Kevin Borich Express simply cannot be stopped, with a new run of east coast dates for the band’s national Duets tour – supporting the star-studded solo album Borich dropped last July – kicking off in just over a month.

The nine-date tour will kick off on Saturday February 17, when Borich and co. will take over the Norton Music Factory on the Sunshine Coast. Two weeks later, on Saturday March 2, they’ll hit the National Park Hotel in Tasmania – and another week after that (on Saturday March 9), they’ll play the Shaws Bay Hotel in Ballina.

Heading into some more “metropolitan” areas, Kevin Borich Express will continue their tour in March with dates in Sydney (Friday March 22 at the Camelot Lounge), Canberra (Saturday March 23 at the Harmonie German Club) and Melbourne (Thursday March 28 at The Burvale Hotel, then George Lane the following night). And from there, they’ll wrap things up with a show at the Way Out West Club in Newport on Sunday March 31, and the Tilba Valley Winery in Corunna on Friday April 19.

Tickets for all nine shows are on sale now via Borich’s website – head here to get amongst the action.

When he released Duets in July 2023, Borich described the album as “a celebration of a lifetime of music with friends”. Across a mighty 12 tracks, the effort saw him link up with legends like Suze DeMarchi (who sings with Borich on Wrapped In Rock), Ian Moss (Straight From My Heart), Joe Walsh (The Fires), Tim Rogers (Keep It To Myself), Ella Hooper (I’m Together) and Ross Wilson (Hate Pill).

Borich also noted that the album came to be as “a real labour of love”, explaining: “Recorded over the last several years, we had so many obstacles, so many challenges, so many late nights. [Producer] Nick [O’Donnell] reckons I’m a vampire.”

Tim Rogers also vouched for Borich’s insane work ethic, saying in a statement of his own: “I’m always struck by his passion, finesse and POWER. In his songwriting, singing and of course that extension of his body with six strings. We had a blast recording Keep It To Myself. It is easily one of the fondest memories of my livings. Hail to the Chief! Rev it up Kev!”
