"Always poised to make a dominant impression on the entertainment circuit Something Like This stormed onto the scene with a ‘take no prisioners’ attitude. In less than 12 months they have captured the imagination of audiences which seldom sees them without bookings. A vital ingredient to their early success has been their appetite for performing live. Not afraid to travel, 2010 will see them perform in Perth, Melbourne and the NSW Snow Fields.
With a taste for the unpredictable expect them to unleash a cocktail of hits featuring Dragon, Rick Springfield, Van Morrison, Men at Work, Midnight Oil, John Cougar Mellencamp, Elvis, The Police, Choirboys and The Beatles.
