Tasmania is a hit spot for explorers, hikers and travellers but it's also home to some great venues. In the 70s the local industry was given a boost with Australia's first legal casino, The Wrest Point Hotel. Besides being a fantastic place to spend an evening, and a great hotel to spend a night, it's also a state-of-the-art events venue that attracts some of the biggest names to headline in Australia. Bill Bailey, Dylan Moran, Keith Urban, and John Butler are just a few in recent years.
Here are a trio of events coming up in the next couple of months that are worth taking the time to see and there's a mix for everyone:
Jimmy Barnes | Working Class Boy - 3rd February 2017
A chance for a more personal performance from the Australian rock legend. Jimmy's autobiography was one of last year's biggest sellers nation-wide and now he brings an accompanying tour: hear the story from the man himself! Jimmy will be combining song with reading. Sounds different, but a performance that will be closer to his audience than ever before.
Tickets are $99 and available through the app. Download here
B*Witched & Atomic Kitten plus special guests - 15th February 2017
Get ready for 90s nostalgia and groovy tunes! What could be better? B*Witched is coming down from Ireland with their biggest hits and joined by Liverpool girl group, Atomic Kitten. If the band names aren't cool enough, the music has topped charts world wide. Plus they're joined by S Club 3 (it used to be 7 but the songs are the same) and 90s boy band East 17. 90s all the way!
Tickets are just under $90 or you can meet & greet with a VIP (no queues!) ticket for $205.50! Check out the app listing by downloading here.
Oh What a Night - 2nd March 2017
And what a night this should be: Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons return in a cover band coming to us from Vegas. It's scripted, planned and choreographed, so if you loved hits like 'Oh What a Night' and 'Walk Like a Man', here's a chance to hear them anew. If you've NEVER heard of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (where have you been?) then this is a perfect intro to the legends.
Tickets are $59.50, download the app to find out more!
Plus there's more! Keep hold of the app for upcoming performances from comedians like Arj Barker and Stephen K Amos, as well as music from John Williamson, Harrison Craig and incredible covers of Adele and Johnny Cash. (Secret tip: we'll be giving away free tickets to a lot of these so follow our Facebook page here!)
You can also add to the Wrest Point adventure by spending a night in a 4.5 star room with stunning views as well as dining at one of their selection of waterfront restaurants. An essential visit is the hotel's revolving restaurant on the 17th floor, overlooking the views from the highest building of the city!
