FANS of Australian band Boy & Bear will be treated to a live performance at Magnums Hotel, this Thursday, April 17, as part of a massive regional tour.
Singer-songwriter Dave Hoskings said this would be the band's biggest ever regional tour.
"And we are very much looking forward to it," he said.
"We love the idea of playing to new people in new and exciting parts of the country."
Boy & Bear are currently riding a wave of success from their critically acclaimed second album, Harlequin Dream. The album is officially certified gold in Australia, having sold more than 35,000 copies since its release last year.
Harlequin Dream is the follow up album to the band's platinum-selling debut album, Moonfire and was co-produced by Boy & Bear and Wayne Connelly.
Harlequin Dream has also made it to number seven on Triple J's listener poll for Top Ten Favourite Albums, with Boy & Bear being the only Australian band to make the list. Port Macquarie troubadour, Patrick James has been named as the band's support act for their 27 shows including Airlie Beach.
Since being unearthed by Triple J in late 2012, James has made a name for himself on the national touring circuit, supporting The Paper Kites, Emma Louise and Josh Pyke. Last year, a song from his recent, All About To Change EP featured on the Channel Ten drama, Wonderland.
The Boy & Bear tour will see Patrick James showcase some new material, kicking off what looks to be a big year.
"It's really overwhelming to be given this opportunity to join Boy & Bear on tour. This will be the biggest tour I've done and to do it with a band of that stature and quality is unreal. I can't wait," he said.
