Excited to have a gig closer to home - Werribee Park. I have never been down here to visit the zoo, the Mansion or anything here. What a fantastic place it is
The concert was in the grounds of the Mansion. It was set up in typical fashion with footstalls and bars set up around the outsides. There was a long queue formed outside waiting for gates to open. Some of us had paid $80 for a ticket while others had received them for free if they were in the audience of Hey Hey last night when Jimmy was on. All were there for a good time!
When gates opened the crowd rushed in, which way to go - follow the path as told or cut across the grass? I took the shortest way - across the grass. It was a beautiful, warm sunny day and it was nice to sit in the sun and relax while we waited.
Michael Spiby came on and played for a short while, he played a couple of Badloves; songs I recognised. After that Mahaila and the Soulmates entertained us with their set. Vanessa Amorosi came out to check out Mahalia, she sat inside the barrier to watch. While mum and dad were on stage Ruby was side of stage with Jimmy. She was singing into her own microphone while bopping along with “Da” Must be in the genes!! She leaned over and gave everyone a wave, very cute. Jimmy had her down by the gate back, after the show and she was blowing everyone kisses.
Vanessa Amorose followed Mahalia and once again put on a brilliant performance. She has so much energy, jumping around all over the stage in high heels as she sings and charging through the crowd. She really gets everyone involved.
Jimmy, Jackie, Danny, Dario, Lachy, Charlie, Mahalia, Ben and Elly were up next. Now we were ready to rock! A surprise start to the set - Jimmy opened up with a new song Can’t Do It Again. A great song to get us going. There was another five songs from Rage and Ruin played tonight, Before The Devil Knows Your Dead, God Or Money, Letter From A Dead Heart, Stupid Heart and Largs Pier Hotel. With the back drop of Largs Pier Hotel you can imagine yourself there back in its day with Chisel going wild - another night at the Largs Pier Hotel!! You can’t help but sway and sing along with it. Of course all the old crowd favourites were in there amongst them too, keeping everyone happy. After a bit of pushing and shoving Jimmy organised for a few wheelchairs and kids to come inside the barrier to watch from in there, out of harms way. There was one big fight that was pointed out by Dario. Was a bit vicious I hear, but I couldn’t see what was going on. Security soon sorted it out. Why people can not just enjoy the music I do not know. Anyway the rest of us were having a great time. Mahalia and Vanessa joined Jimmy in Piece Of My Heart, three powerful voices and I think them girls may have out screamed Jimmy, Not an easy thing to do! Great to have Goodbye finish off the night. It had been an awesome night at Werribee and to top it off Jimmy did a signing afterwards. He stayed there for ages signing things for everyone and finished off the night having a photo with the local firemen. A job well done Jimmy!
