“Many fans who witnessed the classic Guns N’ Roses line-up of Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, reunited, on Australian stages during this historic band’s previous ‘Not In This Lifetime’ tour in 2017 are still raving about it to this day and the reviews were unanimously glowing,”  Teg Dainty president Paul Dainty AM said.

“With the addition of two of our country’s finest exports, The Chats and Cosmic Psychos, announced as special guests, Australian audiences are in for an explosive night of rock – you certainly don’t want to miss out this time around! Guns N’ Roses are living legends. They never disappoint.”

Known for their whiplash-paced, adrenaline-fuelled slices of punk brilliance, The Chats have been touring international stages – across the UK, US and Europe – throughout the course of this year and already count Iggy Pop and Queens Of The Stone Age amongst their fans. The Chats’ second album, titled Get Fucked!, is scheduled for worldwide release on 19 August via Bargain Bin Records. On 12 July, the band release their rip-roaring latest single: the somewhat self-explanatory ‘I’ve Been Drunk In Every Pub In Brisbane’, which clocks in at just 89 seconds.

Originally formed in Spring Plains, Victoria back in 1982, one of Australia’s defining punk rock bands, Cosmic Psychos, have hooned up and down rock’n’roll highways the world over for 40 years now. Legendary producer Butch Vig proclaimed Cosmic Psychos were an influence on not just Nirvana but the ‘90s Seattle grunge scene as a whole. Pearl Jam’s frontman Eddie Vedder has also spoken candidly of the impact these unlikely punk-rock heroes had on him growing up.
