After humble beginnings at the Sheraton Wentworth in Sydney when Elton John hosted the inaugural awards, the 25th ARIAS have a grand new home, Allphones Arena, to celebrate the best of Australian music in 2011 in a gala presentation exclusive to GO!
With a star-studded list of award presenters on hand including Good Charlotte rockers Joel and Benji Madden, pop princess Delta Goodrem, Hamish and Andy, Triple J’s Tom and Alex, Erin McNaught and Adam Hills, who will come out on top? Boy and Bear, Drapht and Gotye are all nominated for seven awards on the night.
In line with the 25-year anniversary, the Australian Record Industry Association will induct more outstanding performers into the ARIA Hall of Fame, including our famous musical exports Kylie Minogue and The Wiggles.
In a world television first, Gotye and Kimbra will perform their multi-platinum song Somebody That I Used To Know, Australia’s highest selling single of the last 15 years. Boy and Bear will perform for the first time on television, and Guy Sebastian will do a medley of his hits Who’s That Girl and Don’t Worry Be Happy. In addition, there will be performances by The Living End, Cut Copy and a very special performance by Gurrumul with Missy Higgins.
7.30pm Sunday November 27th on GO!
