Forever Young ~ The Songs of Bob Dylan

A birthday celebration with Ross Wilson, Adalita and many more

Sat 25 May @ 7.30pm | Burrinja Theatre 

Presented by Caravan Music & Leicashow Presents, and featuring Ross Wilson, Adalita, Rebecca Barnard, Mick Thomas, Lisa Miller, Charles Jenkins, Rob Snarski and more, with Musical Director Shane O’Mara and aptly named house band The Luminaries

Continuing a tradition that began at the Caravan Club's original location in Oakleigh in 2011 for Bob’s 70th, Leicashow and Caravan are upping the ante to bring their beloved Bob Dylan Birthday Bash to St Kilda's iconic Palais Theatre and selected suburban and regional venues in May.

It's a tradition that has seen some of the biggest and brightest in Australian music - including Vika & Linda, Joe Camilleri, Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers - perform songs that are enmeshed in the very fabric of their musical lives and to wish Bob a good one!

Revered vocalists and long-established Dylan fan favourites Ross Wilson, Adalita, Rebecca Barnard, Mick Thomas, Lisa Miller, Charles Jenkins and Rob Snarski are all on board, and there are other vocalists to be announced. They'll all be backed as always by the incredible house band, The Luminaries featuring MD Shane O’Mara, Shane Reilly, Adrian Whitehead, Rick Plant and Ben Wiesner. As is the case every year, everybody will dig deep and give their very best - for you and for Bob.

None of us are getting any younger, but certain things are apparently ageless. And while Bob Dylan may be turning 83, his vast catalogue of songs - songs written over a period now spanning over 60 years - remains as wondrous, relevant and life-affirming as ever. It is a body of work that has, indeed, remained Forever Young.

Age recommendation: 16+

BROAD ~ Geraldine Quinn

Bold dames, bejewelled tales; camp glamour meets ageing grace in this cabaret of self-discovery.

Fri 31 May 7.30pm | Lyre Room

Multi-award-winning rock cabaret artist Geraldine Quinn ('Spicks & Specks', 'Upper Middle Bogan', 'The Weekly') returns with her first original show in four long years - 'BROAD'. Quinn grew up idolising fabulous, bold, brassy (mostly ginger) older women. Now she's becoming one. So Quinn makes her overdue return to the cabaret stage to release everyone's inner DGAF Dame.

Whether you want to unlock the Auntie Mame inside you, polish your brassiness or if (like Quinn) your knees just aren't working anymore and you need to be near someone who understands, ALL are welcome in The Broad Church.

“The sort of electric thunderclap that inspires audience members to hoot out loud and bump the air with their fists in empowered solidarity, it lays down the gauntlet for the moment to beat” Time Out ★★★★★

Eric Bibb ~ Live in the Lyre

The ultimate “blues brother” is coming to Burrinja.

Sun 2 Jun 4.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

Eric Bibb is known and revered globally as a fiery singer- songwriter with true soul, grounded in the folk/blues tradition but with contemporary sensibilities.

Testament to his endurance as one of the most relevant, leading bluesmen of our time, Eric’s most recent album, Ridin’ has received a Grammy nomination in the Best Traditional Blues Album category. It sits in the Top 10 of multiple blues and roots charts, has over three million Spotify streams and been lauded by critics as his “late life classic” and “a fervent gospel-backed blues manifesto”. The past twelve months alone has seen his entire catalogue clock up 15 million streams.

To experience Eric live is to be struck by his sheer humanity and convictions based in the values of the civil rights movement of the sixties. He challenges us to do better, to reach higher, and strive harder.

Greece Lightening ~ Garry Star

Zeus, Fools, and Drachmas: One Idiot's Mythical Quest for Prosperity.

Thu 13 Jun 7.30pm | Lyre Room

An overzealous idiot attempts to perform all of Greek Mythology in order to save his Hellenic homeland from economic ruin.

Never before has Medusa been looser, Achilles more sillies or Uranus so heinous. Having single handedly saved the performing arts in 2018 with his multi-award-winning debut show Garry Starr Performs Everything, comic wunderkind Garry returns with another anarchic masterclass not to be mythed.

"Starr’s rambunctious antics belie how intelligent and tightly structured this exhilarating hour of sidesplittingly funny physical comedy is" ★★★★★ Sydney Morning Herald

The upcoming Burrinja performance of KATE MILLER-HEIDKE - CATCHING DIAMONDS TOUR on Tuesday 20 February, 2024 has been rescheduled for Saturday 21 September, 2024 due to scheduling conflicts.

Current ticket holders please check your email for important information regarding the rescheduling of this show


Kate Miller-Heidke is an award-winning singer-songwriter who traverses the worlds of folk, pop, opera and musical theatre.  She has performed on stages as varied as the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Coachella, the New York Metropolitan Opera, the Eurovision Song Contest, the Sydney Opera House, and the Roebuck Bay Hotel, Broome. 

And now, after long months locked away writing songs, she’s hitting the road to play in dozens of beautiful theatres around Australia.

Kate will be playing her greatest hits and most beloved pop songs, as well as performing tracks from her original musicals ‘Muriel’s Wedding the Musical’ and the new ‘Bananaland’, some unexpected covers, taking requests, and telling stories from across her varied career. Excitingly, she’ll also be debuting new material from her forthcoming 6th studio album, which will dive deep into the genre of ‘gothic folk’.

This is a special opportunity to see Kate in intimate, stripped-back mode, accompanied by her long-term collaborator Keir Nuttall on guitar. 

(The bendy poles from Eurovision will be there emotionally, but not physically).
