Show to rock the West again

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music - Laura Pond

WITH fond mem­o­ries of his last visit to Perth, RocKwiz co-host, writer and pro­ducer Brian Nankervis is look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing in Oc­to­ber for RocKwiz Live! Salutes the ARIA Hall of Fame.

“I’m cer­tainly look­ing for­ward to com­ing to the West again,” he said.

“I have very vivid mem­o­ries of the last time there; in fact, it was one of the high­lights of the tour.

“I’ve got friends who live in Cottes­loe and we played fris­bee and football on that beau­ti­ful grassed area near the town hall… we swam, we had lunch at Il Lido, we had a ta­ble ten­nis tour­na­ment and then went on to do prob­a­bly the best show of the whole tour.

“I think our first na­tional tour we did more shows in Perth than we did in any other city… we were bowled over by the re­sponse.”

Af­ter a suc­cess­ful 13th se­ries of RocKwiz on SBS, the team, in­clud­ing co-host Ju­lia Zemiro, is tak­ing it on the road for a spe­cial se­ries of live shows based on ARIA Hall of Fame in­ductees.

They in­clude artistes such as Dame Nel­lie Melba, Cold Chisel, Paul Kelly and Kylie Minogue.

“The shows tend to be a lit­tle more un­pre­dictable,” Nankervis said. “We tend to im­pro­vise a bit more, we know we can take some risks.”

It will fol­low the usual RocKwiz for­mat, with Nankervis prowl­ing the foyer prior for po­ten­tial rock brains to bat­tle it out on stage and a mix of es­tab­lished and emerg­ing artists as guests.
