Your favourite swag of vagabonds — that’d be Thundamentals — are on the road with The Herd for the next month in support of their ‘Thousand Lives’ tour. Tuka gives the low down on the first week of touring.
It's gonna be a pretty special line of shows for us seeing as the first real set we ever played was with The Herd in the Blue Mountains years ago, so in a lot of ways it feels somewhat sentimental.
The first leg definitely started out on the right foot, a brilliant way to kick off the tour if I do say so myself (bad pun intended). Both Sydney and Newcastle shows were sold out.
The Sydney show was the first time we'd played a set in a while so I was a tad nervous... I tend to piss like ten times before I play when I'm not nervous so if you can imagine I had a fairly weak bladder that night.
However, being the hometown gig the crowd was insane, really nice vibe in room, everyone seemed super amped by the time we came on and by the time we got off stage the place was heaving.
Certainly a bucket list moment sharing the stage with The Herd for their last song as well.
Mad props to everyone who came down and The Herd for having us. Brisbane’s gunna get it!
Stay tuned for next week's next tour diary and video instalment from the Thundas.
Thundamentals, along with Sky'High, join The Herd at The Zoo Friday April 27 and the Great Northern Saturday April 28.
