THE WEST Gippsland Arts Centre has announced a number of major artists will be visiting the venue in December and early next year.
This story was first published in the 14 November 2014 edition of the Warragul & Baw Baw Citizen.
The Arts Centre last week announced Melbourne-based singer and X-Factor Australia 2014 finalist Dean Ray will be coming to Warragul with Bonnie Anderson, the first winner of Australia’s Got Talent.
The pair will be performing on 20 December.
Come 6 March next year, locals can catch award winning Melbourne singer/songwriter Dan Sultan, who has just launched a new solo EP, Dirty Ground, in which the artist aptly takes on new ground.
Sultan will be performing in Warragul on the back of that release. The EP itself was recorded in one day and a number of songs were co-written by the likes of Paul Kelly and Paul Dempsey.
A number of tribute bands will also hit the WGAC stage later in the year. GOLD: The Ultimate ABBA Show will reach the town on 1 May, and Simon & Garfunkel – The Concert will play on 21 June. Planning for the Simon & Garfunkel tribute was inspired by the real group’s reunion concert in New York’s Central Park.
The Beatles Forever will see performers dressed as the fab four cover songs from The Beatles No 1 album. Audience members will be encouraged to sing along.
Announced some time ago was a performance by Leo Sayer & Band. The veteran hit-maker will be in Warragul on 26 February as part of a series of shows across regional Victoria and New South Wales.
