Wig­gle to Aussie mu­sic

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - For de­tails of all events go to aus­trali­a­day.com.au

CEL­E­BRA­TIONS for Aus­tralia Day will in­clude a dou­ble dose of Aus­tralian mu­sic when some of our most pop­u­lar artists per­form two free con­certs on the Syd­ney Opera House fore­court.

The Wiggles will start their 25th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions with a con­cert from 10am.

Fam­i­lies will be able to sing along with their favourite Wiggles songs and en­joy Dorothy the Di­nosaur, Wags the Dog, Henry the Oc­to­pus and Cap­tain Feather­sword.

The se­cond con­cert, from 7.30pm, will be a trib­ute to Aus­tralian mu­sic which will also be broad­cast live on Chan­nel Ten.

Aus­tralia Day cre­ative di­rec­tor John Fore­man will bring to­gether Aus­tralia’s bright­est per­form­ers on the night, in­clud­ing Jes­sica Mauboy, Jus­tice Crew, Thirsty Merc, Roy and HG, Cyrus and Bach­e­lor Girl.

“From new and up-and­com­ing acts to her­itage artists, the con­cert will be the per­fect way to cel­e­brate all that we love about Aus­tralia through mu­sic,” Mr Fore­man said.

The con­certs will be pre­sented by Desti­na­tion NSW.

Al­though tick­ets for both events were snapped up in record time there will be plenty of mu­si­cal al­ter­na­tives on of­fer dur­ing the day nearby at The Rocks.
