The Living End announce supports, special guests and DJ’s for their ‘Restrospective’ tour!

It’s just over a month until THE LIVING END kick off their massive 39 DATE RETROSPECTIVE TOUR and the band are now ready to reveal the huge list of special guest bands and DJs who be joining them on the road. In all, 18 BANDS & 7 SPECIAL GUEST DJs ranging from Australian Rock Royalty, iconic 90s punk legends and the next crop of Australian music upstarts will join TLE on their historic and record breaking RETROSPECTIVE TOUR.

With a list as long and illustrious as this one it’s best that we start from the top. JoiningTHE LIVING END on their run of Retrospective Tour shows in PERTH will be three of WA’s finest up and coming bands. SONS OF RICO, THE GROWL & THE NOVOCAINS will share the opening duties at the Rosemount Hotel in the first week of November. Also joining the bill for all shows on the Perth leg will be special guest DJs Brad & Zok from GYROSCOPE. 

In ADELAIDE The Living End will be joined by Australian punk/ska legends and old school touring buddies AREA 7 for three shows and Adelaide locals and all round good guys CITY RIOTS will fill the support slot on all remaining shows. DJ duties for the SA jaunt will be split up between hairy-faced locals THE BEARDS and young South Australian upstarts DANGEROUS! 

When The Retrospective Tour rolls into Sydney in the last week of November the band will be joined by Melbourne indie rock stalwarts EVEN for three consecutive nights, Sydney locals CABINS will take support duties for two shows and AREA 7 will once again join TLE for both performances of their debut self titled album. Spinning tunes each night during the Sydney stint will be 2manyPJs more commonly known as PHIL JAMIESON from GRINSPOON.

Brisbane locals will be treated to four different bands over TLE’s seven-night stay at the Zoo in the first week of December. Sunshine Coasters BAND OF FREQUENCIES, Brisbane boys THE MEDICS and Melbourne’s KINGSWOOD will all fill support spots in Brisbane as well as two very special guest appearances by ASH GRUNWALD. The DJ shoes for these shows will be filled by HAMISH ROSSER (WOLFMOTHER, EX- VINES). 

When THE LIVING END return to their hometown MELBOURNE, they will share the stage with a total of EIGHT bands during their record breaking run of 11 SHOWS at the Corner Hotel. Firstly, TLE are honoured to have Melbourne favourite and national treasure SOMETHING FOR KATE join them for their performance of MODERN ARTillery. The extremely mysterious and endearing IVY AND THE BIG APPLES will join TLE for two of their hometown show dates and 90s favorites AREA 7 & THE MEANIES will also step up to fill support spots.

Opening duties for the newly announced under 18s daytime show will be filled by young Melbourne punks THE SMITH STREET BAND, who will also join TLE for their performance of their most recent release The Ending is just the Beginning Repeating.The remainder of the Retrospective Melbourne dates will see up and coming local bandsKINGSWOOD, DAVE LARKIN BAND & MONEY FOR ROPE take to the stage for support duties. And finally, the DJ decks for all 11 Melbourne dates will be manned by the enigmatic COSMIC DOLPHIN (Johnny Mackay from CHILDREN COLLIDE).
