Australian Tour May / June 2017
Handsome Tours is thrilled to announce that ever-engaging Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando will perform a run of intimate shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth this May/June with tour support from Alexander Biggs.
Evan Dando has achieved music-lover legend status here in Australia. Possessing just the perfect knack for irony, barefaced talent and undeniable ‘screw it’ likability, he’s long been an Antipodean favourite when it comes to songwriters. This time around he’s joining us to mark the reissue of his very first solo LP, 2003’s ‘Baby I’m Bored‘.
One of the most iconic characters to intervene in the landscape of 90’s indie rock, Evan Dando and The Lemonheads have been mainstays for generations of grunge-loving aficionados. ‘Baby I’m Bored’ saw Dando ditch his grunge label in favour of the heart-aching, deeply autobiographical almost alt-country sound that has made it so beloved. These are songs of decline, and in keeping with that, Australia’s very own Ben Lee even penned two of the tracks. This tour will see Evan Dando mine his valuable and varied back-catalogue in the intimate confines of Badlands, Howler and Oxford Art Factory.
Don’t miss seeing him this time around. More info on Evan Dando.
