Older Rock’n Rollers

The annual Apia Good Times Tour returns for its fifth consecutive year with another once-in-a-lifetime line-up of Oz music legends including The Black Sorrows with Vika + Linda Bull, Colin Hay (Men at Work), Mental as Anything and Deborah Conway leading the sing-alongs across the country.

Interesting Events for Older Rock’n Rollers in Autumn

Are you looking for interesting events for older Rock’n Rollers in Autumn? You know what they say, “Memories are made of this!”. Frequently, men and women remember their younger days through a particular song or genre. What was playing at their first party, which song they fell in love to, or even led some to propose marriage!

At Gold Age Australia, our beloved residents are of different ages, cultures and vintages. We love them all and we try to cater to their tastes. This covers their rooms, food, drinks, entertainment and outings. Everyone is different and everyone is important. That is why we thought today’s blog might bring back some very happy memories for some of you.

Joe Camilleri and friends in the APIA Good Times Tour

Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows band, together with Vika and Linda Bull, Colin Hay, Deborah Conway and Mental As Anything will be performing at Hamer Hall on May 26th, 2017. The Show starts at 8 p.m. Duration: 2 hours 40 minutes, including 20 minute interval

Melbourne is very different from other cities in Australia. Because of it’s difficult, changeable weather, people are attracted to indoor venues. In autumn and winter we crave hot coffee and hot chocolate, heartwarming soups and stews and big roast dinners. We also need indoor entertainment to escape the chilly winds that tunnel down our grid- style city.


That is also why we love our entertainers because we would get bored just sitting around talking. And Joe Camilleri has been known as a rock legend in every baby boomer’s memory. He has won many awards, but his MO Award was the first major award he won for male rock performer in 1991. It is apparently his favourite. However, he insists he didn’t sign up to collect pointy things, he signed up to play music. And apparently the people of Melbourne agreed with him because he’s been a favourite for a very long time.

However there is more than one side to this rock’n’roller. He first made his name with Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons. Then, about a dozen years ago he bought his home in St Kilda. It was a bit of a wreck, and a bit scary. In fact so scary he called in a priest to bless it. Just to make sure he also called in a house clearing psychic to move on any unhappy spirits.

Today, he is the happy owner of a two-storey Edwardian which he has renovated. Furthermore, it might come as a bit of a surprise to some of his fans that he has a deep interest in art, history, design and architecture as well as music.


The annual Apia Good Times Tour returns for its 5th consecutive year.  This year’s line-up of Oz music legends includes, as well as Vika and Linda Bull, Colin Hay (Men at Work), Mental as Anything and Deborah Conway.

They will be performing hits including ‘Harley & Rose’, ‘Chained to the Wheel’, ‘Hold on to Me’, ‘Down Under’, ‘Who Can It Be Now?’. Followed by ‘Overkill’, ‘Nips Are Getting Bigger’, ‘Live it Up’, ‘Too Many Times’, ‘It’s Only The Beginning’ and ‘Man Overboard’, to name just a few. Each artist will perform a solo set of their hits before joining in an extraordinary finale with all four sharing the stage.

Should you decide to attend this concert with your “older” but young at heart loved one, we hope you will have a wonderful evening. So, from all of us here at Gold Age Australia, we wish you as always good health and happiness. Don’t forget to check our blogs daily; we have new ones for you constantly. Bye for now.
