A bumper crowd of more than 3,500 people crammed the Mulwala Water Ski Club foreshore to hear the cream of rock music perform on Australia Day for the Red Hot Summer Tour.FIONA BLICK January 30, 2014 9:27am
Every nook and cranny of the lagoon was filled with concert goers and a flotilla of boats floated beyond the perimeter.
CEO Peter Duncan said he was thrilled with whole day from the behaviour of the concert goers to the exceptional performances from the musicians.
“This year’s Red Hot Summer Tour at the Mulwala Water Ski Club was another huge success,” Mr Duncan said.
“The crowd was well behaved and good feedback has been received.
“The whole weekend was excellent and the concert concluded a very successful holiday period for the club.”
Veteran Aussie muso’s Russell Morris and Joe Camilleri were consummate professionals, giving their all in recreating the sounds of their past beloved hits plus some new numbers as well.
Shannon Noll once again gave a rousing performance, each song laced with his own particular brand of soul-searching rock with a little bit of country thrown in.
The Angels were a stand out and Dave Gleeson, of The Screaming Jets fame, proved he was an inspired choice as ‘replacement’ for the critically ill front man Doc Neeson.
Gleeson made each song his own and had the capacity crowd chanting and singing along to every number; the highlight being ‘Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again’ which received a standing ovation.
Rock goddess Suzi Quatro was the final act for the evening and she didn’t disappoint.
Her professionalism and slick performance style showed her to be a consummate musician with each number moving seamlessly into the next and Suzi’s delight at being on stage was apparent to one and all.
