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.
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.
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.
The Living End have earnt their enviable standing as one of the most compelling and captivating bands in Australian rock history. Their 1998 self-titled debut album hit number one on the ARIA chart, spawning singalong anthems ‘Prisoner Of Society’, ‘All Torn Down’, ‘Second Solution’, ‘West End Riot’ and ‘Save The Day’, beginning a chart domination that continued with ‘Roll On’, ‘Pictures In The Mirror’, ‘What’s On Your Radio’, ‘Wake Up’ and ‘White Noise’, to name but a few. Twenty years on they continue to be a force to be reckoned with, with last year’s ‘Shift’ becoming their seventh ARIA Top 10 album. Having just completed a huge US tour, their live shows continue to excite fans worldwide.
The Living End’s Chris Cheney said. “Check it out folks, grab the esky and your picnic blanket because we are excited to announce we’re playing a day on the green! After spending a huge chunk of this past year touring internationally we can’t wait to play shows in our own beautiful Australian backyard. As anyone who’s ever gone to a day on the green knows, they’re always unique gigs but this one is extra special. The line-up is killer! We’ll be joined by Spiderbait, Veruca Salt, The Lemonheads, Tumbleweed and The Fauves … Hot damn! Get on it!”
