Following a huge tour announcement last week as well as a Splendour in the Grass spot, seminal Aussie rockers, the church, are pleased to reveal they'll be adding a Tasmanian show to their run of seven (now eight) dates. The band will play at The Hellenic Hall on Thursday July 9.
Originally from the apple isle, the show will be Ian Haug's first appearance in his hometown with the church, and the former Powderfinger guitarist can't wait. "I am so excited to come and play to my fellow Tasmanians with my new band," he says.
The Further Deeper/The Blurred Crusade tour is selling fast with venues in the major capital cities set to reach capacity in the coming weeks.
The Church will play two sets for this once-in-a-lifetime concert tour - the first revisiting one of the band's most notable and loved albums The Blurred Crusade and the second a monster contemporary set of highlights from the future classic Further/Deeper album, plus a few other favourites.
The Blurred Crusade features some of the band's most defining songs including 'Almost With You' and 'Don't Look Back'.
Frontman Steve Kilbey explains the idea behind highlighting The Blurred Crusade again as part of this historical time in the band's life. "The Blurred Crusade was where the church turned into themselves. Lushly produced by Bob Clearmountain, this album is obviously one of our early highlights and still remarkably sounds fresh 33 years later."
Tickets for Further Deeper - The Blurred Crusade are on sale now (see below for details).
