Two of Australians much loved stage and screen stars are coming to Dubbo to play all their classic hits.
Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde became household names in the mid-seventies when they were a part of the rock band OL'55.
Over the years they have both enjoyed incredibly diverse careers on stage and screen and are individually instantly recognisable to any Australian.
The Mailbox Shopper spoke to Frankie J ahead of the Dubbo performance and he said the show is very interactive.
"It's interactive with the audience and it's interactive with me and Wilbur in particular on stage. So there's a lot of laughs involved in the show," he explained.
"It's almost a cabaret but it still involves pumping rock and roll and great dance tunes."
Frankie J said because they've been around for a while and have been involved with a variety of things the audience are familiar with them.
"They get what they would expect, that is we;'re larrikins, but we're also very competent musicians. It's a real show and it's evolved over the 40 or so years that we've been working together."
The accomplished artist said everywhere they go people enjoy themselves because not only was the show entertaining, but "musically great."
"We encourage singing along and dancing. If people want to get dressed up that'll be fun too, if not it doesn't matter," he said.
"It's quite a broad musical show as well."

The reason why the music is so broad in the show is because the two artists perform songs from OL'55, Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons.
Frankie J and Wilbur's drummer Freddie Strauks, also used to perform with Skyhooks, so they also sing a few of their songs.
"We were products of the Countdown... so we do a couple of songs from bands in that eras. It's a very broad show. It's not just a show for people who only like 50s or 60s music," Frankie J explained.
Grandparents to grandchildren will enjoy the show, Frankie J said.
"People who are fans form ours either from Hey Hey It's Saturday or from numerous other things they should feel that they can come along because they'll all get a part of that as well," he said.

"I'm looking forward to getting out there and this (show) is a good opportunity for people to forget all of those worries for a couple of hours and have a laugh and sing along.
