We had great pleasure in announcing this year’s inductees into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Famelast week with a press conference and lunch at the Palais Theatre. Inductees AC/DCBill ArmstrongJohn FarnhamOlivia Newton-John, Palais Theatre, Archie RoachStan RofeThe SeekersSunbury Festivaland The Thunderbirds shared stories of how they helped create Victoria’s world class music scene. One thing’s for sure: they didn’t have plans for world domination – they just had the passion and worked it out as they went. As Music Victoria Chairman Ashley Admiraal said: we are all standing on the shoulders of giants thanks to their ground breaking work.
 
You can share in this one-off celebration of the story of Victorian music at the Palais Theatre on November 20, with John Farnham and band (in a 30 minute set), Archie Roach, Kate Ceberano, Brian Cadd, Normie Rowe, Colleen Hewett, Vika Bull, Angie Hart, Mark Seymour and more performing songs to celebrate our inductees.
