This show is a tribute to The Eagles and their fabulous music, when rock in the 70's was at its best. Five accomplished singers and musicians will take you down memory lane with greatest hits and a special praise to the voice of Hotel California's Don Henley.
In a club with lots of entertainment and several dining options, dinner is a feature with this show and your ticket includes a two-course meal plus a three drink passport for house beer, wine or soft drink.
Presented by Good Weekend, this celebration of food, wine and opera is an evening under the stars with music from great composers, such as Mozart, Verdi and Puccini. Performed by Natalie Aroyan, Greta Bradman, David Hobson and Richard Troxell with The Metropolitan Orchestra, the heart and emotions will be stirred.
Another tribute show, this time to David Bowie, and set in the great outdoors amongst vineyards with world-renowned conductor George Ellis leading the charge of the Australian Symphony Orchestra and the Ziggy Band, which features members of Jimmy Barnes' band, The Badloves, Baby Animals and The Whitlams.
