Stephen Cummings returns to MEMO for one Melbourne show only to celebrate the release of his new album ‘100 Years from Now’. Stephen needs no introduction to Australian music fans – the Countdown Award and ARIA Award-winning singer and songwriter has had a long, productive, creative and distinguished career since his days up front of the Sports in the late ’70s and ’80s.

Stephen – together with some special guests – will feature material from the new album plus songs from his considerable back catalogue. His first-full band Melbourne show since his 2020 stroke, the evening promises inspiration, emotion and some unforgettable music.

‘100 Years from Now’ is a record of beauty, of humanity, and of unflinching honesty. And gorgeous musicality. Recorded and mixed with long-time collaborators guitarist and producer Robert Goodge (Essendon Airport and I’m Talking) and producer and engineer Simon Polinksi (Steve Kilbey, Ollie Olsen). After suffering a stroke in 2020 the album is a collection of co-writes that put Cummings’ post-stroke physical condition to the fore, both musically and lyrically.


“It’s got a different sound to what I normally do. It’s very dreamy with all the female harmonies and exotic string instruments Robert used like the tiples.”

“It’s one my favourite records I’ve made. I really like the mood and I loved having different people helping out like Lilith Lane and Glen and Philippa from the Underground Lovers. I’ve also known Wally Kempton for years, so I was really happy for Cheersquad to release it.”
