Eighties Aussie rock legends Moving pictures will be on stage at Lizotte’s Newcastle this Friday, October 13th. Returning with their classic line up Line up of Alex Smith, Andrew Thompson, Charlie Cole, Garry Frost, Ian Lees, Mark Meyer, with all the tunes we know and love, including their mega eighties anthem “What About Me”

Moving Pictures formed in 1978. Their debut album, Days of Innocence, was issued in October 1981 and eventually peaked at No. 1 on the Kent Music Report Albums Chart in February the following year. In January 1982 they released their single, “What About Me”, which reached No. 1 on the related Kent Music Report Singles Chart. Late that year Elektra Records issued Days of Innocence and “What About Me” in North America. The single reached No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 and appeared on the associated year-end Hot 100 list for 1983.

In November 1982 another single, “Winners”, peaked at No. 12 in Australia. In October 1983 their second album, Matinee, was released. It reached No. 16 and, of its four singles, only the lead single, “Back to the Streets”, reached the Top 40. Their non-album single, “Never”, was used for two film soundtracks, Footloose (1984) and Hot Rod (2007).

We caught the Moving Pictures live in 2016 and the band is still in damn fine form, expect one hell of a show, book now to avoid disappointment!
