Hero Complex Tour Begins


Sammy J's tour of his award-winning show Hero Complex starts this week, and so the Australian comedian has filmed a series of promotional short video clips featuring the Phantom.

The first of these was published on his Facebook page earlier today; you can watch it here.

The amusing promo features a Phantom who is clearly very devoted to the Old Jungle Saying "Call the Phantom anywhere and he will hear".

It's a light-hearted but very respectful interpretation of our hero, and we at ChronicleChamber can't wait to see more. Sammy has told us that "there'll be one per week", so be sure to be checking his Facebook page regularly for the latest installment!

Sammy is staying very quiet on the true identity of the man in the purple suit in his promos. He has been "unable to confirm or deny" any suggestions, but one suspects it could be someone close to the story. However, he is "pretty excited that we got the white mask working. Take that, Billy Zane and Tom Tyler!"

The music used in the short clip is from The Phantom, a song Sammy wrote for Hero Complex. You can hear the full version (with lyrics) on the latest episode of X-Band: The Phantom Podcast, and the mp3 is downloadable for all Patreons of ChronicleChamber.com - just click this link to pledge and you can be listening to it on your own device in minutes.

It is a phitting coincidence that the Hero Complex tour starts on Friday 17th February, the 81st anniversary of The Phantom appearing in newspapers.

The scenestr website has previewed Hero Complex here, and of course you can read ChronicleChamber's own review of the show as it appeared at the Melbourne Fringe Festival here.

In other news regarding the tour, Sammy J has added a Canberra date to those previously announced.
