Break out some vegemite sandwiches and turn up the AC/DC! Red Touch Media is proudly sponsoring 3 (sold out) nights of music and football down under with award-winning podcast and radio show, The Anfield Wrap (TAW). The events will take place in both Sydney and Melbourne, Australia and are being billed as The Anfield Wrap Down Under.
When Liverpool Football Club (LFC) added 2 Australian away games to their schedule, TAW jumped at the opportunity to take their show on the road and bring together all the diehard LFC fans traveling abroad to see their favorite team play.
“Ever since we announced the first Melbourne date we’ve been bombarded with requests to do more, and especially to visit Sydney,” said TAW co-founder Gareth Roberts. “We’re all buzzing about the trip and we can’t wait to do the [Australia] shows and meet loads of new people in two fantastic cities.”
On July 20, 21 and 23, The Anfield Wrap’s regular cast of commentators will take the stage for a live panel discussion of all things football. Special guests including Liverpool Football Club legend Craig Johnston [pictured left], Football Editor of The Times UK, Tony Evans [center] and Red Touch Media CEO, Wayne Scholes [right].
Immediately following each night’s panel will be musical performances by one or more of the following acts: Bonnie Johnston, Tony Le Bars, Silent Sleep, Tea Street Band and Alan Fletcher‘s band Waiting Room.
There’s no doubt it’s going to be a very exciting week in Australia!
