James Reyne to play at Moncrieff

James Reyne will celebrate 40 years of Australian Crawl's greatest hits at Moncrieff Entertainment Centre.

Australian musician James Reyne will hit the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre stage to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Australian Crawl’s first greatest hits collection.

To coincide with the tour, Crawl File will be reissued on vinyl by Universal Music.

Crawl File plays like a classic gig, opening with the band’s debut single, ‘Beautiful People’, and closing with their most popular live song, ‘The Boys Light Up’.

In between are some of the most-loved Australian songs of all time, including ‘Reckless’, ‘Errol’, ‘Oh No Not You Again’, ‘Lakeside’, ‘Downhearted’ and ‘Things Don’t Seem’.

The best-of capped a bittersweet year for James Reyne and Australian Crawl.

The band sponsored 1984’s Bells Beach Surf Classic, James won a Logie for Most Popular New Talent following his starring role in the hit mini-series Return To Eden, and Australian Crawl won Most Popular Group at the Countdown Rock Awards.

The band was then rocked by the death of Guy McDonough and a planned US tour was cancelled.

James Reyne at Moncrieff

James Reyne is an artist who doesn’t live in the past, but occasionally he pays it a visit.

“It was all a long time ago and sometimes I feel like it was another person who lived that life,” he said.

“I’m still making music and I’m still on the road, Australian Crawl was a great apprenticeship.”

Crawl File was the biggest Australian best-of of 1984, hitting #2 on the charts, kept out of top spot by the year’s biggest compilation, Choose 1985, which spent nine weeks at #1.

Special guests include the Josh Owen Band.
