Dragon - The Countdown Years Tour

Iconic rockers Dragon are hitting the road in 2016 to celebrate an Australian institution, Countdown. The Countdown Years national tour will celebrate the hits of the 1970s and take the band, who recently celebrated 40 years on the Australian and New Zealand music scenes, on an extensive run around the country. Well revered for their enigmatic live shows, this is an exceptional opportunity for audiences to revel in the best music of the 1970s as Dragon take them on a journey through hit after hit.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Dragon dominated the Australian music scene. Their live shows were unsurpassed and their notorious rock n roll outlaw lifestyle was well documented. Ever since then, they’ve continued to release hits, pack live music houses and create generations of new fans throughout New Zealand and Australia. In 1977, Dragon won Best New Group and in 1978 won the Outstanding Local Achievement award for the then Australian music awards TV Week King of Pop Awards. In July 2008, Dragon were again recognised by their adoptive country when they were inducted into the Australian ARIA Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.

Dragon will perform two sets on The Countdown Years tour. The first set will be covers of the band’s favourite Top 10 Aussie hits from the 1970s, and the second set – ‘The Dragon Countdown Files’ - will feature the band’s own songs which were performed on Countdown. Just some of the songs in the band’s Top 10 are set to include tracks such as Summer Love by Sherbet, Bad Boy by Rose Tattoo and Yesterday’s Hero by JPY, to name a few. Dragon hits that have made it into the setlist include Still In Love, Dreams of Ordinary Men, April Sun in Cuba, Rain and Young Years. The evening will finish off in fitting style with an encore of the band’s own Are You Old Enough and a homage to the era, a cover of Skyhooks Living In The 70s.
