HOODOO GURUS 2021 U.S. TOUR POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING 2022
Here we go again!
We are very disappointed to announce that, once again, it is necessary to postpone our upcoming tour of the U.S. The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to cause havoc around the world and that has inevitably affected our international touring plans. Specifically, the Australian Government has ruled out international travel for all Australians for the remainder of 2021 so we are grounded for the time being. Australia’s vaccination program is finally starting to pick up pace after a slow start and, although none of the band’s members have been vaccinated yet, our names are all down for the first available slots. Bring it on!
Given the incredible medical advances in vaccines and therapeutics for SARS-CoV-2 that are already in place (or are not far away) we are confident this will be the last time our tour will have to be delayed. We are very grateful to all the promoters who have rescheduled our shows to Spring 2022 and thank them for their continued support. Luckily, most of the gigs were able to be rebooked at the same venues. If your particular show (or city) was not able to be rescheduled and included on the tour we can only apologize but our bookers have truly have done their best under very trying circumstances.
The past eighteen months have been a [email protected]#% for everyone and we freely acknowledge that our upset touring plans are small beer compared to the tragic consequences suffered by humanity in general. We can only look forward to the day when we can all get together and celebrate life, love and music together again and put this dreadful nightmare behind us. Thankfully, that day appears to be within our grasp now.
To paraphrase the words of that classic hit by Sam & Dave, hold on, we’re coming!
We’re saying we’ll see you later – and we’ll see you soon!

The legendary Hoodoo Gurus. By any measure, one of Australia’s greatest, best loved, most enduring rock bands of all time.
“What’s My Scene”, “I Want You Back”, “Miss Freelove ‘69”, “Like Wow – Wipeout!”, “1,000 Miles Away”, “Bittersweet”, “My Girl”, “Come Anytime”, “I’m Crackin’ Up” – tracks that represent the unmistakeable sound of the irrepressible Hoodoo Gurus; but those are just a sample from their canon of instantly identifiable songs that have helped provide a soundtrack to Australian and international fans right through the 80’s to today.
The Hoodoo Gurus formed in Sydney on January 1, 1981 to play their first “show” in an inner city lounge room. Founding members Dave Faulkner and Brad Shepherd have been joined along the way by Rick Grossman (’89) and Nik Rieth (’19)
The band’s debut Stoneage Romeos, full of garage punk songs and pop references, was named Australian Debut Album of the Year and was released in America where it stayed at number 1 in the Alternative / College charts for 7 weeks, becoming one of the most played albums for the year on the college network.
Mars Needs Guitars, the band’s second album, topped the charts and went gold within three weeks and platinum shortly afterwards. Blow Your Cool, released in 1986, was a massive pop hit propelled by the band’s highest charting single ‘What’s My Scene”. Album 4, Magnum Cum Louder, reaches Number One on the American College and Alternative charts. Followed by albums Kinky, Crank, Blue Cave, Mach Schau and Purity of Essence the band continued to tour regularly through Europe, North America, Australia and Brazil.
The massive best of compilation album “Gold Watch” was released in 2011.
To celebrate 30 years of Gurudom that year they put together the Dig It Up national tour, featuring a line up of some 24 artists that had been part of the band’s creative life including The Sonics, Redd Krosss, The Fleshtones, Died Pretty and the 5,6,7,8’s among other. The shows sold out in all of the capital cities. In 2012 the Dig It Up II festival included The Blue Oyster Cult, Flamin’ Groovies, The Buzzcocks and the Sunny Boys.
Through the span of their international triumphs with sold out tours, 9 gold and platinum records and accolades including being inducted into the Australian Music Hall of Fame, the Gurus have remained one of the most popular and successful musical acts Australia has ever produced.
