JOSH PYKE & BOB EVANS ANNOUNCE NATIONAL TOUR

JOSH PYKE AND BOB EVANS ANNOUNCE NATIONAL TOUR FOR

‘ANOTHER EVENING WITH JOSH PYKE AND BOB EVANS’

Beloved Aussie troubadours Josh Pyke and Bob Evans have today announced a massive national co-headline tour, Another Evening with Josh Pyke and Bob Evans, in November and December of this year.  The two friends, who have been playing music together for ten years, are thrilled to be hitting the road, kicking off at The Gov in Adelaide on November 24, and moving through Mannum, Dunsborough, Perth, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Sydney, Canberra, Belgrave and finishing up in Melbourne at the iconic Corner Hotel on December 16.

Having embarked on the first Evening with Josh and Bob a decade ago this year, fans can expect a finely honed performance and a varied, reminiscent repertoire of knockout songs from two of Australia’s best.  Evans, also well renowned as the frontman of Jebediah, enthuses, That first Evening with Josh and Bob ten years ago was a fairly rudimental affair in retrospect.  We were both very much still finding our feet.  Now, we have higher professional standards to which we hold ourselves and those bawdy jokes of a burgeoning bromance have developed in to, well, bawdy dad jokes.  Bah, who am I kidding?  We’re not that different ten years on.”

It’s been a huge couple of years for Josh and Bob, with Josh’s fifth studio album But For All These Shrinking Hearts dropping in 2015, and Bob’s new album Car Boot Sale coming out in June this year, both to widespread critical acclaim.  The seasoned performers both set out on enormously successful solo tours over the last twelve months, but are thrilled to be coming back together for another jaunt around the country, as Josh Pyke says, Ten years ago, I was working at a record store, had one song on the radio and was getting ready to record my first album.  Next thing I knew I was organising a tour with a guy who (though I couldn’t tell him this) was a total hero of mine.  Kev and I met, hung out, got drunk together and then set off on what was my first proper Australian tour.  I learned a lot on that tour about how to do it right, how to perform, how to keep a relationship going back at home.  I can’t wait to hit the road with Kev again, have some fun and play some songs!”

Tickets for the much-anticipated reunion will go on pre-sale on Wednesday September 21 at 9am, and will be available to the public on Friday September 23 at 9am.  Every ticket purchased, will receive a free download of the exclusively recorded tracks, What The Future Holds and Desperate, performed by Josh Pyke and Bob Evans.
