With only a few weeks of 2021 left the music news is coming in thick and fast! Today, hot off the back of their most recent single 'On My Own', Brisbane rockers Beddy Rays have announced their first national headline tour taking place in February and March next year! That's right folks, the boys from Reddy Bay are taking their unforgettable hooks, punchy drums and in-your-face riffs to the live stage with what they're calling their On Ya Bike Tour!
'We're hoppin on our 4 person tandem cycle and pedalling our way to your city!' says the band, and true to their word they'll be hitting spots all over the country, playing dates in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Perth and Adelaide. Joining the four happy-go-lucky larrikins on the road will be beloved mates Radolescent and Sophisticated Dingo, 'so ya best believe it's gonna be a pearla!' Tickets for the tour are on sale now, head to: www.beddyrays.com/#tour for more info.
The announcement caps off a great year for Beddy Rays who kicked off 2021 with a sweet Hottest 100 placement (#57 for 'Sobercoaster') before going on to become finalists for both the National Indigenous Music Awards and Queensland Music Awards, and being named the 2021 Levi’s Music Prize Winners. They also recently nailed their first ever triple j Like A Version and -- in case you somehow missed it -- the must watch is here.
Don't forget to check out their truly awesome tour video from their recent insane live shows in QLD. Catch it below!
