Hey Geronimo, an indie rock band from Brisbane, have announced their Jack Daniels Shortest Longest Tour, performing at several pubs in Sydney in one day.
The tour, to be held on Saturday 27 February, will begin at 10am with a performance at the Secret Garden Festival in Camden, before making several stops at pubs throughout the day in Sydney’s Inner West and CBD, before ending with a gig at Moonshine in Manly at 11:30pm.
The one-day tour is an initiative of the Jack Daniels Future Legends activation, which is committed to sharing inspiring stories in music. For the band, it is a way to promote and highlight their debut LP album, which will be released shortly.
As part of the tour, a free hop-on hop-off bus will transfer patrons, the band and their equipment to each new venue.
Lead singer of Hey Geronimo, Pete Kilroy, is looking forward to the tour.
“This is an incredible opportunity for us to showcase the music from our forthcoming album to fans in every corner of Sydney. Ordinarily it would take bands months or even years to play in all of these venues, we’re going to blitz it in just one day – if all goes to plan! Jump on the bus with us, it’s going to be a fun journey.”
Pubs that will be hosting the indie rock band on the tour include Newtown Hotel, Chippendale Hotel, The Bald Faced Stag, Kings Cross Hotel and Captain Cook Hotel. Attendance is free to all ten gigs.
Clayton Ries, events curator for The Bald Faced Stag, is excited for the hotel to be a part of the tour.
“The Bald Faced Stag is extremely happy and feels privileged to be a part of the Hey Geronimo tour and applauds the overall concept. As a venue we are looking to push boundaries in regards to the events that do occur within our space and this goes directly along that line of creativity and point of difference.”
