The Australia Day Live concert was a joy to behold.
Great talent on stage, on country, on water and in the air. Great production bringing in all those feeds – sure some were pre-recorded but they still had to blend with the live mix.
And dancing – yes dancing! Despite the current NSW mandate that music festivals (unless you are Hillsong) are not to allow dancing.
Surely it is now time for Premier Perrottet to admit that dancing may not be the super spreader monster he has made it out to be.
Currently the Sydney Opera House COVID rules for inside events are in line with all theatre venues, galleries and museums in Sydney and require all staff and visitors to be double vaccinated. However this requirement does not apply to outdoor events at the SOH. And as the NSW Government abolished the requirement to be vaccinated to attend events back in December, one assumes that as this event was presented by the NSW Government that unvaccinated patrons were allowed in – and to dance!
Time for the double standards to cease and allow music festivals to get back on the calendar.
And if you didn’t watch the concert you probably didn’t get the headline. The feature act was Delta Goodrem. The stream is available on YouTube
