Besides being one of the top entertainment venues in all of Australia, the Crown Hotel is also one of the country’s most famous tourist destinations. The Crown Resorts are known worldwide and continues to impress visitors from around the globe. Why? It attracts some of the best entertainment acts. The complex offers a whole range of venues for shows and exhibitions.

One of the most famous soul singers and an all-Australian favorite, Doug Parkinson will be honoring the legacy of Van Morrison. Expect the legend to perform all of the classics like “Brown Eyed Girl”, “Bright Side of the Road”, “Moondance” and many, many more. The show is scheduled for 21st February and the musician’s eight-piece band is due to provide appropriate musical accompaniment for the entire show. Needless to say, the performance will be a treat for anyone who enjoys Van Morrison, Doug Parkinson and soul music in general!
A few months down the line, Australia’s beloved music icon will be celebrating his 50 years in the industry. The show will offer a sort of a “rewind”: a subjective look at Williamson’s iconic career as a musician while celebrating his 75th birthday. With a career that stretches for over five decades, he has undoubtedly managed to win the hearts of many. John Williamson is responsible for creating a lot of country’s unofficial anthems. Put it this way, it impossible to imagine Australia’s pop culture without him! The musician has announced that 2020 will be his last year on tour. This is a hint that this might be one of the last big performances Williamson decides to share with the world. If you are a die-hard fan of Australian music, then you should definitely not miss the opportunity to see the Aussie legend. When? See Williamson in perform live at the Palms at Crown on either 28th-29th February.
