Keays will open for The Pretty Thing first Australian show in Melbourne on December 4.

The legendary Pretty Things features Dick Taylor, an original member of The Rolling Stones.

Keays was the lead singer of “Australia’s Rolling Stones’ The Masters Apprenctices and topped Australian charts with ‘Turn Up The Radio’ and ‘Because I Love You’.

His latest album ‘Dirty Dirty’ is a collection of garage rock covers.

The Pretty Things can claim to have recorded the very first rock opera ‘S.F. Sorrow’. In the 70s, David Bowie covered two of their songs ‘Rosalyn’ and ‘Don’t Bring Me Down’ for his ‘Pin-Ups’ album.
