Throwing Copper – Live UNPLUGGED
Celebrating the 20th Year Anniversary of LiVE’s ‘Throwing Copper’ Album and their MTV Unplugged Performance in 1995.
On the 19th April 1995, the US band appeared on the MTV Unplugged Show performed at The Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.
The Throwing Copper album (produced by Jerry Harrison) has gone on to sell well over 10 million copies and was number #1 in Australia, US, NZ and Canada with hits such as ‘Lightning Crashes’, ‘I Alone’, ‘All Over You’, ‘Selling The Drama’ plus many more.
Original front man Ed Kowalczyk left the band in 2009 and was reported to be sued by the remaining members over issues surrounding his departure. However, Ed has continued to release many solo albums and he tours extensively. Ed was last in Australia in November and performs the ‘Throwing Copper’ album both plugged & unplugged as well as his huge back catalogue. He currently releases all over the world to this day.
We are very pleased to bring this show to select venues across Australia and New Zealand.
“We present a new style of ‘tribute’ act but with a slick style and attention to detail. We are not pretending to be anyone or anything rather performing amazing music by passionate and exceptionally talented musicians…
This a one of those bands out of the 90’s that really struck a chord (no pun intended) and, well, we are all fans of this material and it’s a joy and an honour to be performing these amazing songs as a tribute”, says Chris Cooke.
