Just let the good times flow

IT’S going to get hot at the Albany Entertainment Centre on September 20, when platinum artists Justice Crew bound onto stage with their chart-topping smash hits and epic dance energy.

Albany is the first stop of Justice Crew’s Kicks On tour, after which the group will head to Bunbury, Perth, Geraldton and Esperance, before heading interstate.

Justice Crew shot to fame after taking the crown on Australia’s Got Talent in 2010.

Consisting of Lukas Bellesini, Paul Merciadez, John Pearce, Samson Smith and DJ Solo Tohi, the renowned Australian group has toured with Chris Brown, One Direction, Kesha and Pitbull.

The Kicks On tour will feature Justice Crew’s biggest hits and new material.

Boom Boom, Best Night, Everybody and Que Sera will be among the night’s setlist.

Justice Crew member Lukas Bellesini is excited to bring the tour down to Albany.

“It’s been a while since we’ve been out west and the fans have been patient, so we’ll make sure to hold a meet and greet post-show for everyone,” Bellesini said.

“We’ve also heard Albany has some great beaches close by, so I have a feeling we’ll be getting our tan on!”

Bellesini began his dancing career long before he got his hands on a microphone.

“I started dancing at the age of 11, was performing professionally in various hip hop and Latin dance shows by the age of 15, and began Justice Crew with the guys in 2009,” he said.

“The opportunity for music came along after we won Australia’s Got Talent.

“When we were offered a recording contract with Sony Music, we knew we had a great platform to expand our craft.”

The Justice Crew boys owe their audition success and consequential Australia’s Got Talent triumph to their loved ones.

“We were inspired to enter thanks to the encouragement and support we received from our family and friends,” Bellesini said.

“John’s mum was the one that suggested it – thanks Flora!”

Bellesini’s career highlight so far has been the Justice Crew five-week tour across America with Pitbull and Kesha.

“It was such an awesome trip,” he said.

“We learned so much, partied hard and had an absolute blast in a different city every night!”

Albany crowds can keep their fingers crossed for the reappearance of Bellesini’s famous dance move.

“The ‘Alien-boy’ is actually a break move called a ‘hollowback’,” he said.

“This is definitely one of my favourites.

“It always seems to please the crowd, or horrify them!”

Bellesini hopes young dancers and singers out there can follow in their idol’s footsteps and do their best, no matter what they want to pursue.

“Dream big, but don’t just dream about it, chase it!

“Nothing great comes easy, but with hard work, focus and determination, you can materialise those dreams.”

Tickets for the September 20 Justice Crew performance at the Albany Entertainment Centre can be purchased via the AEC Box Office or online at Ticketek.
