You know your popularity is through the roof when you’re selling out shows without even announcing them and that’s exactly what Stinky Fingers have done – twice.
Yesterday, a homecoming Sydney show for the band at Enmore Theatre sneakily went on-sale without any official word from the band and somehow fans have already got a hold of it and snatched up every last ticket.
The October show will come after a few months of charming the pants off North America and will also celebrate Ghost Town, a forthcoming single from the band which is a cover of The Specials’ 1981 tune.
The single will also double as a statement from the band, in an attempt to draw attention to the cultural climate in Australia and in particular Sydney’s live music scene.
In January this year, the boys sold-out a national tour without any official word from the band, proving that their fans are aplenty and also all very nifty detectives.
Those who missed out on this latest show have now had to resort to taking to the Facebook event to beg for tickets, presumably because they don’t spend their time refreshing a Ticketek search for Stinky Fingers in the hope that a tour will magically appear.
Sticky Fingers will embark on the final leg of their overseas tour in Canada next month before returning home for this latest show plus a few festival appearances. They’ll play This That in Newcastle at the end of October, Peregian Originals Festival in Queensland in November and then head to New Zealand for Rhythm and Vines over New Years.
