The Veronicas to play Melbourne rooftop show

Music In The Park

The Veronicas will play a special Melbourne rooftop show at Fed Square's Transit Bar, overlooking the Yarra River.

Australia’s pop-punk queens proved at Good Things in 2019 why their live show is larger than life – their ‘Untouched’ antics sending the crowd into a spin. This is your chance to see the pair in an extraordinarily intimate environment, overlooking the stunning views from Yarra-side Transit Rooftop.

‘Untouched’ was a top 10 hit across the globe on its release, with The Veronicas’ The Secret Life Of… going four-times platinum in Australia. The hugely versatile duo are renowned for their ability to traverse between heartfelt balladry and communal pop shout-alongs, and have been headlining festivals across Australia since their latest reunion.

The Veronicas set will be part of the ALWAYS LIVE program’s Island In The Sky series of rooftop performances across Melbourne, which will also include Years & Years at Victorian Pride Centre, Thelma Plum at Top Yard, and Big Freedia at Curtin House’s Rooftop Bar.

ALWAYS LIVE CEO, Steve Smith said, “We are tremendously proud of these latest offering to round out the 2022 program. While the mix of events is broad, of all scales and taking place across the state, what they have in common is each brings special, one-off and exclusive events to Melbourne and Victoria, only for ALWAYS LIVE. They also build on the enormous momentum of our line-up to date.”

He continues: “We launched ALWAYS LIVE in March with a record-breaking sell-out performance by Foo Fighters at GMBHA Stadium, closely followed by a 71,000 ticket, sell-out show for Billy Joel, and two sell-out events by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis at the beautiful Hanging Rock. Our rare and intimate Palais Theatre performance by global superstar Dua Lipa sold out in a matter of minutes. These highlights are a fraction of the ALWAYS LIVE program, which positions Melbourne as a global music city and Victoria as the live music capital of Australia.”
