Fans ready to do some reminiscing at the Pilbeam Theatre

TWO Australian music icons have reunited, and are headed to Central Queensland.

Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd started an Australian tour in 2013 and it has proved a massive success with sellout shows and rave reviews.

They are on the road again with eight exclusive shows along the Queensland coast starting in Cairns on June 25, followed by Townsville, Mackay, Rockhampton, Maryborough, Bundaberg, Nambour and finishing in Caloundra on July 4.

Fans can expect to be taken back in time with a smorgasbord of timeless smash hits from their past supergroups The Twilights, The Groop, The Bootleg Family, Axiom and Little River Band.

Shorrock and Cadd are Australian musical icons, both known for their incredible song-writing and performing talents.

They first collaborated in 1969 when they formed Axiom, an Australian "supergroup" designed to take on the English market.

Through Axiom they had huge Australian hits including Arkansas Grass, A Little Ray Of Sunshine and My Baby's Gone.

Along with his success with The Groop, Cadd has penned songs for Joe Cocker, Ringo Starr and many more.

Shorrock is best known as part of the internationally acclaimed Little River Band and mega hits including Reminiscing and the classic Cool Change.

On the collaboration, Cadd says they have been mates since they were little more than kids.

"Musically we just always seemed to click and our voices have a most unique sound together," Cadd said.

"We've certainly been on all the rides and every step and adventure has been laced with humour and fun.

"It happened all during the recording sessions and I'm certain will continue on the road.

"The status remains very much quo.

"In recent times Brian and I talked about a reformation of Axiom which was a fairly brief but wonderful part of our musical lives...and which spring - boarded us both into the international music scene".
