The Living End
The Living End have announced a massive 34-date nationwide tour in support of their latest album, State Of Emergency. After cleaning up at the Jack Awards and winning awards for best band, best male, best live television appearance and perhaps most surprisingly, best drummer, the band will play an all ages show at The Civic Centre in Wodonga on September 19 and two under 18s shows at The Palace in St Kilda on September 20 and 21. The main support for the tour will be Perth’s End Of Fashion, with Sydney up-and-comers Red Riders opening. Before that, the band will be on the 39-date Warped and headline tour of the United States, with their latest record available over there through Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong label, Adeline Records.
Land Of The Living
It’s been more than three years since The Living End has offered a tour of such significance. Primed and ready to spring into action on the last day of winter, The Living End is set to take on an all-states tour which will bring the band to Cairns in September. This highly respected and distinctive three-piece act from Melbourne gained even more fans this year with their critically-acclaimed number one ARIA chart debuting album State Of Emergency. Tickets for The Living End’s September 26 all-ages concert at Brothers leagues Club go on sale on Thursday, July 13. Phone 4053 1053 for details.

The Living End
Having just completed one tour, The Living End is now ready to undertake an even bigger one, the All States Of Emergency tour. While this is of more significance to regional folk, who didn’t get to see them last time, it does mean that we get to see one of the best live bands in the country once again. Bonus. They’ll tour North America for the next two months (where they’ll be part of the massive Warped Tour, as well as doing their own headlining shows), then return home to deliver their typically dynamic rock performances at The Palace on September 20 and 21 for all ages, and September 22 for over 18s. The support for all shows are End Of Fashion and Red Riders. Tickets go on sale on Thursday July 13 Ticketek and www.tpa.net.au
The Living End: 2006 Jack Awards Best Live Band Nominee
In the lead up to the Jack Awards, the only publicly voted awards for live music in Australia, The Drum will grab a few thoughts from various nominees. This week it’s The Living End.
The count down to the Jack Awards have begun…Got any hot dates or outfits planned for the Black Carpet this year?
“I don’t really like dates…I’m more of a sultana kind of guy.”
What’s been your most memorable experience at the Jack Awards in previous years? If you haven’t been yet…heard any good rumours?
I’ve only been once which was last year. Tommy Lee was there, we played and I won an award so t gets the big thumbs up for me.
You’re up against Grinspoon, Wolfmother, Cut Copy, End Of Fashion and The Mess Hall in the Best Live Band category…what do you think your odds are?
“I think those guys are all good, I just don’t think they’re as good as us! Ha ha…I’m a bit biased after all! Truthfully I don’t know but we just enjoy getting feedback from a live audience and we’re not concerned with being a hype band. We will let the public decide.”
