In a statement provided to The Music, Peter Bauchop, COO of VenuesWest, the owner of HBF Stadium, said they look forward to hosting more events in Perth as restrictions ease further.

“Itโ€™s so exciting to see the live entertainment industry get back on its feet so quickly with this amazing event,” Bauchop said.

“This is just the first of many concerts that will be held at a VenuesWest venue in support of music in WA, giving the local economy a much-needed boost.โ€

Western Australia implemented stage four of its COVID-19 roadmap on Saturday (June 27). The fourth stage included the removal on gathering restrictions โ€“ provided a two square-metre rule is in place โ€“ and the green light for unseated performances at venues.

July 18, the date of WA Unlocked, is the tentative date the WA Government will introduce its fifth phase of easing restrictions. Stage five includes the “removal of all gathering restrictions, other COVID-related rules introduced by the State Government and the 50 per cent capacity limit for major venues”.

“Our phased approach has allowed us to get more Western Australians back to work and into more social and recreational activities, as together we continue to kick-start WAโ€™s economy,โ€ Premier Mark McGowan said in a statement.

โ€œItโ€™s because of the incredible effort of all Western Australians that weโ€™ve been able to reach each phase and continue to lead the states in relaxing restrictions.โ€
