Colin Hay Taking the Road Less Travelled

Colin Hay, familiar to millions as front-man, songwriter, and vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (Down Under, Overkill, Who Can it Be Now?), is currently touring with his latest solo album Next Year People (Compass Records). Catch Colin Hay onstage at Lizotte’s Newcastle for one show only on Sunday March 6th.

You may remember him accepting a Grammy award in 1983, as the lead singer, guitarist and principle songwriter of Men At Work? You may have seen and heard him play Overkill on Scrubs or listened to his 11 solo albums? Perhaps you were introduced to him through his song I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You on the soundtrack of Garden State, or watched him closing the Sydney Olympics with the timeless treasure Down Under?

However you came across Colin Hay – if you haven’t been to one of his live performances – you will still be surprised! For those yet to be initiated, Colin Hay's live performance is an astonishing, powerful journey, sometimes straight down the main road, sometimes following the twists and turns of the road less travelled.

Whether he is telling of his globe dominating romp with Men At Work, running concurrently with a runaway love affair with alcohol, Colin strips bare an amazing story, through the vagaries of the music industry, to the mess and glory of life in general, with exquisite comic timing and a heartfelt, wry sense of humour.

Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance. While his voice and visage are still familiar to millions, the past twenty years have found him quietly yet tenaciously re-introducing himself to new generations of fans.

Whether or not you have seen him before, you will be riveted by his insightful, brilliant wit, you may also shed a tear, and you will most certainly be more than entertained. For tickets visit www.newcastle.lizottes.com.au
