Wolf­mother to draw a crowd at Mag­nums

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

FOL­LOW­ING a string of sold out shows on the east coast of Aus­tralia, pop­u­lar rock band Wolf­mother is head­ing to Air­lie’s Mag­nums Ho­tel to show­case mind-melt­ing new ma­te­rial and rock out some of their clas­sics to­mor­row (Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 7).

Mag­nums man­ager Ja­son Hick­mott said this was likely to be a huge event.

“We are ex­pect­ing to sell out with over 600 peo­ple here,” he said.

“Ticket sales are the strong­est we have seen for a tour­ing act so far, [so] any­one want­ing to at­tend this one-time show is urged to pur­chase [as soon as pos­si­ble] to avoid dis­ap­point­ment.”

Since form­ing in 2000, Wolf­mother has risen from strength to strength, win­ning ARIA and Grammy awards.

The three-piece band has been com- pared to blues and hard rock legends like Led Zep­pelin and Black Sab­bath, as well as psy­che­delic rock groups such as Blue Cheer and Queens of the Stone Age.

List­ing in­flu­ences such as The Doors, ACDC and Jimi Hen­drix, front man An­drew Stock­dale has pre­vi­ously de­scribed the band's sound as a mix of the play­ful­ness of Earth Wind and Fire with the in­ten­sity of Black Flag.

For to­mor­row’s con­cert, Mr Hick­mott said all ar­eas of the ho­tel would be open in­clud­ing the VIP bar and crowd favourite ter­race area.

“Any­one at­tend­ing the show can ex­pect a night full of clas­sic rock an­thems and a lit­tle taste of their up­com­ing al­bum,” he said.

Tick­ets are on sale for a rock bot­tom price of $20 each.

“$20 to see one of Aus­tralia's big­gest bands – [you] can’t go wrong,” Mr Hick­mott said.

Doors open at 8pm and the night will kick off with a per­for­mance from a sup­port act.

Tick­ets are avail­able at Tick­et­mas­ter or from Mag­nums Ho­tel.

BIG NIGHT: Aussie rock­ers Wolf­mother are bring­ing their in­cred­i­ble tour to Mag­nums Ho­tel to­mor­row night.
