THIRSTY MERC CELEBRATE 15 YEARS ON THE TAKE ME BACK TOUR!

Swamp House News & Reviews 0 Comments

15 years ago, Thirsty Merc bounded onto the music scene with their Summertime sounds, making their mark on radio and TV over the ensuing years and to celebrate this milestone, the band are heading back out on the road on their Take Me Back Tour kicking off in Brisbane on 2 November. With local shows set for the Cambridge Hotel, Thursday, 23 November 2017 and Roche Estate Saturday, 18 November 2017 

Thirsty Merc

Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September 2003, before being signed to Warner Music.  The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self-titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).

Fast forward to 2015 – Thirsty Merc released Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years and spent the next few months crossing the country; running up thousands of Frequent Flyer points and sold out shows.

Besides the hits, the Take Me Back Tour is a celebration of all the music along the way and fans can expect to hear songs they’ve never heard the band perform live before.

Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, said today: “It’s thanks to the fans that we’re still here, loving life and music, 15 years later and this tour is a big “thank you” to everyone who’s sung along with us over the years, as well as a great opportunity to dust off some songs we’ve never included in our shows”.
