The annual Sunset at the Soundshell concert series will be back in 2021 with an amazing line up of entertainment.
Tuesday, 26 January 2021 – Australia Day
The first of the 2021 Sunset at the Soundshell Concerts has been cancelled after the COVID Event Plan was rejected by Department of Health following the introduction of new COVID Event Plan approval process on 13 January.
The Department of Health issued the changes to the COVID Event Plan approval process following a review of events featuring live music late last year.
The changes mean that the Battle of the Bands and fireworks display scheduled for 26 January has had to be cancelled, and the remaining two concerts are currently being reviewed.
The Citizenship Ceremony, Australia Day Awards and Walk of Fame will still be taking place at 6pm on Tuesday, 26 January at Centennial Park.
Saturday, 13 February 2021 – Stella Donnelly
Stella Donnelly has toured relentlessly in support of her critically acclaimed debut album ‘Beware of the Dogs’ . Released in March 2019, the album received international praise from leading outlets such as Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, The New York Times and Stereogum.
The release of the record and preceding singles such as ‘Old Man’ & ’Tricks’ propelled Donnelly to new heights including studio sessions for NPR’s Tiny Desk & KEXP as well an envious international touring schedule which saw her sell out shows across North America and Europe as well as play prestigious festivals such as Glastonbury, Roskilde and a stand out performance at Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival among many others.
Although touring has taken a back seat for much of the year, 2020 saw Donnelly receive the prestigious Australian Independent Record Label’s Association (AIR) ‘Album Of The Year’ and ‘Pop Album Of The Year’ awards for ‘Beware of the Dogs ‘
An artist totally in command of her voice; able to blend her inviting charm and sharp wit into authentically raw songs, Donnelly’s song writing makes you feel like you're in her lounge room and she's just made you a cup of tea and a slice of cake, so that you're comfortable when she tells you some hard truths.
Saturday, 27 February 2021 – Eskimo Joe
While successfully straddling the line between commercial success and managing to keep their Alternative Music roots secure, over their career, Eskimo Joe have racked up a long list of impressive accomplishments. With 6 studio albums under their belts and sales in excess of 750,000, in Australia alone, the band has seen 3 of those albums debut at number 1 on the ARIA charts, with juggernaut ‘Black Fingernails, Red Wine’ shining for a monster 62 weeks in the ARIA Chart Top 50 and “Foreign Land”, from their fourth album ‘Inshalla', bringing home 2 APRA Awards, for Most Played Rock Song on Australian radio and Best Rock Song of 2010.
Concerts will be held at Centennial Park with food trucks and a kids play zone. Bring a picnic~ and soak up the atmosphere while listening to some of WAs best bands.
