“Many acts make comebacks, more now than ever in fact, but I can’t remember feeling so much love in a room for an Australian band that, like it’s audience was reliving it’s glorious youth. It was a fantastic experience” – Iain Shedden / The Australian Newspaper Sydney Opera House Concert review June 2013
On April 22nd 2012, for the first time in 21 years, all four original members of Sydney band Sunnyboys, performed on-stage at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre. Appearing at the inaugural Dig It Up! Invitational the band played with the same intensity, verve and joy as they had all those years ago. It was emotional and inspired and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Fast forward to 2015 and the band have performed two sold-out tours of the country filling venues including the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, Melbourne’s Forum Theatre (multiple times), Perth’s International Arts Festival; they have co-headlined the Meredith Music Festival and set a venue record previously held by Noiseworks at the Coolangatta Hotel. Now its Geelong’s turn to experience the magic.
“There’s so much love and respect in the room its quite remarkable, and the four-piece return the favour with Love To Rule and the irrepressible Tunnel Of Love preceding the first true banger Happy Man, which prompts the euphoric crowd into a singalong frenzy from the very first note. The band seem genuinely touched by the positivity being willed at them by their ecstatic acolytes.” Steve Bell / The Music Brisbane Tivoli review 2014
Don’t miss Sunnyboys, live in Geelong. Sunnyboys are also appearing at A Day On The Green this March with fellow indie-rock veterans Hoodoo Gurus, Violent Femmes, Died Pretty and Ratcat.
