16 Lovers Lane - Queensland Performing Arts Centre 14-7-17

30 years after the release of their seminal album 3 members of the
Go-betweens line up that created it return to the stage to perform
it in full along with a few other Gobs songs.
Lindy Morrison Amanda Brown and John Willsteed joined on stage
with Dan Kelly, Danny Widdicombe and Luke Daniel Peacock and
a fantastic array of artists taking on the vocal roles
(Steve Kilbey (The Church), Mark Callaghan ( GANGgajang ),
Ron S Peno (Died Pretty), Katie and Tyrone Noonan (george),
Montaigne, Sam Cromack and Jen Boyce (Ball Park Music),
Tim Nelson and Zoe Davis (Cub Sport),
Sahara Beck and Kirin J Callinan.)
And what a night it was, brilliant in the musical department
of course along with amazing vocal performances
It was a moving, emotional heart felt performance
Steve Kilbys anecdotes were very cool, but the greatest joy
was to see the 3 band members receive the appreciation they
One of the highlights was Amanda singing the song the devils eye
But there was many great performances
The show paid tribute to the 2 great songwriters Grant and Robert
constantly and shows how very loved this band is in their home town
I regret not taking my camera but being in the 2nd row I
managed to get some shots on my phone
