In exactly two weeks time, eleven years on from their glorious 2012 live return, Sunnyboys will commence The Last Dance; their final EVER tour. No animosity, no musical differences, just the satisfaction of a job well done and knowing that it’s time.
In the period since their return Sunnyboys arguably achieved as much if not more as their original life-span. They co-headlined a sold-out A Day On The Green, sold-out multiple nights at Sydney’s Enmore and Factory Theatres, Brisbane’s The Tivoli, Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, Melbourne’s The Forum, Corner and Croxton Hotels, Perth Festival plus Thirroul, Byron Bay, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast; re-released all three studio albums, released a live DVD and a live album, recorded and released four new tracks and sold countless t-shirts, beanies, caps, hoodies and badges and watched their eponymous debut reach double platinum sales. A remarkable achievement for a band still largely ignored by the mainstream.
But now it’s all coming to a close. No reason to be sad though, lets consider it a celebration of a fantastic career – or even better, a celebration of a fantastic band. Hip hip!
