Celebrating 50 Years of Punk Rock Legacy

Official Announcement and Uncertain Farewell

The official announcement of the tour was made on January 29, 2024, through the band’s X page. In an interview with The Guardian on January 28, 2024, co-founder and lead guitarist Deniz Tez hinted at the possibility of this being a farewell tour, stating, “The rationale is to go out there and have at least one more Australian tour and say goodbye to the fans properly. You never know for sure.”

Ticket Information

Tickets for the Birdman Five-O tour are currently on sale, ranging from $87.65 to $97.35 for general admission, depending on the venue. Oztix, Australia’s largest independent ticketing company, is the platform for ticket purchases.

Tour Dates and Venues

Radio Birdman will commence their 50th-anniversary celebrations with two shows at the Croxton Bandroom in Melbourne on June 21st and 22nd. The tour comprises seven stops, including cities like Adelaide and Brisbane, concluding with back-to-back dates at the Manning Bar in Sydney on July 5th and 6th.

Supporting Acts and Relevance

After a hiatus since 2019, Radio Birdman will be supported by local punk bands Civic, Hits, The Special Guests, and the Hard-Ons during the tour. Despite having only three studio albums in their five-decade career, with their latest release in 2006, the band has maintained relevance and a dedicated fanbase. Lead vocalist Rob Younger emphasizes their unique position, stating, “So many bands are described as legends, and I wouldn’t give them the f***ing time of day.”

Tour Schedule:

June 21, 2024: Croxton Bandroom, Melbourne VIC (w/ Civic)
June 22, 2024: Croxton Bandroom, Melbourne VIC (w/ Civic)
June 23, 2024: The Gov, Adelaide SA (w/ Special Guests)
June 28, 2024: The Triffid, Brisbane, QLD (w/ Hits)
June 29, 2024: The Triffid, Brisbane QLD (w/ Hits)
July 5, 2024: Manning Bar, Sydney, NSW (w/ Hard-Ons)
July 6, 2024: Manning Bar, Sydney, NSW (w/ Hard-Ons)

Album Reissue and Legacy

In conjunction with the tour, Radio Birdman will reissue their 2014 album, “Live at Paddington Town Hall 12th December 1977,” via Citadel Records. The band, formed in 1974 by Deniz Tek and Rob Younger, derived their name from a mishearing of the Stooges’ lyric “radio burning,” which they interpreted as “radio birdman.” The band was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007.

Expert Insights

In an editorial comment, a music critic praises Radio Birdman’s enduring influence, stating, “Radio Birdman’s impact on the Australian punk scene is unparalleled. Their 50-year journey is a testament to the timeless power of their music.”

Conclusion

As Radio Birdman gears up for their Birdman Five-O Tour, fans can expect a nostalgic celebration of punk rock history. With uncertainty surrounding the farewell aspect, this tour becomes a poignant opportunity for fans to bid farewell or, as Deniz Tez suggests, perhaps not.
