The Whitlams Set 25th Anniversary Tour Dates

The Whitlams will celebrate their 25th anniversary with dates around Australia in May 2018.

The Whitlams, named after Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitman (we’re guessing their will never be a The Abbotts), formed after Tim Freedman met Anthony Hayes (aka Steve Plunder) at the Big Day Out in Sydney in 1992. The Whitlams became a band later that year.

The first album ‘Introducing The Whitlams’ was released in August 1993. ‘Undeniably The Whitlams’ was next in 1995 but it wasn’t until the third album in 1997 ‘Eternal Nightcap’ when the band connected with the masses.

For the next decade The Whitlams had a hit running earning five platinum and one gold award for ‘Eternal Nightcap’, ‘Love This City’, ‘Torch The Moon’ and ‘Little Cloud’.

‘Little Cloud’ in 2006 is the band’s most recent album.
