It’s time to dust off your Vans and grab that faded band tee outta storage. The biggest punk tour to hit Australia in years has. Finally. Been. Given. The. Green. Light. AGAIN.
When The Offspring and Sum 41 announced their massive Australian tour in early 2020, tickets flew like hot cakes. Every show around the country sold out instantly within two hours of going on sale, and when the pandemic shut down in March 2020, many ticketholders were left brokenhearted.
However, it’s a brand new dawning this year and we hope you’ve still held onto your tickets after all this time. Thanks to the legends at Destroy All Lines, The Offspring are preparing to hit accelerate on their return to Australia. The 90s punk rock icons have confirmed they’ll be hitting all major Australian cities this December to play all their hits over the year plus songs from their brand new record, Let the Bad Times Roll in order to redeem their promise from 2020, with new shows added in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne due to the insane popularity of this tour. Noodles shares his excitement on this highly anticipated announcement:
“I’m super stoked, we’re all super stoked to finally be coming back to Australia on tour in December.”
Canadian punk pop outfit Sum 41 have also confirmed they’re sticking to their plans to jump on all tour dates with The Offspring this December. This tour will follow the band’s overseas engagements celebrating twenty years of their sophomore record, Does This Look Infected? alongside Simple Plan on the Blame Canada tour.
Expect tickets to fly during that pre-sale once again — this is slated to be the must attend tour of the goddamn year. You have been warned.
