The Tornadoes have recorded their latest video clip to promote their next single due for release in the US in the spring of 2016.  Kilalea State Park (better known as "the Farm" amongst the surfing community) in Shellharbour, NSW was chosen as the picturesque venue for the shoot.  Stay posted to this site for upcoming news on the record release.  In the meantime, the Tornadoes are planning another assault on New Zealand with their unique brand of nostalgic hits.  Locally, you can put dance in your pants each month when the band plays at the Warilla Bowling and Recreation Club in Shellharbou

The passing of former keyboard player Rainer Bruckman two years ago was a huge loss to the Tornadoes' line-up.  Rainer was an integral component of the Tornadoes' hit line-dance album which has been a huge hit worldwide featuring Ghostriders in the Sky, Ghost Train, Waltzing Matilda and, more recently, Crocodile Roll. 

Fans can continue to look forward to dancing to the Tornadoes every month through to the end of the year at the Warilla Bowls and Recreation Club near Shellharbour on the NSW South Coast. 

The band has been a regular attraction at the Club performing for large crowds over a number of years. Now, by popular demand, promoters have secured the Tornadoes at the venue once a month through to the end of 2016.

Make sure you lock in these dates for a great night of dancing to your favourite songs:

June 18
July 16
August 20
September 17
October 22
November 19
December 17

Be there early to secure your table.  The show starts at 8.30pm.

The weather was fine and the crowds were enthralled when the Tornadoes and New Zealand's Shane Cortese took to the stage for 4 shows over 2 days at the Canterbury A & P Show in Christchurch mid November. The Tornadoes opened with their unique brand of rock and roll with Shane joining the band for a segment of nostalgic hits.

It was a sell-out show. The Dapto Leagues Club provided the venue, special guests entertained the audience and the Tornadoes had the dance floor packed to the rafters. Wollongong had not seen a party like this in years. 500 people packed Dapto Leagues Club, south of Sydney, to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the fabulous Tornadoes. Donnie Sutherland made a special guest appearance and Johnny Devlin performed as a special tribute to the band that has toured with him in Australia and New Zealand for the past 4 years. The show even had its own Elvis tribute show.
