SONGS: Songs and Tales of Angry Old Men celebrates rock and roll. It comes to RPAC on March 30.

The Songs and Tales of Angry Old Men is a celebration of rock-n-roll and the songs that defined great moments throughout the decades.

It comes to the Redland Performing Arts Centre at 8pm on March 30.

From the writer and producer of the sell-out Pearl – The Janis Joplin Story, the performance delivers some of the greatest music ever made by the singers and songwriters who will never be forgotten.

This ‘rockumentary’ features more than 20 great songs interwoven with tales that reveal surprising and little-known stories behind the music.

There will be music from legendary artists including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Jim Morrison, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, John Mellencamp and Neil Young.

These angry and talented performers sang the songs that defined a nation and a generation.

The Songs and Tales of Angry Old Men was written and produced by Chris Keeble, who has had first-hand knowledge of some of her subjects, having toured with a few of them in the 70s. This is a Fish Out of Water production.

While she has her own stories to tell, but said she was not one to kiss and tell, at least not always.

The show is described as having all the hits that defined an era from original cool 'hipsters'.

In this show some equally cool and talented performers will bring these songs to life yet again.

The concert will feature an all-star cast of angry musicians with a wicked sense of humour including Jeremy Edwards and Matt Ross performing vocals and guitar, Wayne Kellett on bass and vocals, Di Solomon on keys and vocals and George Brugmans on drums.

Tickets are $35–$45 and bookings can be made on 3829 8131 or rpac.com.au (booking fees are $4.30 by phone and $5 online per transaction).

WIN: Winning one double pass (value $90) is Shelley Scandrett of Wellington Point. You will be contacted by a representative from RPAC with ticket collection details.
