Tango In The Night On New Year’s Eve

Rumours? This ain’t no ‘Second Hand News’. Not someone’s ‘Dreams’. No, you’re hearing that magic, midnight music right: The Airlie Beach Hotel is bringing back one of its biggest shows in an epic New Year’s Eve extravaganza.

Australia’s premium Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks Tribute - which recreates the sound, look, and style of one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time - will bring in 2023 at The Pub in an epic two-and-a-half-hour non-stop event before transforming into their party cover band, Krush.

There might not be any snow-covered hills in Airlie Beach, but there’s bound to be a Landslide of Fleetwood Mac favourites thumping out from the Hotel when the crowd favourite ‘Dreams’ show will have audiences shouting, “Don’t Stop”.

Recapturing the seventies and eighties, bringing one of history’s most legendary bands – and its leading lady, Stevie Nicks – to Airlie Beach, this massive tribute show will stretch from 8.00pm to midnight.

Listen to the wind blow and watch the sun set as this well-oiled and talented group of musicians dedicate the night to the New Year, as well as the memory of Fleetwood Mac member Christine McVie.

Big guitar leads, all the iconic songs, and a perfect revival, Dreams brings the outfits, the moves, harmonies and grooves to the Bar-Top Stage at local’s favourite local, flanked by food and great drinks.

And if you needed any more convincing that this would be the way to bring the New Year in, listen to Dennis Dunstan, former Fleetwood Mac manager from 1981 to 1999: “The ‘Dreams’ Show was a breath of fresh air when it comes to Fleetwood Mac tribute shows. These guys deliver, big time!”

“I was thoroughly impressed from start to finish. Don’t miss this show if you’re a Mac fan!”

Fronted by ex-Las Vegas dancer and performer Nikki Canale, Dreams is host to the British-American band’s full gallery of anthems: Go Your Own way, Gypsy, Edge of Seventeen, Rooms on Fire, Say You Love Me, Everywhere, Sara, The Chain and many, many more.

After two and a half hours, Canale and her band mates will follow their performance up with a costume change, becoming the party cover band Krush from 11.00pm to see in the New Year.

Sisters of the Moon, beckon in the New Year at The Pub. There’s nothing quite like singing along to “Isn’t It Midnight” when the year comes to its close – especially in this exclusive, ticketed event.

At the end of the night, the Airlie Beach foreshore is right across from the Hotel, making it the best view for the annual fireworks display over the bay – you won’t even need to leave your seat.
