All the highlights from Closing Weekend of the Melbourne Zoo Twilights and Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ 2017 Summer Concert Series.

This past weekend saw the Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ and Melbourne Zoo Twilights Summer Concert Series come to a close for 2017 in a thrilling weekend of live music. In what was a stellar season, we celebrated 16 sold out shows across the series, and over seven weeks hosted performances from Australian legends such as Peter Garrett & The Alter Egos, local superstars The Rubens, Kasey Chambers and Paul Dempsey, special reunion shows from Jet, george and Killing Heidi, and world-renowned ABBA tribute band Björn Again to name a few.

The fiercely captivating Martha Wainwright made her debut at Melbourne Zoo Twilights and Twilight at Taronga for two remarkable shows on Friday and Saturday night respectively. With guitar-in-hand, the folk performer brought her honest, emotive songwriting and comedic storytelling to Melbourne and Taronga Zoo. New York’s stunning singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy opened the evening in Melbourne, while folk-pop duo Oh Pep! were on support duties in Sydney.

Scottish alt-rock veterans Teenage Fanclub graced the Taronga Zoo amphitheatre on Friday night, the five-piece performing hits from their breakthrough album Bandwagonesque through to new material from last year’s album Home, highlighting an incredible career spanning more than 25 years. British ska legends The Specials closed the curtain on Melbourne Zoo Twilights on Saturday night for an upbeat and lively evening of live music that had the entire audience up on their feet, celebrating an iconic band and almost 40 years of their music.
