An­gus and Ju­lia sell out

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

AN­GUS and Ju­lia Stone have clearly won many hearts across the Far North, re­turn­ing to Cairns for their sec­ond sold-out show this year.

Tanks Arts Cen­tre lined up a stel­lar af­ter­noon of mu­sic in the open-air set­ting of Cairns Botan­i­cal Gar­dens last week­end.

Home-grown acts Jeremiah John­son and The Mc­Me­namins en­ter­tained the lo­cals, while the melodies of New-York based duo Lu­luc were en­chant­ing. But there was one act the crowd had come to see.

An­gus and Ju­lia Stone took to the stage as the sun set to per­form songs from their lat­est al­bum Down the Way and de­but al­bum, A Book Like This.

Pop­u­lar tracks such as Mango Trees, And The Boys and Hollywood were clear crowd favourites.

The show wrapped up with a beau­ti­ful en­core per­for­mance of Pri­vate Lawns and Wasted.

If there’s a bet­ter way to spend a Sun­day than sit­ting on a pic­nic blan­ket, sip­ping a glass of wine and lis­ten­ing to chilled tunes, I haven’t found it.
