Masters Games Closing Ceremony Live Acts
Headline act for the Closing Ceremony of the 2018 Masters Games will be Thirsty Merc.
15 years ago, Thirsty Merc bounded onto the music scene with their summertime sounds, making their mark on radio and TV over the ensuing years. Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September 2003, before being signed to Warner Music. The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self-titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In the Summertime, the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006.
Two more studio albums followed, Slideshows in 2007 and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista. Fast forward to 2015 – Thirsty Merc released Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years and spent the next few months crossing the country; running up thousands of Frequent Flyer points and sold out shows.
With outstanding musical abilities and great songs, these guys will be sure to put on a great show!
