Roundhouse Entertainment regrets to announce that DIED PRETTY will not be performing at the upcoming a day on the green events with BRYAN FERRY.
Died Pretty management sadly advises that due to ill health, all upcoming Died Pretty shows have been cancelled. Singer Ron Peno has been diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and will be commencing immediate treatment. Please direct any messages of support via the band's Facebook page and they will be forwarded to Ron. We're sure everyone will be hoping for Ron's speedy recovery.
Roundhouse Entertainment Director Michael Newton added: “Every member of the a day on the green team was very sorry to hear this news. We all love Ronnie. He’s a charming man and an immense talent, as anyone who has seen him live will know. We’ll do whatever we can to support him in this battle, and we look forward to having him on another a day on the green bill when he’s back in action.”
Joining BRYAN FERRY, I’M TALKING and MODELS at the a day on the green events will be STEPHEN CUMMINGS.
STEPHEN CUMMINGS has a special place in the history of a day on the green – he was part of our very first show, in 2001. So we’re very pleased to welcome Stephen back to the a day on the green stage. His return coincides with the release of his 20th solo album, Prisoner of Love (“sits comfortably alongside his early solo classics, Lovetown, A New Kind Of Blue and This Wonderful Life” – STACK). Since his early days fronting The Sports, Stephen has been hailed as one of Australia’s finest singers and songwriters. “He is easily one of our greatest storytellers, capable of creating lives in miniature,” Bernard Zuel wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald, while RocKwiz’s Brian Nankervis has called his solo albums “timeless, moving, funny and utterly unique”. Stephen is also releasing the 50-track solo anthology, A Life Is A Life in April.
Bryan Ferry’s Australian tour kicks off next week in Perth at Kings Park and Botanic Garden, followed by a day on the green events at Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley, VIC and Sirromet Wines, Mount Cotton, QLD, as well as indoor shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
BRYAN FERRY’S set list draws on material from his whole career, including classics from Roxy Music like Love Is The Drug, Avalon, More Than This, Virginia Plain and Jealous Guy, as well as much-loved solo hits like Let’s Stick Together, Slave To Love and Don’t Stop The Dance.
In a reunion that’s been 30 years in the making, '80s Melbourne funk/pop band I’M TALKING will be reuniting especially for these a day on the green shows. I’m Talking features original members, Robert Goodge, Kate Ceberano, Zan Abeyratne, Barbara Hogarth and Stephen Charlesworth.
Rounding out this great bill will be MODELS and STEPHEN CUMMINGS.
BRYAN FERRY, I’M TALKING, MODELS and STEPHEN CUMMINGS. Decades of hits and undeniable style. A show not to be missed.
