With Special Guests

For over 30 years, Jon Stevens remarkable career as a singer, songwriter and performer has seen him achieve so much. This includes ARIA chart-topping success as the front man of legendary Australian bands Noiseworks and INXS, and now, with another band on the rise, The Dead Daisies.

Following the success of Noiseworks, in 1992 Stevens decided to pursue opportunities on a different kind of stage - starring as Judas in the highly acclaimed and successful Australian Musical Production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar.

A studio collaboration in 2000, saw Stevens become part of rock band INXS as guest vocalist and he embarked on a global tour with them. This included a 55-day engagement with the legendary Night of the Proms throughout Europe. Shortly after, he was officially announced as the “seventh member” of INXS.

In 2012, Stevens and guitarist David Lowy wrote and recorded what would be the debut album for The Dead Daisies. Their first single ‘Lock ‘N’ Load’ featured legendary guitarist, Slash. Throughout 2013, the music of The Dead Daisies came alive on-stage with various internationally recognised musicians, first as support to ZZ Top on their Australian tour, before joining musical giants Aerosmith, on their first Australasian tour in 23 years. The Dead Daisies played alongside Jane’s Addiction, Alice In Chains and Coheed & Cambria as part of the Rockstar Uproar Festival that year, as well.

2013 also saw Stevens return to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Jesus Christ Superstar for its latest production, this time in the role of Pontius Pilot, which was met with critical acclaim. A sold-out 23 date Arena Tour played all over Australia.

2014 continued to be a busy year for Jon. July saw him setoff on a summer tour across the US with The Dead Daisies, supporting rock legends Bad Company & Lynyrd Skynyrd. The band then joins Def Leppard & Kiss on tour during August, as well as releasing a new The Dead Daisies EP, Face I Love.

To complete a huge year, Jon is keen to hit the Aussie road with his “Take Me Back” tour, which will see him singing some of his favourite songs from the amazing rock journey that has taken him all over the world, including being called up on stage at Madison Square Garden while in New York recently, to perform with Billy Joel. From Noiseworks classics to songs that have influenced and inspired him, Jon Stevens will delight all his fans with his laid-back yet energetic performances.
