The exhilarating show features the full Bat Out of Hell album, plus classic songs by the master himself, Jim Steinman, then capped off with Chocolate Starfish hits.
Just as Chocolate Starfish put their own slant on Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, the ‘Fish approach each song with their trademark intensity and revelry that elevates the experience well beyond a tribute. With a nod to the original and a glint in their eyes, they imbue the songs with their signature flair and theatrics.
Lead singer Adam Thompson says that in revisiting the full album show, he hopes to share the impact the Bat Out of Hell album had on him with audiences.
Chocolate Starfish powered on to the Australian music scene in the early 1990s and quickly established themselves as an influential force with their cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”, original hit “Mountain” and perennial favourite “Four Letter Word”. They wholeheartedly earned their reputation as one of Australia’s best live bands of the 90s, boasting two top 10 albums and six top 50 singles and received an Australian Music Award for ‘Most Popular Album’ at the 1994 Australian Music Awards.
Twenty-nine years later, the band is living up to this reputation and then some as they continue to delight long-time fans and win over new ones. With a new album in tow and plenty of fuel in the tank, the ‘Fish show no signs of slowing down.
