THE ALLSTARS can trace their pedigree back almost to when rock n roll began. They have performed throughout Australia and have shared the stage with many internationally acclaimed artists including Gene Pitney, The Shadows, Chubby Checker, The Platters, Tom Jones, Rick Nelson, Del Shannon, Bobby Rydell, The Crystals, Chan Romero, Gerry Marsden, Chris Montez and Buddy Holly’s Crickets. After more than sixty years this is their finale, and it’s sure to get you movin’ & grovin’!
THE ALLSTARS will accompany some exciting Australian guest stars for their final performance including Normie Rowe, Donna Fisk, Mark Andrew, Rick Diamond and Billy O’Rourke. They will perform some of the biggest hits of the Rock-n-Roll era.
“The Allstars Finale has been both an exciting and reflective activity,” said Bassist and Producer of THE ALLSTARS Ian B Allen AM. “Exciting because The Allstars will be performing again with some of their favourite performers.
“Reflective as it takes us back to 1957 when the group first started and made recordings and the hundreds of shows and many, many tours with international acts that followed. It is certainly a show in Melbourne’s rock n roll history that should not be missed.”
The Allstars have performed in most venues throughout Australia and performed at many major events such as the Australian Bi-Centenary celebrations, Australia Day celebrations and the Melbourne Moomba festival.
Among the many Australian artists who have featured with The Allstars include Glenn Shorrock, Doug Parkinson, Ian Turpie, Johnny Chester, Alison Durbin, Jade Hurley, Judy Stone, Merv Benton, Darren Williams, Little Pattie, Sandy Scott, Grantley Dee, Dinah Lee, Lucky Starr, Roland Storm, Lonnie Lee, Bev Harrell, Bobby & Laurie, Ross D Wylie, Barry Stanton, Johnny Devlin, Marcie Jones and Warren Williams.
As Stan “the Man” Rofe, the legendary DJ who was the first to broadcast rock-n-roll on Melbourne radio and who was inducted in to the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, said “The Allstars are clearly the most authentic and professional rock-n-roll group in Australia.”
