Aussie rock kings You Am I announce special show in Torquay

You Am I will stop by the Torquay Hotel with their much loved rock’n’roll which has seen them awarded ten ARIAs and three #1 albums.

Without a single doubt, You Am I are one of Australia’s all-time essential rock n’ roll bands.

More than two decades on from their first album release, You Am I have not only had one of the longest and most successful recording careers in Australia but have also established themselves as one of our most loved live bands. Now Australia’s most defining rock band is headed to regional Victoria for a special show on our coast.

The band, fronted by vocalist/guitarist and songwriter Tim Rogers, will be performing at Torquay Hotel on Friday 28th October (Melb Cup Weekend).

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

The special show will follow a run of New Zealand shows in September and will see the band bring their latest album, The Lives of Others, to the region.

The Lives of Others is the seminal outfit’s 11th studio album, released back in 2021 which guitarist Andy Kent says is ‘very much a You Am I record’.

Describing the making of this album as, ‘a time for reflection’, Kent adds that the band were never in the same room together creating the record, with members separated by border closures and lockdown rules. ‘We basically started making it, took our time, swapped files around… and it took shape.’

Upon release, Lives Of Others debuted at #2 in the ARIA charts and cemented itself as another high-quality addition to their heaving catalogue.
