8PM Friday, 3rd May 2019

Multi-Instrumentalist Jay Hoad is coming back to Australia after a huge year in 2018, touring throughout Europe, India and the Pacific Islands, performing at some of the biggest festivals on the planet. He will be performing at the Indian Ocean Hotel on Fri May 3rd with special guest Rose Parker, kicking off his Australian Tour which will run throughout every state in Australia over the upcoming months.

Hoad was in Australia at the beginning of 2018 performing at Tamworth Music Festival NSW as well as shows in Victoria, Queensland and the Adelaide Fringe in SA. Last year Hoad performed over 160 shows across 15 countries, and this year is shaping up to be very similar with festival performances scheduled for India and Europe, including him just being announced for Glastonbury Festival 2019 and WOMAD in the UK.

“Looking so forward to the show at the Indian Ocean Hotel, the locals have always been so supportive of the show in this region and have had some really memorable shows here on past Australian Tours. I absolutely love WA and I’ve got a few days of downtime after the show so looking forward to checking out some of the countryside, definitely gonna juice me with good vibes to take around the Australia, Europe etc.”

Hoad also has 2 new albums due for release on March 10th 2019 which he will be launching in conjunction with the Adelaide Fringe Festival finale party before he continues on to launch his new music around the world with his unique show with 17 instruments on stage. Says Jay "I'm very excited about this year's tour, so many cool locations and festivals on the various legs and really excited to bring the new tunes and instruments to the fans around the world. The “Skateboard Guitar” made by my good friend Craig Koen of Port Lincoln has been stealing the show at the festivals around the world, people just can’t believe the sound that comes out of this thing!
