Sun Rising – The Birth Of Rock & Roll

Celebrating the songs and stories that pay tribute to the early music of Sun Records.

Since their first show a decade ago, Melbourne’s Sun Rising has become Australia’s premier rock and roll show, paying homage to the timeless music of Sun Records, selling out across the country, headlining rock and roll festivals and even receiving an endorsement from the son of Sun Records founder, Sam Phillips! Now, it’s your turn to witness this stunning show at The Joan.
