To celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of history’s most celebrated and influential albums of all time, members of Jet, Powderfinger, You Am I and Spiderbait will tour the country this August, performing The Beatles’ iconic Abbey Road in full.
Aussie supergroup Antipodean Rock Collective (ARC) – featuring Kram (Spiderbait), Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I) and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger) – will head to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney this August, where they’ll play Abbey Road from start to finish followed by an encore set of “hits spanning the breadth of The Beatles’ career and catalogue”.
As if that wasn’t enough, ARC will be joined by special guests Ash Naylor (Paul Kelly, Even, Rockwiz), Linda Bull, Brett Wolfenden (The Pictures, Jim Keays) and James Fleming (Eagle & The Worm, Bob Evans) throughout the evening.
Released in 1969, Abbey Road was The Beatles’ eleventh studio LP and features Come Together, Here Comes The Sun, Octopus's Garden and more.
