Bodyheat to steam up Bundaberg
LADIES, it is about to get hot at the Moncrieff Theatre.
Washboard abs, costumes and music from the past four decades will all be on show when the four guys from Bodyheat perform in Bundaberg next Wednesday as part of the Unzip Tour.
Bodyheat manager John Rossie said it was the first time the boys had gotten down and dirty in Bundaberg but they were looking forward to the challenge.
“Regional audiences are usually pretty good and get into it quite a bit,” he said.
“The city gets a lot of things like that so they do not get as excited as the girls do in regional areas.”
Apart from enthusiastic audiences, Rossie said the group was enjoying the time on the road.
“Its fun, you get to meet a lot of people and get to taste a lot of food,” he said.
“We had crocodile in Darwin and the boys reckon that tasted a bit like chicken.”
The group has been on the road in Australia for the past four months after returning from shows in Vegas and New Zealand.
Those trips have given the four strippers a chance to hone their skills with a few tricks.
“One of the guys does flame throwing and one of the others does acrobatics,” he said.
Those tricks, paired with a number of costumes, have created a wide appeal for the show.
“The oldest we've had there was about 70 but we do get a bit of a mixed bag across all different ages,” he said.
“It really is a great night out for the girls.”
But the boys should not feel left out.
“We have had a few guys in the audience on a few occasions but we never get very many,” Rossie said.
The two hour show also has a bit of audience interaction.
“We do have a number of prizes up for grabs during the show,” he said.
“We can't say too much now but they will be available.
Tickets for the show are available through the Moncrieff Theatre.
The show starts at 8pm on Wednesday, October 13.
