Rob Potts Entertainment Edge, Chugg Entertainment and Foxtel’s Country Music Channel (CMC) announce today that CMC Rocks North QLD will move from Reid Park to the Townsville Entertainment and Convention Centre.
All current CMC Rocks North QLD Festival ticket purchasers are still valid. For exchange and refund information, go tohttp://www.cmcrocks.com/cmc-rocks-north-queeensland-moves-venue/
CMC Rocks North QLD in Concert will continue to be headlined by USA outlaw singer-songwriter Gary Allan (USA), along with fellow international artists The Mavericks (USA) and Blackjack Billy (USA). They will be joined by Australian hitmaker Morgan Evans, plus Nth QLD local Karrie Hayward will perform in the foyer during artist changeovers.
GARY ALLAN (USA) has been mixing honky-tonk bravado and grainy isolation across nine acclaimed studio albums, all the while mining the emotional turf that fuels a life well-lived: the joys of parenting, the heartache of personal loss, the testosterone of disagreement and the unpredictability of love. He has registered five #1 singles – “Man To Man,” “Tough Little Boys,” “Nothing On But The Radio”, “Watching Airplanes” and “Every Storm Runs out of Rain” – in addition to such trademark hits as the lonely “Best I Ever Had” and the swaggering “Right Where I Need To Be.”
Joining GARY ALLAN on the concert line-up is THE MAVERICKS (USA) who touched down in Australia for the first time last year. It was as if a dam had burst, with crowds whipped into a frenzy at their festival show and their sold-out standing-room-only Sydney club date. It had been a long wait for fans of the country-steeped garage band with the Cuban American lead singer, that emerged from Miami in 1989.
drawing on a dozen genres to create a sound all of their own.
BLACKJACK BILLY (USA) are the definition of fun - a group whose on-stage alchemy is impossible to describe in words but makes audiences holler and dance in delight. Their breakthrough signature hit, “Booze Cruise”, raced up the charts when it was released last year - an indelibly catchy ode to summer living. They were the surprise breakout hit at this year’s CMC Rocks the Hunter festival, where they made their Australian debut, as the crowds were won over by their energetic on-stage antics and commanding presence. Their debut EP, “Get Some”, immediately shot to #1 the following week.
“It’s a great spread of major league stars like Gary Allan and The Mavericks and the newer stars like Blackjack Billy” says promoter Michael Chugg.
