With memorial services and parades cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Australian music promoter Michael Gudinski and rocker Jimmy Barnes collaborated to create the concert called Music From The Home Front. It aims to pay tribute to Australian and New Zealand servicemen and women.

The artists will record their acts at home and they will be edited together to create the concert which will be broadcast nationally on the Nine Network from 7.30pm on Saturday. Nine is the publisher of this masthead.

“We really felt we wanted it to be home-to-home,” Gudinski, who came up with the idea last week, said.
