Following the colossal success of supporting Bellowhead on their comeback tour in 2022, Sam Sweeney is taking to the road to play his genre-defying landmark album, Escape That, with his all-star band.

Combining Sam's love for traditional sounds with strong pop hooks and aesthetics, this music is unashamed in its wide pool of influences.

Featuring Louis Campbell on electric guitar, Ben Nicholls on double bass, and Stuart McCallum on acoustic guitar, this will be a gig you don't want to miss.
