The show will take the format of “50 songs for 50 years”, with a press release promising performances of songs such as Barnes’ ‘Working Class Man’, Hunters & Collectors’ ‘Holy Grail’, The Temper Trap’s ‘Sweet Disposition’, Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’, The Rubens’ ‘Hoops’, Conway’s ‘It’s Only the Beginning’, Kelly’s ‘Before Too Long’ and Skyhooks’ ‘Living In The 70’s’.
