The Whitlams will tour nationally in May and June 2018 in their classic four-piece configuration to bring their 25th year to a rowdy finale.

Starting the anniversary year in May 2017 selling out concert halls in each state capital with 60 piece orchestras, they end it with a jaunt through their favourite pub gigs around the country.  They are ditching the conductor and the charts, and are back to the common muscle-memory of 1000 shows and six albums.

The Whitlams’ line up of Tim Freedman on piano and vocals, Jak Housden on guitar, Warwick Hornby on bass and Terepai Richmond on drums will be delivering the sort of sprawling, rambunctious set they have become famous for.

 “We are looking forward to eight weeks straight and delving deep into the catalogue,” said Tim Freedman. “We are going to prepare some rarely played album cuts from the first two albums ‘Introducing’ and ‘Undeniably’ and I’m sure they’ll suit the pubs as well as they did 25 years ago”.

The Whitlams are proud to announce that they are picking up a few other stars of the 90’s to make these nights especially memorable – Alex Lloyd and Deborah Conway will join the bill in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Adelaide.

The band’s career achievements include seven albums, three multi-Platinum and three Gold, and three ARIA Awards including the Best Group presented by Gough Whitlam in 1998. In 2011 Eternal Nightcap was voted 27th on the ABC’s ‘My Favourite Album’ poll, and more recently earned the 17th spot in ‘Triple J¹s Hottest Australian Albums of All Time’.
