Notes

During the Opening Ceremonies of this event, on March 15, 2006, The Church performed "Under The Milky Way" live at the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) with the Melbourne Chorale (now the MSO Chorus) & Gondwana Voices. There are only a few short shots of the band performing, as the cameras were more interested in the ballerinas and motorbikes on stage.
