Welcome to the September news from The Living End.
Ok friends of TLE, it is a big one this month. Here we go…
The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating Tour has finally commenced! After a lengthy wait, fans are finally getting their fill of The Living End’s legendary rock show, and for most people their first peek at songs from The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating played live. It kicked off in Brisbane with two huge shows last week, followed by some packed Sydney dates at the Enmore Theatre over the weekend. Plenty more where that came from as Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth are still to come. With such rarely heard live favourites as Save the Day and Pictures in the Mirror making the set list, these will be firecracker shows. Check out some reviews thus far here and here and some pretty pictures here.
Prior to the gargantuan tour taking flight, The Living End delivered one helluva lunchtime gig to eager students at Melbourne Rudolph Steiner School, with a special performance as part of triple j’s fantastic Unearthed High initiative. Winning band Skakadactyl put on a great show and TLE had a great time. Check out some photos from the gig here and Chris’s hilarious post-show wrap-up with The Doctor here. Exciting stuff.
Some of you may have been lucky enough to catch TLE’s triumphant set at the 2011 Splendour in the Grass. Well, now we are able to offer you a special look behind the scenes; Channel [V] hung out with the guys all day and captured all the stuff that goes on backstage for their special program “Hangin’ with The Living End” The show will be premiered on [V] next Thursday September 08 at 9.00pm. Don’t miss this!
If you need some sweet tunes to get you through the wait until you can catch The Living End live in action, we recommend you pick up the current single from The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating. This cracker tune is called Song for the Lonely, and you can pick it up at iTunes with special b-side Gasoline here, right now. See the beautiful video for the single by clicking here.
Elsewhere, some BIG shows have been added to The Living End’s calendar in the past couple of weeks. Firstly, TLE will head to Kalgoorlie for what we think is their first ever show in the city. They’ll be hitting up Goldfields Oasis Recreation Centre on Thursday September 15 with current touring buddies Hunting Grounds, tickets are here. The band will also make their return to Victoria’s Pyramid Rock Festival in December as the returning Australian headliners. This is a seriously amazing bill, check out all the information here.
