To celebrate the seventh year of Good Times, seven of the all-time favourite Australian music All Stars will be heading to Bunbury later this month.

The show will be held at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Thursday, May 16, with performances from Vika & Linda Bull, Brian Cadd, Joe Camilleri, Kate Ceberano, Russell Morris, Ross Wilson and John Paul Young.

Young is undoubtedly one of the most popular Australian artists of the 70s, with a string of hits, and more than four million record sales to his name, cementing his place in Australia's music history.

In the early 70s when John was a sheet metalworker by day and singer by night, he was approached to record Pasadena, before joining the cast of Jesus Christ Superstar playing the role of Annas until 1974.

Then everything went just a little crazy and "JPY" was all over the airwaves with Yesterday's Hero, The Love Game, I Hate the Music, Keep On Smilin', I Wanna Do It With You, Where the Action Is, Standing In The Rain and, of course, Love Is In The Air.

With this success, Young became a Countdown regular as both guest presenter, co-host and performer and his music became the soundtrack to the countdown generation, launching a career spanning more than 40 years.

In 2009, Young was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame and in 2012, his 40th year in the industry, John was honoured with an Order of Australia for his services to charity and the music industry.

"I can't wait to be honest," he said.

"It's going to be a lot of fun, it's a great cast.

"It'll be a good smatter of all the hits that have come out of all of us over the years.

"The thing I'm most looking forward to is singing in part some of the other peoples hits - it's a great thrill to be up there and be able to sing a little bit of A Little Ray of Sunshine or Eagle Rock - it's a lovely thing."
