Due to overwhelming demand Sunnyboys are pleased to announce three new shows! Canberra will see the fab four make their first appearance in the nation’s capital since 1983. NSW south coast town Thirroul will receive its first ever taste of the Sunnyboys, and the iconic Tanks Arts Centre in Cairns has Sunnyboys making just their third ever North Queensland trip, only their second every visit to Cairns and just their first visit to the region since 1982! The three dates join the recently announced third Sydney date making it the most extensive Sunnyboys tour since their reemergence in 2012. All shows on-sale now via feelpresents.com
Having sold out their two shows at inner-west venue The Factory in just four days, Sunnyboys are pleased to announce a third and final Sydney show: Sunday 11th February The Factory, Marrickville. Special guests The Celibate Rifles (6.00pm – 9.30pm). Tickets on-sale now! The sold-out shows are the fastest selling Sydney shows since the band’s reunion in 2012. Not a bad effort huh? Elsewhere, the iconic band – borne of the eighties but with all-time appeal – set a first day sales record at Sunshine Coast venue The Shed @ Aussie World. It’s the band’s first performance on the coast since their reformation and just their third appearance in the region ever, their last visit being 1983 at the Aussie Hop, an all day festival featuring Skyhooks, Midnight Oil, The Church and others. Wonder never cease.
“I have never seen a snare punished like that before. Unrelenting drumming. It must have been hit between 8,000 and 23,000 times depending on how many sticks you’re counting. And White did not miss a beat.”
“Jim White’s relentless barrage of drums and Emmett Kelly’s unyielding, single-chord electric guitar strum unleashed fearsome waves of phantom harmonics.”
You won’t miss them next time …
No-one was more surprised than Ed Kuepper when The Aints Play The Saints (’73 – ’78) Sydney show at The Factory sold out so quickly. Demand certainly exceeded initial expectation and the outcry over social media demanded the band consider a 2nd show. So, here we are; Ed – and the rest of The Aints, Pete, Alister, Paul – are pleased to announce a second and final Sydney performance: Thursday 23rd November @ The Bald Faced Stag, in the inner-west suburb of Leichhardt.
