Legendary Aussie outfit Icehouse will release a new live album at the end of the month.
Entitled ‘In Concert’, the double disc album is set to feature “the very best versions” of tracks recorded live during the band’s touring schedule from October last year to February this year.
It comprises 20 songs in all, including the band’s biggest hits; ‘Hey Little Girl’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Electric Blue’ and the revered ‘Great Southern Land’.
“I’m very excited by this release. We’ve been back playing live since 2011 and the ‘In Concert’ recordings show the band at its strongest – it certainly sounds like us,” lead singer Iva Davies said of the new release.
‘In Concert’ will be at your favourite music retailer from Friday August 28.
To celebrate the new album, the band has announced it will again head out on the road for a series of live shows from late October, including a single A Day On The Green event. Further shows will be announced in the months ahead.
Tickets for the concerts (excluding A Day On The Green, the Queensland and Western Australian shows) are on sale from 9am this Wednesday.
