80s pop/rock sensation Uncanny X-Men original lineup reunite. They can’t wait to get back on the road and perform for their loyal fans. The idea was spawned from a handful of performances earlier this year, when they realized the magic was still there and, it was like they had never stopped performing together.
“We’re all fit and well and actually like each other so, this tour is going to be us at our best. Can’t wait to get back on the road with my ‘old mates’ and, we are all super excited to perform for our loyal fans again.” – John Kirk
Back in the 80’s there wasn’t a pop/rock radio station that didn’t play there smash charting hits ’50 Years’, ‘Everybody Wants To Work’ and ‘Party’. No. 3 ARIA charting album ‘Cos Life Hurts’ reached double platinum and ‘What You Give Is What You Get’ went Gold, cementing them on the pub rock scene.
Colorful and totally entertaining lead singer Brian Mannix is known for his stage antics and uncontrollable energy, reflecting their name derived from the Marvel comic book. Mannix has pursued a solo career including releasing two solo albums, performing in Absolutely 80’s Presents, theatre plays, movies (including Chopper with Eric Bana), TV, radio, written his 2nd autobiography, produced and staged ‘Countdown the Musical’. John Kirk (Bass) performs with several live bands on the Gold Coast, Chuck Hargreaves (Guitar) toured with Daryl Braithwaite in the 90s and continues to play with bands in Perth, Craig Waugh (drums) went on to Horsehead and Ron Thiessen (Guitar) still performs with ‘Lowdown Dirty Shame’.
After 30 years, the band released a new single called ‘Take it from Me’ on April 20, 2018, which is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
In 2019, they are older and wiser and the energy that is the X Men is still there!
