Get ready Sydney and prepare to party with your friends as a brand new, exciting line-up of shows gets set to sizzle across the Taronga Zoo stage. The 2012 series features some of the hottest acts in the country, together with the ever-popular Taronga favourites. Plus a new party vibe will have you up and dancing from the very first note!
The series kicks off on Saturday January 28 with one of our greatest ever rock bands, The Church, performing all their classic hits in a very special show under the stars. Week two features the hugely popular family favourite, Bjorn Again, with their all-singing, all-dancing tribute to ABBA. Then two Aussie rock icons, James Reyne and Mark Seymour, join forces to perform all their hit songs, straight from the heart. Star of stage and screen, Tom Burlinson, follows with a sensational, swingin’ big band night and the stunning Marina Prior returns to sing her favourite Broadway hits, joined by guest Kane Alexander.
March blasts off with an all-star line-up paying tribute to the incredible musical force of Queen. To keep things rockin’ we welcome singer songwriter Diesel for an awesome night of blues rock. This is followed by a high energy celebration of the music and dance of the ‘King of Pop’, Michael Jackson, featuring some of the best musos in the country and the extraordinary dance group. We then journey back in time to the fabulous 50’s for some good, clean, rock’n’ roll fun. Australian music legend Richard Clapton teams up with Wendy Matthews to play the songs that warmed the hearts of a generation, then we wrap up the series with international jazz maestro and Taronga favourite, James Morrison, for a funky farewell night of classic jazz.
