How's this for value, all six fantastic bands for only $89 - and it's the Labour Day long weekend so there's a Monday holiday to recover!
You're gonna hear classics like 'Take Me Back', 'Touch', 'Love Somebody', 'No Lies', 'Tucker's Daughter', 'Bow River', 'When The War Is Over', 'Horses', 'As Days Go By', Girls On The Avenue', 'Capricorn Dancer', 'I Am An Island', 'April Sun In Cuba', 'Are You Old Enough', 'Run To Paradise' and 'Boys Will Be Boys' to name just a few.
This classic Oz rock concert was announced at five other wineries around Australia late last year to an overwhelming response, some venues selling out and others close to it. More than 7000 tickets were sold to the Hunter Valley concert in just three days! It's clear music fans everywhere have embraced this great line-up, and with another three concerts in NSW, Perth and Sirromet Wines announced today.......let there be rock, we say!
With these events Roundhouse Entertainment, promoters of a day on the green, are proud to continue their decade-long support of our great Australian artists. Sirromet Wines promises to be one giant sing-a-long of home-grown hits!

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
NOISEWORKS - For nearly a decade Noiseworks reigned as one of Australia's most popular and most acclaimed rock bands. Led by the charismatic Jon Stevens, the band sold in excess of 1.2 million albums that spawned 15 hit singles including 'No Lies', 'Take Me Back', 'Hot Chilli Woman' and 'Love Somebody' resulting in a domination of charts and radio airwaves. Since reforming, Noiseworks have retained their brilliant live reputation and are working on their first new album since 1991.
IAN MOSS - 'Mossy' holds a revered place in Australian music. His soulful vocals and incredible guitar playing ensure his live sets are always amazing. Fresh from the extraordinary Cold Chisel reunion tour and performing songs covering both his Chisel and solo careers, this master musician will be in red hot form.
DARYL BRAITHWAITE - In a distinguished career spanning more than 40 years, Daryl is one of Australia's award-winning premier performers. Sherbet re-wrote the history books with 20 Top 40 hit singles, success which continued to Daryl's solo career with hits like 'As The Days Go By', 'Horses' and 'One Summer'. He continues to do what he loves, performing to a dedicated fan base all over the country.
RICHARD CLAPTON - Richard has endeared himself to music-lovers everywhere through his heartfelt inspired performances and a songbook that defines our times. With hits like 'Girls On The Avenue', 'Deep Water', 'Capricorn Dancer', Richard was a thoroughly deserving and popular inductee into the ARIA Hall Of Fame and is an absolute a day on the green crowd favourite.
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' in November and are thrilled to be back on stage again.
CHOIRBOYS - 'Run to Paradise', 'Boys Will Be Boys' and 'Never Gonna Die' are some of the rock classics that helped put the Choirboys distinctive stamp on Aussie rock'n'roll. Headed by rock belter Mark Gable, they charted a course from pubs to the charts with unflagging energy and commitment. The Choirboys will kick off the day in great style.
