“It’s definitely a blessing,” Canham said.

“The hits of the past are the sole thing that keeps you going.

"It’s just a reminder of our determination and our staying power.”

He said the anniversary was a testament to band members’ commitment to music.

“I think you need to passionate about [your music], you can’t just do it for a job to pay the bills,” he said.

“You have to take great pride in it. That’s why I’ll always be doing it.”

The group will share the tour with pop rock band 1927.

“I think the good thing is they’re a different genre of music,” Canham said.

“It’s a nice pairing without being competitive in the show.”

1927 was formed in 1987 and went on to dominate the charts with songs That’s When I Think of YouIf I CouldCompulsory Hero and Tell Me A Story - all of which were on its multi-platinum selling debut album ISH.

ISH went on to become the biggest selling album by an Australian artist and won two ARIA awards – best breakthrough artist in the album and single categories.

The bands will perform in a range of different venues on the tour.

“If we’re doing a big concert, it’s fantastic to get the big roar of the crowd,” Canham said.

“In a pub you can connect with the crowd and you get an instant reaction.”

Pseudo Echo and 1927 will perform at Bathurst Panthers on Saturday, June 17 and Orange Ex-Services’ Club on Sunday, June 18.
