The Offspring And Sum41 Are Teaming Up For A Massive Australian Tour

Punk's not dead!

hottest 100

The Offspring and Sum41 are two of the bands that made punk cool again.

After all, by the ’90s, the genre had largely fallen out of favour, beloved by boomers, science teachers and accountants. The fierce, primal spirit of punk had petered out — Johnny Rotten had a talk show, Sid Vicious was dead, and New Wave had almost totally taken over the game.

Then The Offspring happened. Hailing from California, the band transformed the genre in the ’90s, melding it with pop and ska and creating a new, energetic sound. A few years later, Sum41 carried on that project, releasing their own upbeat blend of anger, angst and jangly hooks.

Now, those –

This is no support-style slot for Sum41 either — the band will be playing a full hour-long set.

That means you’re basically getting two shows for the price of one. Pretty unbeatable.

Early Bird pre-sale is Friday 31 January at 9am.

General tickets go on sale on Monday 3 February at 9am.
