Seminal Aussie punk band The Meanies have announced a run of National tour dates this coming June / July, with 8 shows across 4 weekends taking in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Townsville.
Since forming in ’89, Link, Wally, Jaws and Ringo have kept the spirit of The Meanies alive with selected shows every year much to the delight of fans. 2017 is no exception with these freshly announced dates, and punters across the country can expect the usual high voltage Meanies show peppered with a set of favourites including Darkside Of My Mind, Scum, ’10% Weird’, and more.
With a career spanning decades, The Meanies have established themselves as one of Australia’s pre-eminent underground rock bands, performing with such international luminaries as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Redd Kross, Superchunk, Fugazi and the Hard-Ons and appearing at Festivals including the Big Day Out, Livid and Push Over. The Meanies have also toured extensively through countries such as Spain, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland.
With Vocalist Link Meanie preparing to relocate overseas permanently, it’s hard to say when these four band members may have the chance to share a stage again in the future.
These shows may be your last chance to catch the legendary Meanies live.
