The day after kicking off a string of hometown live dates in Byron Bay, Skegss have confirmed a fifth and final show at Brunswick Picture House in Brunswick Heads for this Saturday (July 11).
On June 30, Skeggs announced the cheekily named Under the Thunder Black Tie World Tour. The four shows promptly sold out. Today (July 9), they’ve confirmed a 6pm Saturday show, taking place after the sold-out 1pm gig that same day. Tickets for the new show are on sale now via Skegss’ official website.
The band have also shared a 30-second video capturing what the first black-tie show on Wednesday was like. Watch it here:
Patrons will need to to suit up for the occasion, with the band announcing a compulsory black-tie dress code for ticketholders. In compliance with coronavirus venue restrictions, each show will have a limited capacity of 50 ‘inside’ tickets and 50 ‘outside’ tickets. These shows are the trio’s first of the year.
Cronulla-based singer-songwriter Adam Newling will support Skegss for the duration of their Brunswick Heads residency. In addition, Skegss have booked live magicians to entertain fans during the evening. There will also be cheese platters and limited edition merchandise on offer.
For those unable to attend, the band will be live-streaming the Friday and Saturday (1pm) shows on their Facebook page. Tickets for the livestreams are available now here.
The tour announcement comes in the wake of the band’s recent single release. The Byron Bay trio shared ‘Under The Thunder’, their first single of the year, on June 24.
Speaking to triple j, Skegss revealed that ‘Under The Thunder’ almost didn’t make it into the recording studio. The band revealed that they “were going to not do it anymore I think at one point.”
“We almost axed it because it was so different for us,” bassist Toby Cregan explained.
“[But] we all kind of agreed that maybe it’s kind of good to mix it up every now and then.”
