Don’t miss out on your opportunity to see Australian great Carol Lloyd perform at The Brisbane Powerhouse.
Australian rock greats Carol Lloyd and Sue Ray will present ‘It Takes Two, Baby!’ on Saturday. The 90 minute show showcases an array of musical gold, with rare footage, backstage secrets and their favourite songs from the 60s and 70s.
Carol Lloyd is the former lead singer of Railroad Gin, the Brisbane rock band which shot to fame in the 70s. At the band’s peak they regularly toured Australia, performing with the likes of Suzie Quatro, Billy Thorpe, Sherbet, Little River Band, Daddy Cool, Stevie Wright, Pink Zoot, Matt Taylor, Renee Geyer and Marcia Hines.
In Brisbane last year Lloyd surprised many in the audience of a performance when she and her life partner Annie held a commitment ceremony during the interval.
More surprising however, was her announcement in January 2013 that she had received the terminal diagnosis of interstitial pulmonary fibrosis and given less than 12 months to live, but was pushing through and continuing to perform.
Carol Lloyd’s performing days are drawing to an end, with doctors now saying she only has months to live, so don’t miss this great musical event.
From The Everly Brothers to Elvis’s ‘Love Me Tender’, the Righteous Brothers’ ‘You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feelin’ to Jagger and Bowie’s ‘Dancing in the Streets’, there will be Motown sounds and grooves laid down from hit songs of their own!
With special guests Christa Powell and John Babbage from Topology, ‘It Takes Two, Baby!’ celebrates the days when ‘fros were big – and ballads even bigger!
