Everclear frontman goes solo
Following a successful tour in early 2023 with his Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum alt-rock band Everclear, Art Alexakis will return to Australian shores next month to play hits and fan favourites from his extensive catalogue.
Fans will have the chance to hear classics such as “Santa Monica”, “Father Of Mine”, “I Will Buy You A New Life”, “Everything To Everyone”, and many more, performed stripped back in an intimate acoustic setting.
The national run of dates – which includes Geelong – will also see Brendan B. Brown of US pop/rock outfit Wheatus join as support.
Expect to hear anthemic chart topper “Teenage Dirtbag”, along with a selection of songs from Wheatus’ five albums.
Both artists’ solo sets will also see them telling in-depth stories behind each of their songs and interacting with the audience, giving fans the unique opportunity to ask each of the artists questions throughout the evening.
Promoters are touting the tour as a unique and interactive show fans will not want to miss.
“Ever since the early days of Everclear I’ve enjoyed going out and performing solo,” Alexakis said.
“It’s a way for me to peel back the layers and get to the core of what I’m trying to communicate through my songwriting.
“Australia has always been like a second home to me and I’m excited to be coming back solo after our amazing tour this past February.
“I’m going to be performing the Everclear hits, fan favorites, deep tracks, maybe a song or two from my solo record, and possibly even a cover.
“I’m stoked to be bringing Brendan from Wheatus with me.
“They toured with us in the States on our Summerland Tour in 2021 and we became very good friends and big admirers of each other’s work, so it’s a dream come true to be able to tour together again.”
Art Alexakis and Brendan B. Brown will perform at The Wool Exchange, Geelong on February 15 from 7pm.
