2 Opening Acts Announced for Fleetwood Mac at A Day On The Green - Nov 30th Geelong, Australia

Richard Clapton & Stonefield named as Special Guests for Fleetwood Mac The Hill Winery, Geelong - Saturday November 30th.

Promoter Roundhouse Entertainment is pleased to announce the special guest support artists for the sold out Fleetwood Mac concert at The Hill Winery Geelong.  

Much-loved singer songwriter Richard Clapton and the blues-influenced rock of Stonefield will provide the perfect accompaniment to the legendary Fleetwood Mac.   

All tickets to the Saturday November 30 concert are completely sold out but promoters are keen to ensure a great value-for-money day with the inclusion of special guests to the bill.    

Richard Clapton is a huge a day on the green crowd favourite. He has endeared himself to music-lovers everywhere through his heartfelt inspired performances and a songbook that defines our times.  With hits like ‘Girls On The Avenue’, ‘Deep Water’, ‘Capricorn Dancer’ and ‘I Am An Island’ Richard was a thoroughly deserving and popular inductee into the ARIA Hall Of Fame.  In late 2012 he released his first album in eight years “Harlequin Nights” to universal acclaim.   

Opening the show will be one of the next big things in Aussie music, Stonefield. The four Findlay sisters from a small farming town in North Victoria were raised on their parents’ vinyl collection of Zappa, Hendrix and Zeppelin. Since winning Triple J’s 2011 Unearthed High competition, they have been solidly building a fan base through performances at major festivals including Glastonbury in the UK, supporting the likes of Kaiser Chiefs and Foo Fighters and at their own shows.  After several successful releases, the girls have just finished recording their first album, a dynamic collection of blues-influenced rock, set for release on October 11.

Playing times are:  
4.30pm Gates Open  
5.30pm Stonefield
6.45pm Richard Clapton  
8.15pm Fleetwood Mac  

More than 14,000 fans will attend the concert making it arguably the biggest ever staged in the region. Due to the capacity crowd, promoters suggest patrons leave the car at home and travel by coach.  For coach and shuttle bus enquiries, contact Melbourne On The Move 1300 558 686 and locally McHarry’s Coaches on 03 5223 2111.
