Liam Griffin celebrates the hits of Silverchair in
‘Wait ‘til Tomorrow: A Tribute to Silverchair’ at Adelaide Fringe
Silverchair are arguably one of the most successful Australian bands of all time. The stats speak for themselves: 21 ARIA Wins from 49 nominations, five albums all of which debuted at No 1 and over 10 million global record sales, and that’s just scraping the surface.
Armed with his electric and acoustic guitars, stomp box and a microphone, Sunshine Coast singer-songwriter, Liam Griffin, will debut his brand new show titled “Wait ‘til Tomorrow: A Tribute to Silverchair” at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2023. Liam will present a nostalgic journey that captures the emotional and lyrical intricacies of Silverchair’s extensive material from all stages of the trio’s career, from the grunge-laden riffs and emotional turmoil of albums ‘Frogstomp’, ‘Freak Show’, ‘Neon Ballroom’, and ‘Diorama’, to the vibrant progressive pop of Silverchair’s final record, ‘Young Modern’, before they announced an indefinite hiatus.
The show will include the hit gems: Tomorrow, Freak, Without You, Ana’s Song (Open Fire), Reflections of a Sound, and Straight Lines as well as some of the in-between, and after learning the news that Silverchair would never reform, Liam’s tribute is likely to be one of the only ways to hear these songs played live again.
Liam is a seasoned performer, and since 2005, he has independently released a string of EP’s and albums with his debut LP ‘Between the Colours’ drawing critical acclaim that made comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Eskimo Joe, Crowded House and The Beatles. A QMusic Awards Pop Category finalist in 2011 with single ‘A Distant Memory’, Liam has toured throughout Australia, and other parts of the world including Canada, and opened for the likes of Kate Miller-Heidke, Gin Wigmore, Paul Greene, Bobby Flynn… to name a few.
