ICEHOUSE ANNOUNCES THE
PRIMITIVE COLOURS TOUR IN CELEBRATION OF THEIR FANS
On the back of a hugely successful twelve months,
ICEHOUSE is excited to announce they will be once again taking
to the Australian stages with a tour in 2012. Returning to the
live scene in 2011, the band performed at music festivals across
the country and kickstarted 2012 by performing with long time
friends Hall & Oates, by the end of May having played to over
Now, due to the demand from fans around the country
via email, post, Twitter and Facebook, ICEHOUSE are thrilled to
announce their own tour, titled Primitive Colours,
which focuses on songs from two of their most celebrated albums,
Primitive Man and Man of Colours.
2012 is a significant year for the iconic Australian
band with the 25th anniversary of their fifth album Man
of Colours and the 30th anniversary of their second commended
album Primitive Man. In celebration of these albums
which will both be re-released in Anniversary Editions, ICEHOUSEs
show will consist of songs from both these albums as well as some
familiar hits from the rest of the re-released ICEHOUSE catalogue.
Getting the band back out touring last
year turned out to be a lot of fun and excitement for us all.
Weve had varied requests to perform again and decided that
in this double Anniversary year for two of the most known ICEHOUSE
albums, the best way would be to perform a few more songs from
both albums. Having done the festivals, wineries and entertainment
centres since last October, we also wanted to have the chance
to get closer to the audiences so were playing a variety
of venues, ranging from Hamer Hall in Melbourne to a couple of
nights in Dee Why (just around the corner from where the band
played its early gigs as Flowers) and big pub venues in Brisbane
its just like the days when we toured Primitive Man!

for the show, Formel Eins, and made it into the UK Top
20. Other singles, "Street Café" and "Glam"

ICEHOUSEs fifth album, Man of Colours,
reached Gold status in international markets including the US

as well as fan favourite "My Obsession," title track
"Man of Colours" and the rocking "Nothing Too Serious."
