9 February 2010 - Another Sell Out Season! Thankyou
Live at the Quarry is over for another year and we'd like to say thankyou to all who made it a sold out success!
Once again, the Quarry Amphitheatre was the place to be over summer. There's something special about this venue, which makes intimate shows with the country's finest artists even more spectacular!
From the beguiling and theatrical Sarah Blasko, to the legendary Tim Finn, followed by the swirling anthems of The Church and the soaring vocals of The Ten Tenors, each show of the series left us replete in musical bliss.
Thankyou for being a part of it and we will see you next time!

26 November 2009 - Live at the Quarry Update
Sarah Blasko cut the ribbon on the 2009/10 season of Live At The Quarry just two weeks ago over four sold out nights, where we marvelled at her colourful, chrysalis costumes and confetti!
After such a magnificent start, Tim Finn followed up by reminding everyone why we've adopted him as one of our own and exploring his amazing back catalogue with vastly different sets each night.
And next, we can't wait to experience The Church 'under the milky way', and hope you're one of the few lucky people who have tickets to these sold out gigs....
If you're yet to experience The Quarry and don't have tickets to a show as of yet, The Ten Tenors is your only chance for the remainder of the season. This summer, you need to spend at least one evening enjoying this ethereal venue!

2 November 2009 - the church | All Shows Sold Out!
Proving their place in Australian music history is as assured as ever, The Church have now sold out both their dates this December, Live At The Quarry. It follows another successful season at the Quarry, which has seen all Sarah Blasko’s dates sold out as well as The Ten Tenors and Tim Finn being well on their way, both with multiple nights sold out as well. Just like last season – where every Live At The Quarry event was a sell out – the Quarry is the West Australian venue to be at this summer!
The Church’s latest album continues to gain the classic Australian band a new audience all over again, both here and overseas. In their June 2009 5 star review of Untitled #23, Rolling Stone praised the band: “The Church, like Nick Cave, have never called it quits, instead continuing to evolve and experiment with music in a way that puts ‘cutting edge’ rock dinosaurs like U2 to shame,” even commenting that The Church displayed “studio-smarts that are seldom seen these days outside of Sigur Rós recordings.” Highly regarded one-stop critic shop metacritic.com currently has the album rated at 82/100, making it one of the year’s best received albums universally.
20 October 2009 - TIM FINN - Final Show Announced | It's only natural...
Former Split Enz and Crowded House member Tim Finn is proving the hottest ticket in town, with his first two nights on the 20th and 21st of November both now sold out.
With such high demand for Live at the Quarry shows, Mellen Events and Lloyd Events recently added a third date for The Ten Tenors and are happy to announce that a third and final show has also been added for Finn. Taking place at the picturesque Quarry Amphitheatre on Sunday 22 November, it‘s confirmed to be the last performance in Perth by Finn on his Anthology Tour, celebrating the release this month of his 2 CD anthology album, North, South, East, West.
North, South, East, West is all encompassing and career spanning, revisiting his days in legendary art/rock pioneers Split Enz, Crowded House and The Finn Brothers, as well as tapping into songs from his rich solo career. Of particular note are the wonderful re-recorded versions of ‘Weather With You’, ‘Stuff & Nonsense’ and ‘It’s Only Natural’.
