That’s right. Believe it or not, there is some news regarding our beloved band! For the first time since the ‘split‘, there are plans for a gig.
News from Australia is that Wolfmother will headline the Clipsal 500 evening entertainment schedule, rocking the stage on Sunday 22 March 2009. Yes that is a looong time away, but hey, it means that there is a band to headline! Which means that there is very likely to be a band right now, though of course we don’t know what the lineup looks like …
By way of background, he Clipsal 500 is a four day motorsport event that is expected to attract crowds of up to 300,000. Races include a variety of car types, from V8 supercars to Porsche Carreras.
But it’s the evening entertainment that has me and many others interested. Not only will Wolfmother headline, but also The Living End, Pete Murray and Lee Kernaghan. The full ‘2009 Jim Beam TrackSounds On-Circuit Concert Series’ is as follows:
- Thursday, 19 March, 2009 – The Living End, Gyroscope, The Butterfly Effect and The Potbelleez, presented by Nova 91.9.
- Friday, 20 March, 2009 – Nova 91.9 presents Pete Murray, Faker and Operator Please.
- Saturday, 21 March, 2009 – Lee Kernaghan, Beccy Cole and The McClymonts, presented by FIVEaa.
- Sunday, 22 March, 2009 – Wolfmother and The Getaway Plan, presented by Mix 102.3.
Hopefully, as one forum member put it, “the snowball has started rolling” and we’ll start to get some more news out of the band and their management.
