About the event

It’s time to rock ‘n’ roll with the original Ol’ 55 as they reunite for a special performance at The Palms at Crown. Lasttix members can now save 34% off tickets to see the band perform live for one night only.

Ol’ 55 smashed on to the music scene with their 1950’s and early 1960's inspired sounds which lead to the release of their multi-platinum album Take It Greasy. The album established them as one of the biggest bands in the country. They were more than mere revivalists; they not only blew the local audiences away, but also impressed the international headliners with whom they toured (ELO, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley et al). They were great entertainers, and they made great records.

The band’s antics not only saw them on the covers of the popular music press of the time, but also as TV Week poster boys (especially the Heart-throb Jim Manzie and the Striking guitarist Patrick Drummond). They quickly became regulars on Countdown, Donny Sutherland’s Sounds Unlimited, The Paul Hogan Show, Mike Walsh and Hey Hey it’s Saturday.

Featureing hits including ‘On the Prowl', 'Looking for an Echo', (I Want A) Rockin' Xmas' and 'Two Faces Have I', don’t miss this explosive live show. The original Ol 55' line-up will feature Frankie J Holden, Wilbur Wilde, Jimmy Manzie, Rockpile Jones and Patrick Dummond.
