The Living End announce ‘The Retrospective Tour’

“I remember thinking that we would never be as successful as Regurgitator and Spiderbait. Those bands were just to me; great bands” Speaking to FL ahead of The Living End’s fifth Big Day Out performance last year Chris Cheney reflected on just how far the ‘little rockabilly band from Melbourne’ had come since forming in 1994. Eighteen years, six albums and countless tours on from their first ever gig TLE have well and truly cemented their reputation as one of Australia’s most successful bands, and to say thank you to all the fans who have stuck by them Chris, Scott and Andy are embarking on ‘The Retrospective’ tour this November.

In an Aussie first the tour will see TLE perform each of their six albums in full, back-to-back at 35 gigs in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. Fans will get one chance to see the album of their choice in these super intimate club shows, with the only exception being for the trio’s debut, self-titled classic – which will get two airings in each city.

A Presale for fans on The Living End mailing list will happen from Monday July 16th 9:00am to Wednesday 18th July at 11:59pm. If you are not yet a member you have until Sunday July 15th to sign up here and receive the presale code.

For those punters dedicated to seeing all six albums the band is also offering The Big Red Ticket :a discounted pass to catch all the shows in your city, available via Oztix. General tickets on sale Thursday 19th July.
