The Seekers Are Back On The Road!

At a media conference in Melbourne today, The Seekers announce that they will resume their Golden Jubilee Tour of Australia, following Judith Durham’s sudden illness in May.

Judith was admitted to hospital after the first Melbourne show on May 14 and diagnosed with a cerebral hemorrhage.  After three months of rehabilitation, Judith was given the green light by her doctors to rejoin Athol, Keith and Bruce to complete the tour, which celebrates their 50th year.

The first ten shows, performed in April/May this year, were totally sold out and received outstanding reviews.

Judith said today, “I’m thrilled that my doctors have given me the green light to return to the stage.  I’m so much looking forward to joining the boys again on tour, and singing for you all.”

The Seekers’ Australian tour has been rescheduled for November, and their UK tour – which was to have started this month, has been rescheduled for April/May next year.

The new Australian concerts are:

  • November 2 and 3, Perth, Riverside Theatre
