Bruce Milne Is Rolling Out His Magical Mystery Tour For Melbourne Again

Bruce Milne’s ‘Melbourne Music Bus Tour’ is kicking off again this month.

Bruce has been running the Melbourne Music Bus Tour over past years as part of the Leaps & Bounds music festival. It has now become a feature of the Australian Music Vault via Arts Centre Melbourne.

The tour visits Melbourne’s historic music sites, Armstrong Studios; Bakehouse Studios; Champion Hotel; Crystal Ballroom; the Dogs in Space house; The Espy; The Exford; Faraday Street; Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum’s house; Muchmore Ballroom; Mushroom Records; the Nylex Clock sign; the Old Greek Theatre; the Palace; Punters Club; Richmond Recorders; Sing Sing Studios; Tiger Lounge and the Venue. The tour will also travel to Chrissy Amphlett Lane, Charcoal Lane, Rowland S. Howard Lane and AC/DC Lane.

“There’s musical history on every street and corner of Melbourne,” Bruce Milne says. “There’s colourful (sometimes outrageous) tales too. I have stories to tell but I love to hear stories from other people as well. Get on the bus and let’s explore and share- and have some fun.”

Melbourne is a unique music city boasting the highest number of music venues per capita in the world. Melbourne Victoria claims there are 564 live music venues in Melbourne.

“Music fans and the broader community generally only get to experience Melbourne music from the band room side of the stage but on this tour they will go back stage at venues and discuss the history from early artists like AC/DC to Skyhooks, Nick Cave to Olivia Newton John, Archie Roach and Ruby Hunter to Dave Graney and Claire Moore. These music tourists are able to step into real experiences…I should point out that these tours are actually great fun as well,” says Bakehouse Studios co-founder Quincy McLean.
