Lightning is about to crash in Australia, with LIVE officially bringing their reunited OG lineup to our shores for a tour in 2017 with some epic international support acts to boot.
Your m8s Ed Kowalczyk (vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (guitar), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums) are back together and heading down under for the first time in over a decade, and they’ll be throwing copper-loads of fist-pumping hits like ‘The Dolphins Cry’, ‘I Alone’, ‘Heaven’, ‘All Over You’ and more at our eager earholes.
And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, they’ll be bringing two other US noughties rock hitmakers along for the ride — Lifehouse (who are bound to leave fans ~hanging by a moment~) and The Calling.
The blockbuster triple bill will be playing just three shows down under with stops announced in Brisbane, Melbourne and the Hunter Valley for November.
“The band couldn’t be more excited to return to Australia and celebrate our reunion,” says Ed Kowalczyk.
“We are having the time of our lives and can’t wait to share this experience with our fans down under. It’s gonna be amazing!”
2017 also marks the 25th anniversary of LIVE’s debut album Mental Jewelry, which will be toasted with reissues on Coloured Vinyl, Standard Vinyl, Cassette and the Deluxe Edition on a two-CD set dropping on 11th August.
