Free seniors week concert tickets

1 February 2013



Free tickets to the Premier's Seniors Week Gala Concerts on 18 March will become available for NSW seniors from 9.00am on Tuesday 5 February 2013.

The theme for this year's concerts is 'Live From Studio A - A Celebration of Australian Music'. Two concerts will be held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on Monday 18 March. One concert for seniors' groups on Tuesday 19 March is already fully booked.

Up to 30,000 free tickets are available for NSW seniors, with a limit of four tickets per person. Attendees must be NSW residents aged 60 years of age or older.

Minister for Ageing, Andrew Constance, said the concerts were extremely popular and it was anticipated that all tickets would be allocated before lunchtime on Tuesday.

Mr Constance also encouraged seniors to book online, noting that 60 per cent did so for the last Premier's Gala Concerts in March.

"I recommend that anyone who wants tickets to the concerts to book online, if they have access to an internet connection and email," Mr Constance said.

"Tickets can also be booked in person at participating NSW Ticketmaster outlets or by phoning 1300 855 501 for the cost of a local call, however lengthy delays may be expected."

Seniors wishing to book online can register a free account with Ticketmaster in advance, or can update their existing account, to ensure their contact information is correct. This will assist in ensuring people can book quickly and easily at www.ticketmaster.com.au from 9.00am on Tuesday 5 February.

"Seniors Week is an opportunity for the NSW Government to engage seniors and involve them in a range of community activities," Mr Constance said.

"The Premier's Gala Concerts are just one way of doing this, as well as providing us a chance to thank and acknowledge seniors for their ongoing contributions to family, workplaces and the community."

Past performers at the concerts have included Jean Kittson, Todd McKenney, Denise Scott, Rhonda Burchmore, Doug Parkinson, Tamsin Carroll and Damian Leith.
