Australian hit machine Diesel when he brings his Sunset Suburbia Tour to The Baroque Room, Katoomba, for two exclusive shows in one night – Saturday 28 November – 6pm and 9pm.
Reserved seating and limited tickets in groups of 2 and 4 are available, to ensure a COVID-safe environment in the interest of public health and safety.
Diesel will perform one set for 90 mins at each show, showcasing new songs from the Sunset Suburbia album along with all his classic hits spanning a multi-platinum career.
Sunset Suburbia Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 follows last year’s Top 20 retrospective Diesel 30: a double- CD which featured 14 Top 40 hits, including Tip Of My Tongue, Come To Me and Soul Revival.
Diesel says: “Suburbia has always held a strange fascination for me. I remember designer cul de sacs strewn with shotgun shells in Chandler Arizona; little vignettes of skateboarding around closed service stations on weekends in Perth; some guy in the hot tub in his backyard where I’m riding my bike over the rail overpass in Sydney. I love going into where people live — the sights, the smells, the little repetitive things that make their world. It’s kind of a bittersweet thing but it’s the stuff of life and it has a way of making songs.”
And after more than 30 years of recording, Mark Lizotte — aka Diesel — has found a more direct route from inspiration to revelation. He adds: “I’ve really enjoyed doing it this way as it elongates the recording process, allowing for each EP to take on a uniqueness. I’ve always been a bit bummed when getting to the end of making a record and this in a way delays gratification, making 2 ‘mini albums’ on the way to an LP”.
Be sure to catch the evolution of Diesel as an artist as he rolls out Sunset Suburbia and performs a ‘best of’ collection of tracks in solo mode for the final time in 2020!
Hurry! With limited tickets available to both shows, they’re bound to sell out fast!
