Long Way To The Top 2012 will feature Axiom, Brian Cadd, Dragon, Marcia Hines, Col Joye, Masters Apprentices’Jim Keays, Dinah Lee, Mi-Sex, Russell Morris, Ian Moss, Noiseworks, Doug Parkinson, Little Pattie, Glenn Shorrock, Spectrum, Lucky Starr, Chain’s Matt Taylor & Phil Manning, & John Paul Young performing a night of hits including Bye Bye Baby, I’ve Been Everywhere, Needle in a Haystack, Dear Prudence, I Remember When I Was Young, Little Ray of Sunshine, I Hate The Music, Fire & Rain, Real Thing, Are You Old Enough, Take Me Back, Over the Rainbow and Most People I Know Think I’m Crazy.

Promoter Michael Chugg commented, “Well before CDs, itunes and You Tube, Australians were devoted to live concerts, vinyl singles and LPs, and of course un-missable shows like Bandstand, Sounds and Countdown.”

A highlight of the 2012 tour will be Ian Moss paying tribute to Billy Thorpe. “Billy Thorpe was an icon, a freakishly talented bloke who had a huge impact on music history in this country,” says Chugg.

“We miss him terribly and this reunion tour of A Long Way to the Top was a good opportunity to recognize the man, the musician and our mate. We’ve brought Ian Moss on board to perform this special part of the show. How we are going to re-create ‘Billy in the room’ is a moment not to be missed.”

Tickets go on sale on August 10.

Dates are:

October 5, Melbourne, Rod Laver Arena
October 6, Sydney, Entertainment Centre
October 9, Newcastle, Entertainment Centre
October 12, Brisbane, Entertainment Centre
