Having said that CSN are playing there in April (no, I am not going).

    I saw many big names there, Ray Stevens, Anne Murray, Olivia Newton-John, Sherbet (Aussie band) and in those days it was the "in" venue for national and international acts. I'd thought it was defunct until a few months ago when I saw that acts were still being signed up there. In 1976 I vaguely remember the Eagles were coming but had only arrived in Australia the year before and wasn't really up on all the international acts. Crosby, Stills and Nash are gonna be there?? Will they need Timothy this time?? (just joshing )

    If you are referring to my post it was on January 23 this year.

    As for the Hordern I saw Elton John & Faith No More there. I never saw Sherbet there because I was living in Newcastle all the times I saw them. When I eventually saw them in Sydney their status had fallen somewhat.

    Okay, I will get used to the dates on here, when things are quoted it's easy to miss.

    Well they would have been good shows, I saw Sherbet there in 1977, the live album recording..it was an awesome show!! So you must have seen them some time after that. I admit they did slide after they returned from the States. Why their name was changed to Highway though is beyond me, I wonder what would have happened differently, if anything, had they kept their original name?? Kind of like starting afresh and that didn't seem fair. Daryl Braithwaite still sounds fantastic these days by the way!

    I don't want to get too far off topic but I saw them at the New Year's Eve Opera House concert at the end of 1978. That was the first time I saw them in Sydney & after that it was at places like the old Tivoli nightclub in George St. All the times I saw them before that were at the Civic Theatre in Newcastle although I once saw them at the Belmont 16 Foot Sailing Club; this was definitely once their 'appeal had become more selective'.
