Iconic South Australian First Nations band, No Fixed Address played to a rapturous house at Her Majesty’s Theatre last week, as part of their national tour and during Adelaide Festival Centre’s OUR MOB program. The band was asked to sign the historic Her Majesty’s Theatre signature wall located backstage, which was carefully taken down piece by piece and re-built brick by brick in the 2021 redevelopment of the iconic Her Majesty’s Theatre.  

No Fixed Address and their signatures join a list of famous performers and visiting stars to Her Majesty’s Theatre who have signed the wall, including Julie Anthony, Rowan Atkinson, Lauren Bacall and Archie Roach to name a few. 

The celebrated rock band formed in 1979 at The University of Adelaide’s Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music and went on to tour with iconic Australian musicians, Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil and INXS. They were the very first First Nations band from Australia to perform overseas and play on Countdown.  

The famous signature wall is a fan favourite stop on the Her Majesty’s Theatre tour. The tours are back by popular demand with limited dates available for October.  Book in here

Her Majesty’s Theatre’s Ian & Pamela Wall Gallery is also home to the No Fixed Address Exhibition until 12 November 2023. The exhibition follows the band from their humble beginnings to their famous powerful performance at the Festival of Political Song in East Berlin.  

Their rock n’ reggae sound, with truth-telling lyrics made them a musical force in mainstream Australian music and a protest voice for Aboriginal lands rights and cultural recognition, blowing up the spot for social injustice and inequality. Explore the exhibition on your next trip to Her Majesty's Theatre and see never before seen photographs and memorabilia.
