It’s been three decades since Chocolate Starfish visited the Bundaberg Region and they are returning for one Bat Out of Hell of a tour.
The larger-than-life Melbourne band will take the words right out of Meat Loaf’s mouth when they perform one of the greatest rock albums on stage at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre later this month.
The show features the full Bat Out of Hell album plus classic songs by the master himself Jim Steinman, then it will be capped off with all the Chocolate Starfish hits with lead singer Adam Thompson.
Adam recalls performing at a local club during his last visit, and he says this performance is not to be missed.
“(We visited) back in the ’90s as part of our You're so Vain tour in 1993,” he said.
“It was (a) pub show, so this Moncrieff theatre show is much bigger and more people then back then.”
Chocolate starfish is one of Australia’s most entertaining rock bands who continues to live up to its reputation with this spectacular selection of songs honoured in true Chocolate Starfish style.
Adam said the local audience would be in for a treat as they took in the Bat Out of Hell performance.
“Live rock enjoyment beyond their imagination,” he said.
“We deliver that in spades, so don't think because it’s a theatre it’s… boring.”
Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly established themselves as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain, original hit Mountain, and perennial favourite Four Letter Word.
They wholeheartedly earned their reputation as one of Australia’s best live bands of the '90s, boasting two top 10 albums and six top 50 singles and they received the Australian Music Award for Most Popular Album at the 1994 Australian Music Awards.
Years later the band is living up to this reputation and then some as they continue to delight long-time fans and win over new ones.
