Melbourne Zoo, VIC
The enigmatic Peter Garrett is bringing his brand new outfit Peter Garrett & the Alter Egos to the Zoo Twilights Summer Concert Series in a rare co-headling performance with Kev Carmody.
As the fearless frontman who led Midnight Oil through a career spanning 30 years and 12 Top 10 albums, Peter Garrett's all-star band features Midnight Oil's Martin Rotsey on guitar, Peter Luscombe (RocKwiz, Paul Kelly) on drums, Mark Wilson from Jet on bass, and Rosa Morgan (Red Ghost) on keyboards. Together they will perform songs from Peter Garrett's recently released solo album A Version of Now , which was penned as he looked back on a remarkable journey though music, activism, politics and family for his 2015 memoir, Big Blue Sky. On its release, the Top 3 charting collection was warmly received by critics and fans alike, with many publications, including Rolling Stone and The Australian, awarding it four star reviews.
Joining Peter Garrett for this performance under the stars is one of Australia's pre-eminent singer-songwriters, storytellers and ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, Kev Carmody. Born of Aboriginal and Irish heritage, Kev Carmody's songbook has been collected over forty years; politically charged and driven by the history of his peoples' struggles and set on the land he loves. Join these two iconic singers for a night of soulful performances set amongst the stunning Melbourne Zoo lawns.
Peter Garrett & the Alter Egos + Kev Carmody are proud to be performing in support of Zoos Victoria's fight against wildlife extinction.
