Following the highly acclaimed 13th series of RocKwiz (RocKwiz Salutes The Decades) Australia’s favourite television music trivia show is once again going on the road. The Rockwiz Live! Salutes The Aria Hall Of Fame show will roll into the Civic Theatre on Saturday October 3rd.
Since 1988, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) has inducted 73 artists into its annual ARIA Hall of Fame, honouring performers, songwriters and others who have made a lasting impact on music culture in Australia. RocKwiz maintains a close relationship with ARIA and has always featured Hall Of Fame artists and drawn from their repertoire over its ten-year history. In 2010, RocKwiz produced the broadcast of the legendary ARIA Hall Of Fame awards night.
The combination of RocKwiz and the ARIA Hall Of Fame is a match made in rock and roll heaven!
These amazing, fun-filled live shows, in theatres and concert halls around Australia, will feature some of your favourite Australian music legends performing their hits, alongside the brightest and best contemporary artists interpreting genuine Australian classics. As usual, four contestants will be drawn from the audience on the night to sit alongside rock and roll royalty and participate in the madness and mayhem that is RocKwiz Live!
Queen Of The Kwiz, Julia Zemiro, and Rock Brain, Brian Nankervis, will ask the curly questions, the Human Scoreboard, Dugald, will manage the stage and hold up scores and the original RocKwiz Orkestra – James Black, Peter Luscombe and Mark Ferrie, will be joined by Even guitarist Ashley Naylor and the sensational Vika and Linda Bull.
These live shows won’t be filmed; so being there, front and centre, is the only way to experience the special magic of a RocKwiz Live! performance … bigger, bolder and looser than the television episodes. As Brian says, “We stretch out and improvise more in the live shows, taking risks and experimenting without worrying about cameras and lights. It’s liberating and often produces delightfully unexpected results.”
