SENIORS can celebrate in Las Vegas style for free this March.
The 2015 Premier's Seniors Week Gala Concerts will be held at Qantas Credit Union Arena (formerly the Sydney Entertainment Centre) on March 17 and 18, with a 'Viva Las Vegas' theme.
Member for Goulburn Pru Goward said the Premier's Gala Concerts were held each year as a gift for the hard-working and well-deserving seniors of NSW.
"The concerts have a fine tradition of providing a fantastic show for seniors, with great music run by world-class Australian performers and lots of spectacle," she said.
"In 2015, they will channel the big Vegas show, from the years of Frank Sinatra, Elvis and the Rat Pack to today's showstoppers featuring artists such as Tom Jones, Celine Dion and Elton John."
The cast of this year's concerts will include three of Australia's leading stage performers - Kate Maree Hoolihan, star of We Will Rock You and Little Women, Michael Falzon, star of We Will Rock You, War of the Worlds, and Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Matt Lee, star of Mary Poppins and judge on television's So You Think You Can Dance.
The concerts are free for NSW residents aged 60 years or over, and people with a lifelong disability or Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years or over.
The concerts will be held on Tuesday, March 17 at 4.30pm and Wednesday, March 18 at 10.30am or 2.30pm. Tickets can be booked at www.ticketek.com.au/nswseniorsweek, in person at participating Ticketek outlets and Westfield Concierge desks or by phone on 1300 130 613 for the cost of a local call.
Seniors are encouraged to be patient if booking by phone due to the large volume of calls.
"I recommend booking tickets online if you have access to the internet and email," Ms Goward said.
"The system is quick and easy, with 65 per cent of concert patrons now obtaining their tickets online."
Tickets will be available through Ticketek from 10am on Thursday, January 22.
