Starting his career in the 1970s as the frontman for Sherbet, Daryl Braithwaite was crowned King of Pop and the band produced 20 national Top 40 singles. Songs like 'Howzat' and 'Summer Love' became ingrained in the national psyche. In the 1980’s Daryl set out on his own solo career, kicking off with the smash hit album Edge featuring singles such as 'One Summer' and 'As The Days Go By'. His follow-up album Rise spawned the single 'The Horses', a song which never fails to get massive audience participation.
Ross Wilson & the Peaceniks
Ross Wilson really needs no introduction to music lovers. As the force behind bands such as Mondo Rock and Daddy Cool, he has been twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. The Daddy Cool classic 'Eagle Rock' is one of the biggest rock hits to come out of Australia and other songs from the band such as 'Come Back Again' are crowd favourites. Wilson has also had success as a solo artist and a prolific career as a songwriter, penning tracks that have been covered by a swag of artists.

Returning to Qantas Credit Union Arena for the last time – one night only!
John Farnham has announced today that he will be performing at the Qantas Credit Union Arena (formerly known as Sydney Entertainment Centre) on Wednesday, 16 December 2015 for one show only to farewell the much-loved venue.
John holds the record for the most performances at the Qantas Credit Union Arena by an Australian artist and this special, farewell concert will take that number to 76. Including his solo shows (40), John has appeared on stage at the Arena with Jesus Christ Superstar (26), The Main Event shows with Olivia Newton-John and Anthony Warlow (8) and most recently on the Two Strong Hearts tour, once again with Olivia Newton-John.
John’s unmatchable record with the Qantas Credit Union Arena was honoured in 2002 when the venue named its VIP function room after him.
“I’ve been playing the Arena for over 30 years now and they’ve been some of my most fun and memorable shows. I can’t wait to get back and raise the roof one last time – get ready for one hell of a farewell party!” John said.
John Farnham, AO is one of Australia’s most successful artists and has been “The Voice” of Australian music for over 30 years. In September 1967, at the age of 18, he was signed to a recording contract and in December of that year released the single, Sadie the Cleaning Lady, which became the biggest-selling single in Australia at that time. A string of hits following including One, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, Help, Pressure Down, Burn for You and the anthem, You're The Voice, which sold a million copies in Europe and reached the Top 10 in England. His watershed album, Whispering Jack, held the No. 1 position on the Australian album charts for a total of 25 weeks, and is still the highest-selling album in Australian history.
John’s most recent album release, Two Strong Hearts Live, spent three weeks at No. 1 on the ARIA Album chart. The companion DVD is scheduled for release on 21 August 2015, ahead of its exclusive premier screening on Channel 9 on Sunday, 23 August – the night before tickets go on sale.
John’s special guests for this final show are Daryl Braithwaite and Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks.
Tickets for this one night only, farewell show go on sale at 10am on Monday, 24 August and are expected to sell fast!
