Twilight at Taronga presented by Mastercard presents
Vika and Linda- CANCELLED
TICKET HOLDERS WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY REFUNDED
It’s with a heavy heart that Taronga announces the cancellation of the 2022 Twilight at Taronga Concert Series.
This decision was not made lightly and takes into account both the safety of our concert guests, staff, artists, crew and broader community, as well as our ability to deliver an experience that meets the expectations of our guests who have purchased tickets.
We are extremely proud of the Twilight at Taronga experience which is renowned for its unique and energetic space. Regrettably, with the current public health measures in place and largely sold out shows that would see guests in close proximity and unable to socially distance, our event space does not comply with the current requirements for a COVID-safe event.
Taronga is a passionate and long-term supporter of the live music industry, with 2022 set to be Twilight at Taronga’s 26th year. As devastating as this is, the health and wellbeing of the whole community remains paramount.
We would like to thank all of the Twilight, and Taronga community, for their support and look forward to coming back with another unforgettable series when the circumstances allow.
Taronga is a not-for-profit organisation with a vision to secure a shared future for wildlife and people. Events like Twilight at Taronga not only provide revenue to support Taronga’s vital conservation work in Australia and around the world, but also connect guests with wildlife and the pressing challenges they face such as this year’s support of Taronga’s Litter Free Oceans campaign.
Although the series will not be going ahead this year, you can make a donation here. Any donation made today will allow Taronga to continue to support initiatives such as Litter Free Oceans, as well as continue to breed threatened species, carry on vital scientific research and deliver conservation programs here in Australia and across the globe.
Taronga Zoo remains open for day guests to visit, and to connect with and learn more about wildlife.
Loved by artists and fans alike, the stunning vocal harmonies from Vika & Linda will grace the Twilight at Taronga stage following the recent release of their new album ‘The Wait’.
‘The Wait’ debuted at #2 on the ARIA chart, delivering Vika & Linda their third top 5 album in just 15 months. It’s their first new original album in 19 years and has been met with universal acclaim.
The last couple of years has seen Vika & Linda add even more kudos to their three-decade legacy.
Following a 14-year period since their last album release (2006’s acoustic album ‘Between Two Shores’), Vika & Linda made a stunning return with the release of their anthology ‘‘Akilotoa’ in June 2020. The album debuted at #1 on the ARIA chart, marking their first ever #1 album and the first album by an Australian female duo to debut at #1.
Three months later, in September 2020, their gospel collection ‘Sunday (The Gospel According To Iso)’ debuted at #2.
Vika & Linda have sung on number one albums by Paul Kelly, Kasey Chambers and John Farnham, done gigs for the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and the King of Tonga, and been nominated for four ARIA Awards.
They were part of three classic albums during their six-year stint with The Black Sorrows including ‘Hold On To Me’ featuring the classic hit ‘Chained To The Wheel’ and two more multi-platinum albums ‘Harley and Rose’ and ‘Better Times’. They then branched out on their own with their double-platinum self-titled debut in 1994, which hit the Top 10 in Australia and was nominated for an ARIA Award.
