Hot on the heels of his two sold out album shows, Guy Pearce will join forces with Darren Middleton in a double headline tour stopping at Sunshine Coast Council’s Nambour Civic Centre on Friday, February 13, 2015 at 7:30pm.
It’s an unexpected collaboration, yet it makes so much sense.
Two Aussie legends, each entering their own new career phase, Pearce and Middleton are set to hit the road in early 2015.
Best known for his stellar film career, Pearce has recently launched his music career with the album, ‘Broken Bones’.
Former Powderfinger guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire Middleton has garnered acclaim for his solo album, Translations, playing on his melodic strength and taking fans on an intricate journey.
Pearce said he has been a fan of Darren Middleton for 20 years.
“He’s a wonderful storyteller and the idea of getting to perform together is a thrill for me. He’s a great songwriter and as we know, helped take Powderfinger to the top of the charts many times over. Apart from getting to sing together, I know we’ll also have a good laugh.”
Middleton said the idea of this tour developed from an early conversation between he and Pearce, and gave both an unexpected and interesting surprise.
“Having been a fan of Guy’s film work and remembering something he said in an interview years ago that framed my own drive for music perfectly – and then listening to his incredibly well constructed album, I'm really excited to be hitting the road for this unique musical adventure,” Middleton said.
The pair will share the stage in what promises to be an unforgettable show, performing songs from each other’s repertoire, with a full backing band.
The show kicks off a huge year of live music at Nambour Civic Centre with other acts such as Vance Joy and Adam Harvey hitting the stage throughout the year.
