Carlo Salinitri said: “Australia we are back, and we are bringing you all our biggest and best show yet! Our Nonna would be proud! Get ready, it’s coming.”

Andrew Manfre said “It’s been great to tour internationally but it’s always super special launching a brand-new show in our homeland, Australia. This is some of our best work yet!”

Joe Salinitri said “We are going above and beyond to make sure this is not just a comedy show but a memorable comedy event for the people. It’s going to be a comedy rock concert.”

The Home Made tour comes off the back of an international tour earlier this year which took the boys global with stops in London, New York, LA, Toronto and beyond. This followed their wildly successful 2022 Australian tour which saw an Encore run of shows added due to overwhelming demand with over 100,000 tickets sold around the country, as well as a broken house record at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena after selling it out three times. In November 2023, they hosted the 11th edition of comedy extravaganza Just for Laughs in Sydney.

This year, the boys are stepping things up a notch with their all-new Home Made tour which is shaping up to be HUGE and like nothing you’ve ever seen from them before. Tickets are expected to sell fast, so round up the gang and don’t miss it!
