The concert will feature three hours of hits and memories with 10 of Australia’s most well-loved 70s, 80s and 90s hit makers gracing the stage and taking a whole generation back in time. 

The event is being presented by Forever Classic 2GN and general manager Gail Bowdern said it was exciting to be bringing such acts to Goulburn. 

“People say nothing ever happens around here but now these legendary music artists are coming to town,” Ms Bowdern said. 

“We don’t have to travel to see them and some of the best classic hits from the 80’s will be live on our doorstep. 

“We play their songs on air all the time, to have them in town, for one event on the same day is awesome.” 

The Goulburn Workers Club has also been instrumental in getting the event here and CEO Brett Gorham said it may become an ongoing event. 

“Goulburn Workers Club are proud to be presenting the inaugural Classic Hits Live concert,” Mr Gorham said. 

“Featuring an array of classic Australian rock bands performing their biggest hits.

“This event is an exciting opportunity for the people of Goulburn and surrounding areas to experience live music in a festival environment.

“With the support of the Goulburn community we are hoping that this may become an ongoing event.”

Some of the artists are no strangers to Goulburn, with Mark Gable, Ross Wilson, Dragon and 1927 all playing here in recent years.

There is a Goulburn connection to The Radiators in Brendan Callinan – the original keyboard player with the band. 

The concert is on at the Goulburn Workers Arena on Saturday, October 13 from 3pm, with the concert starting at 4.30pm. This is a fully licensed 18+ event with no BYO.
