Australian music legend Russell Morris’ scheduled appearance on Sunday April 3 at the Botanic Gardens has been moved to the Moonee Beach Hotel due to concerns over wet weather.
Event promoter John Logan of John Logan Entertainment (JLE) said: “After rain last weekend and expected rain this weekend, we have decided that an indoor venue might be a better option.
“We didn’t want people sitting in the rain so we phoned and Moonee Beach Hotel management agreed to give us their Sunday afternoon.
“Hugh and Carl from the hotel were fantastic and moved their Sunday schedule to accommodate us,” he added.
The concert will go ahead as scheduled, with doors opening at 3 p.m., with Fiona Boyes opening act on stage just before 4 p.m.
The concert will end around 6 p.m.
The event is part of the Great Southern Nights program, with the entity also giving its approval to the venue change.
Russell Morris is an ARIA award-winning artist, inductee into the Australian Music Hall of Fame and has recently enjoyed a huge career resurgence with four blues-inspired albums.
