The Hi-Fi - Sydney, NSW
ON SALE THURSDAY 19 JULY. + Area 7. THE LIVING END are thrilled to announce that they will embark on an unique and ambitious tour this year. THE RETROSPECTIVE TOUR will see Australia's legendary rock'n'roll sons play each of their six albums IN FULL, back-to-back, start to finish, across 35 shows in five capital cities.
This will be the very FIRST TIME each album has been performed live from start to finish, and the feat will almost certainly be the first time any Australian band has undertaken such an inspired tour. The Retrospective Tour will not take in stadium-sized venues either. Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane and of course Melbourne will get seven shows across seven nights in intimate club venues, each with a limited capacity. Seven shows and only six albums you ask? Well, eponymous Australian classic album 'The Living End' will get two airings in each city.
The idea of The Retrospective Tour is to give a big TLE-style 'THANK YOU' to all those fans who have bought the albums, come to shows, shown their support and been intensely loyal to the band over the past 15 years. There is something there for everybody, whether you are a die-hard fan of the seminal 'The Living End' album or fell prey to the hard-rockin' riffage presented on The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating, or something in between. This will be the fans only chance to watch TLE pull out their most memorable, fiery live shows, performing some never-played-before favourites alongside career classics.
When The Retrospective Tour rolls into Sydney in the last week of November the band will be joined by Melbourne indie rock stalwarts EVEN for three consecutive nights, Sydney locals CABINS will take support duties for two shows and AREA 7 will once again join TLE for both performances of their debut self titled album. Spinning tunes each night during the Sydney stint will be 2manyPJs more commonly known as PHIL JAMIESON from GRINSPOON.
