Mitchelton Winery managing director Andrew Ryan is excited by the line-up for December's A Day on the Green concert.
Aussie rock icon Jimmy Barnes will headline Mitchelton Winery’s inaugural A Day on the Green concert in December.
The line-up, announced today, also includes Barnsey’s daughter Mahalia Barnes and the Soulmates, his former Cold Chisel bandmate Ian Moss, punk rockers The Living End, and country singer Troy Cassar-Daley.
Mitchelton Winery managing director Andrew Ryan said he was excited by the line-up.
‘‘When we did a Facebook poll to ask what artist people would like to see, Jimmy Barnes came up number one,’’ Mr Ryan said.
‘‘He’s got a good following. And The Living End as well and then Ian Moss, we’re looking forward to it. It’s going to be a really fun show,’’ Mr Ryan said.
He said the winery had spent more than $250
The upgrades included levelling and reseeding a large terraced amphitheatre with Goulburn River frontage and creating parking space for a minimum of 2000 cars as well as roads for semi-trailers to access stage and production areas.
Since 2001, A Day on the Green has presented almost 350 shows across Australia featuring international and local artists including Leonard Cohen, Hunters and Collectors and Fleetwood Mac.
Venues have included Rutherglen’s All Saints Estate and Yarra Valley’s Rochford Wines.
A Day on the Green promoters Melbourne-based Roundhouse Entertainment director Michael Newton said Mitchelton was a top-class site.
‘‘I think it is one of the best venues we have — the winery grounds, the river and the architecture is something really special,’’ Mr Newton said.
December’s concert coincides with the release of Barnes’ 30th anniversary album 30/30 Anniversary, which features collaborations with his friends including Keith Urban, John Farnham, Bernard Fanning, Journey and more.
The Living End features on the album’s first single with a new version of Barnes’ 1990 hit Lay Down Your Guns released today.
The Living End is the special guest on all Barnes’ A Day on The Green shows.
Barnes said he was excited about working with the band.
‘‘They’re just so bloody good. They’re so ferocious as a band .
Mr Newton said the Mitchelton concert would be a special celebration of Barnes’ career, with fans to be invited on stage to spin a wheel made up of 30 of his classic tracks to decide which song the band would play next.
