It’s an unexpected collaboration, yet it makes so much sense. Two Aussie legends, each entering their own new career phase. Hot on the heels of his two sold out album launch shows, Guy Pearce will join forces with Powderfinger’s Darren Middleton for an upcoming ‘Broken / Translations’ double headline tour coming to Lizotte’s in Newcastle on the 19th of February 2015.
Former Powderfinger guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire, Darren Middleton has garnered acclaim for his solo album, Translations, playing on his melodic strength and taking fans on an intricate journey.Two weeks from today, Darren is also joining a host of big names in the Hunter Valley for the Jack Newton Celebrity Classic.
“I’ve been a fan of Darren’s for 20 years. He’s a wonderful storyteller and the idea of getting to perform together is a thrill for me. He’s a great songwriter and as we know, helped take Powderfinger to the top of the charts many times over. Apart from getting to sing together, I know we’ll also have a good laugh.” says Guy.
Guy and Darren will share the stage in what promises to be an unforgettable show, performing songs from each other’s repertoire, with a full backing band. Find out more about the show by visiting the venue’s website.
