Still riding high on one of the better album releases of the year in Harlequin Dream, Boy & Bear have announced a 30-date regional tour of Australia.

The Sydneysiders have never left their regional fans behind – some of their better shows over the years have been under big top tents at festivals and paddocks near and far – but this will be by far their most extensive rural tour yet. Dave Hosking and co. will find themselves a long way from Prague, where some of the album’s most powerful songs came together.

Harlequin Dream, the band’s second full-length release, has been there or thereabouts on album of the year polls everywhere. Plus, the title track has a killer sax solo.

Boy & Bear’s tour will include stops at Newcastle Panthers on Saturday May 17 and The Entrance Leagues Club on Sunday May 18.
