Seniors Week Premier’s
I2017 Seniors Week celebrations, now in its 59th year. We had the hottest tickets in town to the Premier's Gala Concert. Held at the new Convention Centre Darling Harbour, it was a chance for most of us to experience this latest venue.
Kate Ceberano, Damien Leith, Andrew O'Keefe and a trio called The Diamonds and a group called The Boys in the Band thoroughly entertained us singing songs we all remember - Roy Orbison, Elvis, Johnny Cash, ABBA, The 4 Seasons, Etta James, The Bee Gees, and numerous medleys from various artists which had the entire audience clapping, singing and toe tapping along. Personally, my hi-lights were Damien singing Danny Boy and Crying.
The final two songs - I still call Australia Home (Peter Allen) and Shout (Johnny O'Keefe) brought the whole house down.
After the concert we then attended the Seniors Festival Expo next door, where we obtained lots of information about the latest things to help seniors:- seniors living, care, hearing aids, gadgets and much more.
It was another wonderful day out
