Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters

We heard you Adelaide! Following incredible interest in other cities Bluesfest Touring is pleased to announce Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters will be performing for you!

Marking 50 years since Led Zeppelin’s first self-titled album was released, the legendary singer returns to Australia along with his band, The Sensational Space Shifters and a new album ‘Carry Fire’.  It promises to be a powerful show; not to be missed by any true fan.

 

First established in 2002, The Sensational Space Shifters are Plant’s latest project; a loose band “inspired by the roots music of Mississippi, Appalachia, Gambia, Bristol and the foothills of Wolverhampton and drawing on influences collected in a lifetime of meander and journeying.”

 

Plant talks about creating new work after 50 years in the music industry:

 

“It’s about intention, I respect and relish my past works but each time I feel the lure and incentive to create new work. I must mix old with new. Consequently, the whole impetus of the band has moved on its axis somewhat, the new sound and different space giving way to exciting and dramatic landscapes of mood, melody and instrumentation”.

 

Each night on this tour of Australia, Robert Plant will take audiences on an incredible journey through his unique musical life. These shows will include rare performances of some Led Zeppelin hits in intimate spaces that will allow fans to experience the full power of his epic vocal prowess.

Outdoor Cinema – Priscilla, Queen of the Desert

The National Motor Museum will present another of its popular Outdoor Cinema screenings of classic Australian road movies in January, with one of the best feel-good Aussie comedies of the 90s, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. On the scenic grounds of the Museum on Australia Day-Eve, film-lovers can recline on picnic rugs underneath the stars, listen to an all Aussie playlist prior to the film, tuck into their picnic hampers or sample the local produce BBQ. Come sunset, they kick back and enjoy the much-loved road-movie classic.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert follows two drag queens and a transgender woman on their epic journey across the Australian Outback as they travel in a tour bus named ‘Priscilla’ from Sydney to Alice Springs performing their own unique style of cabaret. Featuring exquisite cinematography of the Australian outback, the film features Hugo Weaving, Guy Pearce, and Terence Stamp.

In addition to the film screening, a showcase of Australia’s finest unique vintage caravans will be on the grounds accompanied by their owners who will open their doors on these classic kitsch creations for movie-goers to take a look inside their retro gems.

The Museum is encouraging people to bring blankets and rugs, or low lying chairs, and to camp out on the grounds and enjoy the ambience of this unique setting. They will also be putting on an Aussie BBQ, but picnic baskets and BYO alcohol and drinks are most welcome.

The movie ticket includes Museum entry and a rare glimpse of the collection at twilight.

2018 SPEAKER: PAUL VASILEFF, YOUNG AUSTRALIAN OF THE YEAR 2017

With a passion for fashion, Paul Vasileff stitched his first dress at the tender age of 11, created countless formal dresses for friends in his teens and was just 16 when he showcased his first fashion collection. The young boy who learnt to sew with his grandmother graduated from Milan’s prestigious Europeo Istituto di Design and is now the brains behind couture label Paolo Sebastian.

At just 26, this down-to-earth designer operates a growing business in Adelaide with 15 staff. Paul’s luxurious hand-made creations are favourites on the world’s runways, are stocked in boutiques in New York and around the globe, and are worn by celebrities walking the red carpet at the Oscars and Logies.

Determined to create a local brand, all Paul’s designs are stitched in South Australia, and he has proven that there’s no need to relocate to succeed in the high-octane world of fashion. Paul’s recipe for success? Perfectionism, stubbornness and an enduring belief that there’s no place like home.
