This November will see Daddy Cool briefly reform to play a one hour show in celebration of their induction into the Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame.
The show will be held on Wednesday the 19th of November at 170 Russell Street (formerly Billboards). “Daddy Cool has always been about having fun” says frontman Ross Wilson of their reformation, adding “this is not only a prestigious award – it’s a fun thing, getting together with other musicians, people saying nice things about us and having a few free drinks at the end of the night.”
Daddy Cool formed in Melbourne in 1970 – with their debut single ‘Eagle Rock’ instantly hitting number one in 1971. Their subsequent album, Daddy Who? Daddy Cool! was the first Australian album to sell over 100, 000 copies.
The awards will commence at 8:30pm, with Henry Wagons MCing the night. Guest performers will include Russell Morris, Stonefield, Jess Cornelius (Teeth & Tongue), and RocKwiz’s Pete Luscombe and the EG Allstars. Following this will be Daddy Cool’s performance and Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Tickets go on sale Monday August 4th.
Tickets are $50+bf, or $40+bf for Music Victoria members and subscribers to The Age.
