Jon Stevens and Icehouse Back To Back Deliver 24 Songs Everyone Knows At One Electric Day

One of the great things about Duane McDonald’s One Electric Day is the concentration of Classic Australian rock.

If Boom Crash Opera, followed by Mark Seymour, followed by Daryl Braithwaite, followed by Missy Higgins wasn’t enough hits for you, then Jon Stevens and Icehouse back to back played 24 songs everyone knew back to back between 4:35pm and 7:15pm.

When Jon Stevens is solo he played both Noiseworks and INXS. When INXS decided to reform and tour again after the death of Michael Hutchence in 1997 it was Jon Stevens they chose to lead them from 2000 to 2003. Jon knows the INXS catalogue back to front and delivers INXS songs with the same passion as his Noiseworks hits.

Most Icehouse hits covered the 1980s from start to finish. ‘Miss Divine’, from the 1990 album ‘Code Blue’, was the newest song Icehouse performed at One Electric Day. Every Icehouse hit fell between May 1980 and September 1990 in Australia so for a majority of One Electric Day punters this setlist was a soundtrack to their youth.

Icehouse had 18 Top 40 hits in Australia over those 10 years. They played 12 of those plus a tribute to the Australian band they admired as they were breaking, The Angels ‘Marseilles’.
