Aussie rock icons Hoodoo Gurus will hit the road in December on their 40th anniversary tour.
The band led by Perth-born frontman Dave Faulkner formed at the end of 1980 in Sydney as Le Hoodoo Gurus before releasing nine albums between 1984 and 2010.
The ARIA Hall of Fame band’s first four albums topped the US college charts, while they scored four Top 20 singles in Australia — Bittersweet, Like Wow-Wipeout, Miss Freelove ’69 and What’s My Scene?
Today the Gurus unveil new single World of Pain. Faulkner and bandmates Brad Shepherd, Rick Grossman and Nik Rieth play outdoor venues in capital cities on the five-date tour, which wraps up at Belvoir Amphitheatre on December 11.
Old mates, American rockers the Dandy Warhols support all dates.
“There are gonna be plenty of opportunities for crowd singalongs and after the turmoil of the last year and a half, that’s gonna be incredibly therapeutic for everyone,” Faulkner said.
Tickets go on sale May 28.
