Following a successful Australian tour earlier this year with his Grammy-nominated & multi-platinum Alt-rock band EverclearArt Alexakis will return to our shores in February 2024 to perform hits & fan favourites from his extensive catalogue. Fans will have the chance to hear classics such as Santa Monica, Father Of Mine, I Will Buy You A New Life, Everything To Everyone, and plenty more performed stripped back in an intimate acoustic setting.

The Everblack Podcast caught up with Art Alexakis from Everclear to talk about his upcoming Australian Acoustic tour with Brendan B Brown, recent live album, next years Sparkle and Fade 30th anniversary, his love of Rush and Misfits and more.

The national run of dates will also see Brendan B. Brown of U.S. pop/rock outfit Wheatus join as support.  Expect to hear the likes of the classic anthemic chart topper Teenage Dirtbag, along with a selection of songs from Wheatus’ five albums.

Both artists’ solo sets will also see them telling in-depth stories behind each of their songs and interacting with the audience, giving fans the unique opportunity to ask each of the artists any questions of their choosing throughout the evening. This is a one-of-a-kind, unique, and interactive show that you will not want to miss.

Of the upcoming tour, Art Alexakis says; “Ever since the early days of Everclear I’ve enjoyed going out and performing solo. It’s a way for me to peel back the layers and get to the core of what I’m trying to communicate through my songwriting. Australia has always been like a second home to me and I’m excited to be coming back solo after our amazing tour this past February. I’m going to be performing the Everclear hits, fan favorites, deep tracks, maybe a song or two from my solo record, and possibly even a cover. I’m stoked to be bringing Brendan from Wheatus with me. They toured with us in the States on our Summerland Tour in 2021 and we became very good friends and big admirers of each other’s work, so it’s a dream come true to be able to tour together again.”
