Watch Tones And I Cover ‘Dog Days Are Over’ at ABC NYE Party

A bunch of artists took part in ABC’s annual NYE shindig at the Sydney Opera House, including Tasman Keith, Dami Im, Electric Fields, and festival favourites Ball Park Music. ‘Dance Monkey’ hitmaker Tones and I was also on hand, performing at the end of the night just before the fireworks boom-crashed their way across Sydney Harbour.

Tones performed a handful of her own tracks, before turning her attention to Florence + The Machine’s beloved ‘Dog Days Are Over’. Watch below.

It was a big night of covers. Tasman Keith bravely and brilliantly covered Prince’s ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’. “Covering I wanna be your lover for NYE at the opera house is up there in my best moments,” Keith wrote on Twitter. “Wild.”

Dami Im took on the late Olivia Newton-John’s ‘Hopelessly Devoted To You’ and BTS’ ‘Butter’, Casey Donovan pulled out Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’ and Lizzo’s ‘About Damn Time’ and Ball Park Music covered Russell Morris’ ‘The Real Thing’ and Leonardo’s Bride’s ‘Even When I’m Sleeping’.
