Original lineup of rock outfit +LIVE+ reunite; headed to Australia in November

American rock outfit +LIVE+ have reunited after almost 10 years, and are heading to Australia for a series of shows under the stars this November – including an outdoor event at the Hunter Valley’s iconic Roche Estate.

The original line-up of Ed Kowalczyk (vocals, guitar), Chad Taylor (guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass) and Chad Gracey (drums, percussion) are bringing their live show to Australia, along with special guests, Lifehouse and The Calling.

The band’s seminal album Throwing Copper achieved eight times platinum, holding down five triple j Hottest 100 places and leading a generation of teens from grunge back to rock.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of their debut album Mental Jewelry, which will be celebrated with re-issues on August 11 on vinyl, cassette and a two-CD set. Produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, the album was originally released on December 31, 1991 and includes the hit singles ‘Pain Lies On The Riverside’ and ‘Operation Spirit (The Tyranny of Tradition)’.

“The band couldn’t be more excited to return to Australia and celebrate our reunion,” +LIVE+ frontman Ed Kowakczyk said.

“We are having the time of our lives and can’t wait to share this experience with our fans down under. It’s gonna be amazing!”

Returning to Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Brisbane’s Riverstage and the iconic Roche Estate in the New South Wales Hunter Valley, the band has locked in three show only, with no further shows possible.

Tickets are on sale Thursday July 27, with an exclusive pre-sale available at www.liveaustraliantour.com.au
