Isa Rodeo Limited Chief Executive Officer Natalie Flecker today announced Guy Sebastian
was unable to travel to Mount Isa and would be replaced by Sheppard on the entertainment

“Unfortunately we haven’t been successful in organising the required travel exemptions for
Guy and his crew. The health and safety of fans and all involved is the primary objective at
all times,” said Ms Flecker. “With just two days to go, we have had to make the difficult
decision to adjust the line-up and go with favourite Queensland entertainers Sheppard.

“Sheppard are absolutely thrilled to be returning to Mount Isa and are determined to make
sure everyone has a fantastic time. They are really excited to step in and know how
passionate the Mount Isa community is about their rodeo and entertainment.

“We tried very hard, but at just two days out we have had to make a call in the interest of
delivering all aspects of our festival including our Rodeo Rock concerts. The good news is, we
have secured Guy Sebastian as our headline act for our 2022 Mount Isa Mines Rodeo, so
fans can lock in 11th – 14th August, 2022.

“The remainder of our entertainment line-up is unchanged, with Casey Barnes supporting
Sheppard on Friday night and Australian country legend Lee Kernaghan appearing Saturday
night with Mick Lindsay.”

The RODEO ROCK Concerts are included in rodeo passes.

Ms Flecker said she wanted to reassure rodeo fans that preparations were being finalised for
the 62nd Mount Isa Mines Rodeo which gets underway this Thursday.

“This year’s event will be delivered under a managed Covid Safe Event Plan that has been
approved by Queensland Health and the State Government,” she said.

Tickets are still on sale and accommodation is available, including the Mount Isa Mines
onsite Tent City.
