On the back of a hugely successful twelve months, ICEHOUSE is excited to announce they will be once again taking to the Australian stages with a tour in 2012. Returning to the live scene in 2011, the band performed at music festivals across the country and kickstarted 2012 by performing with long time friends Hall & Oates, by the end of May having played to over 100,000 fans.
Now, due to the demand from fans around the country, ICEHOUSE are thrilled to announce their own tour, titled Primitive Colours, which focuses on songs from two of their most celebrated albums, Primitive Man and Man of Colours.
2012 is a significant year for the iconic Australian band with the 25th anniversary oftheir fifth album Man of Colours and the 30th anniversary of their second commended album Primitive Man. In celebration of these albums which will both be re-released in Anniversary Editions, ICEHOUSE’s show will consist of songs from both these albums as well as some familiar hits from the rest of the re-released ICEHOUSE catalogue.
“Getting the band back out touring last year turned out to be a lot of fun and excitement for us all. We’ve had varied requests to perform again and decided that in this double Anniversary year for two of the most known ICEHOUSE albums, the best way would be to perform a few more songs from both albums. Having done the festivals, wineries and entertainment centres since last October, we also wanted to have the chance to get closer to the audiences so we’re playing a variety of venues, ranging from Hamer Hall in Melbourne to a couple of nights in Dee Why (just around the corner from where the band played its early gigs as Flowers) and big pub venues in Brisbane – its just like the days when we toured Primitive Man!”
At the Enmore Theatre and Hamer Hall shows in Sydney and Melbourne respectively, diehard fans will have a chance to purchase tickets in the Obsession Zone, an area allocated within the seating plan of each theatre, allowing fans to get up close and personal with the band. Get in quick and make sure you don’t miss out on this tour by a band, which just keeps playing better and better.
