Bringing their unique bluegrass sound to Australia and New Zealand for the first time in January 2023, The Dead South have added a Tasmanian show to their upcoming One For The Road Tour.
The Canadian four-piece band will play Hobart’s Odeon Theatre on Saturday, January 21, 2023.
The Dead South first announced their tour back in June, with headline shows in Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane, and Melbourne before heading across the ditch to Auckland. After selling out all dates in record time, they announced a second show in Melbourne, as well as upgraded venues in Brisbane, Sydney, and Newcastle due to overwhelming demand.
Tickets for all shows are on sale now. For complete tour and ticket information, visit livenation.com.au.
With banjo, mandolin, cello and guitar, The Dead South certainly look the part of bluegrass traditionalists. But, as outsiders to the bluegrass world by circumstances of geography, they’re from the Canadian prairies, and by influences, equal parts fingerpicking and punk, there are few comparisons to be made for the four-piece acoustic band.

A brotherhood first and foremost, The Dead South formed at university in 2012 and forged on the road. Their progressive, tightly constructed approach to acoustic music that favours intricate solos and harmonies has brought two JUNO Awards for ‘Traditional Album of the Year’, the most recent for the Muscle Shoals-made Sugar & Joy (2019). They followed up in 2020 with Served Live, a double live album that celebrated and supported the live music industry in a time of crisis.
The Dead South’s most recent releases are Easy Listening For Jerks, Parts 1 + 2, two companion EPs which explore traditional folk and modern rock anthems alike in The Dead South’s signature boundary-pushing acoustic approach. New videos from the EPs, You Are My Sunshine and our previous Song of the Day, People Are Strange have garnered over 10 million views.
