Two Big N.S.W. Shows

14 June 2016

12 ARTISTS - 50 MASSIVE HITS
CLASSIC HITS ALL DAY

If anyone needs reminding of the unbelievable Australian music that defined the 70s, 80s and 90s, then the next a day on the green’s in Mudgee and Armidale are the place to be.

Twelve of that era’s most popular artists are set to join for unique concerts at Robert Oatley Vineyards, Mudgee and Petersons Winery, Armidale for more than four hours of classic hits and memories. The shows promise to be joyous, fun-filled celebrations of the soundtrack of a generation.

How’s this for a star-studded line-up!  Eurogliders, Richard Clapton, Mi-Sex, Glenn Shorrock, 1927, Rose Tattoo, Mark Gable (The Choirboys), Gangajang, Thirsty Merc, Steve Kilbey (The Church) and Wendy Matthews will perform at both concerts, with Ross Wilson also taking to the stage in Mudgee and Swanee in Armidale.

Each act will perform a 20-minute set to enable the music to keep on coming. And with 50 unforgettable chart-topping hits, we’re expecting some sensational crowd sing-a-longs!

The concerts will finish with an all-star tribute to the iconic Aussie classic by Stevie Wright, Evie Parts 1, 2 and 3.

1927’s Eric Weideman said: “It’s been really satisfying for us that our songs have stood the test of time and still bring enjoyment to so many people. There are some incredible artists and incredible songs that will be a part of this a day on the green. It’s going to be a real celebration of a fantastic period of Australian music.”

Euroglider’s Grace Knight added: “The comradery between all the artist is so fantastic. We get to catch up with each other and discuss gigs and touring stories… not the kind for public consumption! The shows are high energy with hit after hit after hit smashed out. Every song comes with a happy memory. The audiences go ballistic, it’s such great fun for the performer and the audience. Bernie and I love doing these shows!”

From Steve Kilbey: “It’s a fantastic opportunity to hear a load of great hit songs and meet a load of old friends. a day on the green will be a trip down memory lane and music galore for all the old and young dudes.”

With magnificent locations, good food and wine and general admission tickets at just $99.90 – get your friends together for a day where we celebrate some vintage Aussie music.
