Beddy Rays Announce Middle Earth Mayhem Tour of New Zealand

Beddy Rays Announce Middle Earth Mayhem Tour of New Zealand

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 15th May, 2024 12:00PM

One-upping Peter Jackson's big Lord Of The Rings movie announcement over the weekend, Beddy Rays are embarking on a Middle Earth Mayhem Tour of our fantasy-saturated shores this coming July. Australian ambassadors of heart-swelling punk-pop with hooks for days, the team of Jackson Van Issum (Jacko), Lewis McKenna, Bradley O'Connor and Benjamin Wade's 2022 self-titled debut album was a breakout hit, amassing over ten million streams for standout single 'Sobercoaster' alone and earning nominations for both the ARIA Music Awards and the National Indigenous Music Awards (Jacko is of Woppaburra descent), along with invites to tour with Tones and I, Dune Rats, and Hockey Dad. Repping their Brisbane suburb of Redland Bay (fun fact: Beddy Ray is a spoonerism of "Reddy Bay"), Beddy Rays are clearly fizzing to finally play for Aotearoa fans and find out what real meat pies are all about — give them a big warm welcome at the following dates...

"Kia ora Aotearoa!

The ‘Middle Earth Mayhem Tour’ sees us hopping across the pond for our first ever tour of New Zealand and gee wiz we are so bloody excited. Four shows spread across the North and South Islands should give us a pretty good idea whether the meat pies are really better than in Australia and we have never been more ready to find that out. Very stoked to have some ripper local bands joining us on this run. Grab your tickets now ya legends — we can’t wait to see ya!"
