THE HOODOO GURUS
LIVE AT FREMANTLE PRISON
with Special Guests END OF FASHION
SUNDAY APRIL 11, 2021
The legendary Hoodoo Gurus. By any measure, one of Australia’s greatest, best loved, most enduring rock bands of all time. Now, they’re coming to Perth to play a special concert at a very special venue, Fremantle Prison.
“What’s My Scene”, “I Want You Back”, “Miss Freelove ‘69”, “Like Wow – Wipeout!”, “1,000 Miles Away”, “Bittersweet”, “My Girl”, “Come Anytime”, “I’m Crackin’ Up” – tracks that represent the unmistakeable sound of the irrepressible Hoodoo Gurus; but those are just a sample from their canon of instantly identifiable songs that have helped provide a soundtrack to Australian and international fans right through the 80’s to today.
The Hoodoo Gurus formed in Sydney on January 1, 1981 to play their first “show” in an inner city lounge room. Founding members Dave Faulkner and Brad Shepherd have been joined along the way by Rick Grossman (’89) and Nik Rieth (’19)
The band’s debut Stoneage Romeos, full of garage punk songs and pop references, was named Australian Debut Album of the Year and was released in America where it stayed at number 1 in the Alternative / College charts for 7 weeks, becoming one of the most played albums for the year on the college network.
Through the span of their international triumphs with sold out tours, 9 gold and platinum records and accolades including being inducted into the Australian Music Hall of Fame, the Gurus have remained one of the most popular and successful musical acts Australia has ever produced.
In spite of the dreadful restrictions that the world experienced and that the music industry in particular suffered in 2020 the Gurus kept busy (and safe!) in the studio and released a number of new singles. (Answered Prayers, Hung Out To Dry, Get Out Of Dodge). These and other tracks presently being recorded will all be released on a new studio album this year.
In fact 2021 is a very special year for the Gurus - 40 years since they first played on that rooftop in Surry Hills on new years eve, 1981!

PRISON TOUR ADD ON (You must also purchase a concert ticket)
Prior to the concert, step inside and join our experienced guides as we explore Fremantle Prison from its convict origins in the 1850’s until its closure as a maximum-security gaol in 1991. Take a visual journey back in time in the Main Cell Block where you can view life as it was for both convicts and prisoners. Discover how time was passed in the yards, while marvelling at original prisoner works of art. With a whipping post, gallows and solitary cells, Fremantle Prison is a monument to a system of punishment that is uncomfortably recent.
Then get ready for the awesome concert, under the stars in the courtyard of the Fremantle Prison.
If you purchase a Prison Tour ticket, you will soon be contacted by one of our team, to advise you of your allocated Prison Tour time in the days prior to the concert. Tour times will be 5:00 pm, 5:15 pm, 5:30 pm, 5:45 pm, or 6:00 pm. You will be advised of your tour group time and we request you arrive no later than 15 minutes prior to your tour time and check in near the front gate entrance. Our staff will assist you from there.
