The Teskey Brothers have unveiled an incredible night they just experienced: headlining London’s Hammersmith Eventim Apollo to a packed-out room.

“Playing Apollo was special beyond words,” the band wrote on social media, the caption accompanying a series of photos snapped by Ben Houdijk from the stunning venue.

They added, “It's nearly six years since our first London show in a pub for 50 people and we're just so so grateful to everyone in the audience and behind the scenes who've made this journey possible. Loved playing London Bridge for the first time for you lot too!”

The band also thanked “lens master” Houdijk and US songwriter Joy Oladokun for opening the show.

The Teskey Brothers’ return to the UK followed their sold-out show at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire in January 2020.

This June and July, the Aussie outfit will open for Hozier on his UK tour, and support Bruce Springsteen And The E-Street Band for one-night-only on Tuesday, 25 July, at the Prato della Gerascia in Monza, Italy, alongside fellow Australian talent, Tash Sultana.

A few months ago, The Teskey Brothers broke hearts when they announced that two founding members, Brendon Love (bass) and Liam Gough (drums) would be leaving the band

"Hey everyone. Today we’re sharing the news that Brendon Love and Liam Gough are departing as members of The Teskey Brothers,” the remaining members, Josh and Sam Teskey, wrote on social media.

"It has been an honour to work with these guys over the years. As rhythm section they have been the backbone of the band, holding down a tight groove and helping to shape our sound. We want to sincerely thank them for their commitment through all of this crazy rollercoaster ride.”

The brothers continued, “This year we decided bring it back to where it all began just the two of us brothers making the music we love, more to come on that soon. In the meantime we look forward to closing out this chapter with Liam and Brendon this Sunday in Melbourne at Palace Foreshore. We hope you can come along and toast to them with us. Love Josh and Sam Teskey."

Love and Gough formed The Teskey Brothers with Josh and Sam Teskey in 2008 and have been dominating the Australian blues and rock music landscape ever since. Their last show as a four-piece was on Sunday, 4 December, at the Palace Foreshore in St Kilda.
