The Greatest Southern Nights

with special guest Matt Corby
Support from Merci, Mercy

In great news for fans of live music, TEG Live and Live Nation Australia have teamed up with the New South Wales Government to present The Greatest Southern Nights - a limited series of COVID safe shows at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena this Summer.
On Saturday December 5th Bernard Fanning will headline this historic return to live music. Bernard has accumulated one of the most celebrated and distinct songbooks on the Australian rock spectrum. A multi-award winning and platinum selling artist, his solo career now spanning 15 years, Fanning has firmly cemented his position as one of Australia’s finest songwriters and lyricists. From the country folk-tinged charm of his multi-platinum debut solo album Tea and Sympathy to the rock grooves and horn breaks of its follow up Departures and the exquisitely crafted Civil Dusk / Brutal Dawn - a two-part album series released across 2016 and 2017.
Joining him for this very special evening will be Matt Corby. For a decade, the multi-platinum-selling musician has been pushing his own boundaries, embracing a journey of self-discovery that’s seen him wrestle a few pre-conceptions and stare down his share of demons. With two ARIA Song of the Year awards and a #1 debut album behind him, Corby can genuinely lay claim to some hard-earned perspective.  

With support from the wonderful Merci, Mercy, an affordable ticket price and a city of five million people eager for live music, this is sure to be a night to remember.

The Greatest Southern Nights event series is a co-promotion between TEG Live and Live Nation Australia, with support from the New South Wales Government, and marks the crescendo of NSW’s Great Southern Nights initiative to kick-start the recovery of the live music, hospitality and tourism industries which have been so dramatically impacted by the pandemic. 
This concert will be held with a commitment to a COVID Safe environment, with a reduced capacity of just over 6,000 in a venue that can normally hold around 21,000 fans. TEG LIVE and Live Nation will work closely with and comply with all requirements of the public health authorities in respect to these shows. While operating at reduced capacity, this event will mark the largest indoor music event held in Australia since the shutdown of the live entertainment industry in March, due to the pandemic.

Tickets are priced at $99.90 and go on sale at 10:00am on Tuesday 10 November via
Ticketek Australia is the only authorised seller.
Do not pay more than the prices listed for your tickets.
