Diesel : MAR 16 (Sold out) & MAR 17 + 18 (On sale now!)
25 years ago singer-guitarist Mark Lizotte (aka Diesel) finalised the line up for his band at that time in Perth, Johnny Diesel and the Injectors. Within a matter of months they were on their way across the Nullabor, stunning audiences live and heading for a national top 3 album chart debut. The band eventually folded, the “Johnny” disappeared, and Diesel reemerged releasing a string of gold and platinum albums and earned a swag of ARIA Awards (including Best Male).
He boasts ten Top 10 albums and more than a dozen Top 20 singles. And after 25 years, just when we thought we knew him, Diesel produces an album that defies all preconceptions.To celebrate his alter ego’s silver jubilee, Diesel has cut 15 tracks for his brand new album ‘Under The Influence’ — an album dedicated to his musical heroes.
