A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Big '80s names to play 'A Day On The Green' 2017

ADOTG2017 @2x

There are multi-group tours that kind of impress, and then there are those that truly impress. One that is well-worthy of putting into the diary is next year’s ‘A Day On The Green’, set to take over wineries across the country, and featuring three very different acts that are sure to bring about a flood of memories as each takes to the stage.

The B52s, Simple Minds and Australia’s The Models will perform on prime real estate in WA, Victoria, SA, NSW and Queensland from February 2nd to 12th (full dates and venues below).

B52s @2x

If you need a refresher, The B52s (above) are that nutty outfit that served us such hits as Rock Lobster, Love Shack and Roam; Simple Minds (below) are those credible high-school favourites who gave us Don’t You (Forget About Me), New Gold Dream and Alive & Kicking; and The Models had us hooked on the likes of Out Of Mind Out Of Sight, Barbados and I Hear Motion.

Simple Minds @2x

Says Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr: “Australia was the first country anywhere in the world to give us success and from our very first tours, we’ve always had a wonderful bond with Australian audiences and can’t wait to be playing there again.”

Get your Eighties on, get in quick for a ticket – for they’re sure to be in high demand, and relish a time when music had structure, melody and, well, was just darned exciting.

Tickets go on sale from 10am, Monday 22 August.  Antonino Tati
