Country stars Adam Brand and Beccy Cole will take to the stage at Eastbank Centre on Friday.February 21, 2013 11:11am
Two of Australia’s best-known and most prolific musicians will take to the stage in Shepparton tomorrow night for a three-hour ‘‘action-packed’’ show.
Country music stars Adam Brand and Beccy Cole are bringing their I Was Here tour to the Eastbank centre where they will be supported by up-andcomers Travis Collins and Matt Cornell.
Brand said he was excited to be performing with such a ‘‘good combination’’ of musicians.
‘‘(Beccy and I) have got quite a long history of touring together, she’s fantastic; Travis Collins is an absolute superstar, he’s on the climb and about to explode I think; and Matt Cornell, he comes from a bit of a different world playing with Shannon Noll and the Baby Animals, but he’s a great songwriter and performer.
‘‘It’s just a bunch of really great people, we’re all enjoying it having a good time.
‘‘You find what happens is that the fun that you’re having on the road and off-stage actually spills over into the performances. If everyone’s having a great time during the day, we’re all pumped. It makes the shows better.’’
Brand, who has an impressive list of prestigious music awards to his name, will be playing tracks from his latest album There Will Be Love.
It’s been two years in the making and he’s looking forward to taking his new music to the people.
‘‘When you’ve been working on something for so long and you finally get to unveil it, it’s a really good feeling,’’ Brand said.
‘‘It’s always a little nerve-wracking, but the reaction has been really great.
‘‘Every day is a blast — the thing I’m not looking forward to is it ending.’’
Adam Brand and Beccy Cole, I Was Here, is at 7.30 pm on Friday, February 22 at the Eastbank Centre, 70 Welsford St, Shepparton.
Tickets for members are $41.90 for adults and $37.40 for concession holders, and for non-members $49.90 for adults, and $44.90 for concession holders and students under 15.
