Join award winning singer Karen Knowles as she takes you on a journey to celebrate the incredible legacy of the music of Olivia Newton John, Judith Durham and Archie Roach.

In the wake of the shock of losing Archie Roach, Judith Durham and Olivia Newton John within 10 days, three iconic pillars in Karen’s life as a singer, Karen has created Under the Milky Way Tonight as an honouring of the love, light and heartfelt contribution these amazing singers made to the fabric of Australia’s musical soul and identity.

Karen has always had a strong affinity with all three artists having grown up singing Olivia’s music on Young Talent Time, touring with the Seekers as their lead singer in the early 1990’s (before Judith returned to the group for the group’s final farewell tours) and through her work with reconciliation she was sincerely so moved by Archie Roach’s musical expression of connection to country. Breathing new life into so many of their most loved songs like Olivia’s I honestly love youHopelessly devoted to you, and Let me be there, Judith’s much loved I’ll never find another you, Morningtown ride and Carnival is Over, and Archie Roach’s gems Native Born, Get back to the land and It’s not too late, this specially curated concert offers Australian audiences an opportunity to celebrate these incredible singers who have formed a large part of the soundtrack of our lives.

Adults $69.00
