TIM ROGERS MAKES A GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT
Tim Rogers is stripping back for fans, announcing his Gentleman’s Agreement Tour in May and June, with very special guest Louis Macklin from Melbourne band 67 Special.
Tim will complete his new solo album with a cornucopia of musicians just before he goes on the road for these exclusive performances. The Luxury Of Hysteria, the latest addition to Tim’s repertoire, is a concept album that tells of a lack of
conception. On the Gentleman’s Agreement Tour the intimate shows will feature Louis on piano and Tim singing sweet songs old and new for those lucky enough to see this suave duo perform together. It will be a change for Tim, who has recently returned home from a national tour of the USA, where You Am I played over 20 headline shows to thousands of people and even had time to perform at the SXSW Festival. So come and experience Mr. Rogers’ softer side and join the chivalrous pair on an elegant musical journey, which is sure to be a delectable acoustic delight.

HOIST THE JOLLY ROGERS

It's a Pressure Drop. One moment Tim Rogers is talking about the Toots and the Maytals' reggae classic, the next he's living it. "I said when it drops/You're gonna feel it," goes the song. Right now, he can definitely feel it.

Ensconced at a corner table in a West Melbourne pub, You Am I's iconic frontman straightens his back and sharpens his gaze. Somewhere over my right shoulder, five metres away, a couple at the bar has caught his attention. Rogers has spotted some surreptitious glances, divined a series of hushed comments and then heard a snatch of one of his own songs, Heavy Heart, being sung.
