Live music is back and Nine will screen 2021 Sounds Better Together a concert staged by the Mushroom Group in Mallacoota this Saturday.
This features performances by James Reyne, Daryl Braithwaite + Vika & Linda + Mia Wray, but the special, hosted by David Campbell, will also draw upon performances from other events which have been staged across Victoria: Jimmy Barnes, Tones And I, Missy Higgins, The Teskey Brothers, Archie Roach, Ross Wilson, Birds Of Tokyo (with the MSO), The Living End, Something For Kate, Linda, Gordi.
Jane Gazzo, Kate Gudinski and Madeline Slattery will co-host.
Nine Program Director, Hamish Turner, said: “We’re honoured to be able to team up with Mushroom Group and Visit Victoria to broadcast this incredible initiative. Live music is such an important part of Australian culture. It gives a platform to so many talented musicians and brings joy to the audience. I hope by broadcasting 2021 Sounds Better Together on Nine, we can remind audiences of their love for live music and that we have hope for a better year for all ahead. We’d also encourage our viewers to get out and explore all that’s great about Victoria, especially after the particularly tough year the state endured.”
Chairman and Founder of the Mushroom Group, Michael Gudinski, said: “Musicians have been busting to get back on stage before real live audiences and it’s fantastic that we can stage these concerts at such amazing locations and iconic venues across Victoria. The phenomenal success of last year’s Music From The Home Front highlighted a huge appetite from the public for live music on television and I’m thrilled that with this Nine broadcast everyone across Australia has an opportunity to experience the 2021 Sounds Better Together shows, even if they can’t be at them in person.”
7:30pm Saturday January 30 on Nine.
