THE strongest indication yet the Kinross Woolshed hotel's doors will re-open soon has been confirmed with an Australia Day concert featuring Conrad Sewell locked in.
The Thurgoona pub's new owners are remaining tight-lipped on an opening date as they begin renovation works after the venue shut more than a year ago.
But the Kinross concert in late January features early on in Sewell's 21-date Australian regional tour which includes Dubbo the previous day.

The Kinross previousy had a reputation for attracting major performers including Jimmy Barnes, Vanessa Amorosi, Joe Cameliri, Diesel, Shannon Noll and The Whitlams.
Country music performers such as Adam Brand, Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey and James Blundell were also Kinross regulars.
The Kinross has a 3am liquor licence with capacity to host events for 5000-plus people.
The pub's freehold was offered for sale via an expressions of interest process in April this year.
