2022 marks 40 years since the inaugural release of ICEHOUSE’s legendary anthem Great Southern Land, written by frontman Iva Davies in homage to Australia and its landscape while homesick on the band’s first overseas tour.
ICEHOUSE has performed the song on stages all over the world since then – for many, Great Southern Land is ICEHOUSE – but then in concert, memories are reawakened by songs like Hey Little Girl, No Promises, My Obsession, Crazy, Electric Blue, We Can Get Together and Man of Colours. Whether you are a long-term fan of their music or are encountering them for the first time, you’ll be struck by the beauty of their melodies and progressions. The band is every bit as iconic as Great Southern Land and as open to contemporary transformation.
This Adelaide Festival concert, performed under the stars at Adelaide Oval’s Village Green as part of their 40th anniversary national tour, includes a guest appearance of Iva Davies’ friend and yidaki (didgeridoo) master William Barton.
ICEHOUSE will be supported by Groote Eylandt’s AIR award-winning and ARIA-nominated blues and roots artist Emily Wurramara.
Presented in association with Live Nation.
