This is what you a call a triple headliner. Three of Australia’s greatest rock legends, sharing the stage for the first time for an onslaught tour through the nation’s wineries, all thanks to the legends at a day on the green.
The mammoth line-up sweeping through the Hunter Valley, Mt Cotton, Geelong, Yarra Valley and Barossa Valley this November also includes Perth hard-hitters, Jebediah, and Melbourne punk outfit, The Meanies. This is what the bands had to say:
“To play anywhere, anytime is a gas, but to play with friends in wineries? That’s high falutin’ nuclear blast potential.” – Tim Rogers, You Am I.
“You Am I, Spiderbait, The Meanies… I fell in love with all of these bands as a teen attending the fabled Saturday and Sunday arvo All Ages shows that were a fixture in many Melbourne pubs like The Corner Hotel, The Central Club, The Palace and The HiFi. I was completely in awe. The raw power those bands radiated from the stagespi got my heart racing and my brain buzzing and gave me the kick I needed to get a band together and start making some noise ourselves. Before too long, Something For Kate were joining the line-up at those shows and not long after that we were off on our first proper national tour with none other than Jebediah. Amazing… The only thing more amazing is that here we are in 2016 and all five of these bands (all old mates now) are about to hit the road together for the very first time to take the very concept of the Afternoon All-Ages Show and tear it a new one… can’t wait.” – Paul Dempsey, Something For Kate.
“These shows are always special, and for us particularly so as the line-up includes some of our oldest friends in Australian music… You Am I, Something For Kate, Jebediah and The Meanies (who we played some of our first ever gigs with in Melb). We’ve all played together many times over the years, watched each other’s gigs, partied and laughed, and contemplated the meaning of an artistic existence in this country. But we’ve never all played on the same stage and the same tour at the same time. For me this is beautiful synchronicity and will make for great memories and awesome shows. From me, Janet and Whitt, we’re all stoked to playing a day on the green this year.” – Kram, Spiderbait.
So it’s a triple headliner and a bunch of mates, all just hitting the road and sinking a bunch of the finest grape juice. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 14 June at 10am.
