e­bra­tion tour will mark a ca­reer span­ning five decades and the wild ride that goes along with it. This is sure to be an un­miss­able night of de­fin­i­tive Aus­tralian rock’n’roll.

Borich’s last Ade­laide show sold out, so grab a ticket at Oztix.

WILD RIDE: Ev­er­green blues­man Kevin Borich will mark his five decades in the mu­sic busi­ness with a con­cert at the Ger­man Club on Fri­day night.
