I love to listen to music when on the road as I spend large amounts of time behind the wheel for my role as an Area General Manager at Telstra.

Although for me, there’s nothing quite liking watching an artist perform LIVE and feeling the vibe with friends and family.

Coming from Armidale, we don’t get a lot of gigs. In fact the last live performance I saw was Bon Jovi at Sydney Olympic Park.

So when I found out that Telstra Thanks is hosting a series of FREE pop-up gigs in regional areas across Australia, and that Armidale is kicking it off today, at 5.30pm, I was pretty excited.

In Telstra’s recent regional tour with Jess Mauboy, our customers told us how much they loved seeing a live Aussie act in their own home town.

I hope you also will really enjoy the line up of acts we have coming your way.

Starting with Dami Im (Winner of the X Factor 2013), and then a heap of ARIA chart toppers, X Factor finalists, and Aussie favourites such as Taylor Henderson (pictured), Justice Crew, and Jai Waetford, these performances are sure to entertain!

”TaylorIt’s great that Telstra Thanks cares about giving regional customers access to some big names in Aussie music, and these gigs are a perfect example.

Telstra will also be giving our customers the chance to win VIP experiences with the artists during their pop up performances, just to say thanks.

A free pop-up gig at a local venue is an offer I can’t resist, and I hope you also get the chance to take your friends and family, and enjoy the vibe of a live performance from an Aussie star!

Who is your favourite Aussie artist? We’d love to hear from you.
