Normie Rowe celebrates 50 years on stage
QUE Sera Sera, Shakin' All Over, Ooh La La, I Who Have Nothing and other top hits will be part of Australian singer Normie Rowe's show in Ballina.
Normie Rowe has released his 50th anniversary album, a compilation of 30 songs recorded between 1965 and 1968, all digitally re-mastered.
For the singer, this tour is a celebration of his 50 years on stage.
"We plan to do the bulk of the material of the album in this show, so it will be a walk through memory lane," he said.
"I know there is a lot of people in the Ballina area, Byron Bay and surroundings that were around in the 1960s when I was recording, and they would get a great deal of enjoyment out of the show."
The drummer coming to Ballina with Rowe on this tour, Graeme 'Trotta' Trottman, is the original drummer of Normie Rowe and the Playboys.
"He is now 73 and he is playing just as solidly as he did as a teenager, which is quite remarkable," Rowe said.
Rowe is also working on his next release, an EP to be launched in November called Bold and Brassy.
"There are songs by Dan Walker from Cold Chisel and a couple of other people," he said.
At the Ballina RSL Club on Saturday, October 3, from 8.30pm. $35.
