Great Southern Nights in association with Triplespeak present Diesel
‘GREATEST HITS & SUNSET SUBURBIA’ SOLO TOUR Great Southern Nights, in association with Triplespeak and The Carrington Hotel, present Australian hit machine Diesel and his Sunset Suburbia Tour at The Baroque Room, Katoomba, for two exclusive shows in one night - Saturday 28 November; 6pm and 9pm.
Performing one set for 90mins at each show, onstage from 6:30-8:00pm and 9:30-11:00pm
Diesel will showcase new songs from the Sunset Suburbia album alongside all his classic hits, spanning a multi-platinum career.
The Baroque Room is a COVID-safe venue. Reserved seating with tables of 2 and 4 are designed to ensure a COVID-safe environment in the interest of public health and safety.
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!
