The Traveling Wilburys is perhaps the world’s most iconic supergroup. The diversity of the singer-songwriters in the group, their tongue-in-cheek pseudonyms for each other, how they came together and of course their music, which lives on forever, will all be part of ‘End Of The Line – The Music of The Traveling Wilburys’ which will perform at The Athenaeum Theatre for one show only on Friday July 2.
Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty have left for their fans a legacy of 2 albums which include the timeless hits End Of The Line, Last Night, Handle With Care, She’s My baby and many many more legendary songs.
Their debut album ‘Volume 1’ won the 1990 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance even though the band never performed live.
End of The Line takes you through a narrative and musical journey of the Traveling Willburys with an Australian Cast featuring some of our own who’s who of the rock world
· Nick Barker “So it was Tom Petty that drew me to do this show, however I only started listening to a lot of Bob Dylan after hearing The Wilburys”
· Brian Mannix“I was always a George Harrison Fan so when he started the band I thought this is great”
· JR Reyne “As a kid, Mum would play both Wilbury records a lot. So, it harks back to my’ childhood. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t familiar with most of these songs”
· Bernard Curry “They came up with melodies that resonated with people, a lot of people”
· Taylor Sheridan “To be honest as far as song writing goes, it’s as good as it gets”
The Producer/Director of The Man in Black and At Last The Etta James Story now brings you the history of this supergroup and their collaboration. Everybody sang, everybody wrote, everybody produced — and had great fun doing so.
Simon Myers “The Traveling Wilburys are a stunning example of what happens when great artists come together for the pure joy of creating. We will never see another band like The Traveling Wilburys”
