Hoodoo Gu­rus in as sum­mer parts

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - News -

AUS­TRALIAN rock favourite Hoodoo Gu­rus will pro­vide a siz­zling end to sum­mer in South Perth with a free con­cert on the fore­shore.

The City of South Perth has con­firmed that the age­less won­ders will head­line the ever-pop­u­lar an­nual South Perth Sounds event at Sir James Mitchell Park on Satur­day, Feb­ru­ary 23.

Two weeks later the same venue will be in use for A Day on the Green, with Kylie Minogue sup­ported by Aus­tralian indie pop out­fit Client Li­ai­son.

De­scribed as one of Aus­tralia’s most in­ven­tive, lyri­cally smart and ex­cit­ing rock ’n’ roll bands and still great live per­form­ers, the Hoodoo Gu­rus have banged out hits for more than three decades in­clud­ing What’s My Scene, Like Wow – Wipe­out! and Bit­ter­sweet. South Perth Mayor Sue Do­herty said the event was free, untick­eted and a chance for fam­i­lies and friends to see out sum­mer with a pic­nic to­gether on South Perth Fore­shore while en­joy­ing live mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment.

“South Perth Sounds is one of the City’s most pop­u­lar an­nual events and with the Hoodoo Gu­rus head­lin­ing next year’s con­cert, I know we are all in for a treat, ” Mrs Do­herty said.

“The City’s events bring our com­mu­nity to­gether to share in a range of ex­pe­ri­ences that en­rich our lives in many ways. I en­cour­age ev­ery­one in our com­mu­nity to bring their fam­i­lies and friends along to en­joy a spec­tac­u­lar evening of live mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment in one of Perth’s most pic­turesque river­side lo­ca­tions.”

The Hoodoo Gu­rus will con­tinue the tra­di­tion of big names to have per­formed at the City of South Perth’s an­nual sum­mer con­cert.

This year the South Perth Fi­esta was re­branded as Sound Perth Sounds and res­i­dents lis­tened to Perth Sym­phony Orches­tra and WAAPA Gospel Choir fea­tur­ing Faith and Free­dom, the Mu­sic of Ge­orge Michael, as well as en­joy­ing hyp­no­tist Matt Hale.

Thirsty Merc, Lucy Du­rack and Bjorn Again are oth­ers to have starred at the fore­shore in the past few years.

Lo­cal band Hot Sand will take the stage ahead of Hoodoo Gu­rus and the fore­shore will fea­ture other pre-show en­ter­tain­ment, fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties and gourmet food trucks from 5pm.

The Hoodoo Gu­rus will show­case their age­less rock at South Perth Sounds.
