THE HILL WINERY, GEELONG - SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16
a day on the green launches a summer invasion of Australian rock'n'roll with its first show at the magnificent new winery The Hill in Geelong next year.
Hoodoo Gurus, The Angels with Dave Gleeson, Ross Wilson, Dragon and Boom Crash Opera are set to join forces for five mouth-watering hours of irresistible Oz rock classics on Saturday February 16 2013.
The concert marks the long-awaited return of the popular winery brand to the region, after hugely successfully concerts at Scotchman's Hill at Spray Farm on the Bellarine Peninsula from 2007 - 2010. The event has found a superb home in the Browne family's newly developed property The Hill Winery. And promoter Roundhouse Entertainment has assembled an all-star Aussie ensemble to ensure the new venue is launched in spectacular style!
The legendary Gurus are by any measure one of Australia's greatest, best loved and most enduring rock bands; the Dave Gleeson-fronted Angels unleashed their eagerly-awaited new album to feverish Angels fans two months ago; Ross Wilson and Dragon continue to thrill audiences nationally with their incredible catalogue of chart-toppers, while openers Boom Crash Opera fronted by charismatic Dale Ryder round off this incredible bill with panache.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
HOODOO GURUS - To celebrate 30 years since their debut single 'Leilani', the Gurus have compiled all their biggest hits and fan favourites onto a best-of set, aptly-titled 'Gold Watch: 20 Golden Greats'. Tracks like 'What's My Scene?', 'Miss Freelove '69', 'The Right Time', 'Bittersweet', 'Come Anytime', and '1000 Miles Away' are but a few of songs that helped provide a soundtrack to Australian life going all the way back to the 1980s. On stage, the irrepressible Gurus have few equals and will undoubtedly light up the vineyard.
THE ANGELS - With Doc Neeson pursuing a solo career, The Angels needed a new lead singer and when ex-Screaming Jets front man Dave Gleeson jumped on stage with the band in April last year, Rick & John Brewster knew instantly they had found their man. A new single 'Waiting For The Sun' followed by the August 31 release of the 'Take It to The Streets' album signaled the return of this mighty rock band. New singer, new drummer, new songs but undeniably the Angels.
ROSS WILSON - Singer, songwriter and producer Ross 'Mr Eagle Rock' Wilson is one of the truce icons of the Aussie music industry. From the legendary Daddy Cool through 80's chart-toppers Mondo Rock, through his acclaimed solo work including latest album 'I Come In Peace', Ross's live shows are always huge a day on the green favourites.
DRAGON - With an unforgettable run of chart-toppers like 'Are You Old Enough', 'April Sun In Cuba', 'Still In Love With You', 'Rain' and many others, Dragon's legacy is of one of Australasia's most successful pop bands. Joined several years ago by veteran vocalist Mark Williams as front man, a revitalised Dragon released a new EP 'Chase The Sun' and are thrilled to be back on stage again.
BOOM CRASH OPERA - Growing out of the fertile post-punk scene in Melbourne, Boom Crash Opera hit heady heights with smash hits 'Great Wall', 'The Best Thing', 'Onionskin', 'Dancing In The Storm' and 'Get Out Of The House'. Band members have continued to work in music, theatre and TV worlds, reconvening sporadically for live appearances. Well-known for their boisterous stage shows, BCO has been lured back to the big stage to be part of the a day on the green concerts.
