[Sponsored] Stars of Tripod and DAAS join forces for a night of music and laughter

The middle men of two of Australia’s greatest musical-comedy trios are locking harmonies and minds in a show that promises songs of beauty, songs of heartbreak, old squabbles and spontaneous nonsense.

Paul McDermott (Doug Anthony Allstars) and Steven Gates (Tripod) made their official debut as a musical duo at the 2017 Ballarat Cabaret Festival. That one-off spawned a sequel, a sold-out show at this year’s Adelaide Fringe Festival, and a subsequent performance before thousands of people at the Port Fairy Folk Festival. The shows have received rave reviews

Now the duo are bringing their songs to Melbourne, with two nights at the Fyrefly. Says Gates: “What we’ve come up with, I think, is a suite of pretty beautiful songs and in between those songs I just try to take Paul down a few notches.”  

Tickets are on sale now, and dinner-and-a-show packages are available.
