Hoodoo Gurus announce Back to the Stoneage Anniversary Tour

Hot off the announcement of their extremely limited, vinyl collector’s set, Hoodoo Gurus have announced a national tour celebrating 40 years since they released Stoneage Romeos.

Originally released in March 1984, Stoneage Romeos, was the Gurus’ debut album and featured the hits Leilani, Tojo, My Girl and I Want You Back. It reached #29 on the Australian Album Chart and the album went on to win Best Debut Album at the 1984 Countdown Awards. Stoneage Romeos has consistently appeared in the Top 10 on almost every Top 50 and Top 100 Australian album lists.

Dave Faulkner said, “‘Stoneage Romeos’ was a pivotal album for us and many of its songs have remained live favourites ever since. It’ll be great to play some of those “less-travelled” songs from it on this tour – even though that means we’ll be playing longer sets to fit everything else in as well. Hah! To my mind that’s a win-win situation.”

The Back to the Stoneage 2024 national tour will see the band play the Stoneage Romeos album in full followed by a selection of hit songs and album tracks. The tour will kick off in Thirroul/Wollongong (Anita’s Theatre) on 14 November, before heading to Newcastle (Civic Theatre – 15 November), Gosford (The Entertainment Grounds – 16 November), Melbourne (Palais Theatre – 22 November), Adelaide (Hindley St Music Hall – 23 November), Canberra (Llewellyn Hall – 28 November), two shows in Sydney (The Coliseum – 29 November and the Enmore Theatre – 30 November), Sunshine Coast (The Station – 6 December), Brisbane (The Fortitude Music Hall – 7 December), Gold Coast (Miami Marketta – 8 December) finishing up at Perth’s Astor Theatre on Friday, 13 December 2024.
