The Melbourne Music Bus Tour is continuing through until July with tour guide Bruce Milne taking right to the door of where music history happened in Australia’s music capital.

Bruce Milne is a stalwart of the Melbourne music scene. Bruce was around for the origins for Triple R, he founded record story and record label Au-go-go Records, ran The Tote and is now a co-owner of Greville Records.

Bruce leads each tour through the streets of Melbourne showing music fans Melbourne’s rich history around Dundas Lane, the home of Mushroom, Clarendon Street where Daddy Cool filmed the ‘Eagle Rock’ clip, Charcoal Lane, immortalised in the Archie Roach song, the Nylex Clock where Paul Kelly filmed ‘Leaps and Bounds’, the old Channel 9 studios where Skyhooks and Billy Thorpe recorded and past the Richmond Terrace house where ‘Dogs In Space’ was filmed.

The Melbourne Music Bus tour is only on once a month from the Arts Centre Melbourne. The bus can take 22 passengers and the tour runs for approximately 3 hours 30 minutes.
