ARIA award-winning, multiplatinum-selling duo The Veronicas are set to shake the roof off Etihad Stadium when they rock the Melbourne Renegades during the blockbuster Big Bash League derby against the Melbourne Stars at Etihad Stadium on January 9.
Following sold out performance across the U.S.A., Europe and Asia, The Veronicas – Australia’s premiere live act and the hitmakers behind ‘You Ruin Me’, ‘Untouched’ and ‘4ever’ – will return to support the Melbourne Renegades against the Melbourne Stars.
Since storming to fame in 2005, The Veronicas have enjoyed global success, selling over 3 million albums and singles, releasing five multi-platinum albums and a run of #1 singles including ‘You Ruin Me’ and ‘Hook Me Up’.
Sisters Jessica and Lisa Origliasso said they were looking forward to entertaining a capacity crowd at Etihad Stadium.
“We can't wait to bring our music to the Melbourne Renegades and their supporters this summer. Etihad Stadium will go off and we're excited to perform live in front of a packed house,” Jess said.
“We couldn't say no to the opportunity for us to perform in front of so many cricket fans in Melbourne and help support the Renegades. We’re looking forward to meeting the boys in red and we’ll be cheering them on to get the job done,” Lisa said.
Melbourne Renegades CEO Stuart Coventry said the club was committed to delivering the best match entertainment experience in the KFC Big Bash League.
“The Veronicas are arguably one of the biggest bands to come out of Australia in the last 10 years. They represent the pinnacle of Australian music and set a high standard for our Live@The Derby Concept. We’re thrilled to be able to bring the Veronicas and their brand of rock-pop to Etihad Stadium during the Derby in front of a full house,” Coventry said.
“It’s high-energy, action-packed sports meets chart-topping, live entertainment; all in one affordable ticket. This is summer’s best value entertainment so get your tickets now to avoid disappointment. We know The Veronicas will be very popular with the families and kids and together with the international star-power of Chris Gayle hitting our rivals for six, we’re set for a huge night of entertainment in January.”
The Veronicas will perform during the Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars derby at Etihad Stadium on January 9.
