Camp Cope
Live at Sydney Opera House

An iconic Australian band’s last hurrah
The influential Australian trio played their final show ever and drew legions of fans to the Concert Hall last October, revelling in their incredible achievements and bidding farewell to their fans in the best way they knew how, with one last epic performance.The ARIA-nominated trio got the rousing send off they deserve, as singer-guitarist Georgia McDonald, bassist Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich and drummer Sarah Thompson celebrated a career hard fought – and won – on their own terms. 

As McDonald once said, “Camp Cope is in defiance of everyone who’s tried to bring us down, and it’s like: Well, you can’t, because we have each other, and we’re a mountain together.”
