Top-shelf entertainers booked in for shows

WHAT do Hilltop Hoods, Celtic Legends, Anh Do and Busby Marou all have in common?

They are heading to Gladstone to perform this month, boosting the city's already exciting entertainment scene.

The Harvey Road Tavern, Agnes Water Tavern and Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre will host the popular acts.

November is just as busy, with the Melbourne Cup, Pete Murray and the Chrysalides Musical on the list.

Hilltop Hoods will bring their three-piece hip-hop act to Marley Brown Oval on October 19.

Rapper MC Pressure said he couldn't wait.

"Regional shows are always crazy. You guys don't get as many bands and acts so it gets lapped up and it's a lot of fun, especially (going) to somewhere we've never been before, like Gladstone," he said.

ALH Group entertainment and marketing co-ordinator Elaina Berg said it took six months of negotiating to get the Hoods to visit Gladstone.

Busby Marou will visit Agnes Water on October 17, the second time the duo has visited the Gladstone region this year.

Celtic Legends will bring live traditional Irish dance, music and song, creating an electric atmosphere that has swept countless international audiences away to the heart of Ireland.

It's scheduled at the GECC on October 11.

James Reyne Plays Australian Crawl will take place on October 29 at the Harvey Road Tavern, while Anh Do's The Happiest Refugee is on October 24 at the GECC.
