Rock Stars

It was announced last week that Cairns would be hosting two huge events this year.  Midnight Oil will be re-uniting and kicking off their Australian tour at Kuranda where they started their musical journey and the even bigger news that Sir Elton John will be performing in Cairns!  What a huge feather in the cap for North Queensland!  It seems like Queensland is the place to tour with Adele playing two concerts in Brisbane this weekend (Adele, if you're reading this how about coming to North Queensland too!).
On Thursday night we went along to Suzi Quatro's Leather Forever  concert at the Entertainment Centre in Cairns.  What a legend this woman is and she proves that age is just a number.  Her voice is just as strong as ever and she certainly worked the audience.  No one stayed in their seats (except maybe, my husband😗) as we danced to "48 crash", "can the can" and "devil gate drive" to name just a few.  Suzi started her show with her new band - QSP - Suzi Quatro,  Andy Scott (The Sweet) , Don Powell (Slade).  They played a rendition of Bob Dylan's "Just like a woman" and Status Quo "Price of Love" that were just fabulous.  I am going to download this album!
Dr. Suzi Quatro, at age 66, is a legend and I love her quote:

 "I will retire when I go onstage, wiggle my ass, and there is silence".

Before the show we had dinner at Mondo's.  It is one of my favourite places to eat with its laid back relaxed atmosphere right on the waterfront at Trinity Inlet.  Philip settled on Caesar Salad with Calamari and I ordered the Roasted Tomato and Feta Tart and of course we can never sit down to a meal without "fries-on-the-side"!  So very delicious.
