Valen­tine’s Con­cert 2019

The City’s 2019 Valen­tine’s Con­cert act is All You Need is Love, fea­tur­ing Jack Jones, Wes Carr, Rai Thistleth­wayte and Jack­son Thomas with the Perth Sym­phony Or­ches­tra. Never seen be­fore in Perth, All You Need is Love will bring the mu­sic of The Bea­tles to the Joon­dalup Re­sort on Thurs­day 14 Feb­ru­ary 2019. Given the sig­nif­i­cant costs as­so­ci­ated with large scale, modern con­cert pro­duc­tions – and to en­sure the event can con­tinue to de­liver out­stand­ing mu­si­cal acts – the City has in­tro­duced a fee for tick­ets to its 2019 Valen­tine’s Con­cert, one of the north­ern cor­ri­dor’s big­gest mu­sic events. Joon­dalup res­i­dents will get first op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase tick­ets to this WA pre­miere from 5 to 19 Novem­ber. There­after, tick­ets will be made avail­able to peo­ple out­side the City for the first time. Ticket prices are $25.00 for res­i­dents, $20.00 for res­i­dents with a valid con­ces­sion card, $10.00 for chil­dren and $35.00 for non-res­i­dents. The City con­tin­ues to sub­sidise the Valen­tine’s Con­cert per­for­mance with a re­cent run of All You Need Is Love at other venues in Syd­ney and Mel­bourne sell­ing from $89.00 per ticket. Tick­ets will be avail­able on­line through Tick­et­booth. Visit joon­dalup.wa.gov.au for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

It all starts tonight. Kalei­do­scope is back for an­other four nights of world-class il­lu­mi­na­tion pro­jec­tions, art, light­ing dis­plays and per­for­mances.

High­lights will in­clude Armistice Park, In­trude, Neon Dog Park and Joyeux Noel. Kalei­do­scope is an im­por­tant part of the City’s cul­tural events cal­en­dar and plays a role in driv­ing pos­i­tive eco­nomic out­comes for the lo­cal busi­ness econ­omy, cre­at­ing vi­brancy in the City Cen­tre and pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing en­ter­tain­ment for res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike.
