Brisbane’s powerhouse musical siblings, revered singer-songwriters Katie and Tyrone Noonan, will join forces this September and October to perform the legendary george album Polyserena live, which celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year.

The tour kicks off in Newcastle at Civic Theatre on September 16, followed by Melbourne Recital Theatre on September 23, Canberra’s The Playhouse on September 24, The Gov Adelaide on October 1, Anita’s Theatre Wollongong on October 7, ending with a massive show at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on October 8. For the Polyserena 20th Anniversary Celebration Katie and Tyrone Noonan will be joined by Brandon Mamata on guitar, Steele Chabau on bass and Katie’s son Dexter Hurren on drums.

Katie said in a statement, “In the 20th year of our debut album Polyserena, it is very special to be back making music with my big bro Tyrone and my son Dexter. Our band started in the lounge room of my uni share house in early 1996 in Brisbane with 2 sets of siblings jamming together. My bro had just returned from living in Europe and I had just started uni. I was 18 - so only a little older than Dexter is now.”

“26 years later to be celebrating our debut album with my 17-year-old son and 2 wonderful young musicians - Brandon Mamata on guitars and Steele Chabau on bass, feels like a wonderful full-circle moment with multiple generations sharing music together.” 

Tyrone Noonan added, ”It’s been awesome to watch my nephew Dexter develop as a musician, it’s fantastic that we are now working together to help bring this album to life for this special anniversary, along with brilliant QLD musicians Steele Chabau and Brandon Mamata.”

“Family is so important. I have such a special relationship with my nephews and my brother-in-law, and my dear sister and I have been on an incredible musical journey together that most siblings would never attempt to undertake, and we are lucky enough to be stronger and closer for it! And you’d also be hard-pressed to find any prouder and more excited parents/grandparents about this anniversary celebration than our Mum and Dad!”

Live Nation members will get the first pick of tickets first during an exclusive pre-sale which is open now, Tickets for all shows go on sale at 11am, Thursday 7 July. Get all the ticket and show info at

Debuting at #1 on the ARIA charts in 2002, the album launched george onto the national stage, earning them six ARIA nominations that year, including for Album Of The Year. They became only the tenth Australian band in history to debut at number one upon release, with Polyserena achieving gold status in just ten days, platinum status within three weeks and, by the end of 2002, it was a double-platinum album.
