About The Event

Ross 'The Boss' Wilson has fronted chart-toppers Daddy Cool and Mondo Rock, written smash hits such as Come Said The Boy, Cool World and A Touch of Paradise. This year marks the milestone 50th anniversary of Australia's national anthem 'Eagle Rock'! Join Ross Wilson in celebrating the history of one of Australia's most beloved bands 'Daddy Cool' as he returns to the legendary Bridgeway Hotel for the first time in over 30 years! As a solo artist Ross has twice been inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. With no less than 26 ARIA Top 40 hits to his credit as a singer, songwriter and producer, Ross is an absolute Australian rock legend, having entertained Australia for over half a century. Ross and his full band 'The Peaceniks' perform all his original hits on this exceptional one night only Adelaide show. Tickets are limited to accomodate extra seating, so be quick. Don't miss out on this special event! We'll see you there "Doin' The Eagle Rock!"

50 years ago, Daddy Cool’s first single EAGLE ROCK topped the charts for months on end and became a genuine cultural phenomenon. The debut album DADDY WHO? went on to break every sales record in the book, with a combined 17 weeks at Number 1.

To celebrate fifty years of Eagle Rock topping the charts, Mr Eagle Rock himself, Ross Wilson, is set to undertake a national tour that will celebrate the band and the song upon which his long and successful career as a singer/songwriter/musician - as well as so much of Australia's rock'n'roll legacy - was built.

Ross Wilson's “EAGLE ROCK – 50th ANNIVERSARY TOUR” will take in all states, and will feature an expanded line-up of his band (including young guitarist Aaron Schembri, who was mentored as a teen by Ross Hannaford) and an expanded DC-related repertoire.
