ICEHOUSE back for another season of
exciting performances at The Palms
“We had such a great time last January when we played at The Palms for several nights” enthuses ICEHOUSE frontman Iva Davies “The band was in great form after performing several shows throughout the year, the audiences were incredibly passionate and enthusiastic about our music and the venue was a really great way to present a more intimate show than we’d been playing elsewhere. And now they’ve asked us to come back to do it again, we couldn’t be happier!”
ICEHOUSE’s catalogue of anthems, hits, musical experimentation and high level of musical dedication has made them a household name in Australia with an amazing eight top 10 albums and over thirty Top 40 singles including We Can Get Together, Electric Blue, Hey Little Girl, Crazy and the alternative national anthem to Australians everywhere, Great Southern Land. They have sales records equivalent to platinum albums locally and internationally.
The re-releases of all the albums from the band’s catalogue of recordings plus the platinum-selling White Heat: 30 Hits compilation prompted Davies to return the band to live performances after a 16 year hiatus. The results in 2011 and 2012 were outstanding – sell-out shows, screaming fans, encore performances and a revitalized audience for this iconic band.
In December 2012 ICEHOUSE sold out Melbourne’s Hamer Hall and were then invited to perform at the intimate The Palms Theatre at the Crown entertainment complex in Melbourne in January 2013. All these shows sold out well in advance.
So now The Palms has invited them back again in what may well become an annual event and as Davies’ comments above attest, the band are looking forward to it.
And what will the fans see that is different? To that Davies laughs and says, “We have such a lot of songs to choose from that we can move them around so that each show can be different. Our crew are preparing new visuals and we’ve got a few musical surprises to throw in to celebrate the 2014 Summer. It will be a lot of fun and we look forward to seeing everyone there”.
Iva is also pleased that Michael Paynter will be presenting a special guest performance with his own band before joining ICEHOUSE on stage for the rest of what will be a series of very special evenings.
