In April 2012 TOMMY MEMPHIS left Australia to go to Ibiza Spain where he had secured a six month contract to work in the island resort.
With no shortage of work available in NSW & Queensland, and bookers wanting more dates in just about every major club , resort or venue in all of northern NSW and south east Queensland , this seemed like a strange decision. Tour promoters and venue operators were also stunned when he turned his back on several tour offers following his hugely successful “Oh What A Night Tour” in 2011. Why leave all that work behind for a semi “holiday“ in Europe.
Tommy however had other ideas. After an exhausting 2010 /2011 where he completed a mammoth 300 odd shows , Tommy needed break to revitalise himself , write new material and learn new songs and this provided the ideal opportunity to do that. So he packed up the family and they all moved to Ibiza ,Spain. In that time, he set about doing all of the above, getting fit and returned to Australia on October 17th & set foot on Australian soil with a new lease on life.
