Kickass punk icons The Saints are coming to Melbourne in October! The roof-raising four-piece are playing 3 back-to-back shows at the Gasometer on the 5th, 6th and 7th.
There is literally no excuse that would validate missing the opportunity to see a band that Nick Cave himself described as “god-like… just always so much better than everybody else. It was extraordinary to go and see a band that was so anarchic and violent.”
The band has shifted many members over the years – rotating through 37 different members to be exact. The Melbourne line up will consist of Chris Bailey, Iain Shedden, Pat Bourke and Davey Lane.
The Brisbane rockers were the first ever band to release a punk album outside of the US. They even employed the buzz-saw guitars that coined the genre before The Sex Pistols.
Any member of the punk scene needs to witness these pioneers in the flesh.
Don’t be left disappointed, tickets go on sale on Monday 29th August and can be found at Frontier Touring.
