Olivia's Australian Legends Stamp now available
Ten legends of Australian music now have the honour of being immortalised on a postage stamp as the recipients of the 2013 Australia Post Legends award - among them Olivia Newton-John.
They have been recognised for their influence and impact on music in Australia, and for taking Australian music to the world’s stage. They are household names and their influence spans across several generations of music fans.
This year’s Australia Post Australian Legends are the iconic bands Cold Chisel, Men At Work, INXS, The Seekers and AC/DC; individual artists Olivia Newton-John AO, Kylie Minogue, John Farnham AOand Paul Kelly; and Ian “Molly” Meldrum.
Ahmed Fahour, Managing Director & CEO, Australia Post, is proud to continue the tradition of recognising successful Australians. “This year’s Australian Legends of Music have that rare blend of longevity, tenacity and devotion – as well as the capacity to inspire an entire nation. These stamps celebrate people who have not only entertained us with music, they have also made impressions on the lives of all Australians,” he said.
The 2013 Australia Post Australian Legends have been honoured at official Australia Day events staged in all capital cities in the lead up to the 26th of January. Each Legend will also be presented with a 24-carat gold replica of their stamp.
The Legends will feature on 10 x 60c stamps, a stamp pack, first day cover and set of maxi cards along with a commemorative book titled Australian Legends of Music written by renowned music historian Ed Nimmervol.
