Sarah Blasko @ Elisabeth Murdoch Hall
What better way to re-start the live music experience than catching one of your perennial live faves at one of your favourite Melbourne venues.
Vera Blue and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra @ Hamer Hall
After officially breaking the live music drought with the Candlelight concert, I thought I’d take a chance on this collaboration between the Australian songstress and the MSO.
Beethoven by Candlelight @ The Athenaeum
After the Year Live Music Died, it was wonderful to finally attend a concert again.
U2 @ Adelaide Oval
After the Melbourne show rocked my world last week, I was even more excited for my second U2 concert in Adelaide and it was worth every cent spent. Different city, same awesome show from a different perspective.
U2 @ Marvel Stadium
The Joshua Tree tour finally landed in Melbourne! I danced, I sang, I lost my voice, I had an absolute ball finally watching my favourite band live again.
Hans Zimmer @ Rod Laver Arena
I had an absolute blast at the last Hans Zimmer concert a couple of years ago, so I jumped at the chance to experience his film score arena extravaganza once again.
Katy Perry @ Rod Laver Arena
Definitely an odd one out for me, but it’s been ages since I’ve been to a big flashy show, and this concert was a fun night out and everything you’d want from an arena pop spectacular. Dancers, costume changes, flying props oh my!
Gogol Bordello @ 170 Russell
I first saw Gogol Bordello almost exactly eight years ago, and that was honestly one of the most fun and memorable gigs I’ve been to. So when this rowdy transcontinental gypsy-punk eight-piece collective showed up in Melbourne once again, I jumped at the chance to catch them in concert.
Grizzly Bear @ Melbourne Zoo
No I’m not talking about the large subspecies of brown bear inhabiting North America, but rather the American indie rock band, whose live show at the Melbourne Zoo grounds I got to enjoy.
