NEWCASTLE’S V8 Supercars weekend has been given a pop injection with The Veronicas joining the stellar musical line-up.

Identical twins Lisa and Jessica Origliasso will perform on Friday November 24 on the Newcastle Foreshore alongside the already-announced Delta Goodrem. The following night’s entertainment is headlined by Australian pub rock kings Cold Chisel and Spiderbait.

The Veronicas have been one of Australia’s most successful pop exports since their 2005 debut album The Secret Life of…, which spawned the hits 4ever and Everything I’m Not.

Over the past decade the sisters have maintained a steady string of hits including Untouched, In My Blood and On Your Side.

The Veronicas have also become vocal advocates of same-sex marriage, with Jessica dating actor and model Ruby Rose.
