Noiseworks Australian Tour 2008

Australian rock-icon band Noiseworks reformed earlier this year for a sold out tour of the east coast. Due to popular demand they have now announced additional dates.

The band line up includes original founders, Jon Stevens, Steve Balbi, Stuart Fraser, Kevin Nicol, and introduces Scott Aplin. Original keyboardist, Justin Stanley is unable to attend due to overseas commitments.

Noiseworks shot to mainstream fame in 1986 with their debut single “No Lies”, which instantly became an ARIA top 20 hit. Quickly following were chart anthems “Take me back”, “Love Somebody”, “Welcome to the world”, and “Burning Feeling”, all spawned from their debut album “Noiseworks”, which charted for over a year and basked in multiple platinum sales.

The band slogged it out on the road throughout Australia, playing to packed pubs everywhere they could, as well as supporting acts such as Bon Jovi, Paul Young and Jimmy Barnes. Following the success of “Noiseworks”, the album “Touch” was released to an anxious public in November 1988. The album entered straight into the top 10 on the ARIA charts, and remained in the charts for well into the following year. The album also saw the band test international waters with a European tour.

Back in Australia, the relentless touring continued, as did the pressure to follow up two phenomenal albums. “Love vs Money” was the product of their creativeness. It was a diverse album, and instantly entered the charts at No.1. Pre-sales alone saw the album become a platinum seller – with hits like “Freedom”, “Miles and Miles”, “Hot Chilli Woman”, and “Take you higher”.

Sadly the pressures overtook the fun, and the band parted ways in 1992, with their swansong single “Let it be”.
Numerous side projects followed with vocalist, Jon Stevens, trying his hand at stage acting and then pursuing a successful solo career including time as the front man for INXS. Justin Stanley and Steve Balbi joined forces to create “The Electric Hippies”. Guitarist Stuart Fraser joined the John Farnham band, and also toured with acts such as Olivia Newton-John and Kylie Minogue. Drummer Kevin Nicol entered the art business, and also mentored in the Canberra music scene. Noiseworks still carry a large following today. Noiseworks’ shows were always known to be some of the best that Australian live rock could nurture.

Noiseworks will be joined by Aussie Rock Legends… Choirboys best known for their massive hits such as Run To Paradise, Boys Will Be Boys and Never Gonna Die and experienced newcomers... Move Trees.
