2008/2009 SEASON ANNOUNCED

Commencing November 4 2008 , The Quarry Amphitheatre, Reabold Hill, City Beach

Lloyd Events and Mellen Events proudly announce the Live At The Quarry follow-up series, in Perth's most intimate and scenic venue.

Live At The Quarry was first launched in February 2008, with an inaugural summer series comprising nine concerts in the Quarry Amphitheatre, a magnificent open air venue created from an abandoned quarry at Reabold Hill in City Beach, WA.

Following the initial success of Live At The Quarry, which saw Kate Miller-Heidke, Old Man River, James Morrison, Holly Throsby, The Black Sorrows and more play in the picturesque venue under the stars, Mellen Events and Lloyd Events have teamed together to bring you the 2008/2009 season.

Over the peak summer season at the Quarry Amphitheatre, the series will bring together Australia's finest performers with fresh local talent to provide the audience with an intimate experience that is quintessentially Western Australian.  Gourmet food, fine wine and even more tantalising refreshments are available to help event goers unwind on the terraced lawns prior to the performances and make the most of Perth's balmy summer evenings.

 

VENUE 

In 1986 Reabold Hill's abandoned quarry, which had not been used for eighty years, was re-opened as 'The Quarry Amphitheatre'. Surrounded by natural bush land, it offers panoramic views across the city to the Darling Range and provides an ideal setting for intimate concerts to small capacity audiences.

 

Here's a taste of what you can expect at Live At The Quarry 2008/2009: 

 

LIVE AT THE QUARRY 2008/2009 PREMIERE - PAUL KELLY  A-Z  

Paul Kelly performs his works alphabetically, without a single repeat over four nights!

Tuesday 4 - Friday 7 November 2008

Paul Kelly's A-Z shows consist of 100 songs in alphabetical order over four nights with no repeats. After performing these shows in Edinburgh and around Australia, he will be taking them to Perth for the first time.

Alone on stage with a guitar and a piano, he will work his way through his wide ranging catalogue, reinterpreting songs he's sung for years, re-claiming those covered by others and re-discovering lesser performed songs.  Each night his characters with their voices of heart, hurt and humour - angels, beggars, cheaters, drunks, ecstatics, fighters, gentlemen and heroines - will stalk your souls and dance on your hearts.

The Quarry Amphitheatre, Waldron Drive, City Beach WA.  Gates open 6pm.
