Red Hot Summer draws thousands

THOUSANDS of revelers rocked out to Australian music at the Red Hot Summer concert at Traralgon’s Victory Park on Sunday.

Headliner Jimmy Barnes, along with Dragon, Baby Animals, Chocolate Starfish and Ian Moss drew about 2800 people to the park, which was a great result for the afternoon concert.

Promoter Duane McDonald said the crowd was “well behaved” and “into it from the start” with excitement peaking when Jimmy Barnes performed.

“He really wound the crowd up,” Mr McDonald said.

“He (Barnes) said it was the best gig of the tour so far,” adding there had been about 15 other concerts as part of the tour


This was the second time Jimmy Barnes has visited Traralgon as part of Red Hot Summer, drawing a bigger crowd this time.

“The concert will definitely be back next year,” Mr McDonald said.
