Local music superstars Budjerah and Busby Marou will perform at Metricon Stadium this Saturday afternoon when the SUNS take on Richmond at 4:35pm.
Fresh off a rousing performance from Aussie Rock icon Daryl Braithwaite in the build-up to Saturday’s narrow loss to Collingwood, the two Gold Coast-based music acts will entertain the crowd for a second straight weekend.
Busby Marou are set to take the stage pre-match while Budjerah will perform at half-time, make sure to arrive at 3.30pm to ensure you don't miss all the entertainment.
The Gold Coast SUNS will conduct a number of different initiatives this week to help celebrate NAIDOC week, Sunday 3rd July – Sunday 10th July, culminating in two must-watch performances on Saturday afternoon.
The two Indigenous acts will perform in a week which provides everyone with the opportunity to recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.
Budjerah, a young Coodjinburra man from the Bundjalung nation, is a new, homegrown R&B star who has risen to fame since 2020 when he was just 18 years of age.
Now 20, and with an ARIA Breakthrough Artist award from five nominations, the artist will perform off the back of a world tour including Vance Joy support slots in Europe and North America.
Budjerah has taken his talents to the world stage, most recently collaborating with Ed Sheeran on his hit single “2Step”, in May.
Following an exciting half of football from the Gold Coast SUNS, Busby Marou will bring the Hostplus Half-Time Show to life with a set in-front of a near full-house at Metricon Stadium.
Thomas Busby and Jeremy Marou make up the Queensland musical duo with Jeremy having strong Torres Strait Islander heritage.
Busby Marou have released five albums since hitting the big time in 2011, but it was their fourth studio album titled ‘Postcards from the Shell House’ which reached number one on the charts to solidify their position as one of Australia’s favourite musicians.
In 2020, when the AFL Grand Final was played at the Gabba for the first time in the competition’s history, the local duo showcased everything that Queensland has to offer with a stirring performance, and they’ll be looking to do that again on Saturday afternoon at Metricon Stadium.
