ICEHOUSE Announce ’40 Years Live’ Tour

Australian rock-band ICEHOUSE have just announced their ’40 Years Live’ Tour, to celebrate 40 years since the band’s very first performance.

The tour will see the group of six perform around Australia and New Zealand at both festival and solo gigs.

ICEHOUSE who originally called themselves FLOWERS, formed as a pub-rock band in Sydney in 1977. ICEHOUSE’s self-titled debut album was the highest selling debut by any band in Australia, and they held that record further into the ’90s.

“40 years ago we had no idea that the band would last longer than a year, let alone still be performing four decades later,” lead singer Iva Davies says.

The ’40 Years Live’ tour, kicking off January 2017, will include a performance in Bendigo at the Bendigo Jockey Club on Saturday, April 22. Tickets will be available from August 29 via the website. The band will also headline the sold out One Electric Day concert at Werribee Park on September 27.
