APIA Good Times Tour Has An Historical Line-up for 2017

You know that old saying “they don’t make ‘em like that anymore”, well with artists like the Black Sorrows, Mental As Anything, Deborah Conway and Colin Hay, they really don’t make ‘em like that anymore.

The APIA Good Times tour is brilliant Australian entertainment fro great value. The house was full proving Australians do want to hear Australian music.

The 2017 APIA Good Times tour in Melbourne at Hamer Hall on Friday 26 May 2017 with Deborah Conway, Colin Hay, Mental As Anything, Black Sorrows.

With these four acts the fans were not only treated to an entertaining show but also an historical one. Every single one of these stars has an iconic Australian song in their songbooks.

Deborah Conway opened the show. Deborah is one of Australia’s true stars. Her stage presence captivates the audience. It was a family affair for Deborah with husband Willy Zygier on guitar and occasion vocals from Syd, Alma and Hettie Zygier, their three daughters.

Mental As Anything reminded the audience just how many hits they have had. The number is around two dozen (but who’s counting?).

Colin Hay is funny. Very fucking funny. Hay only got through four songs in his forty minute set because of the banter inbetween but the jokes were as entertaining as the songs and with songs like ‘Down Under’, ‘Overkill’ and later in the encore ‘Who Can It Be Now?’ no-one left disappointed.

Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows gave the evenings most powerful performance, due in part to the lungs of Vika and Linda Bull who delivered one of the bands biggest hits ‘Never Let Me Go’ and lead the encore performance of The Easybeats classic ‘Friday On My Mind’ with the entire cast.

The APIA Good Times tour heads to Newcastle this Wednesday and then to the Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Thirroul in coming weeks before finishing in Launceston and Hobart on June 16 and 17.
