Vintage Trouble @ The Factory Theatre
Live-wired, straight-shootin, dirty-mouth’d, pelvis-pushing juke music. Vintage Trouble will be bringing this and a whole lot more @ The Factory Theatre in Sydney on the 31st of March.
Since their formation in 2010, the self-branded “Trouble Makers” have built an immense, fervent fan base. Music Weekly named them 2011 Breakout Artist of the Year and HMV hailed them as their “Next Big Thing”.
The band has performed on such television shows as Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Later…with Jools Holland as well as supporting Brian May, Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones & The Who.
The band’s performance on Later… with Jools Holland was one of the most talked about of the year, blowing up Twitter as the 6th most tweeted topic worldwide just hours after it aired. The very next day, their self-released debut, The Bomb Shelter Sessions (2012), entered the charts at No. 1 R&B Album, No. 2 Rock Album, and No. 13 on iTunes. The Bomb Shelter Sessions also earned praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal & Billboard. Their first video, ‘Nancy Lee’, filmed entirely with an iPhone, won at the Original iPhone Film Fest, not just taking the Music Video category, but the festival’s grand prize as well.
On the back of touring with AC/DC in 2015, Vintage Trouble’s new album 1 Hopeful Rd has smashed worldwide charts, currently No. 2 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart, No. 14 on the UK Album Charts, & the single ‘Strike your Light’ is No. 1 in Japan.
Vintage Trouble has continued to tour non-stop, playing numerous festivals, including Bonnaroo, Coachella & SXSW; their impromptu acoustic Glastonbury set was one of the 2014 festival’s most talked about events.
The passionate, hard-working Trouble Makers are a sure-fire to get bodies shaking & dancing in 2016 – we can’t wait!
