Age is no barrier for Red Hot Summer sell-out shows

Red Hot Summer pulled another record crowd for Noosa this past weekend with three artists over 60 and who can still pull 10,000+ fans to a show.

Season three of Red Hot Summer features Daryl Braithwaite (70), John Farnham (69) and Todd Hunter of Dragon (67). All three acts consistently perform live year in, year out.

John Farnham has his first hit ‘Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)’ 52 years ago. Daryl Braithwaite was a member of Sherbet when he first cracked the charts with ‘Can You Feel It Baby’ in 1972. Todd Hunter’s first chart record was Dragon’s ‘This Time’ in 1977, 42 years ago.

Australian rock veterans are having some of their biggest successes at the moment. 70-year-old Russell Morris debuted at no 12 on the ARIA Chart this week with ‘Black and Blue Heart’. At 70 Joe Camilleri debuted at no 12 on the ARIA Chart last week with the Black Sorrows ‘Citizen John’. In February, Brain Cadd returned to the Australian charts with is ‘Silver City’ album at age 72.

Age has not hindered Red Hot Summer. Founder Duane McDonald says, “the legacy of these artists was built over decades. They have trained on the stage like athletes on a field to hone these musical skills. Their song catalogues have contributed to Australian rock culture. It is my pleasure to present these acts to the fans and watch the fans each week love it”.

The 2019 season of Red Hot Summer is concluding in Queensland over the coming weeks.

The remaining Farnham Red Hot Summer shows are:

April 20, Rockhampton
April 27, Cairns
