The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia’s most successful touring bands and 2014 has proven nothing different. After two powerful performances at Bluesfest in Byron over Easter, the band flew to Norway to play at the legendary Rockerfeller Music Hall in Oslo and now they’re on their way for a very special intimate show for local fans at Mornington’s Grand Hotel on Friday 31st October.

Scandinavia embraced Joe and The Black Sorrows in the late eighties / early nineties, where their albums, Hold On To Me and Harley & Rose were Top Ten hits. Membership in The Black Sorrows has always been loose and fluid with Camilleri being the only constant. The Sorrows ‘elastic line-up’ and has been home to over 40 talented Australian musicians at different times and acted as a launch pad for the careers of some of Australia’s most successful musicians.

Writer of milestone Australian songs such as So Young, Hit And Run, Shape I’m In, Hold On To Me, Harley and Rose, Chained To The Wheel, Never Let Me Go and the Chosen Ones, Camilleri has dedicated his life to making music. Leader of two of Australia’s most successful bands, Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons and The Black Sorrows, Joe’s music has become part of Australian music culture.  Since 1984, The Black Sorrows have toured Australia more times than anyone can remember, played sell out shows across Europe, won the ARIA for Best Band‚ and sold more two million albums worldwide. Joe Camilleri has shown fans and critics alike that he is a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all.

The Black Sorrows perform Friday October 31 at the Grand Hotel, Main Street Mornington.  Tickets are available from the venue Ph 5975-2001 and for further details visit
