29 October 2008 YOUTH GROUP concert cancelled
The J has just been informed by the band that the gig at the J on 01 Nov 2009 has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconveniences caused.
Sydney bands, theredsunband & Youth Group are about to set off on a mammoth 18-date co-headlining tour. The month long tour kicks off on October 16th and winds its way through five states & territories over four weeks.
The history of the two bands has long been intertwined:
theredsunband played their first gig with Lizzie Kelly on keyboards supporting Youth Group at the Hopetoun Hotel in 2002. Lizzie was 16 years old and travelling on a fake ID.
Youth Group singer, Toby Martin, first recalls hearing demos of theredsunband in a car with his bandmates and once gave early single "Sleep Forever" five stars in a magazine review.
The good will has continued with the two bands now heading out on tour together in a 12-seater bus, on equal billing, sharing beer and gear and even peforming a special encore.
This week, Sarah Kelly & Toby Martin met at Erskineville Oval (home of the South Sydney Rabbitohs) armed with a 1952 Australian Penny with which to decide who would headline each night of the tour.
The bands will headline one night each in Sydney and Melbourne and share all other dates equally.
