ARMIDALE & GLEN INNES PLAYING HOST TO GREAT SOUTHERN NIGHTS GIGS 

Friday, 23 October 2020

 

AN Australian-first event aimed at kick-starting the COVID-19 effected live music scene is coming to Armidale and Glen Innes next month, Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall announced today.

 

Mr Marshall said tickets were now on sale for the Great Southern Nights gigs, a State Government initiative to aid the recovery of the live music, hospitality and tourism industries.

 

“No industry has been more effected by COVID-19 social gathering restrictions than our vibrant performing arts scene,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“In order to give our musos a much needed boost, ticketed gigs are going to be held throughout November at Charlie’s Last Stand and the Welders Dog in Armidale and at the Glen Innes Bowling Club.

 

“Over six nights, live music lovers can settle in to some of the best talent regional NSW has to offer with the likes of Fergus James, Ben Leece, Goldheist and Matt O’Leary along with rock legend John Swan.

 

“These events will motivate visitors to come and enjoy all Armidale and Glen Innes has to offer, encouraging them to get out and explore the other restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and attractions.

 

“Tickets for these COVIDSafe gigs are now on sale and can be purchased online at www.greatsouthernnights.com.au

 

“I urge people to grab their tickets and get along to support our artists and have a great night.”

 

Great Southern Nights will comprise 1,000 individual COVID-safe gigs across NSW during Australian Music Month – November.
