Rock Legends Join Forces for a day on the green tour

Hoodoo Gurus, Sunnyboys and the Violent Femmes are joining forces for a massive a day on the green tour in March.

Taking in wineries in five states, the massive shows will also feature performances by Died Pretty (on their first tour in more than seven years) and Ratcat (excluding Perth).

The three headliners were indie rock trailblazers in the ’80s, and went on to enjoy major mainstream success.

Hoodoo Gurus frontman Dave Faulkner says, “We go way back. Sunnyboys were the first band I fell in love with when I moved to Sydney from Perth. I would play their first EP over and over again on the jukebox at French’s Tavern in Oxford Street, Darlinghurst.

“Hoodoo Gurus formed around that same time and the Sunnyboys helped us out with some choice support slots. Flash forward a couple of years: Hoodoo Gurus have a record contract and we happen to be on the same label as the Violent Femmes, the Femmes even taking the place of The Gurus at our Stoneage Romeos launch after I contracted laryngitis – how cool was that?!”

Tickets go on sale 10am Friday 23 October. You can find full transport, accommodation and event information at the official a day on the green site. Check out the full dates below.
