:: Countdown Spectacular

The Countdown Spectacular was more than five years in the making, courtesy of Michael Gudinski and a large team of people who set about reigniting the television show that was part of the Sunday night viewing diet.

With a terrific line-up of Australian hitmakers of the late 70s and early 80s, producers managed to pack thirteen years of Countdown history into an amazing three-and-a-half hour live show.

It went very well as this DVD shows, from the Humdrum of Ian “Molly” Meldrum to the performers who reformed, including Sherbet, Hush, Mondo Rock others. The show played to tens of thousands across the country.

Now, fans can relive those good times with this entertaining 2-DVD set that features the entire uncut concert spectacular!
