Iconic Australian band The Living End is coming to stages around New Zealand this coming February. The nineties rockers will take on New Zealand crowds in Wellington and Auckland.
Their Lower Hutt show will see them take the stage alongside Jimmy Barnes, The Angels, and others. The show Auckland venue The Powerstation will showcase The Living End’s renowned live performance in all its glory.
They’re still at the top of their game and have remained Australia’s “most ferocious” live act by playing an average of 120 shows every year. Blending a range of musical styles including punk, rockabilly and straight-up rock, The Living Edge shows are guaranteed to be both sweaty and anthemic.
The band’s eighth studio album is set to be released on September 28th. Wunderbar was recorded in an icy Berlin winter, and it’s being touted as one of the most conscious and politically vital albums of their career. It’s not all so cerebral, though – it’s also just some damn good rock’n’roll. ‘We’re not trying to re-write Dark Side Of The Moon or anything,” commented lead singer Chris Cheney. “Wunderbar does what The Living End do best, what’s kept hundreds of thousands of fans listening for nearly a quarter of a century: straightforward, heart-pounding, guns blazing rock and roll”.
The Living End haven’t played a New Zealand show since their performance at 2012’s Big Day Out, and Cheney commented he’s looking forward to it. “We’ve played some of our most memorable live shows in New Zealand and the audiences still really appreciate their rock music. We can’t wait to get back there and plug into the Powerstation!”
Tickets will be available from Ticket Master on the 17th of September.
