unnamed-1Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ and Melbourne Zoo Twilights are thrilled to announce a further two shows across the series have sold out, with the huge double headline show featuring indie superstars Ball Park Music and The Jungle Giants selling out in Sydney and Melbourne.

Ahead of their highly anticipated reunion performances in Sydney, Jet have announced local supports to accompany their grand return to the live stage. Indie-rockers Wild Honey join Jet for their sold out show on February 16, and garage-punk trio Bloods will open their second show on February 19, in what are sure to be two spectacular evenings of Australian rock music overlooking Sydney Harbour.

Homegrown heroes Hoodoo Gurus and iconic English ska-band The Specials are performing exclusively at Melbourne Zoo Twilights for two memorable evenings in the unique setting of Melbourne Zoo, and tickets to both shows are selling fast. Across both cities, second shows have been added for The Rubens and The Living End ‘Twangin’ at Twilight’, with tickets to all shows on sale now.

The ultimate destination for music lovers each year, Melbourne Zoo Twilights and Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ will see audiences soak up the splendour of summer, as the sun sets over the inner-city gem Melbourne Zoo and harbour-fronted Taronga Zoo. The 2017 series boasts a diverse array of Australian talent, from the legendary Peter Garrett & The Alter Egos and Kev Carmody, through to influential groups such Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons and The Sportsgeorge and Killing Heidi in a string of special reunion shows. Renowned internationals joining both Zoo lineups include hazy-rock star Kurt Vile, indie-pop duo Tegan and Sara and singer-songwriter Martha Wainwright. Dream-pop quartet Warpaint, along with celebrated Australian rocker Paul Dempsey are taking to the stage at Melbourne Zoo Twilights only, whilst the likes of country songstress Kasey Chambers, king of jazz James Morrison Big Band and Scottish alt-rockers Teenage Fanclub are performing solely at Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ.

All proceeds from the Twilight at Taronga presented by ANZ and Melbourne Zoo Twilights summer concert series go towards their respective conservation work. In 2017, Taronga Zoo will champion the first global community action tool, Wildlife Witness to help in the fight against illegal wildlife trade. Zoos Victoria have been fighting the extinction of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, playing a key role in the recovery of the species, increasing community awareness and building programs to reintroduce it to the wild.
