A string of Aussie legends heading to Toronto in 2020 for Live On The Lake series

With a stellar 2019 Live on The Lake series that included the likes of Russell Morris, The Angels, Baby Animals, and Leo Sayer, Toronto Hotel is definitely keeping that quality coming in 2020.

The popular concert series continues with gusto this year, kicking off this month with legendary Mondo Rock and Daddy Cool frontman Ross Wilson.

Ross “the Boss”, along with his band The Peacenicks will be ripping into such quintessential Aussie classics as Eagle Rock, Come Said The Boy, and Cool World on Saturday 25 January.

Next on the agenda will; be perennial Hunter faves Thirsty Merc whose hits In The Summertime, Someday Someday, and 20 Good Reasons are sure to go down a treat in the idyllic lakeside setting.

No strangers to our neck of the woods in 2019, Rai Thistlethwaite and co always get a kick out of playing to Hunter audiences and if you’ve caught them recently you’d know they’re one of the most formidable bands on the Aussie Circuit.

The Black Sorrows will be hitting the venue on Sunday 16 February

Catch them on Saturday 1 February.

Another iconic act that still enjoys a heck of a lot of love both in these parts and right across Australia is The Black Sorrows.

With the likes of Harley and Rose, Chained To The Wheel, Shape I’m In, and Never Let Me Go, Joe Camilleri and co have quite rightly cemented themselves as one of Australia’s best-loved bands. Oh, and they also released one of THE albums of 2019 in the form of Citizen John.

Enjoying capacity shows at Belmont 16s and Lizotte’s in 2019, The Black Sorrows are well and truly in great form and their Sunday 16 February show promises to be one for the ages.

The last show to be announced at the venue, thus far, is none other than Moving Pictures who will be hitting Toronto on Saturday 7 March.

In 1981, they recorded their debut album, Days Of Innocence, including the smash hit What About Me, both of which went straight to the top of the charts. The band enjoyed several very successful years before the pressure of relentless touring took its toll, and, in 1987, they split.

Thankfully they reunited for a 30th anniversary tour and have kept the party going ever since placing across the country to rave reviews.
