2008 proved to be a huge success for The Living End and now the clock has clicked over to celebrate another year the band continue to maintain their dominance as the rock band of the year as they kicked into a new gear with extraordinary performances on the national Big Day Out tour.

May 2009 will be diarised as the Australian rock calendar event of the year with a Big Top performance in Brisbane’s Musgrave Park by three of Australia’s hottest rock bands, The Living End will be joined by special guests Gyroscope and Tame Impala on the “The Raise The Alarm tour”, this will be The Living End’s only major city performances for 2009. Also a reminder the venues are suitable for an all age’s audience giving an opportunity for the army of youngsters who love the band to get their live Living End hit for one last time this year!

Renowned for putting on power pumped performances Gyroscope received critical acclaim last year with their number one debuting album ‘Breed Obsession’. They completed their biggest ever national tour on the back of the release of their momentous and poignant single ‘Australia’ which became a sing along anthem along the way.

Tame Impala, deliver an inimitable style of classic psych rock blending serious riffs with grand grooves with pounding drums. This psychedelic trio from Perth released their debut EP in October last year and toured with luminary acts such as The Black Keys, Mess Hall, Rocket Science, You Am I, Futureheads & Yeasayer as well as MGMT.

All three bands pack a powerful punch in the live arena and with their combined passion; commitment, and sincere dedication, The Raise the Alarm tour will deliver one hell of a rockin’ ride!

Tickets are on sale from Thursday February 26th and with the band having won over a whole new breed of fans this show is sure to sell out fast!
