Joe Camilleri & The Black Sorrows
Sunday 19 March 2023
Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows return to Tallagandra Hill in March 2023 for another night of high energy, lift the roof off, roots-soaked blues rock awesomeness!
With the newly released album, Live From The Shangri-La, plus all the hits from the Sorrows award winning career, this will be a night not to be missed.
Having landed back at Number 1 on ARIA Blues chart three times so far with the album Saint Georges Road. This album is a milestone for Joe Camilleri being his 50th album release. To celebrate he reunited with Grammy nominated Peter Solley – producer of Jo Jo Zep & the Falcons’ breakthrough album Screaming Targets (‘79) that featured Joe’s first Top 40 hits, Hit & Run and Shape I’m In.
Saint Georges Road showcases 11 original tracks written by Joe Camilleri and his long-time writing partner Nick Smith. Before they embarked on the project, Peter Solley asked Joe one question, “What kind of record do you want to make?” Joe replied, “A good one.”
“This album is a testament to Joe Camilleri’s long-lasting career and his burning desire to keep working at his craft. The album shows the power of love and inspiration that spans 40 years of our lives,” says Peter Solley, who also adds his Hammond B3 and keyboards to the record…“I’m sure, Saint Georges Road will inspire Joe’s fans as well.”
At the final listening session, as the title track was played, Joe recalls a profound moment, “We were two like-minded souls coming together for what could be the last time…we knew we had something special…a record that was a culmination of everything I’d done before and probably the best record I’ve made.” The following day Peter Solley headed back to his home in the US. The day after that, Australia’s borders were shut.
The Black Sorrows are one of Australia’s most prolific and enduringly popular bands renowned for their high-energy live shows, musicianship, and infectious, roots-soaked blues rock. They’ve sold more than two million albums to date and won an ARIA Award for Best Group.
Joe Camilleri has been at the forefront of Australian music for decades as the leader of Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons and The Black Sorrows and as writer of radio anthems Hit & Run, Shape I’m In, Chained To The Wheel, Harley & Rose and Never Let Me Go.
Joe Camilleri is an ARIA Hall of Famer and at 73 years old, a rock’n’roll lifer.
