Paul McDermott and Gatesy Go Solo in Sydney

Songs of beauty, songs of heartbreak, freshly-minted comedy concoctions, old squabbles and spontaneous nonsense. Two of Australia’s most adored singer-songwriters lock harmonies and minds in one unmissable show. Paul McDermott (Doug Anthony All Stars) and Steven Gates (Tripod) have been friends for 18 years, and singing together in private for five years. It’s time for them to share. 

In the lead up to this weekend's highly anticipated Melbourne International Comedy Festival performances at the Melbourne Recital Centre, the boys have announced they will bring their Paul McDermott & Gatesy Go Solo show to the City Recital Hall in Sydney next on Saturday 20th July.

Pre-sale is open here, with tickets officially going on sale to the public on Monday 15th April.

Best known as the middle-men of two of Australia’s greatest musical-comedy trios, McDermott and Gates made their official debut as a musical duo at a one-off event at the 2017 Ballarat Cabaret Festival. That one-off spawned a sequel with a sold-out show at this year’s Adelaide Fringe Festival, and subsequent performances before thousands of people at the Port Fairy and Woodford Folk Festivals. The poetry of their lyrics and the beauty of their voices have enthralled audiences, with demands for further shows coming from all corners of Australia. 

Don't miss the chance to see these two extraordinary talents, together at last. 

Paul McDermott & Gatesy Go Solo in Sydney: Saturday 20th July (8pm) City Recital Hall, 2 Angel Place, Sydney NSW
