Tim Freedman has revealed Ella Hooper and Bob Evans will join The Whitlams on their upcoming Last Drinks at the Morrison Hotel tour.
Evans released his compilation ‘Full Circle; in 2018. Ella has the new song ‘To The Bone’ and is working on her next album.
For Tim, it is about dusting off the ‘Love This City’ album 20 years on from its original release. “ I have identified 12 songs and two bonus tracks that I still want to play from “Love this City”, and that will make up the core of the shows this May and June,” he said in a statement. “The other half of the rambunctious long set will wander widely through the other five albums, stopping off for six minutes at Bob Dylan’s ‘Tangled up in Blue’ which it’s time to play again”.
