Hoodoo Gurus will hit stages right across Australia this December as they celebrate the 40th Anniversary since their first live show in 1981. The legendary Australian rockers have also announced the release of their new single World Of Pain, which is out today via Universal Music Australia. Iconic US indie-darlings The Dandy Warhols will join them as special guests for all dates, including their Perth show at Belvoir Amphitheatre on Saturday, December 11.
“We are thrilled to be going around Australia to play for our fans again,” Hoodoo Gurus said. “Even better, we are honoured to be accompanied by our admirable friends, The Dandy Warhols from the US. Between the two of us, there are gonna be plenty of opportunities for crowd singalongs, and after the turmoil of the last year and a half, that’s gonna be incredibly therapeutic for everyone. You can be certain that both of our bands will be fired up and rarin’ to go.”
Since their formation in 1981, Hoodoo Gurus boast nine ARIA Top 20 albums, nine ARIA Top 40 singles and a swag of multi-platinum albums. This year is of particular significance for the Sydney act, marking an impressive 40 years recording and touring, and this December, the release of their first album in over a decade.
Joining the Gurus for the anniversary tour are US indie band, The Dandy Warhols (pictured above). Hailing from the US and known worldwide for mega hits like Bohemian Like You and modern classics, We Used To Be Friends, the band recently celebrated their own 25th anniversary in 2019. From countless global tours, to playing to over 100,000 punters at the 2000 Glastonbury Festival and even taking to the stage during the Greek riots, the Warhols are no stranger to putting on a show.
Hoodoo Gurus and specials guests The Dandy Warhols play at Belvoir Amphitheatre on Saturday, December 11, 2021. Tickets are on sale Friday, May 28 from moshtix.com.au
