Boy And Bear And Cloud Control National Tours

I’ve been spending all my time on this blog writing my reviews of Splendour for the last two weeks, so I’ve missed some pretty cool tour announcements. Here they are, better late than never.

Firstly, Boy And Bear have announced that they will be undertaking an (east coast-ish) national tour, following from their hugely successful performance at Splendour and their opening slot on Mumford And Sons’ tour. They’re a great live band and I can’t recommend strongly enough that you see them at these smaller venues while you still can.

Melbourne readers can catch them at the East Brunswick Club on the 23rd of October for $15, with tickets already on sale and selling fast. National details of the tour are as follows:

Thursday, 30 September – Great Northern Hotel, Byron Bay
Friday, 1 October – Sound Lounge, Gold Coast
Saturday, 2 October – The Zoo, Brisbane
Thursday, 7 October – Fowlers Live, Adelaide
Friday, 15 October – Hotel New York, Launceston
Saturday, 16 October – Republic Bar, Hobart
Thursday, 21 October – Karova Lounge, Ballarat
Friday, 22 October – National Hotel, Geelong
Saturday, 23 October – East Brunswick Club, Melbourne
Wednesday, 27 October – Harp Hotel, Wollongong
Thursday, 28 October – Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle
Friday, 29 October – Oxford Art Factory, Sydney

Secondly, Cloud Control, also following their great set at Splendour as well as the massive critical and public response to their debut album ‘Bliss Release’, have announced an (again east coast-ish) national tour. This is apparently the last chance to see the band before they temporarily depart our shores for an international tour, so if you haven’t seen their excellent live show yet then be sure to check it out.

It doesn’t hurt that there are some great support acts included in the tour, namely Seekae and Deep Sea Arcade. Melbourne readers can catch the band at The Corner Hotel on the 1st of October for $20, with tickets already on sale. National details of the tour are:

Saturday, 25 September – Coaster, Central Coast
Thursday, 30 September – Karova Lounge, Ballarat
Friday, 1 October – Corner Hotel, Melbourne
Saturday, 2 October – Fowlers, Adelaide
Wednesday, 6 October – Republic Bar Hobart
Thursday, 7 October – Hotel New York, Launceston
Sunday, 10 October – One Movement Festival, Perth
Thursday, 14 October – Newcastle Uni – Bar on the hill, Newcastle
Friday, 15 October – Metro Theatre, Sydney
Saturday, 16 October – Grand Hotel, Wollongong
Thursday, 21 October – Beach Hotel, Byron Bay
Friday, 22 October – The Zoo, Brisbane
Saturday, 23 October – Coolongatta Hotel, Coolangatta
Friday, 29 October – Hotel Gearin, Katoomba
Saturday, 30 October – Stonefest, Canberra

Two great Australian bands, two very reasonable prices. Despite having seen both bands numerous times before, I’ll definitely be hitting up both of these tours, they should be great!

  1. Hi Lachy
    I found your blog when searching for Jinja Safari, started reading it and really enjoyed it. I went to The Middle East and Cloud Control’s websites and heard some of their music. I plan to buy their CDs on payday. Thank you for introducing me to new music. I love music so much, but sometimes I’m in a rut of listening to the same stuff, or – gasp – commercial radio! I am going to explore some more music in the next weeks, you’ve inspired me.
    And I’m back to searching for Jinja Safari now.

  2. argh oh no! i didn’t think about cloud control going on their own tour – i just booked tix to see them play along with pikelet and guy blackman at the writers fest :( catching them at their own show would be so much better!

    • Wouldn’t worry about it too much, Pikelet will be worth the money herself, and even if you want to head to both shows it’s only an extra $20 :)
