The Waifs announce regional tour to close out 2017
For 25 years Western Australian folk heroes The Waifs have been among our country’s most treasured bands.
Through eight studio albums and probably over a thousand great live shows, this band has proven to be an enduring force as both songwriters and performers and a number of their songs rank as some of the most beloved to come from our country in the past couple of decades.
The Waifs have spent a good deal of 2017 both celebrating their 25th anniversary and also supporting the release of their latest album Ironbark, which debuted at number one in the ARIA charts. They’re closing out the year in similar fashion, getting back on the road – this time for a string of regional dates around the country.

It’s no surprise to see the always itinerant band getting a few regions that don’t always get as much attention from touring artists as they should. The Waifs consider themselves a band for all people and they’re not shy to hit the road a little harder if it means spreading their songs a little further.
Alongside the dates in places like Toowoomba, Grafton and Albany, are intimate shows in Adelaide, Sydney and Perth, all of which are pretty small, so you’d better rush to grab your tickets if you want to witness those ones.
Speaking of tickets, they’re on sale from 9am Thursday 26 October.
