The Necks - national tour 2010


The Necks - national tour 2010

Event Details

Legendary improvisers, The Necks, who count Brian Eno and Nick Cave among their legions of fans are returning to Australia for a national tour in February/March 2010. 

Not entirely ambient, nor minimalist, nor jazz, The Necks create a music that is unique in the world today. Since their beginnings nearly 22 years ago, they have continued to craft an immersive, hypnotic, ritual-like concert experience. As The Guardian (UK) said: 'The Necks can find eternity in a grain of sand.' Their completely improvised concerts on acoustic piano, bass and drums have the room ringing with sound and the audience utterly mesmerized.

In the last couple of years, The Necks have been going from strength to strength; they have completed several tours of Australia, Europe and the US, performed at the Nick Cave-curated 'All Tomorrow’s Parties', collaborated in an acclaimed foray into theatre with Back to Back Theatre’s 'Food Court', performed with legend Brian Eno in a series of three sold-out concerts at the Sydney Opera House, and released their fifteenth album, Silverwater, in 2009.
Fortunately for Australian fans, The Necks undertake annual tours of their homeland, and it is with great pride that they announce their upcoming run of dates for February – March 2010. Highlights of the tour include a reprise of The Necks’ legendary presentations at Sydney’s Metro and the Brisbane Powerhouse, return visits to favoured haunts such as Melbourne’s Corner Hotel, Byron Bay’s Community Centre and Perth’s Charles Hotel, and a season at the Adelaide Festival with Back to Back Theatre’s Food Court. Long-term fans of this unique band come back time after time for their annual fix, as The Necks slowly conjure their sound mountains out of thin air, but if you haven’t heard them before, come along and check them out. You’ve never known two hours to pass so quickly. (Image: Tim Williams)
