TEN is returning to the Opera House steps for Australia Day 2016, a Live concert to be hosted by Grant Denyer with Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Roy & HG.
The event will include performances by Jessica Mauboy, Kate Ceberano, Glenn Shorrock, Cyrus Villanueve, Justice Crew, Thirsty Merc and a reunited Bachelor Girl.
“I really am so excited to be involved in the Australia Day Concert this year! It’s a fantastic line-up of talent performing and to be doing it on the forecourt of the iconic Sydney Opera House is going to be magical!” said Denyer.
The Opera House steps has previously been home to successful Australian Idol broadcasts for TEN, but also an infamous ARIA Awards night (and even once where Grant Denyer ‘nuded up’ for Sunrise).
Hosted by TEN’s own Grant Denyer, Australia Day 2016 – Live at Sydney Opera House will see some of Australia’s most talented artists come together, to celebrate what it means to be Australian, through music, conversation and comedy.
Featuring performances by the magnificent Jessica Mauboy, the multi-award winning Kate Ceberano, singer-songwriter Glenn Shorrock, last year’s The X Factor winner Cyrus, 1990s superstars Bachelor Girl, dance-crew-turned-recording-artists Justice Crew, pop rock band Thirsty Merc and soprano Greta Bradman, this sell-out Australia Day concert is a celebration for the whole family to enjoy.
Australia’s queen of television, Kerri-Anne Kennerley, will join Grant as the official “party princess”, reporting live from the VIP party inside the Opera House.
To provide a healthy dose of the Aussie larrikin spirit, the hilarious Roy and HG will provide plenty of laughs.
Australia Day 2016 – Live at Sydney Opera House is brought to you by The Australia Day Council of NSW and NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW.
Tuesday 26 January at 7.30pm on TEN.
