John Paul Young – The Vanda and Young Songbook
8pm Friday 22 November, Woden
John Paul Young and The Allstar Band – The Vanda & Young Songbook is a concert celebrating this incredible songwriting duo’s creations – the songs that gave Australia it’s unique soundtrack during the 60s, 70s, and the 80s, and still to this day.
With hits written for The Easybeats, AC/DC, Grace Jones, and Ted Mulry, Vanda & Young’s own studio unit Flash and the Pan, to the wealth of hits written for John Paul Young, this show will have you up and dancin’ like it’s 1979.
John Paul Young and The Allstar Band will travel through the decades of mega hits and John’s own behind the scenes stories about the songs and their making, at a time when music was king.
John Paul Young is one of the most iconic artist in Australian music’s history, with over 4 million in worldwide album sales and numerous awards which garnered him an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2009. In 2012, John received an Order of Australia (OAM) for his services to charity and the music industry.
The Allstar Band features two of the original members in Warren “The Pig” Morgan who cut his teeth in the original Aztecs and Ronnie “Rockwell T James” Peel, of The Missing Links and La De Das fame. Both have been with John since the beginning and have been joined over the years by Greg Plimmer, Juan Gonzalez and Michael “China” Walker, and this outfit has been together since the early 80s.
