Two decades on and 'Polyserena' is still one of the best Australian debut albums ever released...
Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Brisbane rockers george gifted us their brilliant debut album Polyserena? Now the band’s powerhouse siblings, Katie and Tyrone Noonan, are set to join forces this September and October to perform the legendary album in full.
The Polyserena 20th Anniversary celebration will showcase the extraordinary talents of Katie and Tyrone Noonan and their band – Brandon Mamata on guitar, Steele Chabau on bass, with Katie’s son Dexter Hurren on drums.
In the 20th year of our debut album Polyserena, it is very special to be back making music with my big bro Tyrone and my son Dexter. Our band started in the lounge room of my uni share house in early 1996 in Brisbane with 2 sets of siblings jamming together. My bro had just returned from living in Europe and I had just started uni. I was 18 – so only a little older than Dexter is now.KATIE NOONAN ON CELEBRATING POLYSERENA’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY
This album was the soundtrack of me becoming a woman and trying to find my place in the world. It’s funny how songs morph with time and they come to mean something different. That young Katie still has a lot to teach me and I look forward to singing her words on this special tour with my big bro and my first born son.

I’ve come to understand over time, that we were making healing music. It’s an honour to be able to present this body of work once again, especially to a new generation of music lovers who got to know our music through their older siblings or parents. As a longtime DJ and vinyl enthusiast, I am super excited that this album will now be available on double vinyl too.TYRONE NOONAN ON CELEBRATING POLYSERENA’S 20TH ANNIVERSARY
Debuting at #1 on the ARIA charts in 2002, Polyserena launched george onto the national stage, earning them six ARIA nominations that year – including for Album Of The Year and Best Group – and winning them the award for Breakthrough Artist – Album.

Get to know Ticketmaster’s Smart Queue
If you aren’t familiar with Smart Queue, it is Ticketmaster’s way of creating a clear and fair process for thousands of fans to buy tickets in a short space of time. Fans enter the virtual Waiting Room prior to onsale time before joining the Smart Queue – which acts as a ‘virtual line’, helping us protect you and your tickets in a more effective way.
The time you join the Waiting Room does not determine your place in the Smart Queue, so we recommend joining at least 10 minutes prior to the event going on sale.
When the sale begins, the Smart Queue will open and everyone in the Waiting Room is given a place in line. Those who did not join the Waiting Room will be placed at the end of the line.
- Sign in to your Ticketmaster account at least 10 minutes before joining the Waiting Room. This will speed up your purchase later.
- Confirm you have a valid form of payment in your account with current email and billing information. This will make checkout a breeze.
- Resist the urge to refresh. Your page will automatically refresh when you enter the Smart Queue.
- Keep an eye on the time! When it’s your turn, your spot will be held for 10 minutes to begin shopping.
- Just like before, tickets are always based on availability, demand, and are not guaranteed.
