Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole, Darren Coggan and Felicity Urquhart formed The Young Stars of Country two decades ago.
Now fully fledged country stars in their own right, the performers are getting back together to celebrate the 20 year anniversary.
Adam told the Weekender how excited he was to be performing with the group again.
“Performing is an amazing feeling, the adrenaline and excitement that goes with it is amazing. Then add doing it with some of your best friends and it just multiples that experience and emotions,” he said.
“It’s crazy to think when we started 20 years ago, we were kids and now we have our own kids. Our hair may be greyer yet we are not any wiser but we are so excited to perform together again.”
The 2019 reunion tour promises the hits of the stars along with a whole heap of stories from the road.
“We do some of our own songs then duets plus the four of us sing together, so you get a great mix, then there are all the funny stories we have of touring over the years,” Adam said.
“We are really great friends and enjoy working together but we also love dishing the dirt and taking the Mickey out of each other on stage.”
The tour will be kicking off in Penrith, which Adam said is the perfect place to start.
“Western Sydney is the heart of country music, there are a lot of fans out there so it will be great to start there with a bang,” he said.
“We can’t wait to roll up and put on a great show, hopefully survive our opening night and we want everyone there with us.”
You can expect some very special moments during the show including laughs and, of course, quality country music. The four artists will come together after 20 years with love and respect for each other, which will be a once in a lifetime treat for the audience.
‘The Reunion’ will be on at the EVAN Theatre in Penrith on Thursday, November 14 at 8pm. Tickets are $54. To book, call 1300 PANTHERS.
