The Living End


The Living End was probably Melbourne´s biggest bands in the nineties and they had a few pretty successful tours in the USA back then, what helped a lot to establish their international career and spread their music in Europe.

This show was part of the ‘Retrospective Tour’ where the Living End played every song they have ever made, all over 8 shows in Melbourne and a handful of them around the major cities in Australia. Quite a lot of touring just before Christmas, but even though, a lot of them were completely sold out.
Most of the fellow fans at the Corner Hotel knew every single bit of every single song and for those who were newbies, a ‘bio’ documentary was displayed in a massive screen while the band was getting ready. This definitely helped to get the audience excited about the show and singing even before the band came out.

It was fun, quite along their usual lines: sound was really good, they were not major mistakes and heaps of young merry boys went crowd-surfing (and more than one hit the floor pretty hard on the press pit!)

I am quite happy to have had the chance to document this show in their home town where they felt the most confortable. Even more, they admitted to have got in trouble in the past for saying that Sydney sucks compared to Melbs. Too funny…

Thanks for reading.
