The Necks - Tony Bucks & Chris Abrahams solo : 2014 Australian tour
- Date: Friday, 7 February 2014, 8pm
- Venue: Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre — 69 Jonson St, Byron Bay, NSW
Update 5 February: Due to a serious injury to a family member, Lloyd Swanton, bassist with cult improvisational band the Necks, is unable to undertake the first leg of their Australian tour in Byron Bay (Feb 7), Brisbane (Feb 8), Adelaide (Feb 9), Perth (Feb 10 & 11). Instead Tony Buck (drums/percussion) and Chris Abrahams (piano) are offering audiences two solo sets for those dates. Currently the Necks are scheduled to perform the remaining dates for the latter part of the tour as planned including Melbourne, Newcastle, Canberra and Sydney.
They've recently finished one of their most successful UK & European tours ever and their 17th album Open is being hailed internationally as one of their best. Now acclaimed improvising trio The Necks are returning home for their annual pilgrimage around Australia in Feb/March 2014 with a tour that takes in capital cities including Perth (much to the delight of West Australian fans) and a return show at the Sydney Opera House.
The Necks have been playing together for over 25 years and are celebrated world-wide for creating immersive, hypnotic concert experiences over two one-hour sets, with acoustic piano (Chris Abrahams), acoustic bass (Lloyd Swanton) and drums (Tony Buck) slowly conjuring sound mountains out of thin air.
The Necks, Australia’s perennial favourite artists-in-resonance, are at the top of their game. Don’t miss them.
