Russell Morris performed a sold-out night one at Hamer Hall in the Arts Centre Melbourne on Monday 30 October 2023. The 75-year-old Australian music legend entertained the 2,500 people in attendance with his music and stories, backed by his 10-piece band and a 54-piece symphony orchestra.

Morris is still best known for his classic psychedelic debut solo single The Real Thing from March 1969, written by Johnny Young and produced by Molly Meldrum. His illustrious recording career has since presented a smorgasbord of genres and styles. He was inducted into both the ARIA Hall of Fame and the Australian Songwriters’ Hall of Fame in the 2000s.
