Billy Bragg

^^

When: Tuesday 12th May - Thursday 14th May
Where: Metro Theatre

Handsome Tours is thrilled to announce that Billy Bragg will be returning for a very special tour entitled “One Step Forward. Two Steps Back.” In each city Bragg will perform three unique shows on consecutive nights.

NIGHT 1
Career Spanning Billy Bragg Set

NIGHT 2
Songs From First Three Albums
'Life's a Riot with Spy Vs Spy' (1983)
'Brewing Up with Billy Bragg (1984)'
'Talking with the Taxman about Poetry' (1986)

NIGHT 3
Songs From Second Three Albums
'Workers Playtime' (1988)
'Don't Try This at Home' (1991)
'William Bloke' (1996)

The first night's performance will feature Bragg's current set, which ranges across his 35 year career. The second will see Bragg perform songs from his first three albums: his punk rock debut Life's a Riot with Spy Vs Spy (1983), its similarly raw follow-up Brewing Up with Billy Bragg (1984) and Talking with the Taxman about Poetry (1986). The third performance will see Bragg perform songs from his second three albums: the positively jangled Workers Playtime (1988), the pop classic Don't Try This at Home (1991) and the back-to-basics William Bloke (1996). Says Billy: “After more than three decades of travelling around the world in a van, or spending all day flying vast distances to play a gig, I'm looking forward to having some time to explore cities that I usually only get to see between the soundcheck and the show. And this three night stand format is a way of keeping things interesting, both for me and the audience. I tried it out in Auckland recently and had a lot of fun revisiting my back pages.” Billy Bragg has been a fearless recording artist, tireless live performer and peerless political campaigner for over 35 years. Politicised by a Tory government operating without love or justice, this previously adrift young man from Barking, whose failure at national exams had reduced his career opportunities to two, eventually bought himself out of the British Army in 1981 ('the best £175 I ever spent'), determined to make a living out of song. Don't miss the orator, entertainer, rabble-rouser, negotiator, pamphleteer, the fabled 'Bard of Barking', Billy Bragg, across three extraordinary evenings.

Belshazzar's Feast

^^

When: Sunday 28th June
Where: The Concourse, Chatswood

PRE-CONCERT TALK - Linda Foulsham will give a pre-concert talk in the upper foyer at 1pm. SYNOPSES - Belshazzar’s Feast tells the dramatic story of the Israelites’ Babylonian captivity and enslavement, the wealth of the city-state and of King Belshazzar’s great feast at which the King drinks from sacred vessels, stolen from Jerusalem’s First Temple. This sacrilege heralds a clap of thunder and God’s hand, writing in Hebrew: “You have been weighed in the balance and found wanting.” Belshazzar is killed, the Israelites are freed and the city is destroyed. The music is equally dramatic with wild extremes. The work involves a variety of moods from the delicate to the cataclysmic, a full orchestra with massed brass, a battery of percussion, some jazz rhythms, a baritone soloist and large choir. Chichester Psalms Each of the three choral movements centres around one complete psalm with excerpts from another. The work is jazzy and contemporary, Bernstein describing it as “popular in feeling” with “an old-fashioned sweetness along with its more violent moments”. Hebrew text combines with Christian choral tradition in a plea for reconciliation and unity.
