2001. Gold coast supporting Paul Rogers and Alice Cooper. A night that changed my life.

Would have been Greenfield tavern back in 83. I was pumped so much energy you guys always had everywhere you played pumping. We used to drive all over to see you guys from fairfield as far as cronulla workers. One gig at parra leagues is still to this day the only gig i have seen the lights turned on after 2 encores. The crowd still chanting for 10 minutes and you guys came back for 1 more song. You guys at the best. Some of my greatest memories.

The Family Inn Pub at Rydalmere in 1983 I was 16. Oops. The good days with a fake birth certificate. I even remember what I wore. I had this black t-shirt on and wore it back to front as it had cut outs on it. I remember the bouncer looking at my boobs and just waved me in. Didn't drink of course I was under age. I was front row, this was the first of 100s of Rads Concerts

Blacktown showgrounds 1979. Swanee and Jo Jo Zep were also on the bill. The next time was a few months later Concert of the Decade at Sydney Opera House. Rads, Mi Sex and Mental as Anything did a set each before all the big acts of the 70s did their big hits. That was a great day.

1984 at Castle Hill RSL. My Dad took myself and my bestie Lynn, we were 15. Dad got us in with lots of fast talking. Best night of our 15 year old lives. Can’t count how many times we have seen them since then.

Last year Souths Juniors awesome night, didn’t get home til the next morning πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‰

Avoca Hotel, nov/dec 1981. I was away with girlfriends celebrating end of year 12. They were awesome. My first live band ever. I was hooked from then on.

St George’s Basin Country Club through the windows as a young 16 year old around 1983. Luckily got their autographs at the back door and still have them. Great memories πŸ€—πŸ€—

Too many times but I’m thinking Caringbah Inn mid 80’s. If only we could go back to the best era of pub music in this country. I feel lucky I was there and have the memories 🀘😎😎

First time was at Smithfield Rsl. The good old days. Early 2000’s, Clubs are not like they used to be when it comes to bands. Saw so many awesome bands and covers there.

β€˜81 at the Bexley North Hotel. Still remember The Divinyls were supporting that night. Good times.

Shellharbour workers club and have loved them ever since. ☺️ i was 17........ and now wish I wasπŸ˜›..... see what I did there?🀣

JJ live at the wireless, Fairfield Cobweb disco. 1978 pretty sure. We must have been there early. Geoff, and the boys, chilin' up the back of the room asked for a lite.

Parra Leagues and Tracks Epping Hotel Mid 80’s Iconic Aussie Band. Great work

The Playroom. I went with a girl from my after school job, who was the one who first played their music to me. It was Aug or Sept 1981. I was nearly 16.

Homestead Hotel north Brisbane. Not sure of the year but probably not long after Feel the Heat album came out. I remember Geoff getting off stage once and punching a guy who spat on him. Bouncers dragged that prick out.

Opera House Concert of the decade, followed you to RSLs Workers Clubs , Pubs and Leagues Clubs all over the suburbs. Still do more recently on Rock The Boat and The Longley Hotel! I'm a Rads groupie from way backπŸ˜‚

I was to pissed to remember where but I remember seeing them somewhere in the 80's. 80's memory is a bit dusty...

Parramatta leagues club kicks nightclub in the 80’s upstairs and very underaged 😜😜 all us girls got on stage a couple of times too.

Im thinking late 80's Ingleburn RSL. Loved it! Not many people there though..... this night started my rads gig journey, still love the gigs after all these years, counting the minutes till the next one. Come back to Ctown area guys ❀❀❀❀❀

When I was in primary school u guys use to play in a garage next door to the school...I sat next to the wall listening...but when u were well known I was 15 and saw u at Castle Hill RSL

1984 Power Jam at Bankstown man it was good line up as I remember if wrong I’m sure someone will correct me. The expression the church and rads then the angels Doc climbed the speaker stack. Great gig. For my mates and myself the rads were the best I had never head music like that it touched the Westie in us. The rads are the most watch band the we have seen. ROCK ON DUDES AND DUDETS 😎😎😎🎸🎸🎸

Cant remember maybe Gladesville or Manly Vale?? Saw you guys so many times - Balmain Leagues, Cabramatta - we travelled a lot to see you!!

Bombay Rock in surfers 1983

Working with you on and off from 1999 to 2003. Always enjoyed your amazing live shows and it was a privilege to get to cut our teeth on the big crowds that came to see you. Need to get to a show again soon! Cheers, Robbie Steffen (prev. Cherrypickers) πŸ€™

Wow, wow, and wow... ok..that sums up our 3 shows over the weekend!!!

It’s hard to put into words how good it was to be in front of packed gigs full of punters .. standing, dancing, rubbing shoulder to shoulder, singing loudly, sweating, yelling out encouragement.. Aah a trip back in time .. well at least to a year ago almost to the day ! We have so missed the immediacy, the connection that you can’t quite replicate at sit down/ behave yourself/ fkn Covid shows.😩. Even though we’ve done a couple of good ones, you sorta almost forget just how fantastic it is to be able to perform to unrestricted audiences.

Even our first gig in Kingscliff ( NSW.. 15 minutes to the border)... started mild, ended wild. Thanks to the kind management who released the handbrake two-thirds of the way through our set and let the grateful crowd rip it up on the floor.

Up in Qld at the Beenleigh Tavern on Friday night and Saturday at Kings Beach in Caloundra, it was absolutely pumpin’ !! Three out of three sold-out gigs shows just how much everyone is hanging out for a return to live music as we all remember it!

Our thanks go out to everybody who showed up our performances and made us feel so welcome. You guys and girls lifted us up and made us work hard. We loved it!

Our thanks also go to the management and staff at all three venues. They all couldn’t do enough for us really,and their hospitality and generosity was much appreciated by Band and Crew.

Our special thanks go out also to our fabulous support band at all 3 shows, the mighty Evil/Twin. These guys absolutely carve up and set the mood in the room. Well done boys! Love ya work.πŸ‘

Looking forward to getting up for more shows in Qld soon .. there’s a whisper about April .. so we’ll keep our fingers crossed 🀞.....

Thanks again All! Until next time , Cheers and beers, The Radiators 😎😎😎😎

PS: Nice shot by Glenn Morris of Mark having way too much fun!!!! Thanks Glenn

My scream of the real shirt was a great favourite but it fell apart many years ago. Note - Not from poor quality,from overuse haha

Brilliant show at the Beenleigh tavern on the weekend, made our year πŸ˜‹

Ricky Collins was this taken at Bateau Bay htl?

I NEED AN INNER WEST RADS GIG😩

AWESOME πŸ‘πŸΌ

I think Marie's was customised. Maybe do a style similar to that . Great gig that one by the way πŸ‘πŸ»

Sorry, all mine are in storage at the moment. Had a great one Beagle sold me at Bankstown RSL in the late '80's. It was the night I put it on and jumped on stage and made a run for Brian, and went for a 6er πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I had a scream of the real shirt back in the day which was white and remember the gimme head shirt, I never saw a shirt for You have the right to remain silent, All 3 of these would be Awesome in black with old tour dates or even 2021 tour dates on the back \m/

Thank you for the great show last night!!! We had a ball. Hope to see you guys back soon! πŸ€˜πŸ€˜πŸ€˜πŸ€˜πŸ’œ

Gimme live shirt, bring on the crazy shirt and hard core long sleeve tops πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

How about this one

You'll have to come to Glen Innes so I can buy 1, hint hint

I could of sold heaps of shirts last night. When people asked where I got mine, I referred them to the website.

What about a new one with the guys printed autographs on the back and a Rad's name logo on the front?

Rockin that t shirt Marie Grace 😎😘

Hey man I played after you Guys in Gladstone a couple of years ago, and hung out after, Im back there again this weekend, but you are coming to our region in May for a festival, can you tell the pub near the Venue to book my band for the after party!!!

I first heard you guys on the school bus many moons ago, they were all singing top of their lungs, i asked the older kids, what do they mean give me head !!!!. Rads taught me something. Angels taught me something. And mentals taught me something. Thanks guys, all of you true rocking pub bands. Thanks for every memory.

Yay!!!!! Can’t wait to see you guys tomorrow night....I’m pumped and ready to rock 🀘🏻❀️

I'm sad I missed out on getting any tickets. I hope everyone that goes to your shows has a mighty blast πŸ˜₯πŸ˜₯

I love the album Scream of the Real, wish it was available on CD 🍻

Must admit usually bands from the 80’s do a comeback and sound like absolute shit 😒 But.... I saw the rads live a couple of years ago omg took me back to my adolescence and they sound exactly the same! Keep up the good work guys and get your arses back down the south coast 😎

Get out there & knock 'em dead above all relish the moment stay safe

β€œOzzy, Ozzy, Ozzy”... ( u gotta love Black Sabbath 😜)... but it was also the call that echoed out at our pre Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί Day gig at the fabulous Toronto Pub on Monday evening. What a great set up there and it shows what can be achieved for live music in this unfortunate current Covid climate.

The pub is blessed with a massive open area and a professional management and staff. They ensured everything ran safely and smoothly and it really was a fantastic way to kick off our very first show of 2021! Thanks so much to everyone who rolled up and made us feel so welcome. Apparently it was a sell out, so we were really chuffed.

So much fun to perform for such a generous and appreciative crowd,in such a beautiful sunset setting on the edge of Lake Macquarie.

We await news from Qld Government next ,to see if our Shows there can go ahead as advertised. Fingers crossed but ..knowing their record...😩!! We aren’t getting too excited unfortunately.. Let’s hope πŸ™πŸ€ž

Cheers and beers fellow Aussies

Hi Radsters ,

Geoff here..I just had a look at our socials for the first time in 2021. ( social media animal!!)πŸ˜„.. Well, there hasn’t been much to talk about in all reality unfortunately! Same old closed borders shit threatening our little Qld run in February and a tightening of social distancing and crowd numbers in venues . 😩.

We are gonna try and sneak over the border carrying tennis racquets and cricket bats instead of guitars and see if we can get away with that !!

However we do have our first show of the year coming up believe it or not!..and on a Monday night of all things. We are playing at the Toronto Hotel, (near Newcastle ) on the 25 th January,Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί Day Eve. So if you’re around that area , and up for a bit of live music at all , please come along and let’s make some noise together. (Covid safe of course πŸ™„) It’ll be fun to have a blast again. I also want to personally thank all the people who took the time to wish me a Happy Birthday on December 30. I’ve just seen all of the nice comments and best wishes and I’m very grateful. Much appreciated ! πŸ‘

Will have news on our Feb Qld shows shortly and hope we can somehow swing em’. Will keep ya posted.

Thanks again good people.
Cheers 🍻 Geoff T.😎

We all love you Geoff, you are such a classic. Would love to see you all jump the border in disguises πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. How funny.

***Saturday night saw us venturing down to Wollongong, to play our part in the β€œHot Summer Night β€œ concert at the magnificent Win Entertainment Centre. Along with The Choirboys, Wendy Matthews, Dragon, Richard Clapton and Thirsty Merc, it was great to be back on a really big concert stage again. It wasn’t massive, but a reasonable crowd( ..considering Covid and Xmas.. ) was in attendance. They certainly made the Rads feel welcome and our thanks goes out to the locals for their encouragement and support during our set. We did a half-hour, which included Summer Holiday, No Tragedy, Diamonds, Life’s a Gamble, Gimme Head, 17 and Comin’ Home. (What we christened our Super 7!)πŸ˜„

The half-hour flew by and felt like 5 minutes. Time flies when you’re having fun ..and fun it certainly was! Gigs have been few and far between unfortunately in 2020, so we relished the chance to stretch out on the huge stage. With fantastic production and amazing lighting, it was a great way to finish off this pretty disappointing year.

Hopefully it will be onwards and upwards in 2021 ..and the scene returning to some semblance of Rock n Roll normality!!

Merry Xmas to all our loyal and unbelievable fans and supporters. Thanks for everything you do! We would be nothing without you guys n gals.
Cheers and Beers ( with Tequila shots)😜...

Hi Geoff, Brian, Brent & Mark, What a fabulous way to end this shocker year with a massive gig, up in lights and your 'Super 7' - love it 😍😍😍 Sooooo happy to see you on that stage. You owned it as always. Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, stay well and happy (on Tequila 😊). Praying next year will see you booked out in every state rather than locked out. Hope to get there in 2021. Lots of love β™₯πŸ™ P. S. Sensational photography by Greg 😊

Have a wonderful Christmas to you & your families & a safe Happy New Year, may 2021 be a great year for all ❀

Merry Xmas Brent Brian Geoff & Mark & your familes hope you have a good one xxx

I had sooo much fun !! Nothing like singing (very loudly!) to coming home. Love it !!! I will never get tired of seeing the rads live on stage.

Stay safe and hope you all have a great ChrissyπŸŽ„. Can't wait to see you guys on the Goldy next year.

Merry Christmas Boys, can’t wait to see you again in 2021 πŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸ₯³

Merry Christmas πŸŽ„ to you all & A Happy Safe New Year xxxx

I hope you can still come to Beenleigh in Feb?? 😍

We missed it, so upsetting as we had planned an awesome weekend away, due to covid restrictions on the NB, it was all canned. Merry Xmas and let’s hope we can rock on in 2021πŸ™

It was a brilliant gig! Especially after such a long hiatus. Next time make it a super 8 and include Hit and Run please.

I would have loved to have been at this show ,oh well .. Hopefully you can come back to Woolgoolga 2021 looking forward to seeing you all again ...Merry Christmas guys ,stay safe ....B...

In 2020 , two gigs in a row constitutes a Tour we reckon! So as we slumped in our dressing room after an exhausting and punishing schedule, there were high fives all around and much relief and merriment. We had embarked on this grueling journey way back on ...well ...Friday night... at the Terry Hills Tavern and finally wrapping up the Tour ..the next night at Taren Point Hotel ! M

Such is the pathetic state of the live entertainment scene this year, we guess we should be thankful for small mercies . It truly was great though to be able to stretch out and play mind you. Even if everyone in the audience had to sit down and behave themselves it was still fun !

We absolutely thank all those hardy guys n gals that turned up at both shows to show their genuine and generous support and appreciation for live music and the Rads. The atmosphere at both gigs was far from sterile fortunately and we think the band and audience combined really well to make the most of what is quite restrictive conditions.
Well done all πŸ‘
Good on yas and roll on 2021.

Love you guys, come tour the Gold Coast soon, border is open 🎢πŸ₯πŸŽΈπŸŽ€

No tragedy....oh oh ! Nothing can keep the rads ( & us old followers) down!!!

and ... Brent is 'still' smiling way too much in the back like that. 😁 I hope life is treating you well Brent, and it's great to know The Rads are gigging again. 2020 has been a strange year. Rock on gents, and welcome back.πŸ‘

North Queensland tour please Mackay is waiting though I've seen the band in every venue in Sydney since the 80s

Remember the days at the Comb and Cutter.(kerb and gutter)

Would love to see you back in Townsville.

Can’t wait to see you in February! 🎸

Back to Bargo we think

Geez Boyz! Hike up to Brisvegas ... we've been dancing and prancing for a while now - we'd all love to see you!!! #successfulrestrictions

Now the borders are open we may get to see you again in qld. Can’t wait.

Thanks Guys we saw ur last one at the Cattle Dog and now Panania and Taren Point. Awesome just Awesome. ITs not the same standing up the front but one day we get back there.

May be an odd question.., but Did you rehearse for those 2 shows or just auto piloted? I’m assuming the latter but thought I’d ask regardless.. πŸ€”πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Hope to see you again in Canberra soon!

Bring on Beenleigh tavern!! I’m so keen! πŸ‘Œ

Hope you come back to edgeworth sports and recreation club πŸ’™πŸ’™

***Thanks!!!!

Believe it or not! The Rads did a gig on Saturday night! 😳..When we walked off the stage at the Blue Cattle Dog pub, on the last day of Summer, the 29th February, this year, little did we know what was about to unfold. Within a week or so, we had lost all of our bookings for the foreseeable future. Dozens and dozens and dozens of shows, gone from our 2020 Gig diary in a Covid generated Tsunami. An uncertain time fell over everyone and everything and unfortunately, the Music Industry was smashed as hard,or harder than just about anything. Being deemed β€œnon-essential β€œ, there was little we could do but suck it up and hang in there. 😩

Well thanks to a NSW Government initiative, the doors to hundreds of gigs have been flung open( for November at least ) and live music can once more be heard rattling the glasses at Pubs and Clubs again!

So it was certainly exciting for us to be able to jump back up on stage, just about a week shy of another Summer. Our thanks go to the management of Panania Diggers Club for taking a risk and putting us on. They were rewarded with a very well behaved bunch of enthusiastic Rads tragics turning up. It was a sell-out and although they had to cap the number to 100 punters, it sounded like a 1000 people cheering when hit the stage. What a buzz!! So great to be back.. and so thankful for you good people for coming along and making us feel so goddam welcome and special. We weren’t too rusty thankfully,and judging by the reaction to every song, the band was certainly hitting the mark πŸ˜„πŸ‘. The vibe was a bit β€œLas Vegas β€œ with everyone having to remain seated ..but was there was much Chair rockin’ and table banging and loud singalongs to make up for it, turning it into a memorable and fun night nonetheless!

Great to be back. Hopefully it’s onwards and upwards from here. Cheers and beers,
