Ross “The Boss” Wilson will roll into Lizotte’s in Lambton this Sunday, July 31 for an intimate show that will look back over the Aussie artist’s 45 year career. Here’s 5 reasons we’ll be in the Audience this Sunday.
Eagle Rock has been included in the National Film and Sound Archive ‘Sounds of Australia Collection and for good reason. Anyone who’s been in a pub when this song is played knows all too well how important this song is in the Australian zeitgeist. But for the love of god boys, when Ross plays it at Lizotte’s this Sunday, can we please keep our pants on!
Hall Of Fame x 2
Ross has twice been inducted in to the ARIA Hall of Fame. The first time was in 1989 for his solo work and songwriting, and again in 2006 for his time with one of Australia’s favourite bands, Daddy Cool.
He’s still writing hits
The last 3 singles from Ross’ new album ‘I Come In Peace’ have been added to playlists at over 50 commercial stations nationally and the title track is released as a single accompanied by a hot new video.
His shows are award winning
Ross again sets new records for a performer of his generation with his ‘5 Decades of Cool’ concert series was nominated for the 2010 Helpmann Award for ‘Best Contemporary Australian Concert’.
Touch of paradise
Often disregarded as a naff John Farnham song, Touch of paradise, when delivered by the man who wrote it, really gets you right in the feels. We’d be in the audience if this was the only song he was performing, it’s just that good!
