Spiderbait To Mark 20th Anniversary of ‘Black Betty’ With Australian Tour

by Paul Cashmere on May 15, 2024

in News

Spiderbait have announced their Black Betty Anniversary tour which gets underway 13 August in Brisbane.

“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”.

The tour will also be preceded by a vinyl reissue of the ‘Tonight, Alright’ album on 26 July.

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.
