The Jezabels



The Jezabels were absolutely amazing! I was fortunate to have had a small taste of The Jezabels live when they sang their smash hit "Endless Summer" at the 2012 ARIAS, leaving a lasting impression. Fresh from international touring and festival appearances, The Jezabels put on a positively knock out performance at Sydney Opera House.

From Heathers opening organ solo to romping thru a stellar setlist of past and present, which included crowd interaction when Hayley gave the front row a bit of a blast, climbing over the seats during Hurt Me to Heather revealing it was Hayleys birthday which prompted the crowd to erupt with a thunderous "Happy Birthday" and a moving dedication to the plight of asylum seekers with the song "No Country" which had stirred the audience hardly able to contain emotions upon hearing the lyrics. As the show was coming to an end and they announced last song, you could just feel the excitement building then they played Catch Me! I gotta say it was euphoric hearing it live. Absolutely loved every minute of it.

INCREDIBLE!

I was sat next to a cool couple who said they had bonded over Prisoner LP and we shared a few interesting gig and festival stories. Afterwards venturing outside, it was a beautiful balmy evening just perfect for a stroll along the water reflecting on such a truly amazing evening. Thank you SOH and The Jezabels for a memorable experience!
