Hurley Going Strong After 40 Years

Who: Jade Hurley
Where: Belmont 16ft Sailing Club
When: Saturday April 9, 2005

AUSTRALIAN rock'n'roll icon Jade Hurley is still going strong after launching his career more than 40 years ago. Hurley was just starting out when legendary Australian rocker Johnny O'Keefe was introduced to Australian television audiences on the program Six O'Clock Rock. Hurley will return to Newcastle next month to perform at Belmont 16ft Sailing Club on Saturday, April 9.

He will take his audience through the history of popular music as he performs hits from the '50s through to the '90s.

Often dubbed Australia's `King of Country Rock', Hurley has made many appearances on television from his days on Bandstand to regular appearances on Good Morning Australia.

Hurley has also achieved success overseas and appeared on New Zealand's That's Country and Nashville country program Nashville Now.

As well known for his flamboyant costumes as he is for his music, Hurley has enjoyed a successful recording career, with every album earning him gold, platinum or double platinum status in Australia and New Zealand.

Tickets to the show cost $16.50 and are on sale at the club now.
