The Newcastle Civic Theatre welcomed a full house last night as the Apia Good Times tour hit town. For the fourth year in a row the gig was a sell-out continuing to astound by drawing fans of all ages to the show.

Walking into The Gum Ball for the very first time I admit I was unsure what to expect. Rain poured and lightning threatened to end the Friday evening before it even began. Looking around I saw all walks of life from hippies to couples as straight as an arrow and even a mermaid yes you hear right. The common link between all parties was calm, peace and tranquility. I must say from the outset this is the perfect family festival, kids were everywhere and very welcome. There were plenty of activities to occupy them as well. From skateboard ramps to open puppet theatre this was a very clever addition.

It was a perfect night for the final a day on the green at Bimbadgen on Saturday. Warm afternoon culminating with a cool evening. At 7.00pm Chris Isaak dressed in his famous 15 kilogram blue mirrored suit took to the stage and shortly after owned it. The 59 year old was in fine form. “I hope I am in the right place dressed like this or I need to go ice skating”, The Californian crooner remains as charming as he is talented. Introducing the audience to an array of hits and covers during his almost 2 hour set.
