Skyhooks To Reform For Melbourne Show; No Singer Named

30 September 2015 | 4:10 pm | Staff Writer

Iconic band reunite.

Iconic Australian band Skyhooks are set to reform for a special one-off show in Melbourne next month, in support of the Rockwiz! Live Salutes ARIA Hall Of Fame national tour. 

The popular seventies rock group announced the news on their website, though a singer is yet to be named, following the tragic passing of the band's frontman, Graeme 'Shirley' Strachan who died in a helicopter crash in 2001. 

Later posting to the Skyhooks Facebook page, a statement read, "We know most of you saw this on the recent Rockwiz mailer."

"RocKwiz lore has it that the identities of guest artists are kept secret until they step out from behind the red velvet curtain and while we like to maintain this particular tradition, sometimes there are guests that are so unusual, so special, that it feels unfair to withhold information from our dedicated fans … we’d hate you to miss out! After Brian convinced Red Symons to appear on the panel at The Palais on Thursday October 8, talk turned to his other band mates joining him on stage to play. The only unresolved question ... who would sing???"

Tickets for the show in Melbourne on 8 October are available now via the Rockwiz website.
