Audience race fever a sellout for Foxtel
FOUR Foxtel shows will broadcast live from Townsville in front of a packed theatre after registrations to be in the studio audience were booked out.
Inside Supercars, Queenslanders Only, League Life and Paul Murray Live will be broadcast from the Civic Theatre from 4pm today as part of the build- up to the Townsville 400.
Foxtel regional publicist Gabriella Facchini said the pay- TV network was thrilled to be the first to broadcast multiple shows from the Civic Theatre.
“This is such an exciting week ahead of the Watpac Townsville 400,” she said.
“With an overwhelming response to registrations all studio audiences filled up in five days.
“Gorden Tallis and Yvonne Sampson grew up in the area and it is nice to be able to bring talent home.
“We look forward to delivering the Foxtel experience to the people of North Queensland.”
Those lucky enough to attend the event will get to meet Foxtel celebrities including Tallis, Sampson, Murray, Jess Yates, Mark Skaife, Lara Pitt, Hannah Hollis, Robert Craddock, Mal Meninga and Justin Hodges.
There will also be games, food trucks and footy clinics, with gates opening at 3pm.
