They’re two of the most revered acts to come out of ’70s and ’80s Australia, and now they’re gearing up to hit the road while sharing headlining duties.
Radio Birdman and Died Pretty stand as trailblazers in the canon of Australian alternative rock, influencing generation after generation of bands not only at home, but all across the globe.
Originally disbanding in 1978 after kicking down the door for Australian independent rock, Radio Birdman have occasionally reformed ever since hitting Big Day Out in 1996 – with their steady current lineup performing together since 2014.
The Ron S Peno led Died Pretty have had a similar history of existence, hitting A Day On The Green last year.
Each band will take turns alternating closing duties on each stop of the upcoming tour.
