Paul Kelly - Making Gravy at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne | Sidney Myer Music Bowl | Saturday, 16. December 2017


Paul Kelly will be ushering in Christmas at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday 16 December with Making Gravy!

In 1996, Paul was asked to contribute a song to a charity record, ‘The Spirit Of Christmas’. When he was told that the song he had chosen was already taken, he decided to write his own. An unlikely Australian Christmas classic was born – ‘How To Make Gravy’ - it’s over five minutes long, has no chorus, and is set in jail.Over the last 21 years the song has grown to become a true Christmas anthem.

Adding sweetness and that extra tang to the Making Gravy line-up will be special guests Gang Of Youths, Meg Mac and Gretta Ray.

  • After successfully wrapping up the Australian leg of his Life Is Fine tour, Frontier Touring are pleased to announce that Paul Kelly’s special Making Gravy show at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl has officially sold out with 12,000 fans in for a night to remember. If the rave reviews that have flooded in from Kelly’s mammoth #1 album tour are anything to go by, those lucky enough to have secured a ticket to this special Christmas event are in for a treat - ‘Anthem after anthem was sprinkled into the set, including the track that Kelly wrote with Kev Carmody, ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’, arguably Australia's greatest Christmas song ‘How To Make Gravy’ and of course 'the hit' ‘To Her Door’.’ – The Music ‘Paul Kelly’s performance at the Sydney Opera House forecourt was a masterclass in musicianship.’ – news.com.au ‘His voice was as rich as ever for the entire two-hour set, backed by a strong musical ensemble… That breadth of musicianship gave each song its own deep and complex sound as the musicians swapped effortlessly between vocals and instruments.’ – The Sydney Morning Herald On the evening we will be teaming up with Sacred Heart Mission to raise money to help support their quest in combating homelessness in Melbourne at the toughest time of year. There will be a limited edition event t-shirt available for sale with all proceeds going to Sacred Heart. Artists, venue and sellers have all waived their fees. Sacred Heart Mission will also have collection points at the venue.
