Following the reopening of the Empire Theatre Saturday evening, the Empire Strikes Back series continues July 25 with popular local group Cool Nights Big Band.

After previously selling out the seat allocation shortly after going on sale, more tickets have been released for Cool Nights Big Band due to the further easing of government restrictions.

The members of Cool Nights Big Band are “Still Standing” (albeit a little further apart than usual) and are excited to be back at the Emprie Theatre and making music together again.

This performance in pure Cool Nights style, promises to be an entertaining evening of live music featuring hits like ‘Don’t Stop Believing’, ‘Fever’, ‘I Will Survive’ and ‘Let Me Entertain You’.

The Empire Strikes Back series celebrates the safe reopening of the theatre to limited audiences following the closure period brought about by government restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The program began on Saturday 11 July with local rock band Project 62 and altpop duo The Beamish Brothers followed by chamber orchestra Camerata on July 17.

The next performance at the Empire Theatre is Homegrown Independents Program Drama Almost, Maine on July 30-31 followed by the weekly Empire Strikes Back series continuing  with musical theatre original performance Love Sick starring popular Toowoomba artists Justin Tamblyn and Shannon Gralow on August 1 and Country music artist, Mick Lindsay on August 8.

Social distancing requirements within the theatre will be adhered to.

The Empire Strikes Back series is now on sale via the Empire Theatres website, or at the Ticketing Office from Monday to Wednesday, 9am - 1pm.

This performance is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and the Empire Theatres Foundation Business Partner Greenridge Group.
