About this event

As young twenty-something-year-olds, Choirboys formed in 1978, growing up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The wild, hedonistic lifestyle the band witnessed of the youth in the 70s is ultimately what gave birth to their seminal rock anthem, Run To Paradise. It’s all about the stories that sound all too familiar within the culture widely assumed of the music industry – “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll” and they tell it all.

Run To Paradise is a “spilling of the beans” of sorts. It’s part story, part song that chronicles through some of the wildest, most risqué, outrageous, and downright hilarious stories of Australian Rock. All, as these Oz pub-rock icons recall it.

And behind the narrative are the classic songs that define the musical landscape of rock music in the ’70s and 80s, including Deep Purple’s “Smoke On The Water”, Chuck Berry’s ‘Never Can Tell’, TMG’s ‘Jump In My Car’, Dragon’s ‘Are You Old Enough’, AC/DC’s ‘Long Way To The Top’ and of course the Choirboys hits ‘Boys will Be Boys’, ‘Never Gonna Die’, ‘Struggletown’ and the pub-rock anthem, ‘Run to Paradise’, to name a few.
