It was tour news galore yesterday following the long weekend (for some) and we couldn’t be more stoked with the calibre of bands hitting the road to a venue near you (also for some).
Kicking things off with I Killed The Prom Queen’s Music for the Recently Deceased 10th Anniversary Tour. Yes, it’s hard to believe that a decade ago Michael Crafter was fronting the band alongside Jona Weinhofen, J.J. Peters, Kevin Cameron and Sean Kennedy. The tour will be conducted by their band’s current line up but you never know with these anniversary shows, we could see a guest appearance from members of the earlier line up to celebrate the album’s milestone.

And last but not least metal act Disturbed have made good on their promise to return to the country for the first time since 2011 to perform songs from their latest album Immortalized which debuted at #1 on the Aria Charts. The guys have also had a huge crack at the commercial radio industry with their song “The Sound of Silence” getting added to playlists right across the country. Whether you’re a fan or not, these guys know how to pull a crowd and when they get one, they do not disappoint live. Joining them for the ride will be Melbourne’s very own 12 Foot Ninja who are also killing it overseas at the moment.
