A crowd of around 25,000 people eagerly awaits John Farnham's appearance at the Riverstage in Brisbane for his 'Age of Reason' concert at World Expo '88. 

Hosts Jonathan 'Jono' Coleman and Ian 'Dano' Rogerson chat to members of the crowd to capture the mood before the concert.

Dano meets two of the stars of the TV soap Home and Away, Alex Papps and Nicolle Dickson, who are there to film scenes for the show. Later that year, John appeared as himself in two Home and Away episodes which included scenes with Papps and Dickson.

These vox pops have a certain charm and the clip overall is effective in capturing John's appeal at the time to a significantly wide demographic, in terms of age, gender and background.
