Rock and roll with Coke & Symphony, a new cabaret for Sydney and Melbourne

What if the lady in the song knew that all that glitters wasn’t gold? Wild Delilah just might be the one who really knows how it all goes down.

Coke and Sympathy

Coke and Sympathy is a rock and roll cabaret show that tells the tumultuous, titillatingly true story of Wild Delilah. She’s a young blonde bohemian who loses her heart to an engimatic and destructive rock guitarist (you know the type) on his one-man quest for fame and glory (you definitely know the type).

Through the re-working of iconic and captivating hits of the classic rock era by artists including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and more, Wild Delilah reveals the lesser known stories behind the songs and de-bunks popular rumours surrounding them, whilst all the while weaving in her own saucy tales of sex, drugs and modern day rock & roll romance.

The show deals with women’s place in rock history – a male dominated industry where females are often present as symbols of men’s physical, emotional and creative stimulation, but are rarely encouraged to develop themselves as artists in their own right.

Coke & Sympathy takes you on an irreverent, nostalgic and captivating journey through the golden age of rock & roll.
