Event details

Presale: Mon 17 Feb 10AM local time - Tues 18th Feb 11:59pm Onsale: Thur 20 Feb 10AM local time THE WHITLAMS w/ special guest Ben Lee & Emma Russack (Official) GAFFAGE AND CLINK 2020 TOUR Thursday, September 10 Corner Hotel, Richmond VIC ______________________________________________________________________ Ahead of the release of their first new music in ages, The Whitlams are happy to announce a national tour, "Gaffage & Clink," this August and September. “Gaffage and Clink” is backstage lingo referenced in a new song which celebrates the relationship between the band and their long-time tour manager Greg Weaver, who passed away suddenly last year. Over the course of The Whitlams’ storied history, they have released five platinum or gold-selling albums in a row (including the beloved “Eternal Nightcap” LP, which was voted in at #17 on triple j listeners’ Favourite Australian Albums of All Time poll in 2011). Since the release of the band’s last studio album, the gold-certified “Little Cloud” in 2006, The Whitlams have collaborated with various state symphony orchestras (including ten sold-out shows at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall with the Sydney Symphony), performed numerous annual sold out laps of the country and released a ‘best of’ compilation. It’s been... leisurely. But Tim Freedman has recently re-discovered his muse and the band is set to release new music in the coming months.
