Boom Crash Opera with Sean Kelly (The Models) : NOV 17
Boom Crash Opera formed in Melbourne in 1985. Initially based around the songwriting partnership of Richard Pleasance (guitar/bass/vocals 1985 - 1992) and Peter Farnan (guitar/bass/keys/vocals), Boom Crash Opera is now comprised of Dale Ryder (lead vocals), Peter 'Maz' Maslen (drums/vocals), Greg O'Connor (keyboards/guitar) and Ian Tilley (bass/vocals 1992- present). Boom Crash Opera have always had a transparent recognition of their influences and none greater than Models front man Sean Kelly, a man they have many times, attempted to musically clone.
Sean Kelly is simply Australian Rock & Roll royalty. Fittingly, in 2010, Sean was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame for his work with Models, Absent Friends and The Dukes. For fans of Boom Crash Opera and Sean Kelly ‐ a night at the picturesque Quarry Amphitheatre filled with entertaining and influential Australian music is not to be missed. Their 25th anniversary tour, 25 Years, is a two hour show with both acoustic and electric performances by Boom Crash Opera featuring all their favourite songs including: Onion Skin, Dancing in the Storm, Great Wall, The Best Thing, and Hands Up in the Air. Not to mention with a few classic album gems thrown in the mix, as well as an inspirational set from their musical mentor Sean Kelly.
