Two of Australia’s much loved bands will make their way to Dubbo later this year for a one-night-only rocking show.

1927 and Pseudo Echo’s Celebration Tour will take them across the country and they will play at the Dubbo RSL on Friday, June 16.

The band 1927 was formed in 1987 and went on dominate charts with songs such as That’s When I Think Of You, If I Could, Compulsory Hero and Tell Me A Story – all of which were on the multi-platinum selling debut album ISH.

We’ll both be playing as many songs as we think the people would want to hear, plus some new songs as well.

Eric Weideman, 1927 singer.

Pseudo Echo was one of the nation’s biggest bands in the 1980’s, and recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of Funky Town, which held the number one spot in Australia for a record 12 weeks.

Its debut album Autumnal Park, which was released in 1984, featured the hit singles Listening and A Beat For You, followed in 1985 with Love an adventure and the singles Don’t Go, Love An Adventure, Living in a Dream.

No Australian music fan can ignore or deny the impact of these two bands on the nation’s music psyche.

Between them they share a catalogue of songs that are still heard on Australian radio and have accumulated awards and accolades along the way.

1927 singer Eric Weideman said the collaboration with Pseudo Echo began last year with a tour around the country.

He said it was so successful the first time, that they decided to hit the road again in 2017 and play at venues that they had earlier missed.

“We’ll both be playing as many songs as we think the people would want to hear, plus some new songs as well,” Mr Weideman said.

He said 1927 had been touring solidly since 2009 with an array of bands, but what made this collaboration with Pseudo Echo such a great combination was that they were very different with their musical style.

Mr Weideman said he has visited Dubbo before on previous tours and said audiences can expect a great show.

“We’ve been doing this (touring) for a while … and been playing for a long time. So people can expect a great show,” Mr Weideman said.

Pseudo Echo member Brian Canham said the band’s show was a very authentic reproduction of their 80’s performances.
