DAVID WENHAM TO INDUCT THE WIGGLES!
STEVIE NICKS, RICHARD WILKINS, CHRISSY AMPHLETT, RUBY ROSE AND JAMES KERLEY CONFIRMED TO PRESENT
With sets taking shape and tables being set for the 25th ANNIVERSARY ARIA AWARDS at Allphones Arena, Sydney Olympic Park, this Sunday, 27 November the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) has announced more special guest presenters and inductors to share the stage on the night.
Music fans can expect a magical night with the induction of KYLIE MINOGUE and THE WIGGLES into the ARIA HALL OF FAME, and performances by GOTYE and KIMBRA (the first time they’ve performed the hit Somebody That I Used to Know on television), DRAPHT, BOY & BEAR, ART vs SCIENCE, GURRUMUL with MISSY HIGGINS, CUT COPY, THE LIVING END and GUY SEBASTIAN.
ARIA is pleased to announce today that PRIME MINISTER, JULIA GILLARD, will be inducting KYLIE MINOGUE into the 2011 ARIA HALL OF FAME.
The Prime Minister and Kylie met earlier this year in Japan when they were guests at the Australian Embassy fundraising dinner for the Japan tsunami disaster. The pop princess and the Prime Minister struck up a friendship over the dinner and both look forward to meeting each other again under much happier circumstances.
Taking the podium to induct THE WIGGLES into the ARIA HALL OF FAME is one of Australia’s most accomplished actors, DAVID WENHAM. Currently starring in the critically acclaimed, Killing Time, David is best known for his roles in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Moulin Rouge, 300 and Sea Change. David is also the father of two daughters and knows all the words to Hot Potato.
ARIA is pleased to announce more stars taking on presenting duties on the night. Currently mid-way through her Australian tour, seminal rock-chick, STEVIE NICKS, will be gracing the ARIA Awards stage to present an Award with her friend, and Nine Network’s Entertainment Editor (and best-selling author), RICHARD WILKINS.
ARIA is also happy to announce that ARIA HALL OF FAME inductee and Divinyls front-woman, CHRISSY AMPHLETT, will be taking the stage to present an Award on the night.
And last, but by no means least, model and DJ, RUBY ROSE and radio and TV host, JAMES KERLEY will also be joining the presenter’s roll-call for the 25th Anniversary ARIA AWARDS.
They’re set to join HAMISH & ANDY, JOEL & BENJI MADDEN, NOAH TAYLOR, DELTA GOODREM, TOM BALLARD & ALEX DYSON, IVA DAVIES, KATIE NOONAN, ADAM HILLS, RICKI-LEE COULTER, ERIN McNAUGHT and MOLLY MELDRUM for the Australian music community’s night of nights.
