Amy Shark selected to feature on MTV Unplugged Melbourne

MTV Australia have just confirmed that Amy Shark will be the second artist selected to perform on the MTV Unplugged Melbourne TV concert series.

Presented by VodkaO and hosted by Ash LondonMTV Unplugged Melbourne is set to be the first of a series of special televised events which hope to show off Australia’s greatest talent on the world stage.

Gang Of Youths are kicking off the series, set to showcase their phenomenal talent in an intimate, stripped back setting.

While Crowded House were the first Australian band to perform for the series back in 1990, Midnight Oil followed soon after in 1993. However, the years that followed have seen no other Australians take to the legendary stage.

Amy Shark’s current single‘I Said Hi’, has reached platinum sales and garnered 15 million streams globally with 1.5 million video views. It’s off her debut album LOVE MONSTER, which drops July 13th. The record boasts a bunch of high-flying collaborators like Mark Hoppus, Jack Antonoff and Joel Little. Watch it below:

Peter Bingeman, CEO of Visit Victoria, added: “The MTV Unplugged partnership gives us the perfect platform to showcase Melbourne as Australia’s home of live music. We look forward to sharing more amazing talent from home and abroad with further shows to be announced in the coming months.”
