Australia’s own teenage
heart throb – often responsible
for fluttering hearts, drawing
screaming mobs, and making
girls drop like flies – is bound for
the Chaffey Theatre in October.
Teen rock star Reece Mastin, who
burst into the Australian conscious-
ness after winning 2011’s X Factor
series, will hit the theatre with his
Wolf in the Woods tour.
The tour will be Reece’s first major
trip across the country since 2012 –
something the English-born musician
admitted will involve “a lot of driving,
flying and probably late nights”.
“It will be my first time there (in
the Riverland),” he said.
“That’s one of the cool things
about this run, there’s a bunch of plac-
es on the list that I’ve never been to
Unlike many reality TV stars,
Reece has managed to stay in the
spotlight post X Factor fame, snag-
ging two Aria awards and releasing
single and double platinum albums
(and one more on the way) all before
the age of 21.
But despite hitting red carpets with
a Home and Away star on his arm and
raking in a collective half-a-million
followers on social media, the main
difference between his life pre and
post fame is simple.
“I sleep less,” he said.
“It’s been full-on ever since, but I
wouldn’t change a bit of it.”
The pint-sized rock star, who
developed a knack for song-writing
and playing the guitar at the age of 12,
is in the midst of producing his third
studio album, rumoured to be titled
“I think it will be (released) at the
very deadline to make sure it’s per-
fect,” Reece said.
“I’ve been writing with Jimmy
(Barnes) a bit, which has been a cool
experience working with someone
who has been doing it for years.”
A full band will accompany him on
tour, including Barnes’ son Jackie on
drums and Icehouse’s Michael Paynt-
er on guitar.
“It’s a good line-up and a really
strong band, so I can’t wait to get out
and play some good shows,” Reece
New York-based trio The Kin
will kick-start each show, fresh off
the back of supporting British power-
house Coldplay in a Sydney perfor-
mance last month.
“They were playing at Coldplay
the other night and we went to check
them out,” Reece said.
“They’re definitely established in
the sense that they’ve been playing
together for years, so I’m looking for-
ward to having them on board.”
His trip to Renmark is expected to
raise heart rates and pack the audito-
rium, after all, his visits to Westfield
Shopping Centres have crowded entire
ground and top floors.
“The only other famous pop art-
ists we’ve had visit would be Guy
Sebastian last year and beat boxer Joel
Turner in 2005,” said Chaffey Theatre
administration officer Lara Vallelonga.
“It will be a big buzz and there will
be a lot of hype.”
Reece Mastin will perform his
Wolf in the Woods tour in Renmark’
at the Chaffey Theatre on Friday,

Reece Mastin on music,
fame and those tattoos
Teen heart-throb and 2011 X Factor winner Reece Mastin
will bring his Wolf in the Woods tour to Renmark’s Chaffey
Theatre in October.
In an interview with REECE
MASTIN, Pioneer journalist MELISSA
KEOGH gained insight to the rock
star’s life after winning X Factor,
moving to Sydney, and his addiction
to getting inked.
MK: How has life changed since
becoming famous? Are you able to
go shopping without being hassled
RM: Usually. I can get by.
MK: You’re becoming quite
well-known for your tattoos. Can
Renmark audiences expect any new
RM: Not any new ones yet. I
think I went a little bit too quick, so I
have to slow down. I’ve been strug-
gling to stop.
MK: What about favourites?
RM: I like them all. The cool thing
about them is that they’re all differ-
ent stories and they’re all different
points of what I’ve been doing. So
they’re all meaningful in their own
MK: Will your younger sister
Georgia (fellow X Factor contestant)
be touring with you?
RM: No, I’ve been helping her
write some stuff and I think she’s
trying to find her own sound, which
is cool. Give her time and she’ll
have something impressive to give I
MK: Do you still visit your home
RM: I’m in Sydney at the
moment. I’ve been working here for
a while, my family’s still home. I do
get back as much as I can.

man students were
finally introduced to
their ‘exchanges’ last
The students from
Germany will be stay-
ing and going to school
with Australian students

Felix Schmidt, an

Baden Wurttemberg in
south Germany, said he
had good first impres-
sions of Australia.
“I like it very much,”
“Australia is quite
different to Germany.
There are a few animals
here that you can only
see in a zoo.
“Australia is a beau-
tiful country, with nice
sunsets and the River-
land is beautiful too.”
The German students
will be going on an out-

weeks’ time to experi-

The Loxton High
School students will

two months and attend a

Janek Rutzen, who is

about the south Ger-

during my trip,” Janek
