Dave Stewart w/ Guest Martina McBride at Two Old Hippies
FEB. 27th, 6-8P
Join producer, author, director, photographer, filmmaker, philanthropist Dave Stewart in conversation with country music star, Martina McBride, at his Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) book launch.
Stewart’s life has been filled with music, constant reinvention and the never-ending drive to create. Growing up in industrial northern England, he left home for the gritty London streets of the seventies, where he began collaborating and performing with various musicians, including a young waitress named Annie Lennox. The chemistry between Stewart and Lennox was undeniable, and an intense romance developed. While their passion proved too much offstage, they thrived musically and developed their own sound. They called themselves Eurythmics and launched into global stardom with the hugely successful album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).
In this, the memoirs of a true icon of the music industry, Stewart reveals the incredible stories from his career in music, including the drug-fuelled adventures, the A-list collaborations and relationships he formed and the secrets behind his creative process that brought blockbusters such as Here Comes the Rain Again and Would I Lie to You by Eurythmics and Golden Globe winner Old Habits Die Hard with Mick Jagger.
Martina McBride will ask the questions that give the audience a behind-the-scenes look at Stewart’s innovative endeavors that keep him on the cutting-edge of the music business. Sweet Dreams Are Made of This is a one-of-a-kind portrait of the creative heart of one the music industry’s most gifted and enterprising contributors.
The conversation will be followed by an intimate live performance with Dave Stewart joined by Australian artist, Jon Stevens.
