Veteran Kiwi rocker Jon Toogood is no stranger to Australian shores, having completed many a tour across the ditch with his venerated outfit Shihad, but he's leaving the band behind for his next jaunt over for an extensive, intimate, solo run around the country throughout November and December.

Kicking off with a standalone show at the Torquay Hotel, in Victoria, on Friday 2 October, Toogood will complete an 18-date tour that takes in not just the usual capital stops but several in-between, heading on to Coburg (Monday 2 November), Hobart (5 November), Spotswood (6 November), Brisbane (13 & 14 November), Gold Coast (15 November), Geelong (20 November), Frankston (21 November), Melbourne (22 November), Perth (27 November), Scarborough (28 November), Fremantle (29 November), Newcastle (Friday 4 December), Adelaide (5 December, for the Fuck Stereo, Let's Rock festival, and 6 December), Belgrave (10 December) and Canberra, where he wraps up at the Transit Bar on Friday 11 December. 

It'll be a trip unlike any the man has made before as he dives into some of his favourite songs — both his own and others — in a solo, acoustic capacity; given his pedigree, and his records of having the most singles in the Official New Zealand Music Charts by a New Zealand artist (he has 25 entries), not to mention the most #1 albums (five), fans new and old alike should be in for one hell of a performance from one of the most reliable songwriters this side of the equator.

Tickets for Jon Toogood's impending Australian tour are available through participating venues; see theGuide or check The Music App for more booking information.
