The 2017 Zoo Twilights line-ups are here, with some big names ready to play Sydney’s Taronga Zoo and Melbourne Zoo over summer.
The action kicks off at both venues on Friday January 27, with an entertainment program boasting a predominantly local flavour.
Peter Garrett & The Alter Egos are in, but so too are the likes of Ball Park Music, Killing Heidi, The Jungle Giants, The Rubens, party starters Bjorn Again and, in a series of reunion shows, george.
US performer Kurt Vile is also in, along with Canadian acts Martha Wainwright and auspOp favourites Tegan and Sara.
Each zoo also gets its own exclusive acts too; Twilight At Taronga score Kasey Chambers, Jet, James Morrison Big Band and Teenage Fanclub, while Melbourne Zoo gets Warpaint, Paul Dempsey, Hoodoo Gurus and The Specials.
Not only will you get to see a great live show in the beautiful surrounds of each zoo, but you’ll also be doing your it in the fight for animal conservation; profits from the Sydney shows go to the Taronga Conservation Society Australia and funds from the Melbourne show will be funnelled into saving the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, which is now extinct in the wild.
Tickets for all shows are on sale from 9am on Tuesday October 25.
