The Age and Music Victoria today revealed details of the special guests who will be inducting our ten legendary Victorian musicians and industry icons, together with some additional performers, at The Age Music Victoria 10th Anniversary Hall of Fame concert event being held at The Palais Theatre on Friday 20 November 2015.
This special, once-in-a-lifetime concert event already boasts performances by two of this year’s inductees - John Farnham (30 minute set) and Archie Roach – as well as Normie Rowe, Brian Cadd, Kate Ceberano, Mark Seymour, Vika Bull and Angie Hart. Today we can announce that Paul Kelly and Kingswood will also be joining these Victorian music stars on the stage to celebrate our inductees on 20 November 2015.
Organisers are pleased to announce some of the special guests who will be inducting each of The Age Music Victoria Awards 10th Anniversary Hall of Famers on the night.
Colleen Hewett will be inducting the legendary Bill Armstrong and John Farnham will be inducted by his longtime friend, Chairman & CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Australia & New Zealand and President, Asia, Denis Handlin.
The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame 2010 inductee and special guest performer, Paul Kelly, together with Aboriginal elder, actor and musician Uncle Jack Charles, will be inducting Archie Roach.
Other inductors on the night include David Mann OAM, Billy Pinnell, Tex Perkins and one of The Thunderbirds’ favourite collaborators and singers, Marcie Jones, with more to be announced.
Patrick Donovan, CEO of Music Victoria said today, "This is a very special night for the inductees so we asked them to nominate someone in their careers to have the honour of inducting them on the night. We are thrilled that some of the biggest names in the industry will be joining us in this massive celebration".
The one night only concert event on Friday 20 November 2015, will be hosted by RocKwiz’ Brian Nankervis with musical backing by the EG Allstars featuring Pete Luscombe (musical director), James Black, Bill McDonald and Ash Naylor.
First introduced in 2006, The Age Music Victoria Awards (formerly The Age EG Awards) are the largest publicly voted music awards in Australia. Unlike the annual Awards which will be announced in September 2015, the selection of The Age Music Victoria Awards 10th Anniversary Hall of Fame inductees was made by a voting panel including former inductees, musicians and music professionals, all of whom had their work cut out for them in selecting just ten inductees from Victoria’s long and illustrious musical heritage. Eligibility required inductees to have been Victorian residents when they made a significant contribution to Victoria culture.
$5.00 from every ticket sold will be donated to the events charity partner, Support Act Limited, to help musicians in need.
