It has been confirmed today that next year’s glorious A Day On The Green event will be soundtracked by music legends B52’s and Simple Minds. The fave acts will be making the most of their down time, by filling it up with a run of headline shows set for Sydney and Melbourne.
The two acts are the first so far confirmed for A Day On The Green 2017, which is shaping up to be delivering another year of time-tested and world class live music. This year’s event, for example includes the likes of Garbage, The Temper Trap and The Preatures.
The headline shows will all be indoor affairs, which now gives fans the luxury of choice as to which setting they prefer to view music legends. The shows will book-end A Day On The Green which will see them traverse much of the country with the rest of the line up.
You don’t need no crystal ball to work out that these shows are going to sell out. Simple Minds was embraced by Australia straight out of the gates of their career. The band is currently working away on a new album set for release next year, which is sure to get a bit of an airing at the below shows.
B52’s, well, what more needs to be said, it’s B52’s, right? It’s been several years since the band were last in town and we imagine that’s all fans can think right now.
