Icehouse Announce Own Headline Tour

5 July 2012 | 9:55 am | Scott Fitzsimons

After doing all the 'comeback' shows last year, Icehouse will take Primitive Man to the road.


Seminal Australian rock band Icehouse have announced a national tour this morning, the culmniation of a succesful 12 month return to the live scene.

Having played a number of special shows, winery dates and festivals, the band will focus on their classic albums Primitive Man, Man Of Colours for a run of headline shows on their own terms.

In a statement today the band said, "Getting the band back out touring last year turned out to be a lot of fun and excitement for us all. We've had varied requests to perform again and decided that in this double Anniversary year for two of the most known Icehouse albums, the best way would be to perform a few more songs from both albums.

"Having done the festivals, wineries and entertainment centres since last October, we also wanted to have the chance to get closer to the audiences so we're playing a variety of venues, ranging from Hamer Hall in Melbourne to a couple of nights in Dee Why (just around the corner from where the band played its early gigs as Flowers) and big pub venues in Brisbane – its just like the days when we toured Primitive Man!”
