Thirsty Merc Announce New National Tour, Just In Time For Summer

Aussie rockers Thirsty Merc have announced a new national tour for 2018, which will take place in the summertime… baby in the summertime.

The tour actually begins in spring when the band headline the 20th anniversary edition of the Deni Ute Muster, but will run until New Year’s Eve, and will see the group return to the stage for their first tour since their huge ‘Take Me Back’ anniversary jaunt.

“We’re excited to be returning to the stage to help kick off summer, this time with a fantastic mix of Merc club shows, festival dates and double-headline gigs,” says frontman Rai Thistlethwayte.

“Please come along and help celebrate the best time of the year with us.”

The Merc are also scheduled to perform as part of the Red Hot Summer Tour in March and April 2019, because apparently summer never ends.

Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002, and independently released their latest album Shifting Gears back in 2015. They are best known for songs like ‘Someday, Someday’, ’20 Good Reasons’ and (of course) ‘In The Summertime’.
