Niche Productions are continuing the excellence that saw them named our favourite touring company of 2008, with the announcement of Tony Allen’s first ever Australian shows. Known as the father of Afrobeat, Tony Allen is best known as the drummer of Fela Kuti’s Africa 7o, while Brian Eno has called him “perhaps the greatest drummer who ever lived”. So you’ll be in music royalty when he plays The Forum Friday 13 March. Get your tickets through Moshtix. More info at
