MARK SEYMOUR & THE UNDERTOW Return In Spring For Encore Tour By Popular Demand

After sold out shows around the country last winter,¬†Frontier Touring¬†are thrilled to announce¬†Mark Seymour & The Undertow¬†will return to capital cities in October and November for a hotly-anticipated and requested encore tour. Mark and his ‚Äėtight as a fist‚Äô band The Undertow return to the stages of some of this country‚Äôs finest theatres for a two-set performance revisiting over three decades of classics filled with emotive storytelling and full production.

‚ÄėAnother stunning performance by one of our country‚Äôs finest singer-songwriters‚Äô
‚ÄstThe Music‚ÄėMark‚Äôs vocals are as strong as ever and there is what I can only describe as a down-to-earth honesty in the delivery of his tunes‚Äô
‚ÄstRock Club 40

The renowned former frontman of seminal Australian band Hunters & Collectors, Mark Seymour is one of our country’s most gifted and respected musicians. Mark has consistently delivered timeless tunes, not only with his band but as a solo artist, winning an ARIA for his second solo album One Eyed Man in 2011.

Spanning over 30 years, Seymour has delivered classics that immediately etched their way into our national consciousness, including¬†‚ÄėHoly Grail‚Äô,¬†‚ÄėDo You See What I See?‚Äô¬†and¬†‚ÄėSay Goodbye‚Äô. Even after leaving Hunters & Collectors and forming The Undertow in 2011, his influence hasn‚Äôt waned. 2017‚Äôs live album¬†Roll Back The Stone – 1985-2016¬†is a powerful testament to that, with¬†STACK Magazine¬†raving that the record ‚Äėshowcases a songwriter who‚Äôs simply getting better with age‚Äô.

Seymour last brought his emotive storytelling to Meredith Music Festival last year:

‚ÄėIf anyone was still trying to pick themselves up after their [Big Thief‚Äôs] show, then Mark Seymour had the medicine. ‚ÄėHoly Grail‚Äô may be a song, he told the crowd, about nobody deserving to die ‚Äď but it makes for a helluva joyous singalong.‚Äô
‚ÄstThe Sydney Morning Herald‚ÄėSeymour‚Äôs songs of finding redemption, facing prison, and husbands kissing their wives and hoping they survive the day at work, reveal a tough life history. The intensity was quite a contrast to the mood of the glitter wearing, glow-stick waving Saturday night party crowd.‚Äô

The Undertow are Mark Seymour (vocals, guitar), Cameron McKenzie (guitars), Peter Maslen (drums) and John Favaro (bass).
