Audiences from Darwin to Geraldton are raving about the success of The Reef program. From the power of Mick Sowry and Jon Frank’s film, the virtuosity of Richard Tognetti, the passion of ACO2, the soul of Steve Pigram and Mark Frank to the raw energy of Clay McDonald – The Reef has given northern and regional Western Australia an experience to remember for a lifetime. Over 1500 people packed Cable Beach Amphitheatre in Broome alone for the magic of The Reef outdoors under the stars.
The Reef Tour so far: 9 days, 5 concerts, world premiere of rich and powerful program, adventures to Warmun, Kooljaman, Red Bluff…. Getting cold as it heads south but the program’s heating up! Perth and Sydney shows sold out!
The World Premiere of The Reef goes out tonight ( Thurs 5 July) at the Darwin Entertainment Centre. Performers and production crew have been flying into Darwin all week for the historic event which simultaneously commences the Reef Tour across Northern and Western Australia.
Unbelievably so but its just 2 weeks before the Reef Tour commences with the World Premiere in Darwin on the 5th July at Darwin Entertainment Centre. Check out the itinerary now to ensure you will be at the right place at the right time so as not to miss this historic, epic tour and program.
