Event Details

West Australian garage rock legends The Stems are making a triumphant return to the live stage for a series of dates in August 2024.Having last toured in 2019, original members, Dom Mariani, Julian Matthews, and Dave Shaw are set to be joined by acclaimed guitaristAshley Naylor (Even/Paul Kelly/The Church). Together, they will celebrate four decades since their inaugural live performance in 1984 at the Old Civic Theatre in Inglewood, Western Australia, where they marked their auspicious debut supporting iconic Australian bands, The Saints and The Triffids. The Stems attained their own legendary status in the Australian and International music scene–roaring out of Perth with a sound and style that definitively captured the spirit and enthusiasm of sixties garage music-lurching fuzz-tone guitars, brooding organ, solid gold garage-punk, and primo power pop! The Stems not only created a distinctive sonic identity but also penned unforgettable songs while delivering electrifying live performances.In the late '80s, The Stems achieved acclaim with a series of singles and EPs and the timeless'At First Sight–Violet are Blue' LP in 1987. The group disbanded in late 1987 and made a significant comeback in 2003, playing to sold-out crowds nationwide. Since then, they have continued to tour regularly in front of audiences across Australia, Europe, Japan, and theUnited States. 2023 saw the Stems release some out-of-print tracks on a Vinyl album, “Mushroom Soup”, which promptly rocketed to number 3 on the national ARIA charts!To Commemorate the tour The Stems will be releasing a brand new single, and a Live LP captured during an incendiary concert from the last tour. Join The Stems on this historic occasion as they bring their iconic sound and energy back to the stage, marking 40 years of garage rock glory.
