It was 12 years ago that RocKwiz saluted the Sidney Myer Music Bowl as part of its 50th anniversary celebration but now RocKwiz’s Really Really Good Friday makes its triumphant debut at the iconic venue as part of Live at the Bowl on Friday 2 April.
“We’re all flooded with memories of rock concerts we’ve seen there, but of course inspired by the big show we did there in March 2009; a sweltering night when Melbourne was getting over a hot summer of bushfires. We came together as a big, rowdy family for music, quizzing and pure fun to shake off the sadness of recent events. Sound familiar?” asks co-host Brian Nankervis.
After four years of their hugely popular Good Friday performances at Hamer Hall, co-hosts Brian Nankervis and Julia Zemiro could not be more excited to take the fifth instalment to the Bowl. They will be joined on stage by the beloved RocKwiz Orkestra and The Wolfgramm Sisters.
“To say I have missed performing with my RocKwiz brothers and sisters would be an understatement! I will be holding back tears when I step out on stage to a beautiful audience once again at the magnificent Bowl! Get ready to Rock!” says Zemiro.
Despite the cancellation of last year’s performance due to the pandemic, this highly anticipated Easter weekend staple returns better than ever. With the Bowl’s new COVIDSafe layout of private decks, the venue is perfectly set up for music trivia tragics to gather their brains-trust and enjoy everything they love about pub-quiz trivia in safety.
“Putting on our traditional Easter RocKwiz extravaganza at the Bowl is very exciting – a tonic for the RocKwiz gang to be back there! To have the opportunity to step out from the salubrious and sophisticated Hamer Hall, venture across St Kilda Road, through the gardens, up a hill and into the outdoor wonderland that is the Sidney Myer Music Bowl is a huge thrill!” says Nankervis.
“Come on people, join us in this magnificent space for a very special night. We need this!”
Tickets will go on sale from 11am, Thursday 25 February via liveatthebowl.com.au
