On a rainy Thursday night a sold out crowd arrived at the Hordern Pavilion for the rescheduled Hoodoo Gurus 40th Anniversary Tour.

The Dandy Warhols hit the stage to keyboard and guitar drones. The lineup was keyboards (Zia McCabe; Brent DeBoer), 2 guitars (Courtney Taylor-Taylor & Peter Holmström) and drums (Brent DeBoer). The keyboard player played bass on one song. Their lighting was more atmospheric than dynamic, which suited the band’s indie style. The drummer contributed some excellent backing vocals. The warhols had their fair share of loyal fans in the audience.

The Gurus played songs from their first album up until their most recent album. It was a wide selection from their whole career. Lead singer Dave Faulkner was obviously thrilled with the crowd and finally being able to complete the tour. His partner in crime, Brad Shepherd, had a very tasteful selection of guitars. Shepherd took the lead on I Come from Your Future, proving that he could easily front the band if needed.

The sound and light show were spot on from the get go, and remained consistent throughout the night.

They came back for an encore of What My Scene, and Like Wow, Wipeout. Before that they played what Faulkner described as “our anthem” Be My Guru, the last track from their first album, Stoneage Romeos.

For their final encore they brought out the Danady Warhols and the Bouys to play their first ever single Leilani (again from Stoneage Romeos) with congas, multiple guitars and percussion. It was a jubilant end to the show and it left the crowd in high spirits.
