Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson yesterday (September 30) announced rescheduled Queensland dates for his East Coast tour.
Jamieson performed a handful of Sydney shows in August as part of the tour, however, border closures forced him to cancel its Queensland leg.
The singer-songwriter had originally planned to play Queensland shows during August but subsequently postponed them until October. Now, he has rescheduled the dates for December.
Jamieson made the announcement in a social media post.
“HO! HO! HO! The third time is a charm yes? Due to the QLD borders being impenetrable I cannot get in to play my OCTOBERFEST concerts next week,” Jamieson lamented on Twitter.
“So… it will a SANTAFEST. Let’s make the yuletide gay?”

Tickets to all shows are on sale now via Jamieson’s website and are selling fast.
While Jamieson did not have any plans to play Victorian shows on his tour, he did team up with The Living End’s Chris Cheney to perform a livestream show from Melbourne’s Cherry Bar in June. The ‘One Night Only’ livestream took place on June 17.
Jamieson had been scheduled to support The Whitlams on their national ‘Gaffage & Clink’ tour earlier this year. However, the band postponed the tour in compliance with coronavirus-imposed venue restrictions.
Jamieson will join the Sydney four-piece for a handful of their new dates, which are booked in for August and September of 2021.
Phil Jamieson’s Queensland shows dates are:
Thursday 17 – Gold Coast, Miami Marketta
Friday 18 – Sunshine Coast, Sol Bar
Sunday 20 – Brisbane, The Triffid
N.B. Phil Jamieson will perform an early show and a late show on each evening of the tour.
