Fresh off their Grand Final performance, Hunters and Collectors are looking ahead to their first tour since 1998, including a run of dates as part of A Day on the Green and theatre shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
The Day on the Green tour kicks off Saturday, January 25 in Geelong and will include concerts in the Hunter Valley, Launceston, Perth and McLaren Vale in South Australia. Playing alongside Hunters & Collectors will be Something For Kate, You Am I, British India and Diesel. Support at the theatre shows will come from The Panics.
The announcement marks a big few weeks for Hunters & Collectors, who have been named as support for Bruce Springsteen’s shows in Melbourne and are the focus of a new tribute album. Released last Friday, Crucible – The Songs of Hunters & Collectors features 15 covers from an impressive list of acts. It includes an Avalanches remix of ‘Talking to a Stranger’, The Rubens doing ‘Holy Grail’, Something for Kate’s take on ‘When the River Runs Dry’ and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder and Crowded House’s Neil Finn teaming up for ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’.
Tickets for all shows on sale at 9am Friday, October 11.
