Meanwhile, it's the day of Evan Slater's (Cameron Daddo) LIVE gig at Salt.
Will it be alright on the night for the sake of Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich), who is emotional at the thought of seeing his terminally-ill musician dad possibly play for the last time?
With preparations underway, Ryder's aunt, Roo Stewart (Georgie Parker) is alarmed when she finds Evan having a coughing fit at the Caravan Park.
