Croon tunes in a crowd with a beer in your hand — Kate Bush even approves.

Like karaoke? Fond of singing along to well-known songs, especially with a drink in your hand? Happy to belt out a tune in a crowd? Fancy doing something that Kate Bush approves of?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, then it's time to up your crooning game at Pub Choir's next Brisbane date. If you haven't yet tried the boozy sing-along that's all about giving your lungs a workout between sips, there's no better time.

Since early 2017 in Brisbane, Pub Choir has been amassing brew-loving music fans in venues around the Queensland city. The regular event asks its attendees to learn a particular song in three-part harmonies, with talented professionals on hand each time to show everyone the ropes and lead the way. Every evening then culminates in a big boozy singing session, with the event making its way to bigger Brissie locations over the years, as well venturing around the country. Next, it's returning to Fortitude Music Hall from 6pm on Wednesday, August 31.

The vibe: a far more organised version of exactly what happens whenever someone puts 'Wonderwall' or 'Weather With You' on the pub jukebox. And, now that communal singing in public is back after all the various pandemic-related restrictions that've come our way over the past two years, you can expect this tour to feel particularly celebratory, too.

Pub Choir was a big hit during lockdowns, and as life started to return to normal as well; you might've taken part in Couch Choir in 2020, or watched the Australia's Biggest Singalong special on SBS earlier in 2021.

Run by Astrid Jorgensen and Waveney Yasso, its IRL events are mighty popular, too — unsurprisingly — with tickets getting snapped up very quickly each time. So if you're keen to sing and drink with a theatre full of people, you'll want to book asap.

Tickets for the latest Brisbane session go on sale at 10am on Tuesday, July 19.
