Crowd worships Paul Kelly

Memorable show: Paul Kelly on stage at Leongatha Memorial Hall last night.

MUSIC legend Paul Kelly had the audience begging for more at his sell-out show in Leongatha last night.

Kelly, joined by singing sisters Vika and Linda Bull, returned to the stage after the 700 strong crowd stamped and clapped for the show to go on at Leongatha Memorial Hall.

The energy filled concert featured his greatest hits and songs spanning his career, from the iconic From Little Things Big Things Grow and To Her Door, to Dumb Things and When I First Met Your Ma.

The youthful group Wishful opened the concert, featuring an easy listening set of narrative tunes by Kelly’s daughters Memphis and Maddy Kelly and Samuel Humphrey.

Fans travelled from across South Gippsland and as far as Melbourne and Sale for the show, presented superbly and professionally by the volunteers of the Lyrebird Arts Council.

The concert was Kelly’s fourth show in South Gippsland: the first at memorial hall in 1979, at Meeniyan in 2006 and Mossvale Music Festival in 2009.
