John Farnham will headline Saturday’s Red Hot Summer Tour.Dubbo’s Lazy River Estate will be full to bursting on Saturday, with Red Hot Summer Tour promoter Duane McDonald expecting a sell-out.
There were just 22 of the 5000tickets remaining as of Wednesday morning, and Mr McDonald expected them to be snapped up by Thursday evening.
“For a regional city it’s fantastic and that’ll top out a clean sweep – the whole tour will be sold out for the John Farnham shows,” he said.
It’s the second time the Red Hot Summer Tour has played in Dubbo after debuting at Lazy River Estate in 2016.
Last year’s event was also a sell-out, which proved Dubbo “is obviously a music town”, Mr McDonald said.
Dubbo Regional Council administrator Michael Kneipp said it was a coup for the city.
“We would love to have one every year because we’re seeing through the Dubbo theatre and a number of functions that really does bring money to town,” Mr Kneipp said.
“It’s another cultural offering that the town has. This city has a wonderful array of events and to have the Red Hot Summer Tour back in town is just fantastic.
“We haven’t got a definite amount but certainly we can do some modelling, from the hoteliers and those sorts of things, we can come up with a formula that says it’s worth many, many hundreds of thousands dollars.”
Mr McDonald said it was “great to see motels, restaurants and cafes full when you drive through town”.
“We try to get local people involved when it comes to the catering, the set up and cleaning,” he said.
“That’s what it’s all about, especially for the smaller, regional areas.”
Temperatures climbed to 36.9 degrees at last year’s event, and Mr McDonald said “everyone got really cooked”.
He was grateful 2017 would be something of a less hot summer tour.
“The weather looks like it’s a little bit better,” Mr McDonald said.
“Isee that you’ve been in the 40s for the last few weeks but I think it’s saying 31 which I think will be well received.”
Organisers will spend Thursday and Friday setting up, and constructing the stage.
Gates will open on Saturday at 2pm, with the opening act to begin at 3pm and the final act –John Farnham–to begin at 8:30pm. Visit梧桐夜网redhotsummertour南京夜网419论坛/for more information.
