At the end of the tour Birdz posted to his Facebook page, “First national tour was such a mad (and crazy) experience, feeling blessed to have been able to share it with a legendary crew too. Big ups to everyone involved and especially the original b.c’s aka The Funkoars for having us. Madness.”

 

Culture blog Blank Gold Coast said of Birdz’s set at this beach side show:

“With MC Marz on decks, he talks and raps his way through ‘Nations’ and

Supabrotha’. Then has us chanting, ‘I say red, black. You say yella. Red. Black. Yella.’ In ‘We Still Strive’ he tells, ‘In 1981 I was born. In the belly of the beast’. He grew up Catholic but felt like a black Superman. ‘Walk with the spirit. Like super-fly’.”
