The Living End, Spiderbait, Veruca Salt and Lemonheads team up for Aus tour

Primary tabs

These bands, plus The Fauves, play shows around the country in March.

After the success of recent shows featuring the likes of You Am I, Something For Kate, Ratcat and more, A Day On The Green have thrown together another bill of acts that rose to prominence in the 90s but are still going mighty strong.

Leading the bill this time around are much loved Aussie rock titans The Living End. There aren’t many live music lovers in this country that hasn’t seen this band perform live before and if you’ve seen them recently then you’d be aware that they are still in fine form.

Spiderbait return with their brash and brilliant live show after a sold out run of dates around the country celebrating their Ivy & The Big Apples tour earlier this year.

The international component of the bill is solid. The mighty Veruca Salt, whose 2015 comeback record Ghost Notes proved they have plenty left to give, return to Australia to blow our minds with their infectious brand of grunge.


Evan Dando’s legendary indie-rock band The Lemonheads make a long-awaited return to Australia with Dando’s enviable songbook up their sleeve. Their catalogue is an embarrassment of riches so we expect plenty of gold at these shows.

The almighty grunge lords that are Tarrawanna's Tumbleweed step up to challenge for the loudest and most punishing set these wineries have ever seen. The band are a mainstay in the Australian scene for good reason, their thick, riff-heavy rock'n'roll remains as glorious as ever after all these years.

One of the country’s most underrated and genius indie rock bands, The Fauves, round out the bill.

There are six dates on this run, focused mainly on regional areas. So make all the necessary preparations and make a weekend out of it.
