Despite COVID setback, Hope Rocks line-up remains the same


Those music fans who were keen to see seven Aussie rock legends on stage at Hope Estate this year will have to wait… just a little bit longer.

Due to the latest COVID-19 outbreak in NSW, and uncertainty surrounding the re-opening of state-wide lockdowns, the eagerly-anticipated event – originally scheduled for 16 October – is now marked on the calendar for Saturday 5 February.

“We regret to advise people of the decision but we had no choice in the current climate,” a spokesperson said.

“The organisers sincerely thank everyone for their understanding.”

Hope Rocks – presented by Hope Estate, Triple M Newcastle and Triple M Central Coast – will feature the likes of James Reyne, Baby Animals, Rose Tattoo, Choirboys, Models, Boom Crash Opera and Nick Barker and the Reptiles.

Over the past few decades, they’ve delivered some of the biggest hits in Australian music history, including The Boys Light Up, Downhearted, Reckless, One More River, Fall of Rome, Hammerhead, Early Warning, One Word, Painless, Suddenly, We Can’t Be Beaten, Bad Boy For Love, Run To Paradise, Boys Will Be Boys, Empire, Struggle Town, Out of Mind Out of Sight, Barbados, I Hear Motion, Big On Love, Let’s Kiss, Onion Skin, Great Wall, Hands Up in the Air, Dancing in the Storm, Get Out of the House, Her Charity, and Make Me Smile (Come Up and See Me).

And, despite the slight setback, all seven artists will perform at the 2022 concert.

Ticketholders are encouraged to hold onto their receipts as all existing tickets are automatically valid for the rescheduled date.
