Just as Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Agatha Christie’s Mousetrap both started their lives as websites before going on to become stage shows, Presentation Night is going LIVE. On July 10th, we are adding to our triple A-rated emotional investment portfolio by taking the leap from (computer) screen to treading the boards. It’s going to be bloody good.
The concept of Presentation Night live on stage is simple. An A-grade footballing identity who loves music is joined on stage by a top class musician who loves football. In front of an audience and under the warm glow of the spotlight, they’ll come together to discuss their mutual love of music and footy in ways that are philosophical, funny and surprising. Their conversation will be guided by a top class host well versed in both capers. Football and music act as the starting points for a discussion about our great obsessions – love, life, how to win the flag and great albums.
We’re very excited about our first live show. We’re throwing up in the sheds before the game to be honest.
For our first foray into show-business, we’re dealing only in quality cuts. Our footballer is one of the classiest and most admired in the modern game. Our musician is a genuine Australian music legend. Our host is a razor- sharp musical and sporting broadcaster (and tragic). Needless to say, they are all top men to boot.
It all starts on Wednesday July 10th at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne, that fantastic live music institution just a stones’ throw from the MCG. It couldn’t be any other way.
Over the course of the next ten days we will reveal our three main players, ticketing details and dress code (okay, not dress code).
If you’re on our mailing list (just up above and to your right) we’ll drop you a line early with an opportunity to pick up tickets ahead of the public on-sale because, clearly, you’re worth it.
