Pseudo Echo will bring to a close the 14th Australian Masters Games in Geelong this October as they headline an evening of celebration and achievement at the official closing ceremony.
In the final hoorah, lead singer and guitarist Brian Canham and band members Ben Grayson, Darren Danielson and Simon Rayner will send off Games participants in grand style in the exclusive closing ceremony held at the Avalon Airport Games Village.
Featuring smash hits such as ‘Listening’, ‘A Beat for You, and ‘Living in a Dream’, the quartet is sure to have all of the 8000 plus participants a buzz before they leave Geelong.
Adding to the ambiance and in honour of the bands biggest hit which saw them top the Australian charts for 12 weeks and soar to the USA and UK Top 10’s, the closing ceremony theme and dress code will be ‘Funky Town’.
And as the unofficial anthem of the 1980s, the ‘Funky Town’ theme is sure to produce big hair, bigger hooks and an unforgettable night of entertainment and a packed dance floor.
The closing ceremony will signify the official close of the 14th edition of the Australian Masters Games and each of the 54 sports.
Pseudo Echo join Mental as Anything and James Reyne, who will play at the opening ceremony, as headline acts for an entertainment filled week at the Australian Masters Games with a further announcement to come for the major mid-week party.
Games Director Ian Fitzpatrick says Pseudo Echo is a great addition to the Australian Masters Games entertainment lineup.
“We are absolutely thrilled to have Pseudo Echo join Mental as Anything and James Reyne as the headline acts for our entertainment program,” Mr Fitzpatrick said.
“Whilst it is sport and camaraderie that brings our 8,000 plus participants together, the entertainment program is an important element of the overall participant experience and helps separate the Games from the week in, week out masters competition.
“Australian Masters Games ceremonies have always attracted some great costumes, but we think the ‘Funky Town’ theme will see them take on a whole new level and set the scene for the best send off from the Games possible.”
The Australian Masters Games is a mass participation sporting event for anyone over the age of 30, attracting over 8,000 participants in 54 sports, with its 14th edition being held in Geelong from the 5th to 12th October 2013.
