FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHOCOLATE STARFISH KICKS ON IN PERTH AFTER SELL-OUT SHOWS
INXS’s KICK album proved to be such a hit in the Chocolate Starfish Classic Albums Series that the band is KICKing on in 2019 with another tour. After a spectacularly successful string of sold-out shows and packed houses, the ‘Fish will give fans one last KICK before cracking the next Classic Album. They KICK off in WA at the Northshore Tavern in Hillarys on Friday 14 September and The Charles Hotel North Perth on Saturday 15 September.
In 2018 the inaugural ‘KICK: INXS’ show at The Palms at Melbourne’s Crown Casino quickly sold out and spawned a flurry of demand and a multi-state tour.
With their powerhouse performances and magnetic stage presence, the ‘Fish are the perfect fit to bring this much-loved album to the stage. The band performs ‘KICK’ from start to finish – just like an album is meant to be experienced – honouring its revered tracks in true Chocolate Starfish style.
As always, the band gives audiences what they know and love about a Chocolate Starfish show – pure, unadulterated entertainment, with performances imbued with intensity and revelry…and, as always, a few surprises.
Why KICK? “It seemed a natural choice,” frontman Adam Thompson muses. “We wanted to showcase an Australian album that had – and still has – a massive impact, and ‘KICK’ ticks all those boxes. It’s an exciting honour to bring this to life in our own way.”
Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly secured themselves a space as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’, original hit ‘Mountain’ and perennial favourite ‘Four Letter Word’. They wholeheartedly earned their reputation as one of Australia’s best live bands of the 90s, boasting two Top 10 albums and six Top 50 singles.
Twenty-five years after the release of their first album, Chocolate Starfish continues to delight long-time fans and win over new ones. With a new album in tow, back-to-back Red Hot Summer Tours and a second ‘KICK’ tour in the works, the ‘Fish show no signs of slowing down.
