Mark Seymour & The Undertow Returning In Spring For Encore Tour

After sold out shows around the country last winter, Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce Mark Seymour & The Undertow will return to capital cities in October and November for a hotly-anticipated and requested encore tour. Mark and his ‘tight as a fist’ band The Undertow return to the stages of some of this country’s finest theatres for a two-set performance revisiting over three decades of classics filled with emotive storytelling and full production.

‘Another stunning performance by one of our country’s finest singer-songwriters’ – The Music

‘Mark’s vocals are as strong as ever and there is what I can only describe as a down-to-earth honesty in the delivery of his tunes’ – Rock Club 40

The renowned former frontman of seminal Australian band Hunters & Collectors, Mark Seymour is one of our country’s most gifted and respected musicians. Mark has consistently delivered timeless tunes, not only with his band but as a solo artist, winning an ARIA for his second solo album One Eyed Man in 2011.

Spanning over 30 years, Seymour has delivered classics that immediately etched their way into our national consciousness, including ‘Holy Grail’, ‘Do You See What I See?’ and ‘Say Goodbye’. Even after leaving Hunters & Collectors and forming The Undertow in 2011, his influence hasn’t waned. 2017’s live album Roll Back The Stone – 1985-2016 is a powerful testament to that, with STACK Magazine raving that the record ‘showcases a songwriter who’s simply getting better with age’.

Seymour last brought his emotive storytelling to Meredith Music Festival last year:

‘If anyone was still trying to pick themselves up after their [Big Thief’s] show, then Mark Seymour had the medicine. ‘Holy Grail’ may be a song, he told the crowd, about nobody deserving to die – but it makes for a helluva joyous singalong.’ – The Sydney Morning Herald

‘Seymour’s songs of finding redemption, facing prison, and husbands kissing their wives and hoping they survive the day at work, reveal a tough life history. The intensity was quite a contrast to the mood of the glitter wearing, glow-stick waving Saturday night party crowd.’ – Daily Review

The Undertow are Mark Seymour (vocals, guitar), Cameron McKenzie (guitars), Peter Maslen (drums) and John Favaro (bass).
