Tours: Extreme And Living Colour Announce Australian Tour


Multi-platinum hard-rock heroes,  EXTREME, announce their first Australian tour in 5 years to celebrate the release of their new album “Six”, and bringing their friends LIVING COLOUR to join them as they celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Stain”. 

Get ready for a night of exceptional live music as two of the most influential and talented rock bands come together for an unforgettable show. Two iconic bands, one electrifying night. 

With the force of a Boston wrecking ball, EXTREME swings between unapologetic fits of fret-burning hard  rock and intimately introspective balladry. This dynamic affirms the iconic multiplatinum Beantown  quartet—Gary Cherone (vocals), Nuno Bettencourt (guitar), Pat Badger (bass), and Kevin Figueiredo  (drums)—as one of rock’s most unpredictable, undeniable, and unbreakable groups whose songs course  through the very fabric of popular culture. 

EXTREME is the rare band whose music has appeared in an actual cult series a la Bill & Ted as well as the  Netflix juggernaut “Stranger Things.” They’ve sold 10 million records, topped the Billboard Hot 100 at No.  1, packed major venues on multiple continents, memorably performed at the Freddie Mercury Tribute  Concert in London, and regularly average over 5 million monthly listeners on Spotify. 

EXTREME is about to release their sixth studio album and their dynamic approach hits harder than ever  on their 2023 full-length offering, Six – which is due for release on 9th June via EarMUSIC. Pre-orders are  available now here and watch the band’s undeniable firepower and chemistry on the album’s first single, Rise, which was directed by Nuno and filmed in Los Angeles here. 

LIVING COLOUR emerged onto the scene and made the people stop and take notice. Formed in 1984  and spearheaded by guitarist Vernon Reid, their music became a creative fusion influenced by free jazz,  funk, hard rock and heavy metal. By 1986, the band started to solidify, with Corey Glover joining on  vocals, bassist Muzz Skillings and drummer Will Calhoun anchoring the rhythm section that helped hone  their unique blend of music with broad-based appeal.  

Their debut album, Vivid was released in 1988 on Epic Records and reached No. 6 on the Billboard Albums  chart and eventually became a multi-platinum success. It featured Cult of Personality which was a No.  13 hit on the Billboard Singles chart and went on to earn the band their first Grammy Award for Best Hard  Rock Performance. 

LIVING COLOUR’s follow up album, Time’s Up, was a gold selling release that won them their other  Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1991. By the middle of the ’90s, the band had gone on hiatus,  and they were re-energised in 2003, and joined by bass player Doug Wimbish. Since then, Living Colour have remained an active unit, released two albums of new material and received raves for their  incendiary live performances. Their latest album Shade was released in 2017, charting in the US Top Hard  Rock Albums Billboard and receiving critical acclaim. 

This event is not to be missed, as EXTREME and LIVING COLOUR will take you on a journey with their  electrifying performances. Experience these two hugely iconic hard rock bands in one unforgettable  show. So, book your tickets now and brace yourself for an epic night of music.
