Presented by NOOSA alive!
SAT, 20 JULY | THE J THEATRE
SUPPORTED BY ALISHA TODD
Sat, 20 Jul 2019
7:30PM - 10:00PM
An absolute highlight of the 2019 program – Australian songwriting icon TIM FREEDMAN will take to the stage for a special solo performance at The J on Saturday 20 July supported by ALISHA TODD.
Sydney-based Tim Freedman is best known as the front-man and songwriter of one of the most loved Australian rock bands THE WHITLAMS – an Australian Recording Industry Group of the Year with four platinum and two gold albums, whose appeal reaches audiences of all ages and tastes.
Tim’s one-off solo performance for NOOSA alive! will see him sharing his well-crafted songs – a wonderful mix of caustic wit and delicate piano. It is no surprise that Tim's solo shows have become as popular as his four-piece band shows. The Whitlams’ success has always been about the emotional clout of his songs, which is laid bare when the rock adornments are removed.
Tim’s show will draw songs from across his entire career and of course will include No Aphrodisiac, Buy Now and Pay Later and Blow Up the Pokies to name but a few.
One of Australia’s most talented creatives, Tim is renowned for his instinct for poignant lyrics and melody, and his highly individual musical style. The good humour and banter of his performances is legendary as is his real talent for live performance. His songs can sound as if Randy Newman had joined Crowded House.
