Pricey’s Thank You North Queensland Tour

A few months after informing listeners he would be hanging up the headphonesTriple M Townsville’s Steve ‘Pricey’ Price has announced a special North Queensland farewell tour. 

Starting on Friday, August 11, Pricey will tour North Queensland with eight live Breakfast broadcasts across the region.

The tour will begin at Riverway before heading through Ingham, Ayr, Bowen and Magnetic Island as well as locations across Townsville. 

“I’m launching out of my ‘little room of magic’ to say a huge THANK YOU, for allowing me into your lives all these Mango Seasons! Happy Days are ahead, see you all on a Friday guys,” Pricey said.

SCA NQ Group Content Director, Daniel Smith, paid tribute to Pricey:

It’s not often an entire city hears one voice for breakfast every weekday for over 30 years, but Townsville is different, and so is that voice because it’s Pricey. He’s a Triple M, Australian radio and North Queensland legend.”

“Everyone at Triple M is involved in this Thank You Tour, and we can’t wait for every Friday to roll around, because you know Pricey will have something very special planned.”

“Pricey won’t be away from the station for long and will be around in 2024 to work on some special projects, which I believe is code for long lunches, which he deserves, along with a little longer in the hammock every morning!”

The OAM recipient shared the news of stepping away from the microphone after 40 mango seasons earlier this year in May. 

Last year he published his 200-page memoir called, The Price of Paradise, which he describes as a love letter to North Queensland.

Definitely changed from the young bloke with the Rod Stewart hair and the denim bib & brace who joined 4TO.

Its amazing the inequity of celebrating outgoing stalwarts within SCA.. when you consider that after 27 years at the helm of a considerably more profitable business such as Central Coast Radio, Sarah King wasn’t even back on air to say goodbye. I have often wondered why that wasn’t handled better, there must have been some level of damage control. She was widely respected by listeners and clients alike, a great performer and personality and was essentially the sound of the coast for the 90s, 00s.
