This year signifies a series of important anniversaries. Fifty years since the Beatles came to Melbourne and we are also celebrating 60 years of our beloved Moomba.

It is another music milestone as to celebrate there will be a concert featuring some of the all time greats of the Australian music scene: Daryl Braithwaite, Joe Camilleri, James Reyne and Ross Wilson.

This free concert is the one they toured with in 2013 called Time of My Life which was sell out success.

The fact that the guys are in their 60s, are looking great and are also icons of the Australian music scene are all factors that, no doubt, encouraged the organisers to choose this show to mark this important milestone.

These legends have so many hits between them that without them the Australian music scene would probably have never got off the ground.

Joe Camilleri performed with the The Falcons and The Black Sorrows and was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame for his contribution to Australian music. James Reyne, who was the front man for Australian Crawl, has also been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. Ross Wilson is famous because of Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock. His songs such as Eagle Rock and Come Back Again are legendary. He also wrote A Touch of Paradise John Farnham's signature song. Daryl Braithwaite was the lead singer for Sherbet and he is remembered for such classics as Howzat and Summer Love.

These legendary singers will be playing each night of the Moomba festival at 8pm

They will play on the Main Arena stage and the show will include a selection of each artist's famous songs and then a grand finale where they all join together to sing.

At the end of their concert each night there will be a fantastic fireworks display which is synchronised to a special Moomba soundtrack.

This foursome are likely to draw a real crowd from baby boomers right down. Hell, even my teenager has a signed poster of Ross Wilson on his wall above his malingering drum set.

Because you are never too young and absolutely never, never too old to rock n' roll.
