ABSTRACT
The article reports on positive outlook for the music industry in Australia following the 18th Commonwealth Games held from March 15 to 16, 2006. A dozen Australian acts performed during the opening or closing ceremonies, each held before a sold-out 80,000-strong crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The free-to-air Nine Network claims the opening ceremony drew 3.8 million television viewers nationally, while the closing ceremony attracted 3 million. The lengthiest performance over the two ceremonial events came from EMI Music Australia alternative act the Cat Empire.
