Under the Southern Stars promoter Andrew McManus announced today the Gold and Sunshine Coast shows scheduled for January 2019 will now be all-ages events.
Younger fans of Sheppard will no doubt be rejoicing in today’s announcement. The Brisbane superstars join ARIA Hall Of Fame inductees Hoodoo Gurus along with Australian rock royalty You Am I, The Superjesus, British India, The Getaway Plan and Scott Darlow at Broadwater Parklands on 19 January.
“We know there are a myriad of younger fans of Sheppard that would love to attend Under The Southern Stars and see their favourite band play on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast in January 2019,” says Andrew McManus.
“We are thrilled we can welcome some of these younger fans to the Queensland shows so they can be a part of our summer festival series, which is returning to the Gold Coast for the second year and to the Sunshine Coast for the very first time in 2019.”
Sheppard are equally thrilled to be able to play to some of their younger fans in this festival environment alongside some of the best Australian musicians of our time.
“We’re thrilled to hear that the Qld shows for Under The Southern Stars will be all ages. We love playing to music fans across all age groups and this is a special opportunity for some of our younger fans to see us on stage with some great Australian bands. Can’t wait to see you all in January on the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast.” said Sheppard.
