Perth will play host to the first major concert since Western Australia moved to enter Phase 4 of its post-COVID isolation road map, with a concert called WA Unlocked announced for July.
Set to go down at HBF Stadium, WA Unlocked will feature a lineup of local acts, with performances by Crooked Colours, Slumberjack, ShockOne, Reija Lee and Tina Says.
The concert is being organised by Zaccaria Concerts and Touring, working together with VenuesWest to help restart the music economy in Western Australia.
“It’s so exciting to see the live entertainment industry get back on its feet so quickly with this amazing event,” COO of VenuesWest Peter Bauchop told themusic.
“I acknowledge the assistance provided by Zaccaria Concerts and Touring, who together with VenuesWest recognize the importance of supporting local music and the event industry.
“This is just the first of many concerts that will be held at a VenuesWest venue in support of music in WA, giving the local economy a much needed boost.”
“Our phased approach has allowed us to get more Western Australians back to work and into more social and recreational activities, as together we continue to kick-start WA’s economy,” said WA Premier Mark McGowan last week.
“It’s because of the incredible effort of all Western Australians that we’ve been able to reach each phase and continue to lead the states in relaxing restrictions.”
