HEY ADELAIDE - LESS THAN 2 WEEKS TO GO!
for The ROB E.G. BEHIND THE #1 HITS!! Show
I’m very excited about playing Adelaide for the first time in Decades! You can figure out the Maths: we were All Young Then! Hey listen BABY BOOMERS ROCK ADELAIDE:
WE WILL ROCK YOU!! Some Facebook Friends have asked what will I be playing? This is my “BEHIND THE #1 HITS” Show, so in that show everything we play has been a Number 1 Hit that I have performed, written, published, or produced for myself, or for such iconic artists such as Marcia Hines, Daddy Cool, Rick Springfield, Colleen Hewett, Air Supply, Tommy Emmanuel, Hush, and Andy Upton, along with some Top 10 Hits.
I will also be revealing secrets behind some of the Number 1 Singles and Albums I have produced, and since I was very lucky to have had over 30 of them, with 9 different Australian artists, we will be covering a lot of territory. Below, I will also let you know what I will be playing from the Rob E.G. and Robie Porter #1s & Top 10 Hits repertoire.
But, to start with, I am Very happy to welcome to the show 2 Very Special Guest Singers: Andy Upton, and Nanette van Ruiten, both from Adelaide. Many of you may know that I produced the #1 Hit with Andy: “STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE”, and this is Andy’s and my reunion after many years…so Andy will be singing “STOP!” for you, with some back-up vocals from Nanette and me. Andy will also be singing Rick Springfield’s monster World-wide #1: “JESSIE’S GIRL.” Also, Nanette will be singing some of my Gold Single #1 Hits with Marcia, and Colleen: “YOU”, and DREAMING MY DREAMS WITH YOU”, and with me: “I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF”.
I will also be singing, with Andy, Nanette and our Superstar Band members singing back-up (and Yes! with All of You singing along!)…The first Number 1 Hit that I made with Daddy Cool, which became “Australia’s Rock Anthem”, also voted “The Number 1 Australian Hit Record of All-Time”, and named “The Number 1 Hit of the Twentieth Century” (The Kent Report)…And, which was also the only record to be Number 1 for 17 weeks: “EAGLE ROCK!”…So Start Practising Now!!
I will be playing 3 of my #1 ROB E.G. Hits: “55 DAYS AT PEKING”, “JEZEBEL”, and
“SI SENOR”, as well as my first Top 10 Hit: “WHIPLASH”, and the steel guitar instrumental that started it all for me: “SLEEPWALK”. Plus, I will be singing my own first Top 10 Vocal Hit: “WHEN YOU’RE NOT NEAR”, and possibly one other.I am very grateful to the great Gary Burrows for playing with me, and for putting together such a line-up of Fantastic musicians: Rob Pippan, John Bywaters & Russell McCormick.
I look forward very much to seeing as many of you as possible, and to talking with you and taking photos with you after the show. I do urge you to get your tickets ASAP, as I am assured by my friend, the promoter of this show and founder of BBRA, Jim Slade, that this show will be a Sell-Out. So Jim asked me to remind you:
