Boom Crash Opera Sets First Dates With New Singer Andrew De Silva

Boom Crash Opera will take to the road for the first time with new singer Andrew De Silva in June.

De Silva, formerly of CBD, joined the band following the departure of original singer Dale Ryder in 2015.

Boom Crash Opera had to decide if they would continue after Ryder left. “We struggled with the idea, but the impetus to go on and still be a recording artist, was stronger than merely being a heritage act (not that there’s anything wrong with that)” Maz said. “We approached a few singers with an ‘expression of interest’ and Andy was keen and fitted the mould”.

De Silva was an original member of CDB and generated a string of hits in the 90s including ‘Hook Me Up’, ‘Hey Girl’, ‘Lets Groove’, ‘Don’t Stop’ and ‘Good Times’.

Boom Crash Opera where one of Australia’s most successful acts in the 80s and 90s with hits like ‘Great Wall’, ‘Hands Up In The Air’, ‘Her Charity’, ‘Onion Skin’, ‘Get Out Of The House’, ‘Dancing In The Storm’, ‘Talk About It’ and ‘Gimme’.
