KASEY CHAMBERS & BUSBY MAROU
‘BEHIND THE BARRICADES TOUR’
4 WEEKS TO GO!
Good mates, Kasey Chambers and Busby Marou announced their ‘Behind The Barricades Tour’ last year. After a few scheduling changes we’re excited to announce the 17 date tour along the east coast and South Australia is due to kick off in Victoria in four weeks. Tickets are available here.
Getting together to share stories and a laugh is one of the most special things we can all experience and when you’re Kasey Chambers, Tom Busby and Jeremy Marou, those get-togethers inevitably involve a beach campfire, some fishing, a few guitars and great songs. Bringing those stories to the stage is what ‘Behind The Barricades Tour’ is all about.
Victoria is the first state to host the tour with shows in Narre Warren on Wednesday 4th May, Melbourne’s beautiful Palais Theatre on Thursday 5th May, Ulumbarra in Bendigo on Friday 6th May and Geelong’s Costa Hall on Sunday 8th May. The full dates for New South Wales, ACT, Queensland and South Australia are below.
On announcing the tour Kasey Chambers said “I’ve been mates with the Busby Marou boys for a long time through music, stories and fishing and we are proud to announce that we are sharing this special tour together! First playing our own sets of our most popular songs from down through the years and also joining together for a unique set that showcases our musical connection and friendship like no other. It’s time to take this beach campfire jam to the stage!!”
Busby Marou said “We’ve made a very special connection with the Chambers family over the years and to be able to share the big stage with Kasey for a full tour, is the best news we’ve had in a long time. Kasey is in a league with the most talented and hardest working artists in this country. We can’t wait to bring our full band on this tour and to share the stage with Kasey for some exciting collaborations. Bring on the memories!”
21 years since Kasey’s ARIA #1 and 7 x platinum album ‘Barricades and Brickwalls’ was released and featured the smash hit single ‘Not Pretty Enough’ which also hit #1 on the ARIA Singles chart at the same time, a first for any Australian artist. Kasey will no doubt feature many of the album’s songs in her set in celebration of the milestone.
Busby Marou have gained the reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working live bands best known for their distinctly Australian storytelling and gifted musicianship. The duo won their third APRA songwriting award last year for ‘Over Drinking Over You’ from their ARIA Top 5 album ‘The Great Divide’, their 3rd Top 5 release. Busby Marou will be releasing new music on 22 April, exciting news for fans leading into these shows.
It’s hard to think of two artists who have integrated themselves into the hearts and minds of the Australian music loving public more than Kasey Chambers and Busby Marou. The tour will be a special series of shows that bring together great friends who just happen to write incredible songs and love to share a story.
