Almost 10 years ago to the day Brian King and Dave Prowse released their debut EP under the Japandroids banner, fans all over the world are still craving a glimpse of the pair’s live spectacle. In a weeks time, the pair will play their first show of their extended Australian stopover, providing a more fleshed out tour compared to their brief visit late last year. With their 2017 release Near To The Wild Heart of Life receiving the nod from fans all over the world (including this STV writer), it’s no surprise the forthcoming tour is one of the most anticipated rock outings this winter.

To pump you up even more for the tour, a swagger of Aus rock talent has been announced to raise the curtain on the seven-date tour. Check out below who is jumping onboard in your city (sorry NZ, yours haven’t been announced yet):
