Storm Surge

Brace yourselves ladies and get ready for a night of the dirty south — and we’re not talking Louisiana and Mississippi. That’s right: Australia’s popular male revue show, Thunder from Down Under is coming to the Valley.

More country than Chippendale’s and more classy than a strip joint, the traveling Aussies (and their abs) bring their near-bare bodies and dance routines for a weekend of swoon and sweat. The show promises to be better and bigger than ever — we’ll let you decide what that means.

Grease up and get down at 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 25, at Talking Stick Resort, 9800 East Indian Bend Road in Scottsdale. Tickets are $32.99 each, but group tables are available for the 21-and-over strip tease. Shows at 8 p.m. Friday, September 26, and both 5 and 8 p.m. Saturday, September 27, are sold out. Visit or call the box office at 480-850-7734 for tickets.

Thu., Sept. 25, 8 p.m.; Sept. 25-June 27, 2014
