With a career spanning over 30 years, ICEHOUSE has delighted millions with their music, loved by audiences across generations.

In 2006, ICEHOUSE was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame, being described as “…one of the most successful Australian bands of the 80s and 90s.…With an uncompromising approach to music production they created songs that ranged from pure pop escapism to edgy, lavish synthesized pieces.”

The inaugural Telethon Concert is delighted to welcome ICEHOUSE as the headline act for 2019.
