There’s something special about every Live At The Foreshore lineup! And it’s happening again at Camp Shortland in Newcastle on Saturday 16 March.
Since first presenting Live At The Foreshore back in 2015, we’ve been collecting special moments from the festival. Moments that will often never be repeated again, moments that make memories for a lifetime…
So, in no particular order, here’s 5 unforgettable Live At The Foreshore moments…
You’re a Monster. Nar, you’re a Monster!
An Oz Rock Supergroup featuring the Grant Walmsley “Freebird” & Craig “Rosie” Rosevear (The Screaming Jets) Rose Tattoo guitarist Dai Pritchard, & Faceplant”s Paul Coxon and the Newcastle’s very own Lady of Rock Holly Jane Wilson opened Live At The Foreshore 2015 with a ripping performance of The Screaming Jets classic “Come On”. It set the scene for what ended up being one hell of a walk down memory lane and the festival progressed into the afternoon and early evening.
You can get your local music fix at this year’s festival when the mighty DV8 open the main stage.
Adam Thompson gets hands-on with the crowd
You can never be sure of what you’re in store for when Adam Thompson of Chocolate Starfish jumps on stage. The enigmatic performer didn’t disappoint in 2016 when he leapt from the stage to get all hands on with the crowd during the band’s performance of Carly Simon’s 1972 song, You’re So Vain which the Chocolate Starfish had a top 10 hit with back in 1993.
That Lyn Bowtell & Shannon Noll duet
Shannon Noll released a version of the Peter Gabriel / Kate Bush song Don’t Give Up as a charity single in 2006 with Natalie Bassingthwaighte. But we have to say that the powerful yet delicate duet Shannon sang with Lyn Bowtell during 2015’s Live At The Foreshore left it for dead. Truly one of the best festival moments we’ve ever witnessed.
The Evie Encore
What do you get when you cross Ross THE BOSS Wilson and his band with everyone else on the bill at Live At The Foreshore 2016? The answer is Evie… Parts 1, 2 & 3! Those that left early to catch the 8 o’clock train were kicking themselves when footage of this hit social media moments after the final chord was played. It’s not often you get moments like this at a festival.
Moving Pictures play Never
Moving Pictures never play their song Never. And for good reason too. In an interview in 2014, frontman Alex Smith revealed that the band was never paid for the song’s use in the film:
“We never got paid the first time round… we were just the lowest part of the food chain.
Gobbled up by companies and people that suddenly stopped existing when we asked where our money was… the things you get talked into doing!
Anyway, we got to record at Sound City and The Record Plant, but a couple of bucks would have been nice. Hence, we ‘Never’ play the song.”
So you can imagine our surprise when the band launched into the song during their 2015 Live At The Foreshore festival slot.
And to top it off… Alex Smith got his shirt off. Hold yourself back ladies…
