The mighty Hunters & Collectors today announced their first tour since 1998 performing ten A Day On The Green concerts nationally, followed by two special indoor concerts at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and Melbourne’s Palais Theatre.
Mark Seymour is very excited about rejoining former band mates Jack Howard, Michael Waters, Jeremy Smith, Doug Falconer, Barry Palmer and John Archer in this long-awaited reformation tour.
“The reputation of the band – its iconic status, so to speak – was built up over constant touring, just this relentless approach to getting out there and playing for years and years and years,” said Seymour.
“It was very much about being in a pub and having thousands of people jammed into a room, with this big, incredible sound. There was unity, there was pride and a total lack of bulls**t.”
The tour news comes amidst a hub of recent H&C activity – their performance at the AFL Grand Final on Saturday, playing at Melbourne’s two Bruce Springsteen concerts in February, and most importantly, the release of Crucible – The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors, the tribute album featuring The Living End, Birds Of Tokyo, Neil Finn & Eddie Vedder and Paul Kelly accompanied by 15 original H&C recordings.
