DEAN LEWIS

“Up until now, it had been two-and-a-half years since I toured with a proper band and I can’t wait to finally perform for my fans all around Australia once again,” Dean Lewis says. “I love to connect with my fans in person and many of my new songs haven’t even been performed live for my homeland fans yet! I find my songs work best when I get personal, when I write from my own experience, and it’s actually through performing them live that a song’s purpose becomes fully realised – I get to look at all your faces to make sure I’ve done my job, writing songs that move people and worm their way into your hearts.” “Live streaming events definitely served their purpose, but I’m so grateful to have been able to return to touring and living out my dream night after night – I will never take these precious moments for granted again. Hearing my lyrics sung back at me just never gets old, so don’t be shy! Let’s all come together and soak up the magic of communal live music experiences now that they’re a thing again. See you later this year!” Christo Van Egmond, TEG VAN EGMOND’s Managing Director, says, “We’re thrilled to announce Dean Lewis will tour Australia. You can’t achieve Dean’s level of success by accident – he’s one of the world’s finest songwriters and performers. His recent shows in the U.S. have been rapturously received so we can’t wait for Australian audiences to see what Dean has in store. You definitely don’t want to miss this opportunity to see Dean Lewis live.” Only a handful of artists are fortunate enough to achieve both critical acclaim and commercial success off the back of a debut single release. Dean Lewis is part of this exclusive club thanks to his global smash hit ‘Waves’ (2016), which landed key syncs in some hugely popular American TV series including ‘Suits’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Riverdale’ and the ‘Magnum P.I’ remake. ‘Be Alright’ (2018), Dean’s follow-up single, made an even bigger impact, going Platinum+ in 22 countries and topping the ARIA Singles Chart for five weeks! Dean has sold 3.6M+ albums and EPs worldwide and his music has attracted 7+ billion streams to date. He was welcomed into the Spotify Billions club when ‘Be Alright’ surpassed 1 billion streams and has over 1.1M YouTube and 1.3M Tik Tok followers. His most recent single ‘Falling Up’ is ARIA Gold-certified with 68M+ global streams. Lewis was an Apple Up Next artist in 2019 and played over 200 shows that year, including sold-out U.S. and Australian tours plus many shows and festival slots around Europe. That same year, Dean collaborated with Dutch superstar DJ/producer Martin Garrix on their hit single ‘Used To Love’ and kicked another bucketlist career goal when he performed at the AFL Grand Final. Off the back of just one album release – 2019’s chart-topping, multiple-award-winning, multiple-Platinum-certified ‘A Place We Knew’ – Dean has cultivated and captivated a huge global fanbase. After ‘Half A Man’ was performed by a contestant on X Factor in Denmark earlier this year, this track from his debut album received a second life when it flew to the top of the Danish charts. After Dean performed his latest single ‘Hurtless’ on X Factor Denmark’s finale, this impassioned breakup song climbed to #8 on the Danish charts and also topped the Swedish Heatseeker chart. “‘Hurtless’ has immediately become one of those special, connecting moments in the live shows,” Dean said during an interview. His first single release of 2022, ‘Hurtless’ was preceded by 2021’s ‘Looks Like Me’ and ‘Falling Up’ and continues to receive high rotation on radio stations globally. Make sure you’re in the audience to help Dean celebrate his endless, ongoing list of global achievements. It doesn’t get much better than watching one of Australia’s finest voices bringing his universally relatable songs, which regularly flood our playlists, to life. Supporting Dean Lewis on his Australian tour is Blake Rose, who Dean personally selected after hearing his music on Spotify. Hailing from Perth, Blake has had a keen musical curiosity for as long as he can remember. One of the first instruments he ever picked up was the didgeridoo, followed by a guitar which he taught himself to play at age 12. It was a 3-month-long camping trip around Australia with his family that saw Rose really begin to develop into the songwriter he is today. As they drove from campsite to campsite, teenage Rose started to write down his own songs in the back of his family car. On the return home, he began to experiment with GarageBand and Pro Tools, falling in love with the idea of creating a song from start to finish. Taking to the streets of Perth to busk as a teenager, he quickly discovered his love for live performance. Blake Rose brings a depth to his music that is wise beyond his years. Marked by profound and picturesque lyricism, his songs are vibrant, powerful, and deeply authentic.

Chocolate Starfish Bat Out Of Hell

Bat Out of Hell – the album and show that kicked off Chocolate Starfish’s acclaimed Classic Album Series – is back in 2023 by overwhelming demand, after reigniting the stage at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre in 2022. The exhilarating show features the full Bat Out of Hell album, plus classic songs by the master himself, Jim Steinman, then capped off with Chocolate Starfish hits. Australia’s most entertaining rock band continues to live up to its reputation with this spectacular selection of songs honoured in true Starfish style. Just as they put their own slant on Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, the ‘Fish approach each song with their trademark intensity and revelry that elevates the experience well beyond a tribute. With a nod to the original and a glint in their eyes, they imbue the songs with their signature flair and theatrics. Chocolate Starfish has enthralled audiences with the Classic Album Series since its inception in 2015 with Bat Out of Hell and the band are ‘all revved up’ to return to the Series’ roots. Lead singer Adam Thompson says that in revisiting the full album show, he hopes to share the impact the Bat Out of Hell album had on him with audiences. “The first time I heard Bat Out of Hell, I was 13 and had little musical influence outside a conservative regional radio station,” he recalls. “Bat Out of Hell songs and Meat Loaf’s voice transported me out of that country isolation and into a fantasy world of sonic ear candy I didn’t know existed. Soaring hook-laden melodies, and adjective-filled lyrics around life, death, girls, cars and motorbikes, was everything a trapped teenaged boy could imagine outside his small world. On top of that, each song was an epic of dynamic proportions, and it shaped the theatrical and dynamic way I looked at song writing and performance ever since.” Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly established themselves as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, original hit “Mountain” and perennial favourite “Four Letter Word”. They wholeheartedly earned their reputation as one of Australia’s best live bands of the 90s, boasting two Top 10 albums and six Top 50 singles, and received an Australian Music Award for ‘Most Popular Album’ at the 1994 Australian Music Awards. Twenty-nine years later, the band is living up to this reputation and then some as they continue to delight long-time fans and win over new ones. With a new album in tow and plenty of fuel in the tank, the ‘Fish show no signs of slowing down. The Bat Out of Hell Tour promises audiences what they know and love about a Chocolate Starfish show – pure, unadulterated entertainment…and, as always, a few surprise.

You can’t achieve Dean’s level of success by accident – he’s one of the world’s finest songwriters and performers. His recent shows in the U.S. have been rapturously received so we can’t wait for Australian audiences to see what Dean has in store. You definitely don’t want to miss this opportunity to see Dean Lewis live.” Only a handful of artists are fortunate enough to achieve both critical acclaim and commercial success off the back of a debut single release. Dean Lewis is part of this exclusive club thanks to his global smash hit ‘Waves’ (2016), which landed key syncs in some hugely popular American TV series including ‘Suits’, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’, ‘Riverdale’ and the ‘Magnum P.I’ remake. ‘Be Alright’ (2018), Dean’s follow-up single, made an even bigger impact, going Platinum+ in 22 countries and topping the ARIA Singles Chart for five weeks! Dean has sold 3.6M+ albums and EPs worldwide and his music has attracted 7+ billion streams to date. He was welcomed into the Spotify Billions club when ‘Be Alright’ surpassed 1 billion streams and has over 1.1M YouTube and 1.3M Tik Tok followers. His most recent single ‘Falling Up’ is ARIA Gold-certified with 68M+ global streams. Lewis was an Apple Up Next artist in 2019 and played over 200 shows that year, including sold-out U.S. and Australian tours plus many shows and festival slots around Europe. That same year, Dean collaborated with Dutch superstar DJ/producer Martin Garrix on their hit single ‘Used To Love’ and kicked another bucketlist career goal when he performed at the AFL Grand Final. Off the back of just one album release – 2019’s chart-topping, multiple-award-winning, multiple-Platinum-certified ‘A Place We Knew’ – Dean has cultivated and captivated a huge global fanbase. After ‘Half A Man’ was performed by a contestant on X Factor in Denmark earlier this year, this track from his debut album received a second life when it flew to the top of the Danish charts. After Dean performed his latest single ‘Hurtless’ on X Factor Denmark’s finale, this impassioned breakup song climbed to #8 on the Danish charts and also topped the Swedish Heatseeker chart. “‘Hurtless’ has immediately become one of those special, connecting moments in the live shows,” Dean said during an interview. His first single release of 2022, ‘Hurtless’ was preceded by 2021’s ‘Looks Like Me’ and ‘Falling Up’ and continues to receive high rotation on radio stations globally. Make sure you’re in the audience to help Dean celebrate his endless, ongoing list of global achievements. It doesn’t get much better than watching one of Australia’s finest voices bringing his universally relatable songs, which regularly flood our playlists, to life. Supporting Dean Lewis on his Australian tour is Blake Rose, who Dean personally selected after hearing his music on Spotify. Hailing from Perth, Blake has had a keen musical curiosity for as long as he can remember. One of the first instruments he ever picked up was the didgeridoo, followed by a guitar which he taught himself to play at age 12. It was a 3-month-long camping trip around Australia with his family that saw Rose really begin to develop into the songwriter he is today. As they drove from campsite to campsite, teenage Rose started to write down his own songs in the back of his family car. On the return home, he began to experiment with GarageBand and Pro Tools, falling in love with the idea of creating a song from start to finish. Taking to the streets of Perth to busk as a teenager, he quickly discovered his love for live performance. Blake Rose brings a depth to his music that is wise beyond his years. Marked by profound and picturesque lyricism, his songs are vibrant, powerful, and deeply authentic.

Chocolate Starfish Bat Out Of Hell

Bat Out of Hell – the album and show that kicked off Chocolate Starfish’s acclaimed Classic Album Series – is back in 2023 by overwhelming demand, after reigniting the stage at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre in 2022. The exhilarating show features the full Bat Out of Hell album, plus classic songs by the master himself, Jim Steinman, then capped off with Chocolate Starfish hits. Australia’s most entertaining rock band continues to live up to its reputation with this spectacular selection of songs honoured in true Starfish style. Just as they put their own slant on Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, the ‘Fish approach each song with their trademark intensity and revelry that elevates the experience well beyond a tribute. With a nod to the original and a glint in their eyes, they imbue the songs with their signature flair and theatrics. Chocolate Starfish has enthralled audiences with the Classic Album Series since its inception in 2015 with Bat Out of Hell and the band are ‘all revved up’ to return to the Series’ roots. Lead singer Adam Thompson says that in revisiting the full album show, he hopes to share the impact the Bat Out of Hell album had on him with audiences. “The first time I heard Bat Out of Hell, I was 13 and had little musical influence outside a conservative regional radio station,” he recalls. “Bat Out of Hell songs and Meat Loaf’s voice transported me out of that country isolation and into a fantasy world of sonic ear candy I didn’t know existed. Soaring hook-laden melodies, and adjective-filled lyrics around life, death, girls, cars and motorbikes, was everything a trapped teenaged boy could imagine outside his small world. On top of that, each song was an epic of dynamic proportions, and it shaped the theatrical and dynamic way I looked at song writing and performance ever since.” Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly established themselves as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, original hit “Mountain” and perennial favourite “Four Letter Word”. They wholeheartedly earned their reputation as one of Australia’s best live bands of the 90s, boasting two Top 10 albums and six Top 50 singles, and received an Australian Music Award for ‘Most Popular Album’ at the 1994 Australian Music Awards. Twenty-nine years later, the band is living up to this reputation and then some as they continue to delight long-time fans and win over new ones. With a new album in tow and plenty of fuel in the tank, the ‘Fish show no signs of slowing down. The Bat Out of Hell Tour promises audiences what they know and love about a Chocolate Starfish show – pure, unadulterated entertainment…and, as always, a few surprise.
