ISSUE 3, October 2006
Welcome to another edition of The Whitlams’ Newsletter.
The album is out, has gone gold, won over critics and been nominated for an ARIA.
Also the lads are in fine form on the live circuit.
The latest tour dates are at the bottom of this letter
so you can be sure to find them swinging by your way soon.
Tim has also answered some more of your questions so keep them coming in

Dates have been announced for shows with The Queensland Orchestra,
and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra next year. Tickets are not
available to the public yet (TQO early next year, ASO in December) but
if you were keen for great tickets you could enquire about
subscriptions. For example in Adelaide you can subscribe to the
orchestra by buying 3 shows for $150. Herbie Hancock is playing with
them next year (which will be divine), and they are even doing the
music of Queen at one of their non-classical concerts, so there are 3
fine nights you could indulge in. In Queensland you have to attend 4
shows to be a “subscriber”. Shows with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra
at the Opera House, and WASO in Perth will be announced soon.

It looks like Melbourne will miss out unfortunately. Sorry Melbourne.
Melbournites should be careful too because this Friday’s show at The Corner Hotel
has sold out, so you had best come on Thursday night to the Central
Club around the corner in Richmond. This is a smaller room with
better sight lines, and there are standing room tickets still
WHAT THEY’VE BEEN SAYING ABOUT ‘LITTLE CLOUD’…
“A mix of grace, emotion and the occasional nudge, wink and smile.
Throw in a beautiful turn of phrase and The Whitlams have never sounded better.” ****

“That rare beast of an album which is unlike anything out there
