Scene news: The Beards Add FNQ and Alice Springs Dates To The Strokin’ My Beard Tour

The Beards have just announced their Strokin’ My Beard Tour has been extended with extra dates including shows in Far North Queensland and Alice Springs.

2014 was a busy year for the world’s most relentless beard-themed band. They managed to record yet another album of songs about beards (The Beard Album); embark on their biggest Australian tour to date; receive a second ARIA nomination; and play to packed rooms throughout Europe on two separate international tours. Now, The Beards are back in their homeland and set to sternly reiterate their steadfast message on their upcoming “Strokin’ My Beard Tour”.

This exciting announcement coincides with the release of the band’s latest single, ‘Stroking My Beard’ – a track that showcases the catchy songwriting and irreverent sense of humour that the band has become famous for.

The tour will see the Adelaide-based four piece playing shows throughout Australia, with dates in all states and territories. Joining The Beards on the road will be Melbourne art-rock band The Stiffys, fresh from a breakout 2014 (all dates except Brisbane, Caboolture and Alice Springs).

Displaying seemingly limitless creativity and always keeping their live show fresh and entertaining whilst never deviating from their central, heavily beard-focused message, The Beards continue to amass an ever-growing global fanbase. The “Strokin’ My Beard Tour” will give Aussie fans the chance to see this highly-original and always-entertaining home grown talent in action.
