THE REVIVAL TOUR hits Australia ,plus extra shows added in SYDNEY AND MELBOURNE
Founded by Chuck Ragan, the singer / songwriter / guitarist and Hot Water Music co-frontman-- THE REVIVAL TOUR has arrived in Australia and has already added 2 New Dates - Saturday 24th April at Hermanns Bar in Sydney and Sunday 2nd May at The Arthouse in Melbourne!
Drawing from a diverse group of established musicians in indie Americana, rock, punk, Irish folk, THE REVIVAL TOUR will take the band of traveling musicians throughout Australia including Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart. In traditional revival fashion, once the music starts, this new guard of young, genre-defying, musicians keep it rolling, teaming in and out through each others’ sets until the final farewell of the night.
The Revival Australian Tour will include: Chuck Ragan (of Hot Water Music), Frank Turner, Tim Barry (of Avail) and Ben Nichols (of Lucero), with additional musicians Jon Gaunt and Todd Beene.
“As artists we go on tour together and then in the final days of the tour--after everyone is familiar with one another--you’re playing songs with your tour-mates and having a blast,” states founder Chuck Ragan. “I thought, why can’t we get together, rehearse before the tour starts and perform together during the entire tour?” Ragan says of his inspiration for THE REVIVAL TOUR. “Some of our set for that night’s show is chosen in advance, but everything else evolves organically onstage,” he elaborates. “It’s truly one of the most special tours I’ve ever been a part of.”
