Vika and Linda Bull are set to headline a live concert in Seymour this month.

A LIVE concert in Seymour on May 27 will feature Australian music legends Vika and Linda Bull play in support of flood relief for the region.

Victorian Minister for Creative Industries Steve Dimopoulos last week announced the duo would headline the Seymour event with plans for additional concerts in Echuca, Tallarook, Mooroopna, Euroa and Rochester.

There is also an event planned for Tallarook later this year.

The concerts are part of a $1 million State Government program to stage live music events in flood-affected communities.

Sisters Vika and Linda Bull are a vocal duo who came to prominence as backup singers in Australian rock band The Black Sorrows before branching out on their own in the 1990s.

They will take the stage at The Prince in Seymour with support from Wallan-based country rock singer-songwriter Kaitlyn Thomas.

Kaitlyn Thomas is set to support Vika and Linda Bull at the Seymour concert. ​

The Live Music for Flood Recovery Program kicked off last year with concerts in Shepparton, Kerang and Wangaratta, ranging from small gigs in pubs with local musicians to large-scale festivals, big headline acts and community events.

Member for Northern Victoria Jaclyn Symes said the concert would provide a boost to Seymour.

“In a tough year, this event means a lot to a community like Seymour. I can’t wait for Vika and Linda to hit the stage of The Prince, bringing the town to life, celebrating our resilience, and welcoming visitors from near and far for this special event,” she said.

Mr Dimopoulos said the concert would be a memorable one.

“Victorians are tough people and that’s why we want to deliver something special for communities that were affected by the floods to lift the spirits of locals and also deliver a boost to the economy,” he said.

“Over the coming months, music acts will take to local stages across Victoria. There will be memorable gigs for Victorians of all ages – plus plenty of reasons to take a road trip.”
