A couple of hours north of Sydney, nestled in the lush green expanse of the Hunter Valley, sits Hope Estate Winery, the serene and picturesque location for the NSW leg of Culture Club‘s Encore Tour. Featuring a lineup that seems to have come straight from the posters on my teenage bedroom wall, the concert featured support from five of Australia’s most iconic bands from the 80’s.

The band was chosen by the legendary rock outfit themselves to open their massive concerts at Hanging Rock and Hope Estate in November. They are understandably chuffed at the prospect:
