Blood Sweat & Beers to play three Melbourne shows


After a ginormous 2017, Blood Sweat and Beers the Concert is continuing to assault audience’s senses in 2018. These newly announced shows give audiences the chance to see their rock’n’roll heroes live around the country, performing their greatest hits. Blood Sweat and Beers hit Melbourne’s Burvale Hotel on Friday March 23, Musicland on Saturday March 24 and Terminus Hotel on Sunday March 25.

Inspired by the book written by Murray Engleheart, The Concert covers the years when Rose Tattoo cranked everything higher than before and became the loudest, most threatening band. Banned from the TV show Countdown, Rose Tattoo often played in prisons and often had fight to get out of the venues they’d just played. The Angels were Australia’s number one live band who transformed venues into rebellious rallies. AC/DC don’t need to be introduced with their global success and The Screaming Jets were one of the last bands to record for Alberts.

“What an honour. Firstly, writing Blood Sweat and Beers, the everything louder than everything else history of Oz rock,” says Engleheart. “Then having that title adopted by a legendary bunch of blokes for a national tour that will see them blast out some of the greatest rock n roll ever made.”

This concert has past and present members from all of Australia’s favourite rock bands such as Mark Evans (AC/DC), Jim Hilbun (The Angels), Angry Anderson and Dai Pritchard (Rose Tattoo), Grant Walmsley (Screaming Jets) and Greg Aldridge (Drummer of Rock). They’re the best of the best when it comes to rock, playing countless gigs to millions of people, hit singles in the ARIA charts and inducted into the ARIA hall of fame.
