The Whitlams 2019 – Last drinks at the Morrison Hotel Tour

It’s 20 years since “Blow Up the Pokies” was released on the multi-platinum album “Love This City” and even though all the band can really do is shrug their shoulders that nothing has changed on the pokies front they can mark the passage of time and recall partying like it was 1999 by playing most of the album each night on this tour.

The Whitlams are also thrilled to announce that two of their favourite artists will join the shows in the capital cities next year – Bob Evans and Ella Hooper – in the 2019  Last drinks  at the Morrison Hotel Tour.

Tim Freedman said “ I have identified 12 songs and two bonus tracks that I still want to play from “Love This City”, and that will make up the core of the shows this May and June. The other half of the rambunctious long set will wander widely through the other five albums, stopping off for six minutes at Bob Dylan’s ‘Tangled up in Blue’ which it’s time to play again”.

The band’s career achievements include seven albums, three multi-Platinum and three Gold and three ARIA Awards, including the Best Group presented by Gough Whitlam in 1998. In 2011 Eternal Nightcap was voted 27th on the ABC’s ‘My Favourite Album’ poll, and more recently earned the 17th spot in ‘Triple J¹s Hottest Australian Albums of All Time from my iPhone
