Aussie rock legends Hoodoo Gurus are heading out on tour this December in celebration of the 40th anniversary since their first live show back in 1981. Not only that, but they’ve also got a new single out today via Universal Music Australia titled ‘World Of Pain’.
Their national tour will hit major cities around the country over five nights, and as an added bonus, US indie-rockers The Dandy Warhols are set to come along on the tour too.
“We are thrilled to be going around Australia to play for our fans again,” the band said in the official press release. “Even better, we are honoured to be accompanied by our admirable friends, The Dandy Warhols from the US.
“Between the two of us, there are gonna be plenty of opportunities for crowd singalongs, and after the turmoil of the last year and a half, that’s gonna be incredibly therapeutic for everyone.
“You can be certain that both of our bands will be fired up and rarin’ to go.”
The tour will kick off on Wednesday, 1st December in Brisbane, before heading off to Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and closing out in Perth on Saturday, 11th December.
In 40 years, the band have amassed nine ARIA Top 20 albums, 9 ARIA Top 40 singles and a bunch of multi-platinum albums. Hoodoo Gurus are planning on releasing their first record in a decade this December, so fans at their live shows are in for a real treat.
Frontier Members can cop pre-sale tickets from 2PM AEST on Wednesday, 26th May before tickets go on sale to the public from 2PM AEST on Friday, 28th May.
