After hanging up their instruments in 2004, Australian rock group George are making a comeback.
Lead singer Katie Noonan was six months pregnant at George’s last show in the early 2000s, and has said that after the success of their first album, ‘Polyserena’, there was such pressure to have that success all over again. The group decided to take a hiatus, choosing to focus on their own individual projects.
2016 marks George’s 20th anniversary, and after twelve years break, Noonan says it was time to regroup after being offered a gig at Brisbane venue, The Zoo, earlier this year.
Polyserena was released in 2002, and alongside other favourites, ‘Special Ones’ is still a force to be reckoned with.
Noonan likens performing classics along with ‘Special Ones’ like putting on your comfiest pyjamas.
Talking to The Advertiser, Noonan said, ‘If you had asked me five years ago, I wouldn’t have seen this happening, it just wouldn’t have felt right then.’
If now is the right time for George to come together and tour – we won’t be complaining.
After the show in Brisbane, George decided to turn the small one-off show into a national tour. Some of the shows include performing with Missy Higgins on her orchestral tour, and Melbourne Zoo.
As for Adelaide, we’ll be blessed with George performing at The Gov. A crowd-pleaser, to be sure.
