Troy Cassar-Daley’s classic gig at Sydney’s Seymour Centre in 2010 will be the focus of tonight’s episode of Days Like These… With Diesel.

Airing at 8:30pm on ABC TV Plus and ABC iView, the episode will see Cassar-Daley and host Mark Lizotte unpack the “tour de force of personal hits” he unleashed during the show.

The performance would later be released as a live album, featuring tracks such as Trains, Big Big Love, They Don't Make 'Em Like That Anymore and Bird On A Wire, the latter of which features Jimmy Barnes.

Days Like These... With Diesel revisits “some of the most brilliant and unforgettable moments in Australian music history”.

Premiering earlier this year, Jet’s 2004 performance at The Forum kicked things off before Baby Animals, Hunters & Collectors, The Angels, Diesel, Rose Tattoo, Jimmy Barnes, Eurogliders, Archie Roach and Icehouse were featured.

Next week, the show’s finale will air, featuring Cold Chisel.

When the series was first announced, Lizotte said: “Days Like These…with Diesel has been an absolute delight and honour to host. The series brings together some of the most quintessential Australian bands from the past few decades that help define our nation’s recent music past, and celebrates important moments in their concert history."

The 12 episodes feature a mix of archival footage and interviews to revisit Australia's most iconic concerts and tell the stories behind them.

Lizotte chats to the people who were at these seminal shows, from band members, tour managers as well as musicians from other groups in attendance. He explores the reasons that these concerts were such memorable events, showcasing the unique circumstances that led to each of the shows.
