When they returned to the stage a couple of years back, Icehouse played two gigs that solidified their decision to return to the stage; one at the Belmont 16s Sailing Club, and the other at Sydney’s Rooty Hill RSL.
“One of the first shows we played was at Belmont Sailing Club and I have to admit it was a bit daunting on the night. However, my fears were completely unfounded – the show sold out, the audience were fantastic and we had a ball. Then a few weeks later we were at Rooty Hill – the same thing happened with a wonderful enthusiastic crowd,” said frontman Iva Davies.
In a way of thanking the good people who attended these comeback gigs, the band decided to revisit the venues in preparation for an upcoming outdoor show on Rottnest Island.
Michael Paynter will also be joining the group for the unique shows performing both with his own band and also joining the Icehouse boys on stage for what is tipped to be two very special performances.
Icehouse promises to play a number of tracks from their extensive catalogue that includes over 30 Top 40 singles and 8 Top 10 albums.
It wasn’t until they released their platinum selling best of album, ‘White Hear: 30 Hits’, that the group decided to return to the stage following a 16 year hiatus. Since their return they have played numerous sell-out shows and festivals, and have most recently toured as ‘Dubhouse’ where they performed reggae versions of their classic songs.
