About Eskimo Joe
Frontier Touring are stoked to announce 35x time ARIA nominees and 11x time ARIA Award-winning trio Eskimo Joe will return to the stage for seven theatre performances across Australia For the very first time, the band will be playing their iconic albums Black Fingernails Red Wine (2006) and A Song Is A City (2004) back-to-back, each in their entirety… with a few surprises up their sleeve too.
Says lead singer Kav Temperley:
“We are super excited to announce that we’ll be hitting the road in 2022 and playing our albums A Song Is A City and Black Fingernails, Red Wine in full, back-to-back.
We’ve had this planned for quite some time but were unable to go ahead due to Covid outbreaks and restrictions. So, in the interest of wanting to give our fans something to look forward to after this crazy year we’ve just had, we’re announcing our 2022 tour now. This gives us a chance to plan a really spectacular show!
Some of these songs have never been played live before, but every song on each of these albums means so much to us and signifies such an important time in our lives and our career as a band. We can’t wait to relive them all with you.”
Today’s announcement coincides with the release of the band’s brand new single, ‘99 Ways’ (out now via Ditto), a track dubbed by Temperley “an isolation love song”. Live on stage in early 2022, fans can expect a show featuring A Song Is A City hits such as ‘From The Sea’, ‘Smoke’, ‘Older Than You’, ‘Life Is Better With You’, as well as belters from Black Fingernails, Red Wine, such as the title track, ‘Sarah’, ‘New York’, ‘Breaking Up’, ‘London Bombs’ and many more!
‘99 Ways’ is the latest single from the acclaimed trio, and the first taste in new music for some time – keep an eye out for the new video, dropping 22 February. In 2020, Eskimo Joe released ‘Say Something’, their first single since 2013, the track reaching #1 Most Played on Triple M and 11th Most Played song on the Australian Airplay chart.
In response to the release of ‘Say Something’ Rolling Stone AU wrote, “Their new single sees them refreshed and more powerful than ever, with Kav Temperley describing the song as ‘a call to act with humanity, without prejudice or violence towards each other or the planet’”. The band also performed a special version of ‘Say Something’ on ABC TV’s The Sound, recorded live from Perth Concert Hall and Port Melbourne.
Fans can sign up to the Eskimo Joe mailing list no later than midnight Monday 15 February in order to access an Artist Pre-sale on Tuesday 16 February (starts 1pm AEDT). Frontier Touring members can also access the Frontier Presale (same time, see below info).

Along with a significant number of Australian tours, the band have received global acclaim from fans and critics alike, having played across the United States, Canada, Europe and Korea.
In addition, Frontier Touring are excited to announce that Aussie rock legend and frontwoman for the multi-ARIA Award nominated band Magic Dirt, Adalita, will join Eskimo Joe as a solo special guest on their six date Black Fingernails Red Wine In The City 2022 tour this September and October.
“I’m super excited and honoured to be joining Eskimo Joe on the road to help celebrate their landmark records!” Adalita
Adalita will fire up the stage as the opening act for each show across the Black Fingernails Red Wine In The City 2022 tour,
‘It’s very exciting to have Adalita join our BFRWITC tour. From Magic Dirt to her solo career and everything in between we’ve known Adalita for well over 2 decades now. It’s an absolute dream and a pleasure to welcome her on the tour. To get to watch her play every night will be awesome, welcome to the tour Adalita!’ Eskimo Joe
ADALITA began her career as the frontwoman of Australian rock band, Magic Dirt, who are best known for their ARIA Chart topping albums Friends in Danger (1996), What Are Rockstars Doing Today (2000), Tough Love (2003), and Snow White (2005). She became the first female artist to make the cover of Australian Guitar Magazine in 2005 and further cemented herself as an Australian rock ‘n’ roll icon after going solo in 2011, subsequently winning Best Independent Release at the 2011 AIR Awards and Best Female at the 2013 Music Victoria Awards.
Her solo success doesn’t stop there, with multiple nominations at the AIR Awards, the National Live Music Awards, the Australian Music Prize, and the ARIA Awards, where her debut album Adalita (2011) and her sophomore record All Day Venus (2014) won her nominations for Best Female Artist. Her self-titled record peaked in the Australian music charts at #23 and features singles ‘Hot Air’, ‘The Repairer’ and ‘Fool Around’, while All Day Venus landed at #30 with the Sydney Morning Herald labelling it ‘anthemic, emotional and tailor-made for humming around stadiums.’
Adalita is currently working on her highly anticipated third studio album and has also been back touring with the hugely successful Magic Dirt, who have been welcomed back with rapturous ovations and coveted reviews.
‘Adalita has to be one of the best female front women in Australia!! With a Hendrix like vibe as she plays facing her amp, Adalita had the crowd swooning and singing all at once.’ – HEAR2ZEN MAGAZINE
