ICEHOUSE, one of Australia’s most revered and beloved rock bands will return to the Sydney Opera House forecourt in December for a special summer concert in this iconic setting.
ICEHOUSE will be joined by Australian dance music luminaries, Sneaky Sound System and blues and soul artist, Karen Lee Andrews.
With a career spanning over 45 years, ICEHOUSE is one of Australia’s most iconic bands, transcending age groups with their hit songs, well-known and loved by audiences across generations, playing to sell-out, capacity audiences in Australia, New Zealand and throughout the World.
Formed by Iva Davies, the band’s frontman and musical creative force, ICEHOUSE went on to have an amazing 28 Platinum albums, eight Top 10 albums and over thirty Top 40 singles. ICEHOUSE’s unofficial Australian anthem, Great Southern Land, is 40 years old and the band will be on tour in 2022 and 2023 to celebrate the song that’s been the soundtrack to everything from discussions about Mabo and the soundtrack to the Australian cricket team walking on the field, to having a plane named after it.
Great Southern Land has been a part of almost every Australian’s summer soundtrack for the past 40 years and in 2014, it was inducted into the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia registry. It’s also been remixed several times, most notably, Bill Laswell’s The Great Southern Mix, clocking in at almost 16 minutes, and the Byrralku Dhangudha remix from 1994 which features Indigenous musicians playing and singing the chorus in their own language. Its message is as current and relevant today as it was when it first appeared.
