Icehouse’s stellar comeback continues apace, with fans queuing up down the street to see them play at a secret show at The Espy in the Melbourne bayside suburb of St Kilda last month.

Now Iva Davies and the band want to give a lucky band or solo performer from Western Sydney the opportunity of a lifetime to play live on stage with them at their Penrith show on the 29th September 2011. The only requirements are that one or more band members need to be a local to the area and that the band kicks arse live!

Iva Davies reflects: “I remember when Icehouse first started performing and how difficult it was to find gigs where there would be a receptive audience. So we’d like to give someone the opportunity to play with us to a crowd in their home area. We’re looking for artists interesting songs who can play well and connect to the audience through their performance. I’ve worked with a lot of young, talented people in the past couple of years and I know how much this great talent there is out. So now I’d like to see what Western Sydney has to offer.’
