'Thirsty Merc' present their 'Take Me Back tour', celebrating 15 years, hitting Adelaide on Thursday December 14th at The Village Hotel, Friday December 15th at The Norwood Hotel and Saturday December 16th at Fowler's Live. Thirsty Merc formed in 2002 and currently features members Rai Thistlethwayte on vocals, piano & guitar, Phil Stack on bass and Matt Smith on guitar. The band's previous members included Matthew Baker, Karl Robertson and Sean Carey.
In 2015 Thirsty Merc toured with their Grind Tour promoting 'Shifting Gears' and now they're back with a brand new show. Take Me Back marks 15 years that fans have fallen in love with their music. The tour will feature the songs that made them famous along with some that have never been performed live before, but are songs that marked their journey.
Lead Singer Raj Thistlethwayte said "It's thanks to the fans that we're still here, loving life and music, 15 years later and this tour is a big "thank you" to everyone who's sung along with us over the years, as well as a great opportunity to dust off some songs we've never included in our shows".
Thirsty Merc formed in 2002 but it wasn't until 2004 that they got their big break with 'Someday Someday' and 'In The Summertime'. Two more studio albums followed with 'Slideshows' in 2007 and Mousetrap Heart in 2010. In 2015 'Shifting Gears' was released and then began the 18 month tour that brought them to Adelaide last year.
The Take Me Back tour will feature all your favourite songs including '20 Good Reasons', 'In The Summertime', 'Someday Someday', 'Mousetrap Heart', 'Those Eyes', 'The Good Life', 'Understanding Love', 'Touch and Go', 'I Fall in Love', 'The Grind' and more.
