A FREE concert at Elder Park, a barbecue at Prospect’s St Helens Park and Cricket at Adelaide Oval there’s plenty to choose from this Australia Day.
About 20,000 people are expected to fill Elder Park next Tuesday, January 26, for the 7pm bash headlined by pop singer Vanessa Amorosi and jazz sensations James Morrison and Carl Riseley.
The concert will be followed by fireworks at 10pm.
The events tops off the Australia Day Parade, which starts at 6pm in Hindmarsh Square.
The parade includes floats, marching bands and performers Silvi Milans (pictured from left), Roberto Ribeiro and Gugu Buck from the Brazilian Association of SA.
Prospect Council has organised a picnic-style event at St Helen’s Park, Prospect Rd, from 10am.
Families are encouraged to attend the citizenship ceremony and community awards, followed by a barbecue and traditional Australian music by local group Diddychwy.

A mix of music, sport and fireworks will draw crowds of more than 20,000 to the city to celebrate Australia Day (January 26).
Elder Park will be the focus of the free Australia Day Concert from 7pm, with entertainment by pop singer Vanessa Amorosi and top jazz drawcards James Morrison and Carl Riseley.
Multicultural performers are also involved in the celebrations, including members of the Brazilian Association of SA (pictured) who are taking part in the City Council’s annual street parade.
Roving performers, floats and marching bands will parade through Hindmarsh Square from 6pm before turning onto Pulteney St, North Tce then to Elder Park.
The festivities finish at 10pm with a fireworks show.
Cricket fans can also see Australia take on Pakistan in the One Day International at Adelaide Oval from 1.55pm.
Australia Day Council executive officer Matthew Miles said the Elder Park concert, hosted by the City Council, would be one of the best.
“The news of Carl Riseley and James Morrison performing will bring thousands of people to the city to celebrate what is a truly special day,” he said.
Sections of Pulteney St, North Tce and King William Rd will be closed during the parade.

Flying doctor to celebrate 82 years
18 Apr, 2010 04:00 AM
The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia will turn 82 on Saturday, May 15, and will celebrate the day with a "Wings for Life" Gala Ball at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre.
Heading the long list of entertainment for the night will be Australian Idol finalist Carl Riseley and amazing female vocalist Liz Tobias, who will both perform with the backing of the 18-piece Bob Johnson Big Band.

"It's not very often that you get the opportunity to celebrate your birthday on Saturday, so we thought why not turn our annual Adelaide ball into one great big party," said General Manager of Marketing & Public Relations for RFDS Central Operations, Charlie Paterson.

RFDS Ambassador Kelly Nestor will MC the night and SA beers and wines donated by Coopers and Jacob's Creek will help wash down a three-course meal.

Tickets are now on sale.

Re: South Australia Gigs

Post by Guest on Sun 16 May 2010, 10:16 am

Here is Jodie and Amanda's combined AdelaideAirportNetCafe review of the RFDS Ball last night.

The day began early for both of us, with our flight leaving Sydney at the bright, early time of 6.30am. The flight was uneventful apart from the ladyboy, who we're still a LITTLE confused about.

We checked into our hotel, had a nap, and decided a trip to Rundle Mall was on the cards. We were cruising through the mall, when who should Jodie spot, bar Ryan, casually walking next to Mr Riseley. We stopped and said hi, and had a quick chat about where they staying (The rich b*tch hotel), and about how excited Carl seemed for the show, and to play with a big band. Carl's phone rang, with a blocked number, Jodie told him it was her calling...he believed her....til he answered the call, and found out it was his health club hahah! We said goodbye, and continued our trip through the mall. We visited Augusta the pig, who Amanda was VERY disappointed to discover was not a REAL pig, but a statue of a pig....(why would there be pigs in Rundle Mall? - Jodie). We carried on to Target for some "Essentials" shopping...(IE; hollywood tape and chicken fillets!) before making a pit stop at the convience store for some Snack foods...and lunch.

Amanda went to visit her relatives, Jodie slept some more, before getting ready for the RFDS Wings For Life Birthday Ball. Getting ready involved a LOT of fussing over Jodie's hair, a last minute dress change by Amanda, and LOTS of complaints about walking in high heels.

We caught a taxi to the venue and realised that we were in fact, VERY early (Amanda never changed her phone from NSW time!!!!!) But, we stuck around, and admired the roof of the Entertainment centre, and Jodie attempted to climb the giant star out the front - minus her shoes, and in a dress.

Eventually doors opened and we were let into the Auditorium, we were seated in the second row of tables, on the far right, with a perfect view of the stage, as well as of certain people walking past our tables (If you catch my drift...). Dinner was uneventful and not very tasty, but, with free wine, beer and softdrink, we weren't complaining. We decided we'd do the right thing, and contribute $20 to the lucky dip thing, and both won bottles of wine, which we left on our table...for the drunks surrounding us. As we were walking to do this, who should we bump into but Mr Riseley, once again, who apparently was looking for us, after reading Jodie's tweets about where we were, and to come dance. (Jodie's big mistake number 1). He decided he was going to buy a lucky tip do, and he disappeared, and came back with Ryan in toe. Ryan was wearing "half a suit", and his wedding shoes, which were, sneakers. We decided to head back to the table and enjoy the big band who were playing with a lady named Liz Tobias.

Later on, when Amanda was filling out raffle tickets, we noticed Carl was dancing on the dance floor with a young lady, then began dancing on his own, much like one would expect to see in the middle of a mosh pit. So, Jodie grew some balls, and went up, and asked the handsome young man to dance.
And what a dance it was. Have you ever seen Peter Garrett dance? Thats about the only thing we can liken it too, just with a bit more coordination, and a lot less baldness. Jodie was a bit worried, as when she was actually dancing with Carl, and he spun her, her dress may have flown up. (Jodies big mistake number 2. NEVER WEAR A DRESS).

Some Cougar approached both of us and two other girls we were dancing with, commenting that there was a "fine young gentleman" we could dance with rather than ourselves, but before we could bring him into our little circle, an even older lady, commented to Carl that we did not know how to dance to this music, because its "old" music. So what does Amanda do? She steals this ladys older, distinguished husband, and dances with him, including, twirls, and spins, but no dips!! She also danced with this old lady, and I think showed her that she DOES indeed know how to dance to this music. Amanda; 1 Old lady; 0.

We went back to our table and were hassled by the other people sitting with us. They were under the impression we were "stalkers" and were constantly asking inappropriate questions about Carl's personal life, hotel rooms, and whether we sit outside his house. Apart from this, the people on our table were lovely, except I was a little worried the girl in the white dress, was going to flash part of her body to us, her dress was that revealing.

Carl came through the crowd, and had everybody up dancing by the end of the first song. We have the set list, we'll take photos of it for you later. It was so refreshing to see Carl so relaxed, and having such an obviously good time on stage. He played 2 sets, finishing around midnight, when they started ushering everybody out of the room. We had been told by Ryan previously to stick around because Carl had something he wanted to tell us. So we did. We told about 5 security guards that Ryan and Carl had told us to stay, and they were starting to get VERY shirty when we were the last people in the room, apart from the staff (May I add, there was a VERY attractive waiter, who happened to be cleaning up broken glass at our table...maybe I should have gotten his number...Jodie). Ryan and Carl came back out and we explained that we were about to be booted, but the problem was, we were actually sharing a taxi with them back to the hotels (Which were about 200m apart), and couldn't leave til they did. So, Ryan and Carl took us back to his dressing room to wait for the taxi to arrive, and so Mr Riseley could spend about 15 minutes getting his stuff together (He is worse than a woman!!!) Amanda stole his dressing room sign, and we left.

The taxi ride was perhaps the funniest thing that has happened to us in a while. We were subjected to Carl's stories about $34.50 "Dorras" and about the ladyboys in Redfern at some Thai restaurant. Ryan assured us that Carl may not be drunk, but simply delirious, and also referred to him as the Cadbury Kid (Glass and a half and you're gone!). The taxi driver, who had already been asked if he knew any ladyboys, sushed Carl, but all it did was turn him a little bit more serious, asking Jodie if she was eating vegetables (oops...).

So, we arrived at Carl's hotel, and Carl was too busy talking to this poor taxi driver, so it was left to Jodie and Ryan to unload the boot (Full of CARL'S stuff might I add...) and move everything inside, helped by everybody bar the person who actually owned the stuff. Carl FINALLY emerged from the taxi, and started a conversation with two elderly couples who were waiting to get in our cab. He was telling them how great the band was tonight, but they were completely oblivious to who he was, so it was just really amusing for us.

We moved into the lobby and sat down at some tables (Last time Jodie was in this particular hotel, she wasn't allowed into her friends room...so she is well acquainted with these tables!!), Ryan decided it was past him bed time, so he disappeared off to his room leaving us with Carl, after giving Carl a stern reminder NOT to cause any mischief. Needless to say, we decided these warnings didn't cover us, but probably should have.

He told us what he needed to tell us, and then we were just having a bit of a chat about what had been happening. He yet again enquired as to whether Amanda was engaged, to which she smartly responded "It's not likely to happen, unless you propose to me". To which, he just stared, a little lost. We showed him the video on Jodie's phone that someone has put on youtube using the video of Carl performing the Last Post, but dubbed with a REALLY bad version somebody else has done. He found this absolutly hilarious, and watched it twice...then watched himself actually performing the last post. (Lucky Jodie has 1gb internet data per month on her phone!!).

About 45 minutes after we arrived, Carl decided it was his bed time, so we quickly got photos, and autographs etc etc and left back for our hotel. We arrived back at about 2.20am, and decided it was the latest we'd stayed out after ANY Carl gig so far, and by far the funniest gig we've attended.

We got back to the hotel room, laughed at some of Carl's stories, and the nights events, before retiring to bed, rising early to head to the airport to write this review. Morning consisted of, again retelling the stories, and recounting them to Jodie's mother, who the humour was lost on, guess you had to be there, but we're both laughing as we type this now...

So now, I think we'll end this here, if you read it all you're a champ - it's a bit of an essay. Photos to come once we get home!!
