Australia has asked for it, and now they shall receive.
This morning Brisbane five-piece Ball Park Music held a press conference to confirm that the rumours are true: we are getting the f**king nerds back on stage.
The ‘GET THE F**KING NERDS BACK ON!’ TOUR 2023 will see the band stopping in Fremantle on 7th May at Freo Social, Odeon Theatre in Hobart on 13th May, Brisbane will see the band perform at The Princess Theatre on 20th May, Sydney on 26th May at Enmore Theatre and on 3rd June at Northcote Theatre in Melbourne.
Joining the nerds for all shows will be indie-punk rockers The Buoys. Local supports will join the party including Ghost Care (WA), Elizabeth M. Drummond (TAS, VIC), Taj Ralph (NSW) and Bean Magazine (QLD). Tickets go on sale 9am local time this Friday 10th February.
The ‘GTFNBO’ Tour 2023 follows hot on the heels of the jam packed GROOVIN THE MOO 2023 festival which will see Ball Park performing with the likes of Denzel Curry, Alt-J, The Chats, Laurel, Skeggs and more across Canberra, Sunshine Coast, Maitland, Wayville, Bendigo and Bunbury. Full dates, line-up and ticket details are HERE.
2022 saw Ball Park Music release album number seven ‘Weirder & Weirder’, another Top 5 ARIA album from the band. triple j listeners voted the album in at #2 on the station’s annual favourite album poll in December and following the #21 spot for the album’s first single Sunscreen on the 2021 Hottest 100 countdown, Stars In My Eyes backed it up with an incredible #8 position on this year’s list. That’s 13 Ball Park Music “golden greats” ranking in triple j’s annual Hottest 100 poll!
The ‘Weirder & Weirder’ album tour also saw Ball Park Music perform their 500th show at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion. NME said of the show “it was clear to see how they’ve continued to mean so much to so many over an illustrious run.”
The ‘GET THE F**KING NERDS BACK ON!’ TOUR 2023 proudly adds to that total and with the band performing in some of Australia’s most beautiful theatres, it will be a tour not to be missed. “Can’t wait for this one,” Cromack said. “Our appetite to perform is huge. We’re looking forward to getting back in some smaller theatres. They feel like our natural home. We wanna be close to the audience, to feel like we’re together in the same room. Paul got a new synth too, so that should be good.” You f**king nerd Cromack.
