Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

MU­SIC legends Pete Mur­ray, Kate Ce­ber­ano and Ash Grun­wald will head­line a free fam­ily con­cert in Bris­bane to mark the Cen­te­nary of Ar­mistice Day.

RSL Queens­land’s Free­dom Sounds con­cert will also fea­ture the Aus­tralian Army Band Bris­bane.

The con­cert will cel­e­brate the mon­u­men­tal mo­ment when the end of World War I was de­clared.

RSL Queens­land pres­i­dent Tony Fer­ris said the con­cert was a great way to cel­e­brate the Cen­te­nary of Ar­mistice.

“It was a mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion across the world and what bet­ter way to re­mem­ber than get­ting the com­mu­nity to­gether for an af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment and a bite to eat at Bris­bane’s River­stage,” Mr Fer­ris said.

“Ev­ery­one’s in­vited to bring a blan­ket and re­live the eu­pho­ria of 11 Novem­ber, 100 years ago, as we hon­our our ser­vice­men and women, and their fam­i­lies, for the sac­ri­fice they make.”

Gates open at Bris­bane’s River­stage from 1.30pm on Novem­ber 11. Visit free­dom­
