The Traveling Wilburys Sessions
Saturday 6 March, 8:00pm
The Traveling Wilburys was a supergroup.
Any band in which Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne are the ‘unknowns’ would have to be very special. George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison are giants of popular music who completed this magical lineup. They are adored by all generations of music lovers.
Now their songs have been re-imagined for Australian concert audiences. Music director Sam See has assembled a knockout band featuring James Black, Lindsay Field , Glyn Mason, Angus Burchall and Paul Cartwright. Together they create an unforgettable experience featuring sensational vocals, knockout harmonies and gargantuan guitar work as they pay tribute to the Wilburys and its superstar members.
It doesn’t get much better.
