JOY DIVISION REWORKED (UK)
Performed by Heritage Orchestra & Scanner (UK) Visuals by Matt Watkins (UK)
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE, SYDNEY EXCLUSIVE
Paying homage to one of the most iconic bodies of work in British music history, Vivid LIVE presents visionary electronic composer Scanner and the 30-piece Heritage Orchestra in an audio-visual re-imagination of the sound and spirit of Joy Division. Instilled with poetic snapshots of Ian Curtis' haunting vocals, audiences will be guided through a sonic monument of new compositions accompanied by an animated landscape of artwork and projections created by visual artist Matt Watkins, reminiscent of the band's creative process. Celebrating Joy Division's key musical moments and groundbreaking evolution, Live_Transmission has redefined concert boundaries since proving a centrepiece of last year's prestigious Brighton Festival.
Combining classical elements, electronic instrumentation and a traditional rock framework, the Heritage Orchestra have dismantled orchestral stereotypes, garnering an uncompromising body of work with the likes of UNKLE, Aphex Twin, Amon Tobin, Antony & the Johnsons and The National's Dessner brothers. Now working alongside 'techno-data agitator' Scanner, both artists pay tribute to the band's continual resonance with fans old and new, resulting in a performance that suggests what the world's most adored 'art' band may have looked, sounded and felt like with the limitless possibilities of contemporary technology.

THE DELLTONES - The band that makes you feel good long after the show’s over!
Australia knew that it loved the Delltones way back in 1958 when four young lifesaver’s appeared at the Bronte Surf Club and more than 50 years on The Delltones are still enchanting and entertaining audiences, playing, celebrating and elevating rock’n’roll.
Ian “Peewee” Wilson founding member and the most recognizable Delltone, the tall bass man, has kept the band alive from the original vocal quartet days to the transformation to a five piece vocal band in the early 1980”s. This transformation led to the band’s resurgence and the chart topping revival album “Bop Til Ya Drop”. Today the band has come full circle returning to their roots as a four-part harmony band. The Delltones remain one of the most consistent live entertainers in Australia with arguably the longest performing and recording history for a vocal harmony band with an original member.
The first half of the show consists of The Delltones well loved classics from their early years like ‘Get A Little Dirt on Your Hands’, ‘Come a Little Bit Closer’, Hangin’ Five’ and ‘Gee’. The second half of the show consists of songs from their full-blown revival in the mid 80’s with songs from their classic Rock ‘n’ roll album ‘Bop Til Ya Drop’ and ‘Ticked Pink’, songs like ‘Get a Job’ and Papa Oom Mow Mow’ and ‘Mr Bassman’ .
If you only go out once this year, don’t miss the Delltones Live – They’re better than ever!
