Saturday Entertainment Guide 2019


9.45pm Headline – Jon Stevens

Jon Stevens is recognised as one of the most talented rock musicians to emerge from Australia in recent memory. He has had phenomenal success as a solo artist, knocking Michael Jackson off the top of the charts in Australia, and as the lead singer of major rock acts, Noiseworks, INXS and the Dead Daisies.  In 2016 he joined forces with legendary musician, songwriter and producer Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics) to record a new album, Starlight.

With his mojo fully intact, Stevens virtually stands alone in the music scene, with a raw vocal power that won him attention first as a teenager and now as a veteran singer and songwriter. Time has toughened his delivery while tapping into his emotional wellsprings more than ever before.

8.00pm Support – Kate Ceberano

Multi ARIA award winning artist, Kate Ceberano, has been in the business for over 35 years - writing and performing both jazz and pop music - with seven Platinum and seven Gold albums to her name.

Kate first came to prominence in the mid-80’s as a 15 year old sensation fronting pop funk band, I’m Talking. Five consecutive hit singles and a Platinum debut album, Bear Witness, led to a swag of awards including Best New Talent at the 1984 Countdown Awards, followed up by Best Female Artist in the '85 and '86 Countdown Awards. After launching her solo career, Kate took out Best Female Artist at the '88 and '89 ARIA awards with her triple Platinum album, Brave, nominated as ARIA Album of the Year.

In 1992, Kate hit the stage to perform the role of Mary in Jesus Christ Superstar. The show’s star-studded cast, which included John Farnham, toured nationally, performing over 80 arena shows - the album being the biggest hit of the year earning four times platinum status.

Ceberano has barely drawn breath since, racking up 25 albums over 35 years to be the most prolific Australian female recording artist of this era. In 2014, Ceberano became the first - and only - Australian woman to be inducted into the Australian Songwriters' Association (ASA) Hall of Fame.

2016 saw Kate on the Queen's Birthday Honours List, becoming a member of the Order of Australia for significant service to the performing arts and charitable organisations.

Kate is widely respected across multiple industries of film, television and music. In recent times, she has been celebrated in her three year tenure as Artistic Director of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, transforming it into one of the most successful festivals in the country. She is now co- directing the Live Love Life Festival with renowned artist, David Bromley.

Her work, her craft and her vision are now imbued in our collective DNA. Kate Ceberano is a bone fide national treasure, possessing one of the great voices of her generation. Long may she run.
