The Waifs to tour Australia in 2011

Written by John Ritchie on January 3, 2011

The Waifs created their career in music on stages in every city and country town around Australia. To mark the release of their sixth studio album, ‘Temptation’, they will tour the nation to many of their favourite old haunts.

The Waifs have, through their various personal journeys, all ended up living in the USA. So what was once a regular addition to the music fans calendar in their homeland, has become a rare treat.

With six studio albums, two live albums, multiple ARIA Awards, countless festival appearances and over half a million albums sold locally, it will have been two years since they played to Australian fans, The Waifs will no doubt be a welcomed addition to the summer tour schedule in 2011.
