Kip Winger (acoustic) and Tony Harnell will be performing at Arkaba Bar, Adelaide on Tuesday March 10.

After starting out as the unofficial house band at the infamous Whisky A Go-Go club in Las Angeles, XYZ released debut album Enigma in 1989 which featured the songs Inside Out and What Keeps Me Loving You. After a less than favourable reaction to that and its follow up Hungry, XYZ disbanded for several years before returning with Letter to God in 2003. Since then the band has cemented their standing as one of the leading exponents of hard rock/glam, selling more than 2 million albums worldwide and touring with Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner, Soundgarden, Alice Cooper and Cheap Trick. They are a band with energy to burn and a strong desire to entertain and hit Melodic Rock Fest on their 20th Anniversary tour featuring the original line-up.
Formed in Sweden in 2002, Crazy Lixx had an early vision of bringing back 1980’s style hair metal. They have succeeded this and more over six albums, the most recent of which, Forever Wild (2019), was described as ten tracks of instant hair metal awesomeness. It perfectly captured the nostalgia of 80’s arena hard rock mixed with a bit of action movie themes, packed with impressive guitar solos, memorable hooks, catchy choruses, big drums and defining riffs.
