Iconic Aussie country rock band STARS are back again reunited after 40 years with the

original line-up of Mick Pealing, Mal Eastick, Glyn Dowding and Roger McLachlan. Catch

Stars with Nick Charles on guitar. Special guest KEVIN BENNETT.

Originally from Adelaide Stars moved to Melbourne after being discovered by Beeb

Birtles of Little River Band. By this stage the Andy Durant joined the band and began

writing some of the most notable Australian songs before his untimely death at the age

of 25.

STARS supported The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, and Joe Cocker and toured

extensively to sell out gigs Australia wide. Many have said their country rock blend

coupled with Durant’s lyrics were well ahead of their time and are often referred as

Australia’s Eagles.

The band’s debut album Paradise peaked at No.11 on the Aussie charts and included

their highest charting single Look After Yourself. This was followed by their second

album Land of Fortune and then 1157 named after the number of live gigs they had

done. The single Mighty Rock can be heard on radio today and is often requested by

their loyal fan base.

A tribute performance by STARS alongside many great Australian artists including

Renee’ Geyer, and Richard Clapton, for band member Durant, produced a live album

that peaked at No.8 on the charts and video that is to this day celebrated as one of the

all- time greatest Australian concert.

With new material being recorded, sell out shows in Melbourne, headlining Sydney

Blues & Roots, Thredbo Blues and Brighter Days Festival, the band are ready to tour

again. This is a much-anticipated return of this great Aussie Band.
