Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' - Performed by Smith & Jones.
Bathurst duo Smith & Jones, are joined by guitarist Matt Ferry, drummer Michael Carpenter (SYD) and bassist Charlie Lee (SYD) to perform Fleetwood Mac's 1977 Grammy Award winning, 13 times platinum masterpiece Rumours in full in the Royal Hall as part of The End Festival 2018. The album, which is 40 years old this year, includes the singles 'Don't Stop', 'Go Your Own Way', 'Dreams', 'The Chain' and 'You make Loving Fun'.
Jessica Hooper from Pitchfork puts it best; 'Upon its release in 1977, Rumours became the fastest selling LP of all time, moving 800,000 copies per week at its height. Its success made Fleetwood Mac a cultural phenomenon and also set a template for pop with a gleaming surface that has something complicated, desperate, and dark resonating underneath.'
Smith & Jones have been performing Rumours to sold out crowds over the past 3 years.

Christa Hughes in Neurotic Ladyland HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
Alice Terry is replacing Christa Hughes
Alice Terry sounds like she's had three husbands and killed them all. Since leaving her tiny, coastal home, Terry has been impressing her ever-growing audiences with her massive voice and beautiful songs. Her debut single Emotion, released July this year, went to number one on the iTunes blues charts within hours. The sold out launch that followed proved why Terry has been nicknamed 'Sydney's first lady of blues'.
Her spirited performances and clever writing have steadily gained recognition and support from audiences and peers alike. Supports include: Allen Stone; Beth Hart; St Paul & the Broken Bones; Thirsty Merc; Matt Corby; and The Waifs, and festival appearances at: Sydney Festival Main Stage; Woodford Folk; Narooma Blues and Rockabilly; and Thredbo Blues Festivals, just to name a few. According to Grammy nominee Beth Hart, Alice Terry is "The real deal".
She has the ability to effortlessly combine the best parts of blues, folk, jazz and country to create this music which is both sexy and heartbreaking at the same time. Her long-awaited debut album "The Fear of.." will be released in 2018.
"Alice Terry is an undeniable combination of old school chanteuse and the grit of Janis Joplin. Her songs are emotional without being cloying, and pair equal measures regret and lament, with cheek and sass. If the swoops and croons are anything to go by, Terry is a singer equally comfortable howling at the moon for the hell of it as she is walking the line of soul-wrenching honesty." - The Music
