After several years in the spotlight, the editorial team from The Betoota Advocate will be touring Australia in November and December of 2018.
Clancy Overell and Errol Parker will treat audiences to a no hold barred live show in true Betoota-style, filled with their trademark wit and humour.
The tour opens up in Townsville on Saturday 3 November and will hit every corner of the country including dates in Darwin, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Wollongong, Newcastle, Perth, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide and Canberra before winding up in Sydney at the iconic Sydney Opera House on Saturday 1 December.
Tickets go on sale at 12pm local time on Wednesday 1 August for the thirteen-city tour.
While The Betoota Advocate has long thrived in the print, online, radio and podcast worlds, this will be the first time it is brought to life on stage.
Following mass lay-offs in Australian media and the merger of Channel 9 and Fairfax, the newspaper’s editors will visit each corner of the country explaining how, in this day and age, they have managed to keep a newspaper in the black.
“This is the first of its kind, it’s the first time The Advocate has been invited to spearhead such a project.
“Since our transition into digital media in 2014, we’ve garnered this cult-like following around the country and we felt it time to head out on the road to share the story with everyone,” Overell said.
“It should be good, I’m looking forward to it,” Parker added.
In a brutally honest 90-minute presentation, Overell and Parker – along with a very special guest – will take the audience on a journey through the town of Betoota; exploring the origins of The Advocate and explaining how to run a media empire of this size in 2018.
Nationally known and loved for its jocular headlines and witty take on the zeitgeist of modern Australia, The Betoota Advocate has developed a widespread and fiercely loyal readership since its inception.
Growing from humble beginnings, The Betoota Advocate is increasingly becoming one of Australia’s most widely read news publications.
It boasts 7 million+ web hits and over 19 million engagements across social media per month; and has teamed up with the likes of Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull and Sir Richard Branson.
Vowing to “continue to report real and apolitical news” and never allow their organisation to be “hijacked by any of the family news dynasties”, The Betoota Advocate has won over disenchanted millennials and attracted attention internationally with its unique headlines.
