Orange City Council is pleased to announce the city will host a performance by internationally-renowned band, the Beach Boys. The Beach Boys, supported by Motown super-group, the Temptations, will perform at Orange’s Wade Park on 12 February 2017.
Orange mayor John Davis said he is delighted that Orange is one of only three regional centres in NSW to score a Beach Boys performance during the band’s 2017 national tour. “Orange has just spent the last week welcoming thousands of visitors to the Australian National Field Days and to this year’s Orange Wine Festival,” Cr John Davis said.
“Visitors have a major impact on the Orange economy. That’s why the council has been focused on attracting major sporting events, such as the NRL pre-season game and the Big Bash cricket match.” “Music is another major drawcard for Australians of all ages and to be able to present a band like the ‘Beach Boys’ will be a fantastic opportunity for the city of Orange. I’m expecting the $20,000 sponsorship that Orange City Council will be putting into this event will be well worth it when compared to the economic impact of bringing thousands of people to Orange from across the region.”
Tickets for the event, part of the Surf and Soul national tour, are now available from Ticketek.
The Beach Boys are led by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston, who along with Jeff Foskett, Tim Bonhomme, John Cowsill, Brian Eichenberger and Scott Totten continue the legacy of the iconic American band. This tour will not feature Brian Wilson, Al Jardine or David Marks.
