Last week when Premier Dan Andrews announced more freedoms for the people of Melbourne once 70 percent of the state’s population were double vaxed, he also announced a concert to be held at the Music Bowl. Yesterday details of that concert were revealed. On Saturday October 30 at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, a concert will be held for 4000 fully vaccinated people at just $29.90 per ticket. The concert will feature King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Amyl and The Sniffers, Baker Boy, Vika & Linda, plus Grace Cummings and Her Band. It will be a COVIDSafe test event concert, an important step in getting live music and large scale music events back in the State.

Minister for Creative Industries and Government Services Danny Pearson said: ‘We’re thrilled to be supporting our live music scene through this trial, which will see thousands of music lovers celebrate local artists in COVIDSafe settings. It’s a big step on the way to getting live music up and running again.’

‘Never have we been so excited to play a show. It’s been so long between drinks! Bizarrely, our last Melbourne show was also at the Bowl, so our plan is to present an entirely new set-list with no repeats. Some old stuff, some Butterfly 3000 stuff, some new-new stuff. CAN’T WAIT!!’ – Stu Mackenzie, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

‘It’s been a hell of a long wait. We’re so happy we can finally play for you guys. Honestly thought it was never going to happen.’ – Amyl and The Sniffers

‘I’m so pumped to be performing at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl for Play On VIC! I have just had to postpone my headline tour because of ongoing border restrictions so it feels really great to have this kind of support in Victoria! I think I’m more excited for the punters to be honest, I’m so stoked for people who have been in lockdown for so long to have a gig like this! I can’t wait to break it down and party with them!’ – Baker Boy

‘What’s that you say?  A gig?  Well knock us over with a ten tonne bowling ball.  We’re back at The Bowl and we can’t wait!’ – Vika & Linda

‘After 19 long months of cancelled and postponed shows, being told to be patient, being unable to perform, I am unbelievably excited to be a part of this show. My band and I are going to bring everything we have to this, so get there early.’ – Grace Cummings
