UPDATE: The Rock Show Oz Edition performance has been postponed until March 25.

JANUARY 5: The Rock Show Oz Edition is finally coming to the Panthers Penrith on Friday, January 7 after being postponed in 2021 due to COVID-19.

The Rock Show Oz Edition was the last in a long line of rock shows that the show's co-producer, Coralea Cameron, put together with her long-term partner, the late Aussie rock icon Jon English

"Sadly, Jon never got to actually perform this show. We had to cancel the upcoming tour when he passed away.

"It took me a long while to pick up the pieces, but I was determined to see it through in Jon's honour, and I couldn't be happier with how fantastically it's been received since we started touring this year," said Cameron.

Featuring Steve Mulry from the Ted Mulry Gang, along with band members from Jon's last rock show, Trilogy of Rock, Cameron says the show celebrates "an outstanding repertoire of classic Aussie rock from the '60s, '70s, and '80s."

Steve, the brother of Ted Mulry from hit 70's band the Ted Mulry Gang, who now fronts the reformed original band in his brother's place, said he was humbled when asked if he'd help carry on the show in Jon English's memory.

Masters Apprentices, Billy Thorpe, Bee Gees, Skyhooks, Aussie Crawl, INXS, and the Angels are just some of the iconic Aussie bands covered in the two-and-a-half-hour show, which Cameron said has only been slightly edited from the original version she and English had planned to tour.
