The MSO’s beloved summer series returns with a program of star-crossed love, opening with Tchaikovsky’s Fantasy Overture Romeo and Juliet. Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloe conjures an ancient tale of desire tantalisingly out of reach, while the spirit of romantic love pervades Strauss’ songs. This homage to amour closes with Porgy and Bess, Gershwin’s musical love story fusing New York jazz with musical traditions from America’s Deep South.

Brit-pop revivalists, The Kooks, will be returning to Australia for their most monstrous tour of the antipodes to date! Having toured Australia many times, the last being a sold out tour around Groovin’ The Moo in 2013, these are the largest headline shows they've played here, and are set to be huge.

The Kooks released their eagerly anticipated new album Listen (Virgin/EMI) earlier this month, with Q Mag stating “This is a very good album. The Kooks sound like a band rejuvenated”. Produced by Luke Pritchard and young hip hop pioneer Inflo, it showcases a new direction and sound for the multi-platinum selling UK act. They already laid down the gauntlet with swaggering first taster Down, then followed up with second single Around Town, which was another shift away from classic Kooks into unchartered territory and was the first track written for the forthcoming album.

Joining The Kooks are special guests The Griswolds, recently returned from 6 months of touring and festival appearances in the USA, and Welsh indie-rock four piece, Catfish & The Bottlemen, who have made a huge splash onto the scene with their current single Cocoon sitting on high rotation on triple j.
