Lovers of Oz music (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) will be in heaven this ANZAC Day eve with some of the biggest names that ever graced a stage, beaming into your lounge room for Music From The Home Front 2021.
The mammoth TV broadcast, the brainchild of late great rock and roll impresario Michael Gudinski, will include live performances from Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl, along with artist clips filmed at various iconic Victorian locations.
With the likes of Jimmy Barnes, Amy Shark, Tina Arena, Bliss N Eso, Kasey Chambers, Lime Cordiale, Vance Joy, The Rubens, Ben Lee, Dean Lewis, You Am I, Gordi, Hayley Mary, Jess Hitchcock, Mahalia Barnes, Sam Fischer, and The Kid Laroi already slated to perform either live or streamed, this was always going to be an event to write home about.
But add to that already impressive line-up such home-grown goal kickers as Newcastle’s own Morgan Evans, Crowded House, Delta Goodrem, Kate Ceberano, Augie March, Mark Seymour, Abby Dobson, Nikka Costa, and The Australian Children’s Choir, this is one show no self-respecting fan of OZ music won’t want to miss.
Hosted by Today Extra co-host David Campbell, Today Show entertainment presenter Brooke Boney and Talking In Common podcast co-host Kate Gudinski, Music from The Home Front will also, once again, partner up with Support Act.
Fans can buy special event merch and 100 per cent of profits will go to helping out artists, crew and music workers.
“It couldn’t be more fitting that the first major event following the late, great Michael Gudinski’s passing is Music From The Home Front, back for its second year,” Clive Miller, Support Act CEO said.
“Last year’s event was a rallying call for everyone working in live music to have hope and optimism for the future while remembering all those who served in defence of our nation.
“This year the message has added poignancy and Support Act is delighted to once again be the beneficiary of proceeds, which will support our efforts to provide crisis relief and mental health and wellbeing support for music workers who are doing it tough.”
