Growing up on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Choirboys formed in 1978 as a group of young twenty-somethings. Inspired by the wild, hedonistic lifestyle of youth in the 70s, the band created their seminal rock anthem, ‘Run To Paradise’.

Run To Paradise is a “spilling of the beans” of sorts. It’s part story, part song that chronicles some of the wildest, most risqué, outrageous, and downright hilarious stories of Australian Rock, as these Oz pub-rock icons recall it.

“Put it down to hearsay – it’s our opinion, it’s what we saw, it’s what people told us and most of it is extremely funny and incredibly interesting.”

Which movie star did the Divinyls bass player meet under a table at a nightclub? What were Chuck Berry’s weird work tactics? Were Deep Purple really responsible for Mark walking with a limp? And what happened to a pair of Iggy Pop’s pants?

Behind the narrative are the classic songs that defined the ’70s and ’80s, including Deep Purple’s ‘Smoke On The Water’, Chuck Berry’s ‘Never Can Tell’, TMG’s ‘Jump In My Car’, Dragon’s ‘Are You Old Enough’, AC/DC’s ‘Long Way To The Top’ and of course, Choirboys hits ‘Boys will Be Boys’, ‘Never Gonna Die’, ‘Struggletown’ and the pub-rock anthem, ‘Run to Paradise’, to name a few.


VIP Meet & Greet Tickets provide the exclusive opportunity to meet the Choirboys prior to the event between 7.00-7.30pm. Strictly limited to 20 patrons.
