"The Black Sorrows", are one of Australia's bands that continue to tour consistently around the world, and have truly earned the recognition, as a dynamic live act and festival darling. At the Atlantis they will play highlights from their repertoire.
When you look at the background of The Black Sorrows, you come to the conclusion that the band stands or falls with Joe Camilleri - he is the heart and brain of the band. He was recently named a "Living Legend" by Rolling Stone magazine. Joe's musical career spans an amazing 50+ years. A singer, composer, versatile musician and producer, Joe Camilleri, is considered one of the most amazing talents in the Australian music world. Joe was inducted into the "ARIA Music Hall of Fame" in 2007.
On stage, Joe Camilleri skillfully leads his band through an infectious interplay, of various infectious musical genres, such as blues, rock, old school R&B, with influences of jazz, country and Brill Building pop music. The "Black Sorrows" have a large loyal fan base in Australia and Europe. Their musicianship and energy delight music fans around the world. A year after the end of his influential and successful band "Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons", Joe Camilleri formed "The Black Sorrows" in 1984, as a loose association of like-minded musicians. From simple beginnings, such as concerts in various cafes around Melbourne or selling albums from the trunk of his private car, Joe has developed "The Black Sorrows" into one of Australia's most sophisticated ensembles. And when the first radio stations began to play the hit "Mystified", the road of success was finally paved. The CBS/Sony record company signed the "Black Sorrows" and the numerous award-winning hits, such as the platinum selling hits "Hold On to Me", "Harley & Rose" and "The Chosen Ones", were made available to a worldwide audience. Joe's talent, as a songwriter, is highly regarded and recognized even by the biggest names in music - artists such as Elvis Costello and John Denver have recorded their own cover versions of Joe's songs. "The Black Sorrows" have won, as "Best Band", the Australian music award ARIA, play to sold out stages worldwide, and have sold more than 2 million albums. "The Black Sorrows" will go on a big European tour in 2018, with their new 21st album. Together with Joe Camilleri (vocals/guitar/saxophone/harmonica), the band boasts an impressive line-up with Claude Carranza (guitar/vocals), Mark Gray (bass guitar/vocals), John McAll (keyboards/vocals) and Angus Burchall (drums).
