Price put on love

Joondalup Weekender - - Front Page -

ALL You Need is Love will be the mes­sage at the City of Joon­dalup’s 2019 Valen­tine’s Con­cert, which for the first time will cost res­i­dents for tick­ets.

Jack Jones, Wes Carr, Rai Thistleth­wayte and Jack­son Thomas, backed by the Perth Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, will bring the mu­sic of The Bea­tles to the Joon­dalup Re­sort on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 14, for the WA pre­miere per­for­mance.

The City said the Valen­tine’s Con­cert had been run­ning since 2005 with mu­si­cal acts “grow­ing in stature in re­cent years” and cost­ing more than $300,000.

“Given the sig­nif­i­cant costs as­so­ci­ated with large scale, modern con­cert pro­duc­tions, and to en­sure the event can con­tinue to de­liver out­stand­ing mu­si­cal acts, the City will in­tro­duce a fee for tick­ets,” it said.

“Charg­ing a fee will as­sist in en­sur­ing the con­cert can con­tinue to grow as a sig­na­ture WA event, pri­mar­ily for the lo­cal com­mu­nity. The City will con­tinue to sub­sidise the con­cert, with a re­cent run of All You Need Is Love at venues in Sydney and Mel­bourne sell­ing from $89 per ticket.”

Tick­ets will be $25 for City res­i­dents, $20 for res­i­dents with a valid con­ces­sion card, $10 for chil­dren and $35 for non-res­i­dents.

Res­i­dents can buy tick­ets from Novem­ber 5 to 19 be­fore they are made avail­able to peo­ple out­side the City. Tick­ets will be avail­able on­line through Tick­et­booth or City of Joon­dalup cus­tomer ser­vice cen­tres.
