Spiderbait – Black Betty 20th Anniversary Tour | Brisbane

Tuesday 13th August 2024

The Fortitude Music Hall

Frontier Touring are delighted to announce iconic Aussie rockers Spiderbait will hit the road this AugustSeptember and October for an extensive run of shows to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their seminal 2004 album, Tonight Alright and standout track, ‘Black Betty’.

I can’t believe it’s 20 years since we released Black Betty and it went to number 1”, said Kram“Since then, the song has become a bit legendary for us and has racked up over a hundred million streams on Spotify and 75 million views on YouTube which is nuts. The whole ride has been so awesome and was so unexpected.

“So to mark this mad anniversary of our biggest hit we are announcing a very special tour to celebrate Black Betty and its 20th anniversary. We’re super pumped and can’t wait to see y’all out there. Come celebrate Black Betty with us!”.  

“Nothing beats seeing live music, I’m really excited to bring everyone along with us and leave them with a big smile. Feels like we’re throwing a party in the machinery shed on the farm like the old days”, added Janet.

“I loved touring this album 20 years ago, we went back to a raw guitar, bass and drums. That approach comes naturally to us”, said Whitt.

Recorded in California, Tonight Alright (2004) leant into the hard rock sound of the early-2000’s. The album debuted at No.14 on the ARIA Album Chart that year and featured the band’s most popular song to date, ‘Black Betty’. Defying age and genre, ‘Black Betty’ arrived fifteen years into Spiderbait’s storied career. The song continued to climb the charts after release, reaching the top of the ARIA Singles Chart two months after its debut and hitting the US Top 40 Rock Chart.

To celebrate Tonight Alright, Spiderbait will issue the album on vinyl for the first time. The 20th Anniversary edition – released on 26 July– arrives on limited edition red vinyl, with alternative artwork, imagery and an alternate version of the single, ‘Tonite’.

Renowned for their dynamic on-stage energy, Spiderbait are without doubt one of the country’s most beloved live acts. Most recently touring Australia in 2022, the trio shows no sign of slowing down, their intensity and camaraderie endearing them to fans right across the globe.

“A celebration of friendship and great song-writing” – Beat

“Spiderbait made a mighty lush sound… They played with an energising, steamrolling pace that never let up” – MusicFeeds

“… a roaring set, high energy, pub/alt-rock, shouting and groovy, Kram, Janet English and Whitt clearly loving every moment” – The Music
