Living Colour Tour Australia

by Tim Cashmere

May 9 2006

Legendary New York hard rock band Living Colour is coming to Australia and they’re coming soon.

In fact, next week if you live in Melbourne or Sydney you can check out the band that changed the face of rock ‘n’ roll in the 80s and did for black musicians what Jimi Hendrix did in the 60s.

Living Colour came along at a time when rock was segregated, and together with Bad Brains, who formed just a few years earlier, showed the world once more than black musicians could play rock ‘n’ roll.

It didn’t hurt that Mick Jagger produced their first demo, which earned them a worldwide record deal with Epic.

If you want to see just how hard the eighties rocked, get down to either of the following venues next week:

May 16 – The Metro, Melbourne
May 17 – The Metro, Melbourne
May 18 – The Metro, Melbourne
May 20 – The Roxy, Sydney

Tickets are on sale now.

I'm very excited about the Australian tour. It's just a shame that there has been ZERO promotion for it! :(
