    Today just blew Sunrise out of the water with their New York line up!

    Alicia Keys
    Tony Bennett
    Kim Kardashian
    Donald Trump.

    Not sure if the 1st 3 are doing live converts but they looked like they could be from the promo?

    yes! is there a site or anyway to find out who will be playing up next/days for other shows and after this two weeks?

    like kerri-anne, today, morning show, do sporadic lives here and there, is there a place or site where you can find out when the next band/musician will be live?

    most of them dont say on their official sites.

    Anthony Callea is finally doing something after 4 years of being MIA? I look forward to this!

    @julian – Read my post again, …it was a little dig at the ‘dug up’ comment and not at Anthony . as I wrote I think he had one of the best voices in the country and I’m thrilled he will be on to sing ”Oh Oh Oh Oh”

    @ Craig H & Taz Sunrise didn’t “dig up” Anthony Callea.. he has a new single and new album!

    @Newtaste: Agree. As a proud Sydneysider it annoys me no end.

    Some really good talent there….and personally I’m thrilled they ”dug up” Anthony Callea, definitely one of the best voices in Australia.

    I wish they would stop calling Martin Place the ‘plaza’. It has never been called ‘Martin Plaza’ it has always been Martin Place.

    “Music” seems a stretch.

    They will feel Tuesday in with Jack Vidgen
