The Bobby Keys & The Suffering Bastards Australian Tour 2014 has been announced.
The legendary saxophonist Bobby Keys is headed to Australia this month and has announced a second and final Melbourne show after overwhelming box office demand. Along with his backing band, The Suffering Bastards, Keys will play Adelaide, two Sydney dates, and Brisbane on top of the dual Melbourne shows; the all star band plays two sets of hit after hit of all the songs you know and love from his recorded history.
The history of rock ‘n’ roll is littered with musical prodigies, charismatic storytellers, oblivion-seeking omnivores and odds-defying survivors whose contributions to the soundtracks of our lives have attained for them—or at least their work—a measure of immortality. Rarely, though, do all of these traits come together in the form of a single person, as they do in the case of legendary saxophone player Bobby Keys.
Touring since the age of 15, Texan Bobby Keys has played with them all. From Dion’s “The Wanderer”, to the solo records of three Beatles, Joe Cocker, The Who, Clapton, The Faces, Nillson and Lynyrd Skynyrd to name a star studded few.
He also toured with a lil’ musical outfit called the Rolling Stones since 1970, and it is in between shows with the Stones as they travel about the Southern Hemisphere this year that we get to witness Bobby and his band The Suffering Bastards stomping it out at six very special shows.
The Suffering Bastards features some of the best and most respected musicians in the world. Dan Baird (The Georgia Satellites) on Guitar and vocals; Chark Kinsolving (Spoonful) on Guitar, Michael Webb (John Fogerty, Poco) on Piano and Hammond Organ, Robert Kearns (Lynyrd Skynyrd) on Bass and Brad Pemberton (Ryan Adams and the Cardinals) on Drums. Put simply – a stellar line up of musical legends you’ll seldom see any place else.
Do not miss you chance to see Bobby Keys and The Suffering Bastards in full flight. This is the real deal.
