AN Australian-first event aimed at kick-starting the COVID-19 affected live music scene is coming to Armidale next month.
Tickets have gone on sale for the Great Southern Nights gigs, a State Government initiative to aid the recovery of the live music, hospitality and tourism industries.
"No industry has been more affected by COVID-19 social gathering restrictions than our vibrant performing arts scene," Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said.
"In order to give our musos a much needed boost, ticketed gigs are going to be held throughout November at Charlie's Last Stand and the Welders Dog in Armidale."
Over three nights, live music lovers can settle in to some of the best talent regional NSW has to offer with the likes of Fergus James, Ben Leece and Goldheist.
James will peform at Charlie's Last Stand on Friday, November 13, and the following day The Welder's Dog will host live gigs by Ben Leece as well as Smith and Jones.
"These events will motivate visitors to come and enjoy all Armidale has to offer, encouraging them to get out and explore the other restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and attractions," Mr Marshall said.
"I urge people to grab their tickets and get along to support our artists and have a great night."
