The Stevie Wright farewell will take place at Sydney’s St Andrews Cathedral on January 8.

Wright, the legendary Easybeats singer and songwriter, died in the New South Wales coastal town of Moruya on December 27 from complications to pneumonia. He was 68.

The funeral of Stevie Wright is planned to be a celebration of the life of Australia’s first true international rock star. Wright rose to fame as singer for The Easybeats and cracked the US and UK Top 10 with the now classic ‘Friday On My Mind’ in 1966.

The pioneering Sydney band also featured Harry Vanda and George Young, who would go on to be the powerhouse songwriting team behind hits for John Paul Young, Wright as a solo act in the 70s and their own creation Flash & The Pan.

Stevie as a solo act would generate one of the greatest Aussie rock songs of all-time in ‘Evie Parts 1, 2 and 3’.

As per the family wishes, the funeral of Stevie Wright will be open to all family, friends and fans.

The Stevie Wright funeral will be held at St Andrews Cathedral, corner of George and Bathurst St, Sydney at 11am on January 8, 2016.
