X-Factor star to hold free concert
Published on 29 October 2019
Locals will be able to catch X-Factor winner Isaiah Firebrace at an open-air concert in Sturt Park on Thursday.
The indigenous star was originally set to perform at the Civic Centre on Friday, but agreed to new arrangements this morning.
Council's Events Coordinator, Rachel Merton, said locals were set to benefit from Firebrace's busy travel schedule.
"We'd originally planned it to be a ticketed event at the Civic Centre, but Isaiah also has responsibilities in Melbourne for the Spring Carnival," she said.
"We got together with his management to try and work out a compromise that could take some pressure off his travel schedule, but still allow him to perform in the city.
"We came to the agreement to play a free concert for the community a day early. Isaiah now gets an extra day for travel, and locals get a free concert - it's a great outcome for everyone.
"We'd just like to thank Isaiah and his management and invite everyone to see an amazing live performance in the park on Thursday."
Locals will be able to catch Isaiah's performance on the Chloride Street side of the park at 5pm on October 31.
