It’s 2001, you’re driving home from work, flicking through the radio stations, and Five Star Laundry by Motor Ace is being played on triple j, Triple M and a bunch of other stations in between. Then, as you walk in the door, the television is blaring and it’s Motor Ace again, with their iconic track Death Defy reaching an even wider audience as the theme song for the beloved Australian television series The Secret Life Of Us. And you probably caught them performing at the ARIAS and across all the various shows on tv at that time too, that was what it was like during the peak of Motor Ace – absolute saturation, and even then people couldn’t get enough.

Fast forward almost two decades and Motor Ace’s hoardes of fans no longer have to wait for that highly anticipated reunion, because in March and April of 2019, the band we all love will embark on a national tour to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the band’s inception, kicking off in Adelaide at The Gov on March 29, then moving through Perth, Sydney, and finishing up in Melbourne at the renowned venue 170 Russell on April 12.

Since disbanding all those years ago, the Motor Ace boys have been up to all those regular ‘life’ things – Pat has two kids and works for Aesop, Dave has three kids and one on the way, and is working offshore on an oil rig, Damo has a daughter and is running successful music company 123 Agency, and Matt has two kids and is a communications manager for Yarra Valley Water. But for what’s set to be an amazing few weeks of shows, the band are back together just like the good old days – although, in true Damo form, he jokes that a little stamina training might be in order this time around – “If I get to the end of the show and I am still alive it will be a miracle. I am currently in training – send in all fitness tips!”

Motor Ace is Patrick Robertson (vocals, guitar), Dave Ong (guitar), Damo Costin (drums) and Matt Balfe (bass).

Tickets to Motor Ace 20th Anniversary – A Five Star Reunion tour are on sale now.

MEET AND GREET PACKAGE INCLUDES: Join the band for a pre-show hang out. The band will have a Q&A session and give fans a chance to ask all things Motor Ace, with signed poster and drinks. This will go for around an hour and give fans a chance to reconnect again
