Aussie music legends Icehouse have announced a rare, one off free gig at the Espy in Melbourne this Saturday night, July 9th. Icehouse was formed by front man and creative force, Iva Davies, in 1977.
Originally known as Flowers, this pub band entered a recording contract with Regular Records and released their debut album, Icehouse which made it into the Top 5, becoming the highest selling debut album in Australia at the time.
Their second album, Primitive Man, produced the smash hit Great Southern Land which has become an anthem for Australians everywhere, while the album aalso included the single ‘Hey Little Girl’, which became a European No. 1, selling over 650,000 copies within months of its release in Australia and with song from it still played across Europe and the USA to this day.
It was their album Man of Colours that made this Australian band a massive international success with the smash hit singles ‘Crazy’ and ‘Electric Blue’ topping both the US airplay and sales charts.
Man of Colours became the highest local selling album by an Australian band ever and was the band’s most successful album – selling more than a million copies in Australia alone. This is an incredibly rare chance to see an iconic Aussie band up close and in person.
