The Beards - Sadly all good things must come to an end and this year see’s everyone’s favourite Australian Bearded rockers The Beards calling it a day, the band who formed back in 2005 have made a career of singing about Beards and in the ten years they have been together as a band they have toured constantly and released 4 studio albums titled ‘The Beards’, ‘Beards, Beards, Beards’, ‘Having A Beard Is The New Not Having A Beard’, ‘The Beards Album’ and also the most recent greatest hits ‘Ten Long Years, One Long Beard’ and every song on these albums is about beards.
Back at the start of the year the band announced that they were calling it a day and frontman Johann Beardraven had this to say “We feel like we've achieved what we set out to achieve through music, everybody now agrees that beards are great, so the time has come for us to rest on our laurels. But not before we go around one last time and say a heartfelt thankyou to everyone who's come out to see us over the years, and especially to everyone who's grown a beard, or adopted a pro-beard attitude.”
The band have spent the majority of the year touring across Australia saying a final farewell to their homebound fans and now the band are currently touring across mainland Europe before saying a final farewell to their UK fans in the middle of October and it is the perfect time to see the band on the live circuit as not only is it a farewell tour but the band will also be playing two jam-packed sets of bearded anthems from their impressive back catalogue, incorporating both the stripped-back acoustic sound that helped them gain radio play in Australia, and the infectious pop-rock that has won them a legion of fans worldwide.
The Beards are much-loved by audiences around the world for their refreshingly original concept, highly-interactive live shows and trademark sense of humour. Don't miss this hugely-entertaining Aussie phenomenon's victory lap of Europe this October.
