“It’s just me up there with a guitar, there’s no big band or guitars, or loud guitars or drums to hide behind, you’re kind of naked up there and to me it come full circle cause all the songs are written like this, this is how they started.”
From release: Following a successful Australian tour earlier this year with his Grammy-nominated & multi-platinum Alt-rock band Everclear, Art Alexakis will return to our shores in February 2024 to perform hits & fan favourites from his extensive catalogue. Fans will have the chance to hear classics such as Santa Monica, Father Of Mine, I Will Buy You A New Life, Everything To Everyone, and plenty more performed stripped back in an intimate acoustic setting.
The national run of dates will also see Brendan B. Brown of U.S. pop/rock outfit Wheatus join as support. Expect to hear the likes of the classic anthemic chart topper Teenage Dirtbag, along with a selection of songs from Wheatus’ five albums.
Both artists’ solo sets will also see them telling in-depth stories behind each of their songs and interacting with the audience, giving fans the unique opportunity to ask each of the artists any questions of their choosing throughout the evening. This is a one-of-a-kind, unique, and interactive show that you will not want to miss.
We caught up with Art to discuss his acoustic tour of Australia, the process behind it, songwriting processes, future endeavours, hamburgers, the music industry, and so much more…
