Craft Music and Fusion Boutique presents BEN LEE vs THE COLLAPSE OF THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TOUR
+ Special Guests TBA
Baroque Room, The Carrington Hotel driveway entrance, Katoomba, Blue Mountains
Friday 6th October 2023
Doors Open 7:30pm | Show Start 8pm
In one corner, we have an industry all but obliterated by corporate interests, streaming platforms and a pandemic, now overtaken by conformity, materialism and fear. In the other, stands a solitary figure, an unpredictable maverick born of the name Ben Lee, preparing to dance, to bob and weave one more time, as the crowd holds its collective breath, opening their mouths only to gasp in awe, or to munch on popcorn, while simultaneously checking their social media applications.
What does it take for a musician/storyteller/raconteur to not only survive, but thrive, under the current conditions? This is a concert experience that will reveal all… as audiences around Australia witness with their own eyes this freak of nature, now over three decades into his career, reviving the songs that made him a household name, mixed in with new material that Rolling Stone Magazine recently labelled “the best of his career”, all delivered with his trademark “am I joking or not?” sense-of-humour and a relationship to singing on key that can only be called “approximate”. Our hero promises crowds an evening of music, storytelling and pure entertainment.
This is a general admission standing show with limited reserved group booking tables available – first in best dressed!
