Bodyjar have kicked off their final lap of the nation on their ‘End is now’ tour in fitting style with a couple of cracker sell-out shows in regional Victoria.
Latest word from tour organisers is getting repetitive … SYDNEY’s ANNANDALE SHOW … SOLD OUT ! … the recently announced SECOND MELBOURNE SHOW… SOLD OUT !
Now the Adelaide show at Fowlers Live is also poised to hit capacity, if not already sold out by the time this goes to print.
Luckily for Adelaideans the JAR are happy to announce one extra show though. So SA slackers listen up … THURS DECEMBER 3: ENIGMA BAR w/ The Hot Lies & Ricochet Pete is just about your last chance to behold the mighty JAR live. OKAY !?
Anyway, long-time former Bodyjar drummer Ross Heatherington obviously knows a good thing when he sees it and has agreed to extend his guest appearances to include the entire tour, not just the Sydney & Melbourne shows as originally planned. So if anyone has any scores to settle or debts to call in with Ross then you’ll know where to find him. Truth is though he’s a top bloke so you might just wanna buy him a beer instead.
Right, this is really it then … the final tour is underway with sell-out shows coming thick and fast and a decade long chapter of Aussie punk rock inevitably coming to an end.
Front man Cam admits, “It’s hard to imagine not doing this anymore… but hey this is just what we wanted I guess. A final tour and a chance to say thanks for the support. I’ve seen too many great bands drift into oblivion never to be heard from again. We just didn’t want that for The Jar.”
And just to re-cap for those who are clinically dead or just plain dopey, BODYJAR defined Australian melodic punk in the 90’s & Naughties. They played & slayed in venues all over the planet and have consistently written some brilliant and crunching tunes throughout their reign… ‘One in a Million’, ‘Lights Out’, ‘Not the Same’, ‘Glossy Books’, ‘Fall to the Ground’ etc etc etc… (A visit to you-tube to check out their ripper film clips is well worthwhile).
So there you have it … your last chance to witness the genuine article and hear the band before they cross over into legend … THE END IS NOW !
