MUSIC FROM THE HOME FRONT - TOMORROW NIGHT


As Australia and New Zealand prepare to commemorate Anzac Day amid the COVID-19 crisis even more artists have joined the lineup for Music From The Home Front.

The televised concert event is being staged as a thank you for those who have served our country and frontline workers.

Hosted by Newshub anchor Mike McRoberts, New Zealanders can watch on Three or stream live on ThreeNow at 9.30pm.

The following artists have been added to the lineup (in alphabetical order); Andrew Farriss (INXS), Archie Roach, Bic Runga, Bliss N Eso, Diesel, Emma Donovan, Guy Sebastian, Jack River, John Schumann & the Vagabond Crew, Jon Stevens, Kings, Lee Kernaghan, Lime Cordiale, Tones And I, Troy Cassar-Daley and Vince Harder.

In what is set to be a show highlight, Marlon Williams has confirmed he will perform iconic New Zealand waiata ‘Pokarekare Ana’.

Composed as a love song by Paraire Henare Tomoana around the time of World War I, Pokarekare Ana was sung by Māori soldiers at the time and continues to be well loved throughout Aotearoa. Michael Gudinski said: “With more announcements to come for tomorrow, Music From The Home Front is just getting bigger and bigger.

This is one gig where we don’t have to worry about the weather!” Just like a normal concert, Music From The Home Front will be selling merch via musicfromthehomefront.com/merch. Profits from sales will go to Support Act (Australia) or MusicHelpsLive (New Zealand).

At this gig, there are no queues, no bag checks, no waiting at the bar or food stands. This concert is 100% contact free home delivered, so get ready to kick back and enjoy a great night of music from some of Australia and New Zealand’s greatest musicians.
