Australian Tour Dates For You Me Everybody.
You Me Everybody, New Zealand Bluegrass trailblazers are crossing the ditch to headline their first Australian Tour. The trans Tasman treck comes on the back of a National tour where the group met fans who came to their music following their appearance on Netflix’s Sweet Tooth. Streams of their song Stranger has seen their audience grow around the world and now Australian fans will get a chance to see the group perform live.
The tour begins with an appearance at the Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival and continues down the inner East Coast towards Tumbarumba and then into Canberra before a show in Melbourne and then ending at Mountaingrass Bluegrass festival in Beechworth.
Tickets for You Me Everybody concerts are available here.
Originally formed by brothers Laurence and Sam Frangos-Rhodes, You, Me, Everybody pushes the boundaries of what New Zealand knows of a genre that was formed on tradition and rules to create progressive bluegrass. While upbeat bangers are part of their repertoire, this is no pub band, but rather a collection of the best of New Zealand’s acoustic instrumentalists that are searching for a new, dynamic sound that showcases the best of Americana in Aotearoa.

About You Me Everybody:
Referred to as New Zealand’s first Bluegrass Supergroup, the excitement around their inception saw them play their first live gig as openers for The Felice Brothers as part of the Americana fest at Auckland’s Tuning Fork. They recorded their EP a week later and in February 2020, You, Me, Everybody released their self-titled debut EP, which reached number 13 in the New Zealand album charts. This debut also saw them named as finalists for Best NZ Folk Artist, 2021 in the Aotearoa Music Awards.
Their first full length album, Southern Sky, was released in January 2021, which again debuted in the top 20 of the NZ album charts. Now in 2023 they have gained a new worldwide audience after featuring in Netflix’s Sweet Tooth. The appearance of the band playing Stranger has seen new fans show up to their recent New Zealand tour singing along to every song.
