Get Up & Dance Tour
Boy & Bear have commenced the Get Up & Dance tour, playing two sold out shows in Melbourne and an Adelaide performance. The Brisbane evening, both Sydney and the Albany shows are all SOLD OUT, as well as both NZ shows! They will continue to tour, with special guests Holy Holy, until the end of the month before they head back over to the northern hemisphere for more international tours!
It definitely has been a big year for the band but they will be finishing it with a bang here in Australia at NSW’s newest boutique festival, Lost Paradise.

Boy & Bear Noisetrade Session
Boy & Bear spent much of July travelling and performing around the US. While the band was in Nashville, they recorded a live Eastside Manor Session for Noisetrade.

OLD TOWN BLUES video
Since the release of their #1 sophomore album Harlequin Dream, Boy & Bear have been touring relentlessly around the world, their 86 performances so far this year proving just how high the demand for their live show has become.
They’ve built up a healthy amount of frequent flyer points, having travelled through the US, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Copenhagen, Germany, Netherlands and France (to mention a few) to play sold out shows. Taking care not to neglect their loyal Australian fans, Boy & Bear have ensured they return to their motherland for not one, but two national tours, with their massive 30-date regional tour taking place earlier this year.
Australian fans will once more get their fix of Boy & Bear when the band return for the Get Up & Dance Tour in September, before hitting the tarmac again for further US/CAN and UK/EU dates that will keep them in the spotlight from October right through to December.
Boy & Bear recently performed on the Conan O’Brien Show in the States on July 23, which is no surprise given the local love for them. In the US, Southern Sun was the #2 most added track on release, the 5th most added to College Radio and the #1 most added track to non-commercial radio. The single spent 16-weeks in the Top 100 AAA, with five consecutive weeks in the Top 5. The album, Harlequin Dream, spent 11 consecutive weeks in the Billboard Heatseakers chart.
Having spent so much time travelling this year, Boy & Bear have compiled footage taken on the road to feature in the newest video for OLD TOWN BLUES, giving a small glimpse of their worldwide adventure.
Boy & Bear On The Road Again
Boy & Bear recently returned to Australia for a quick break after their US/CAN tour and have once again hit the road for their summer European festival tour.
The boys have been doing extremely well overseas, even scoring themselves a performance spot on Conon O’Brian in the States. Check out the video below:
Following their current EU tour, the band will be back on Australian shores for their highly anticipated Get Up & Dance national tour, including two dates in NZ. Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane shows have already sold out, with second shows being announced due to popular demand. Tickets available here.
Boy & Bear Announce NZ Dates
They’ve toured the world twice over since the release of their sophomore album Harlequin Dream, but this September will mark Boy & Bear’s first New Zealand dates in over two years.
Since the release of their second record, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart and has reached Gold sales in Australia, Boy & Bear have spent most of their time on the road bringing their live set to audiences near and far. Now it’s NZ’s turn!
The band have plenty of catching up to do with New Zealand audiences, with two full-length albums now under their belts and an internationally acclaimed live performance honed to perfection.
Boy & Bear have been eager to return to the country following their brief visit early last year, where Queenstown provided the stunning backdrop for the video of Harlequin Dream’s debut single ‘Southern Sun’, which the NZ Herald called “a guitar-driven, Tom Petty-esque anthem which should be blasted loud.” Watch the video here.
An extensive tour schedule spanning until the end of the year means this is the only opportunity for New Zealand fans to catch Boy & Bear live in 2014. The band have a track record for selling out tours, so be sure to secure tickets fast!
