Jack Ladder Announces National Tour Including Two Orchestral Shows

Jack Ladder & the Dreamlanders will hit the road this autumn in support of their 2021 release, Hijack! The tour kicks off in Melbourne in late April, followed by shows in Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra as well as Eltham and Castlemaine.

Hijack!, Ladder’s sixth album, came out in September 2021 through Endless Recordings. The album was recorded by Simon Berckleman (Philadelphia Grand Jury) at Sydney’s Golden Retriever studios and mixed by Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Spiderbait).

The record features Ladder’s regular backing band, the Dreamlanders, comprising guitarist Kirin J Callinan, bass player Donny Benet, drummer Laurence Pike and keyboardist Neal Sutherland. Ladder and Pike (of PVT and Szun Waves) co-produced Hijack!, while Sam Lipman supplied string orchestrations.

The latter will be replicated at two special shows – at the Melbourne Recital Centre and Sydney’s City Recital Hall – that’ll see Ladder and the Dreamlanders playing alongside a section of strings. Tickets on sale Thursday, 3rd February. Find the complete list of tour dates below.
