Aussie alternative rock icons Grinspoon have announced their return to the stage with a massive national tour to celebrate 20 years since the release of their generation-soundtracking debut album, Guide To Better Living.
The fourpiece will tackle their mammoth 27-date national tour from late June onwards, playing to fans in majors cities and touching down in a number of regional centres including Townsville, Ipswich and of course, a hometown show in Lismore on September 1. The shows will see the group burst out the debut album cover-to-cover as well as throwing in a handful of their favourite tunes from proceeding releases, just for good measure.
The tour will be supported by Wollongong duo Hockey Dad, who have recently been flying the flag over at SXSW.
Not stopping there the group is also set to release a brand spankin’ reissue of the debut which will see the original release expanded into a 49 track trip down memory lane featuring live tracks (including an unreleased 13-track performance from the Falls Festival of 1997) and other rare bits and pieces.
Telstra is offering their customers an exclusive Telstra Thanks 48-hour pre-sale on most shows from 9am Wednesday 5 April 2017. For more details regarding the pre-sale, please visit www.telstra.com/music.
Velocity Frequent Flyer is offering a pre-sale window for a limited time to Velocity members, available via Velocity Live from 11am Friday 7 April 2017 until 8am Monday 10 April 2017.
The general public will have the opportunity to purchase tickets from 9am Monday 10 April 2017.
