Dexys Midnight Runners will be doing two sideshows to go along with their appearance on the Harvest Festival 2012 lineup next month. It’s not often you get the chance to see a classic rock group reform and tour Australia, so this one almost promises to be one of the more special band tours you can see this year.
Dexys returned to the music world that they left almost three decades ago, not just with equal relevance but with all the style as well. They were known for their audacious and powerful live performances, spawning seven Top Twenty hits (including Geno and Come on Eileen) and albums Searching for the Young Soul Rebels, Too-Rye-Ay and Don’t Stand Me Down. 1986 saw the group disband before reforming again early this year out of nowhere, much to the delight of their fans.
This November, Dexys make their way to Australia for Harvest, as a very special event for those who’ve been waiting almost three decades, and for those lucky enough to discover them anew. Here are the dates:
Monday, 12th November
Astro Theatre, Perth – 18+
Thursday, 15th November
Enmore Theatre, Sydney – Lic a/A
Tickets on sale Friday, 12th October, 9am Local Times
