So. The Howler shows went so very very well that the band are keen to play some more shows.
Where better to start than the island continent’s most iconic building?
On Sunday 25 January – Australia Day Eve – Augie March will play the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall.
Edmondo, Kiernan, Adam, Glenn and Dave plus long-time brass alumni The Arnold Horns will play a one-night-only concert featuring songs from throughout their 18-year career.
It is particularly fitting that they do so on Australia Day Eve – with the Havens Dumb cover art featuring a wonky Australia, and some of the lyrical content about the wide brown land and how she is faring, especially the album’s cornerstone track, Definitive History.
Should be pretty great!
Tickets are $59 +bf and available from 9am Friday 28 November via this link:
Here’s what the Opera House says about the Concert Hall:
Experience the most extraordinary performance space on earth.
With its grand setting, gorgeous wooden panelling and cathedral-like ambience, the world-renowned Concert Hall is the World Heritage-listed Sydney Opera House’s most prestigious and majestic space.
The largest of all Sydney Opera House interior venues, it delivers outstanding acoustics derived from its high vaulted ceiling and white birch timber and brush box panelling.
Also, there will be more news coming about shows in other parts of Australia.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Howler shows, or has bought the album.
