The Restarts are a tight, three piece, multi-genre punk outfit based in East London. Formed in 1995 they play thrashy, anarcho, power chord punk laced with Ska breaks and pogo inducing basslines, earning them a loyal following of punk lovers of all ages. The Restarts have been hammering their way through the squats of Europe and DIY house shows across North America with reckless abandon.
After playing to sold-out crowds in 2015 with the likes of Rüfüs, Hermitude, Carmada and Little Dragon, and on the back of upcoming UK and European summer festival appearances such as TheSoundYouNeed in Malta, and Ephemere in Tunisia – Kilter have announced a national tour hitting all corners of Australia and New Zealand this September.
Critically acclaimed Australian duo ANGUS & JULIA STONE have today been announced as ‘very special guests’ – on all outdoor shows – opening for the legendary FLEETWOOD MAC during their On With The Show World Tour in Australia and New Zealand this October/November.
Angus & Julia Stone will perform at the Perth, Adelaide, Hunter Valley and Geelong shows in Australia, as well as all New Zealand dates.
Since the release of their latest and self-titled album, produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, Angus and Julia Stone have been playing to sell out audiences across Europe, UK, US and Canada and Australia. In addition, they also recently played at Coachella and the New York City’s Governor’s Ball and before returning to open for Fleetwood Mac, Angus and Julia will continue playing various festivals throughout Europe and North America including Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival and San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival.
Angus and Julia’s #1 album has reached platinum status in Australia, and topped the charts in France and Switzerland. The album has also given the duo a #5 iTunes album in Botswana, Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany. The current single called ‘From The Stalls’ has just been released, and the stunning video can be viewed here.
Also joining the tour at Australian winery shows of Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong on November 7, and the two Hope Estate Winery shows in the Hunter Valley on November 14 and November 15, will be Melbourne’s STONEFIELD who have spent the past two years touring relentlessly. Stonefield have just released their new single ‘Golden Dream’, the first taste of new music from the Findlay sisters that showcases a dreamier, more psychedelic sound than previously heard from the four-piece.
Fleetwood Mac will be touring as a five-piece for the first time since 1998, and the On With The Show World Tour will mark their first series of concert dates in Australia and New Zealand since 2009’s sold-out Unleashed Tour.

Fleetwood Mac’s sold out shows throughout North America have garnered rave reviews.
“The principal emotion during the nearly 2 1/2-hour performance was the joy of having keyboardist McVie back in this group… She brought high harmonies and several songs, including ‘Little Lies,’ ‘You Make Loving Fun’ and the closing ‘Songbird,’ back into the repertoire. Nicks hasn’t sounded this good since the early ’90’s. What a rhythm machine and what an articulate emotional guitarist Buckingham is.” – Minneapolis Star Tribune
“It’s still magical. Between Buckingham’s epic guitar solos, Mick Fleetwood’s massive drumming, John McVie’s strong bass work, Nicks’ patented spins to punctuate the lovely ‘Gypsy’ and Christine McVie’s lush vocals, Fleetwood Mac looked ready to take on what Buckingham has called ‘the next chapter.'” – Newsday
“Fleetwood Mac has the intricacy, elegance and underlying punch of its songs…” – The New York Times.
“With Christine’s songs back in the set, her calm, angular presence back on the stage, there was an undeniable feeling of rejuvenation… Fleetwood and John McVie on bass reminded concert-goers why the band is named for them… They still put a layer of muscle behind everything the band did… Buckingham was ferocious and tireless as lead guitar. This man is a vital musical presence – the soul of the band. Ditto for the vitality of Nicks, its cauldron-stirring spirit… Her showcase songs, ‘Landslide,’ ‘Gold Dust Woman’ and, especially ‘Silver Springs,’ were the night’s highlights.” – Chicago Tribune
This is a tour not be missed.
