In celebration of the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ classic 1968 LP known simply as The White Album, Chris Cheney, Phil Jamieson, Josh Pyke and Tim Rogers are getting the band back together to take the album on a massive Australian tour.
The all-star group of Aussie musicians previously toured the album in 2009 and 2014, performing the record in its entirety from ‘Back in the USSR’ through to ‘Good Night’. Now, they’re reuniting to recognise 50 years of The White Album with shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Adelaide, and Sydney.
“I would never do this show without this exact group of people,” said Josh Pyke. “It’s not a tribute show; it’s us performing these great songs as ourselves.”
Released as a double LP in 1968, The White Album features 30 songs, all of which will be performed as part of Cheney, Jamieson, Pyke and Rogers’ tour. Expect to hear hits like ‘Blackbird’ and ‘Helter Skelter’ alongside the hidden gems of ‘I'm So Tired’, ‘I Will’, and ‘Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey’.
