Imagine having platinum winning, soul singer-songwriter GUY SEBASTIAN show up out of nowhere to give you a surprise and impromptu memorable gig? That would be pretty special wouldn’t you say? Well that’s just what happened today when Channel [V] hit Christmas shoppers with an acoustic performance for a [V] GUERILLA GIG at Sydney’s Queen Victoria Building!
GUY SEBASTIAN, who usually performs to sell-out crowds, today brought retailers to a standstill with a surprise and more importantly, free performance for passers-by [and a bunch of savvy Channel [V] fans]. That’s what [V] GUERILLA GIGS are about. They’re live performances when [and where] you least expect it.
In the shelter of Sydney’s QVB retail outlet, GUY SEBASTIAN emerged out of nowhere and put on a killer acoustic performance that was nothing short of awesome. With 26 platinum and three gold accreditations under his belt, Guy performed a set of four songs to the crowd of 250 people which included award winning tunes Who’s That Girl, Like It Like That, plus his new hit Don’t Worry Be Happy… finishing it off with Elevator Love as an encore!
So far Channel [V] has brought you a stack of [V] GUERILLA GIGS with the likes of Good Charlotte in Adelaide, The Ting Tings and Ed Sheeran in Sydney, John Butler Trio in Bundaberg, Faker in Launceston and even Plan B in Paris, plus loads more. We’ve toured the country [and beyond] with the cream of the crop of Australian artists and some massive international acts to surprise you with these random, impromptu and unforgettable gigs.
And why do we do them? Channel [V] is all about bringing music to the people and we want to create memorable music experiences – and for those lucky punters who happen to be in the right place at the right time for these gigs, it’s a musical memory money can’t buy.
Keep your eyes peeled kids as more [V] GUERILLA GIGS are in store over the next couple of months. For clues on which city will be hit next, head to www.vmusic.com.au and follow Channel [V] on Facebook. It’s as easy as that.
[V] GUERILLA GIG. Any artist, anywhere, anytime. Who’s next?
