Icehouse To Play Free Gig In Melbourne Saturday

Melbourne will be treated to a free Icehouse gig on Saturday night at the Espy in St Kilda.

Iva Davies will be in Melbourne for a charity show at the Ronald McDonald House Charities Gala Ball on Friday night and is staying over for the Saturday gig.

The renewed activity from Icehouse comes just after the release of the recent 30th anniversary edition of the debut album ‘Icehouse’ by Flowers.

The next project will be the greatest hits album ‘White Heat: 30 Hits’ in August.

‘White Heat: 30 Hits’ will feature 2 CDs each with 15 songs in chronological order of their release, starting with the very first Flowers single ‘Can’t Help Myself’. There is also a DVD featuring all of the music videos.

In a statement, Iva says, “Following the release of the Flowers ICEHOUSE 30th Anniversary edition earlier this year, I was overwhelmed by the incredible amount of support and enthusiasm there was out there for the entire ICEHOUSE catalogue. Many of the requests for what to put out next focused around some of the compilations we had released in the past.

“I looked at the past sets and realised that there had never been a collection of every single we’d ever released throughout the history of the band nor a DVD compilation of every clip so that’s what we decided to do. Our criteria for the inclusion of tracks was that they had to have been released somewhere in the World as a single AND have had a clip made for them (in a couple of cases, two clips!).

“Now that is all together, I’m truly excited about releasing an album with these songs that fans have loved over the years and which were the focus of the different albums. This will be the first time that the majority of these recordings will be available to be legitimately downloaded through iTunes and other digital retailers as well a 3-disc packaging in retail stores. It is great that people who may only know ICEHOUSE by one or two of the songs will be able to explore the other recordings as well.

“The DVD of all the clips brought back many memories of all the people who participated in ICEHOUSE’s success and is a fun look over the past 30 years of music and video making for me.

“I hope everyone enjoys having all our Hits in one place at long last”.
