Radio Birdman, legendary outsiders of Australian rock and roll, celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2024.
This truly landmark achievement will see the ARIA Hall of Fame inductees take the stage for a series of special farewell performances around the country in June and July.
In a time when absolutely everything is deemed iconic, Radio Birdman remain the real deal. They rewrote the rules of the Australian music industry by sheer force of will and carved out their own path, which many others have since followed. Their logo, still mysterious even after half a century, is now emblazoned on the bodies of a global legion of fans, their cars, surfboards and much more. These final performances in June and July will underscore why.
To mark the occasion, the explosive 2014 album, Live At Paddington Town Hall 12th December 1977 will be reissued by Citadel Records.
Radio Birdman have added a third Sydney show to their June/July 50th Anniversary tour, with the first two having sold out in the first week.
In a statement, the band have said: “Due to overwhelming demand, there will be one extra Sydney concert on Sunday 7 July to accommodate those who were unable to get tickets to the previously scheduled Sydney concerts. The RB50 tour has been limited to just eight dates due to personal factors. The band extends sincere thanks to all supporters and friends everywhere, and regrets not being able to return to Perth, Hobart, and multiple regional cities on this tour.”
