‘With Crowded House recently reunited and playing live in NZ it was a pleasure to be able to perform for Music From The Home Front again, this time all in the same room. We remember those who went before, who first summoned the ANZAC spirit, as it moves to a new level with free travel once more between our shores, hopeful signs … We also remember the originator of this gathering, the late, great Michael Gudinski’ – Neil Finn
‘It is an honour to be part of this great television event once again. Brilliantly conceived last year by our long-time friend Michael Gudinski, Music From The Home Front is both a powerful statement of respect for the courage and sacrifice of our war dead and a celebration of Australian songs in the Anzac tradition’ – Mark Seymour
‘In true Michael Gudinski, “Don’t wait for the dust to settle, strike a chord that will change the world” kinda attitude, he busted outta the COVID claustrophobia with Music From The Home Front last year and put Australian music right back, front and centre.! It was exciting to be on the first wave and now catching the next set! So grateful for his vision and support’ – Kate Ceberano

This year the message has added poignancy and Support Act is delighted to once again be the beneficiary of proceeds, which will support our efforts to provide crisis relief and mental health and wellbeing support for music workers who are doing it tough.”
