PRESENTATION NIGHT RETURNS! TIM ROGERS and MATTHEW RICHARDSON discuss music, football (and life) at THE CORNER HOTEL, THURSDAY 15TH AUGUST Hosted by FRANCIS LEACH

After a sell-out debut earlier this month (featuring Paul Kelly and Bob Murphy at the top of their games) PRESENTATION NIGHT returns, by popular demand, to The Corner Hotel on Thursday 15th August. Put simply, the night is a conversation between a footballer who loves music, and a musician who loves football. It’s a once-in-a lifetime pairing between two greats in their respective fields.
 
Under the warm glow of the spotlight, TIM ROGERS (You Am I front man, great Australian songwriter, TV host, face of finals footy, life long Shinboner) and MATTHEW RICHARDSON (legendary Tiger, goal kicker, much loved commentator and music lover) come together to discuss their mutual love of music and footy at length in ways that are philosophical, funny and surprising. 
 
Ably guided by music and sport obsessive FRANCIS LEACH (ABC Grandstand Breakfast), Presentation Night tackles the big issues: what similarities are there between the professional musician and the professional footballer? How do friendships form in footy and in music? We’ll take a look inside their kitbags, unearth some suprising trophies, talk about who scares them on the field or on stage.  We’ll ask about Richo’s favourite albums and Tim’s favourite footballers - and much, much more.
 
Highlights of the first Presentation Night were many – Bob Murphy revealing his secret love for Lady GaGa; Paul Kelly playing a brand new song he’d finished that afternoon about the great Charles Perkins; a packed room sitting listening to vinyl spinning on stage together. It was a once-only experience for lovers of footy and music.
 
Their conversation will last longer than a tweet - and that’s the point. A bit of meandering and a touch of digression will be encouraged.  It’s the equivalent of the slow food movement for Sherrin kickers and string strokers.  It’s a chance to learn something new about the role that footy and music play in our protagonists’ lives, and with a bit of luck, maybe even a bit about how kicking a ball and writing songs can come to define us.
 
‘Presentation Night’ was born of desire to talk about two much-loved obsessions together in a public forum, and is an extension of the website of the same name. In a football and music-loving town where the two pursuits are so often followed with equal passion, it makes perfect sense. To have two greats in their field talk about their love of both capers together, gives us a chance to learn something new about them beyond the usual reportage of their endeavours. We can’t wait for a whole new take on it all with the towering talents of Richo and Rogers on stage together this time around.
