Scene News: ‘A Fist Full of Rock’ tour extended to include cities along the south-east coast of Australia

A Fist Full Of Rock is pleased to announce their stellar 2017 line-up featuring Hoodoo Gurus, You Am I, Jebediah and Adalita, touring the country this August & September with shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

With tickets flying out the door for the Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I’s regional and Perth shows, it came to their attention that some folks weren’t happy.  “Why should Narrabri and Wagga Wagga have all the fun?”  they said “What about poor old Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide?”

Well OK then you ask for it and you get it!

Both bands will not only play those cities, but to sweeten the deal they’ve invited some mates to join in the fun.

2017’s edition of  A Fist Full Of Rock tour features a huge line-up and unites the Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I, fresh from a run of sell out shows around the country, with their old mates Jebediah and Adalita. 

Needing no introduction, The Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I have been sharing stages for the last 25 years from New York to Nambucca Heads, and boast nineteen acclaimed studio albums between them, most of which reached the upper echelons of the charts and went gold or platinum.

20 years on from the release of their blistering debut album, Jebediah bring their roaring riffs and soaring pop hooks to the line-up – promising us they still like to crank up the volume and rock! As does the final addition to the bill, solo artist, singer of seminal band Magic Dirt, and one of Australia’s most respected and influential artists for nearly two decades, Indie Rock Icon Adalita.

So, you get the combined rock and roll might of the Hoodoo Gurus and You Am I plus the energy and hooks of the Jebs, and the super-soul-power of Adalita.

Happy now, city folk?
