Canadian folk-bluegrass 4-piece, The Dead South are making their debut live appearance in Australia in January 2023 playing to over 11,000 fans across the country.
Propelled by the momentum of over 900M streams across streaming platforms, a platinum-certified album (Canada), a gold-certified single (USA), two Canadian JUNO Award wins, airplay on acclaimed series Umbrella Academy and American Gods, SOLD OUT tours worldwide with performances at iconic live destinations including Glastonbury, Brixton Academy, and Red Rocks Amphitheater, they offer a highly nonconformist, hugely entertaining take on the traditional string band sound.
Proof of their strong international fan base is evident in their consistently sold-out shows to thousands across North America and Europe in their most recent 58-stop 2022 tour.
The summer announcement of their first-ever Australian and New Zealand was met with an overwhelming response. Completely SOLD-OUT, they have since added additional stops and upgraded venues to accommodate the demand.
“We’ve waited long enough – Australia, let’s do this. . . Can’t wait to say hello to all of our friends down under,” – The Dead South
With an Australian tour spanning NSW, VIC, QLD and TAS their 7 stop tour will be playing at esteemed venues such as The Enmore Theatre (NSW), Northcote Theatre (VIC) and Fortitude Music Hall (QLD) to name a few.
The Dead South will bring their ensemble of banjo, mandolin, cello and guitar to southern shores, sharing their interpolation of the bluegrass genre by morphing punk, rock and acoustic elements for an electrifying and unparalleled live performance. A brotherhood formed in University and forged on the road, their music is defined by intricate solos and harmonies traversing themes of identity, influence and inspiration.
