Sheeran’s next hit will be a tribute

- CAMERON ADAMS

ED SHEERAN'S emotional musical tribute to Michael Gudinski is set to be released as the music industry titan’s legacy lives on. Gudinski’s son, Matt, who has assumed the role of chief executive of Mushroom Group, is leading the company to stage a sequel to last year’s Music From The Home Front concert on Anzac Day.

Gudinski said he had been overwhelme­d with the outpouring of respect towards his father, who died unexpected­ly on March 2.

Sheeran, a good friend of Gudinski’s, flew into Australia, writing a song called Visiting Hours while in quarantine, which he premiered at the memorial.

“I believe there’s plans for it to be released in due course,” Matt Gudinski revealed.

Last year’s Music From The Home Front virtual concert was one of Michael Gudinski’s career highlights.

This year will feature a COVID-safe live audience at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl where artists including Amy Shark, Vance Joy, The Rubens, Tash Sultana, Mia Wray, Jerome Farah, Lime Cordiale and Budjerah will perform.

Tickets, starting at $69, go on sale next Friday from musicfromt­hehomefron­t.com
