Australia’s rekindled love affair with local icons Icehouse just seems to grow and grow. This time, the JD Set has enlisted Art vs Science and a host of guest vocalists to perform the band’s greatest hits in two special one off gigs in Melbourne and Sydney.
The Sydney genre benders are set to team up with Kate Miller-Heidke, The Grates’ Patience Hodgson and Dappled Cities’ Tim Derricourt to re-interpret some of the band’s classics such as ‘Great Southern Land’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Electric Blue’, ‘We Can Get Together’, ‘Hey Little Girl’ and ‘Can’t Help Myself’ among others.
Icehouse front man Iva Davies says “It was quite a surprise and honour to find out that several of my favourite current Australian artists were getting together to perform songs from the Icehouse catalogue. It seems the release earlier this year of the 30th Anniversary of the Flowers’ Icehouse album has unearthed some fans in the music community and I can’t wait to hear what they do with the songs to make them their own.”
