Brisbane Festival presents


09 Sep
QPAC - Concert Hall

ARIA Award-winning, iconic Brisbane band george will reform for an exclusive 20th anniversary performance at Brisbane Festival.

The george reunion performance will reunite all original members of the band – sister and brother powerhouse Katie Noonan and Tyrone Noonan, Geoff Green, Paulie Bromley and Nick Stewart.

The band began their rise to the top in 1998, releasing EP george in 1998 and You Can Take What's Mine in 1999 and Bastard Son/Holiday in 2000. Each were heavily rotated by triple j, gaining the band a huge live following across Australia. In 2001, the band released singles 'Special Ones', 'Run' and 'Breathe In Now' as their debut album Polyserena debuted at #1 on the ARIA charts. Polyserena achieved gold record status within ten days, platinum record status within three weeks, then went double platinum, spending 36 weeks in the top 50.

Touted as one of the best live Australian bands ever, george were one of the first indie bands to sell out huge venues like The Metro Theatre in Sydney, paving the way for non-commercial music in Australia.

The band are reuniting for their first live show together in 11 years as 2016 marks 20 years since the band formed in Brisbane.

From their humble beginnings at the Gold Coast Rose and Crown Tavern, the band went on to sell out the Sydney Opera House three times and perform around the world.

We’re thrilled to have george back to the stage for this exclusive anniversary event.
