D.R.I. and HIRAX have added an Adelaide show to their April 2020 tour, so now they're doing all mainland capitals. I haven't seen D.R.I. before but I have seen HIRAX, back in L.A. in 1986, and they went off like a frog in a sock, so it should be an action packed show.
V.I.P. meet and greet here.
TYR are no longer playing the Sydney show but read on below.
As the title suggests this has been postponed. See full press release below.
Megadeth bassist DAVID ELLEFSON will bring his band here in May, featuring ex-MEGADETH guitarist CHRIS POLAND. Official press release (below) doesn't really tell all if you haven't been following the way Mr. Ellefson does things and that is that Melbourne band, TRIGGER, will be his backing band, in much the same way that Ripper Owens toured some years ago. Should be cool. Check it all out below.
Big news, especially for DREAM THEATER fans in Adelaide, is that the band have announced a tour for late April 2020. Get on it now.
CRASHDIET are touring in May and they're bringing Jizzy Pearl's LOVE/HATE out with them. Along for the ride are Australia's own SISTERS DOLL.
Check it all out below.
As the title suggests, former IMMORTAL front man, ABBATH, will tour Australia's eastern states in September.
Check out all the bizzo below.
