Prepare for iconic indie rock anthems in the great outdoors when THE LIVING END, SPIDERBAIT, VERUCA SALT, THE LEMONHEADS, TUMBLEWEED and THE FAUVES combine for an almighty a day on the green national tour next February/March.
It’s a bill bursting with bands who were part of the alternative heyday of the 1990s, a period that has left a remarkable legacy on Australian music fans and continues to be held with muchos affection. Between them, these six bands have notched up eight ARIA Awards, received more than 30 ARIA Award nominations, had 12 Top 10 albums and 19 Top 40 hit singles. They’ve played just about every major music festival in the world and worked with a wide range of collaborators – everyone from Kylie Minogue to The Wiggles!
In the live arena their reputations were made through performances marked by energy, passion and verve – qualities that will once again be on display during this tour.
If the resounding success of similar alt-jaunts with Hoodoo Gurus, Sunnyboys, Violent Femmes, Died Pretty and Ratcat in 2015 and last year’s You Am I, Something For Kate, Spiderbait, Jebediah and The Meanies run are anything to go by, this will be a tour to savour!
