The Living End, Spiderbait, Veruca Salt + More Confirm Joint Tour This Summer

Some legendary rock gods are coming together next February/March 2018 for a rock marathon.

a day on the green has convinced The Living End, Spiderbait, Veruca Salt, The Lemonheads, Tumbleweed and The Fauves to join forces and throw down an epic run of winery shows across the country – tbh, it wouldn’t have been hard to agree to.

Aussie legends The Living End are one of the country’s most anthemic rock bands. Their 1998 self-titled debut album hit number one on the ARIA chart, featuring 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.

“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!” said The Living End’s Chris Cheney.

Spiderbait are stoked to be doing another winery lap, and ‘Black Betty’ never gets old, so it’s a win all round. US alt-rock icons Veruca Salt hit meteoric rise in the 90s with ‘Seether’. After breaking up in 1998, the original line-up – Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Jim Shapiro and Steve Lack – re-formed in 2013 and were warmly welcomed back on stage. In 2015 they released their fifth studio album Ghost Notes, the first to feature the band’s original line-up since 1997’s Eight Arms To Hold You. hereThe band will also perform two special indoor shows in Sydney and Melbourne in March, all ticket info.

The tour includes performances by rock royalty The Lemonheads, stoner-rock lords Tumbleweed and satire faves The Fauves making it a throwback of the ages. Hitting up the usual haunts from Victoria’s Mt Duneed Estate to Sirromet Wines in Mt Cotton, QLD and Josef Chromy Wines just out of Launceston – check out the full rundown and ticketing info here.
