We adore international lineups, and with the return of international borders opening, the onslaught of overseas bands is imminent. Californian punk act Pennywise are the latest act to announce their return to our corner of the world this September, bringing with them Circle Jerks to The Land Down Under for the very first time.
Presented by Live Nation, this nationwide tour marks the legendary punks’ first journey back since 2019. Fans will get to hear beloved classics from ‘Bro Hymn’ to ‘Fuck Authority’ as well as the boys’ iconic record, Straight Ahead (the band’s tour in 2019 celebrated its 20th Anniversary which saw the tour completely sold out!). Guitarist Fletcher Dragge shares his excitement for their return to Australia:
“Finally Pennywise gets to come back to our home away from home, Australia!
Where the beer flows nonstop, along with the chaos. Never a dull moment on a Pennywise tour down under… only one thing could make it better than usual, and that would be coming to town with our mentors and long-time friends THE CIRCLE JERKS!!! They are back with a vengeance!
This is gonna be an off the fucking hook nonstop party! And we can’t wait! Get your tix, get on the booze, and get in the pit, we’re coming for you fuckers!!!!!”
Expect tickets to fly out the door when they go on sale this Thursday, March 31st at 11am local time.
