The Living End raise the alarm for arena tour (see what I did there?)
Everyone’s favourite Australian alternative rockabilly punk rock band The Living End have announced a tour of the East Coast and Perth taking place over the four Fridays in May. “So what!” I hear you shout. Well, before I continue I’ll ask you to calm down. Calm now? Good. The unusual thing about this tour is that dates in Melbourne, Sydney, and Perth will be taking place in arenas. The tour will be the first time the Melbourne band has headlined an arena tour in Australia and will be the band’s only major city performances in 2009.
Coming along for the ride are Perth grunge act Gyroscope and blog buzz band (BBB?) Tame Impala. All four shows will be all-ages and for something quite unusual for arena shows, tickets will be under $60! The Living End will also be re-releasing White Noise with a bonus CD full of rare never released before tracks, and tickets buyers will be able to add the release onto the ticket price for a nominal fee. How’s that for service.
