This music documentary series, hosted and narrated by musician Mark Lizotte, aka ‘Diesel’, use a compelling mix of archival footage and new interviews to revisit some of Australia’s most seminal concerts and uncover the intriguing stories behind them. Each episode tells of an exceptional, unforgettable concert and what made it so special.
