Sun 969 Rock N Rumble Concert

The Ultimate Festival of Wheels will be bringing one of Australia’s biggest rock names with it to headline Rock N Rumble in 2017.

Rock N Rumble will feature the nation’s biggest annual Street Parade followed by a night of nothing but Crawl, when Aussie music legend James Reyne takes his “James Reyne plays Australian Crawl” tour to Red CentreNATS 03.

The Australian Crawl front man, Reyne has sold more than two million albums and written some of the most memorable Australian rock anthems of all time including “Reckless”, “The Boy Light Up” and “Beautiful People”.

James Reyne has been an iconic artist in the Australian musical landscape for over 4 decades, and is as synonymous to Australian Crawl as Barnsey is to Cold Chisel.
