The GO!! Show was a ground-breaking phenomenon when it first went to air 45 years ago, introducing live and local music to a new generation of music fans. It hit television screens in 1964 hot on the heels of the lifestyle shattering tour of The Beatles, creating the perfect vehicle for a stable of local teen stars and changing the lives of generations of Baby Boomers.
Fashions changed overnight. Sharp suits, velvet collars, thin ties, ‘laughing side boots’, black socks, hair heading south for teenage boys and big fringes, thick eye make-up for girls – not to forget girls screaming as their new pop idols sang their hits.
The GO!! Show introduced us to Johnny Young; Normie Rowe, Olivia Newton-John, Pat Carroll, The Strangers, Ian Turpie, Buddy England, Terry Dean, Bobby & Laurie, Colin Cook, Merv Benton, Marcie Jones, Yvonne Barrett, Joy Lemmon, Dinah Lee, Tony Worsley, MPD Ltd and more. It created the hit records and launched the pop band explosion – The Twilights, Masters Apprentices, The Groop, Ronnie Burns and the Flies, The Groove, the Cherokees and many more.
THE GO!! SHOW GOLD team has created a perfect relection of the times. The energy and excitement of performers still at the peak of their talent transports the audience to the hysteria of 1964 – and the girls this time round may not scream, but will know all the hits word perfect!!
Together for the first time in 40 years will be Normie Rowe, Ronnie Burns, MPD Limited, Bobby Bright, Dinah Lee, Darryl Cotton, Tony Worsley and the original members of Masters Apprentices who are reforming especially for the event.
