The TV WEEK Logie Awards today confirmed an all-star line of Australian music greats – Jimmy Barnes, Jessica Mauboy and Tim Minchin – to perform at this year’s event on the Gold Coast next Sunday 19 June.
Australian icon Jimmy Barnes is currently celebrating 30 years of Soul Deep, the classic album that also marked his foray into the soul genre putting his unique spin on timeless classics. The trailblazing collection is certified 10 times platinum in Australia, won the 1992 ARIA Awards for Best Male Artist and Highest Selling Album, and remains the highest-selling album ever for both Jimmy Barnes and Mushroom Records. This iconic collection has now been re-imagined and extended for its anniversary suitably titled Soul Deep 30 and is available now.
Jimmy said: “We’re really looking forward to staging these Soul Deep Anniversary gigs – I love playing all those classic songs. Unfortunately, it’s such a big show that we can’t take it right around the country so the Logies will be a great way to let everyone across Australia get a small taste of these special shows.”
The TV WEEK Logie Awards red carpet show kicks off at 7pm Sunday 19 June and is this year being hosted by Leila McKinnon, David Campbell and Renee Bargh. Leila, David and Renee will have the best seat in the house to show viewers at home all the razzle, dazzle and glamour of TV’s night of nights.
The 62nd TV WEEK Logie Awards will take place on Sunday, June 19, within The Star Gold Coast Entertainment Precinct at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The Queensland Government, via Tourism and Events Queensland, is proud to support the TV WEEK Logie Awards which features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar. The TV WEEK Logies Awards is also proudly supported by Major Events Gold Coast.
