DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND DRAGON ANNOUNCE ANOTHER TWO SPECIAL SHOW DATES TO CELEBRATE THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CLASSIC HIT APRIL SUN IN CUBA.

When it comes to iconic songs, there are few as anthemic and recognisable as April Sun in Cuba. A chart-topper, it peaked at #2 in 1977 and stayed on the charts for a massive 22 weeks, acting as the first monster hit for legendary band Dragon and endearing them to Australian audiences.

To celebrate the song’s auspicious anniversary, the band have announced an extra two special night's to party in style. “A song that is part of the soundtrack of everyone’s life needs a birthday party on turning 40,” says bassist Todd Hunter. “As everyone knows, life begins at 40, so who knows what is in store for April Sun in Cuba.

We had no idea when we recorded the song that it was a hit, or that we would be celebrating its longevity 40 years later! These shows are a celebration of a song that will live on long after we are gone.” Since the track first smashed onto the airwaves, the public’s affection for the party anthem hasn’t wavered. Whether it is listening to it with a feeling of nostalgia or a new generation discovering the song for the first time, there is something about April Sun in Cuba that resonates with music lovers.

With the imminent release of Brutal Dawn, companion album to 2016’s Civil Dusk, Bernard Fanning and The Black Fins are again pulling out the road cases to showcase new songs live in some of Australia’s most cherished and revered rock venues.

This October, touring will take in all Australian states in venues handpicked to showcase the on-stage musical chemistry between Bernard and The Black Fins; Salliana Campbell on fiddle and backing vocals, Matt Engelbrecht on bass, Andrew Morris on guitar and Declan Kelly on drums.

In addition, every state will feature a different powerhouse local female artist to open the show. Making waves in not only their local scene, but internationally, Oh Pep! will help kick off the tour in Adelaide on Friday 6 October and also join the Melbourne shows, followed by Teischa in Perth, Tia Gostelow and Sahara Beck in Brisbane, Sahara Beck for an encore in Sydney and winding up with Maddy Jane in Hobart.

This tour is a culmination of a busy two years for Bernard Fanning – writing Civil Dusk and its follow up Brutal Dawn - and recording with producer Nick DiDia and the Black Fins in La Cueva studio in Byron Bay.

“Fanning, obviously very comfortable and enjoying himself, held the crowd in the palm of his hand as if he was singing to each one individually back in his lounge room…That he was able to impart that joy and pleasure to his audience is a tribute to his talent.” Rhythms Magazine

The members of Past to Present are: Frank, Norman, Joanne, Dayne, Matt and Johann – six talented entertainers who each deliver their own quintessential flavour whilst collectively priding themselves on taking their musicianship and showmanship to the next level. The result is nothing short of dynamic!

Joanne's debut single 'Jackie' also earned her an ARIA Award for the 'Highest Selling Australian Single of 1999'.
