Dennis Smith Presents GO!! SHOW GOLD, THE ULTIMATE REUNION CONCERT, is back in 2017 and features the biggest ever line up!!!  G0!! Show Gold returns in 2017 with a sensational line up of Australian music legends to rock the Palais Theatre on Saturday 2 December.

The anticipation for the return in 2017 of GO!! Show Gold has been enormous.  This  highly anticipated concert will feature the biggest ever line up of Australian music royalty who became household names in the 60’s.

Belting out their classic hits for Go!! Show Gold in  2017 will be:

Johnny Young, Normie Rowe, Ronnie Burns, Doug Parkinson, Little Pattie, Lucky Starr, Ross D Wyllie, Colleen Hewett, Issi Dye, Barry Smith (from the Town Criers) and one of Melbourne’s favourite groups The Mixtures.

The Go!! Show was a ground-breaking phenomenon when it first went to air 53 years ago, introducing live and local music to a new generation of music fans.  It hit television screens in 1964 hot on the heels of the lifestyle shattering tour of The Beatles, creating the perfect vehicle for a stable of local teen stars and changing the lives of generations of Baby Boomers.

GO!! SHOW GOLD creates a perfect reflection of these times. With the energy and excitement from performers still at the peak of their talent, we guarantee the audience a night of great music and wonderful memories.
