Mental As Anything Announces Concert Dates

Aussie alt. rock/pop group Mental As Anything first took the stage on August 16, 1977 (the night Elvis Presley died). The line-up has changed and they had a bit of a hiatus. But the group has stayed together, and released over a dozen albums, most Plucked, which was released last November. It gives an acoustic "gentle and thoughtful reworking" to some of Mental As Anything's greatest hits.

The group's now announced some concert dates, reportedly their first in years. At this point, only a few "intimate" dates have been announced, all in Australia. More might be in the works... or might not...

Mental As Anything Tour Dates:

October 5 Melbourne - Manchester Lane
October 6 South Morang - Plenty Ranges Function Centre
October 7 St. Andrews - St Andrews Hotel

Last week, Australia issued a set of rock and roll poster postage stamps. Mental As Anything is among the groups featured on the new stamps.
