The tour comes off the back of I Bet On Sky, the third album to be released by the iconic trio since their unlikely reformation in 2005. And like it's post-2005 predecessors, Farm and Beyond, Sky... is yet another critical and fan-fave and continues the phoenix like rise of these alt-rock superheroes.

Meredith's Golden Plains Festival were the first to offer Dinosaur Jr an invite - a repeat performance following a stand-out show at the same event in 2010.
Dinosaur Jr. was the highlight of the festival. The songs were spot on and despite them playing to a field of drenched rats, the crowd was loving every minute. That was the best fun in the rain I've had in a long time. - UNDERCOVER MARCH 2010
But that's not all, joining Dinosaur Jr for the Sydney show are LA 's supreme power-pop outfit Redd Kross. Star performers at this years Dig it Up! Invitational (alongside Sunnyboys), Redd Kross recently delivered Researching The Blues, their first album in fifteen years, it contains all the punch of earlier classics: Born Innocent, Neurotica and Third Eye with added 'power' as so promised in the genre classification.

Instead of three or four separate albums between 1997 and 2012, we just get one "greatest hits" package for the entire era. - San Diego Reader
The Redd Kross show at Northcote Social Club this year was one of the best shows (of anyone) I've seen in years - Marty Boult (The Age)
But wait, there's more, Royal Headache, Sydney's best exponents of the current garage-punk scene will open the show - at their request! The recent winners of 2012's Jaegermeister's Best Independent release obviously know the real deal when they see it.
"...as you naggingly want to begrudge them for writing overly simplistic, barebones punk that any guitarist could probably do in their sleep, the fact is it's as much about the execution in these instances as the intention. And Royal Headache are well-oiled, deadly, sweaty executioners." - The Vine 2012
It's a three way cage match made in heaven! Or a record store clerks ipod...
