HOODOO GURUS AND COLD CHISEL TOGETHER AT LAST!

We’re playing as part of the first-ever concert to be held at BANKWEST STADIUM, Parramatta on FRIDAY 24 JANUARY.
The concert begins with BUSBY MAROU, followed by BIRDS OF TOKYO, then we’ll be playing a short set prior to COLD CHISEL hitting the stage to conclude the night (it’s really their show, we’re just their guests).

We’ve played with Jimmy Barnes and Ian Moss separately before but this will be the first time the Gurus and Chisel have been on the same bill. What took us both so long?

One night only!

FREE ALL-AGES CONCERT ON NEW YEAR’S EVE

We’re excited to be playing an alcohol-free, family-friendly concert on Tuesday to help bring in the new year. The event is being held on the foreshore at Rockingham, W.A.  and the weather is forecast to be perfect. There’ll be a heap of entertainment and food options for everyone and we promise not to swear over the P.A.

Entertainment starts at 5pM and there are two fireworks displays, one at 9PM for the little ones and the “proper” one at midnight for everyone else. The full schedule can be found here and the official Rockingham City Council website about the event is linked here.

U.S. TOUR ANNOUNCED FOR OCT./NOV., 2020

We are finally coming back to tour the U.S. at the end of next year. About time, I hear you say. The whole tour is being presented by Little Steven’s Underground Garage, the hippest radio station in the world. Amongst many others, the Underground Garage features Count Zaremba’s Crypt, a spooktacular show presented by The Fleshtones’ own, Peter Zaremba, from midnight (ET) every Saturday.

I know many people are going to be disappointed that their city (or country) will miss out on a Gurus gig this time – and that includes some of our favourite places to play (hello, Atlanta and New Orleans!). We will be coming back again asap with a new album and a much more extensive tour next time. This is just the first step in a much more active touring schedule for the band over the next few years, with visits to many other cities, countries and planets being in our long term touring schedule. For reasons that are too boring to get into, we have to limit this particular U.S. tour to three weeks, and though we’ve squeezed as many gigs as we can into that time, we are barely scratching the surface. We’ll come back again soon, we promise.

Here are the dates for the end of next year, with ticket links for most venues (I’ll add the other links later):
