Paul McDermott & Gatesy Go Solo

Penney and Logan present

Paul McDermott & Gatesy Go Solo

Songs of beauty, songs of heartbreak, freshly-minted comedy concoctions, old squabbles and spontaneous nonsense. Two of Australia’s most adored singer-songwriters lock harmonies and minds in one unmissable show. Paul McDermott (Doug Anthony All Stars) and Steven Gates (Tripod) have been friends for 18 years, and singing together in private for five. It’s time for them to share.

Best known as the middle-men of two of Australia’s greatest musical-comedy trios, Paul and Gatesy made their official debut as a musical duo at a one-off event at the 2017 Ballarat Cabaret Festival. That one-off spawned a sequel with a sold-out show at this year’s Adelaide Fringe Festival, and subsequent performances before thousands of people at the Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals. The poetry of their lyrics and the beauty of their voices have enthralled audiences, with demands for further shows coming from all corners of Australia.

The Melbourne Recital Centre is proud to host the much anticipated, one night only, Melbourne International Comedy Festival debut of these two extraordinary talents, together at last in an exclusive up-close-and-personal show.

'Compellingly beautiful. ★★★★' Fringe Review

'From the moment they entered the room together, their energy was undeniable... once they reached the stage, they were unstoppable.' The Music
