Ready… set… go!
The ever adventuring Naoko-powered wonderbeast of Japanese sugar coated rockin’ fun SHONEN KNIFE return to Australia for the fourth time in 30 years since their debut visit to this far away land on the Big Day Out back in 1997… where they also played a string of shows together with Rocket from The Crypt.
Now travelling in their 36th year of being, nearing on 1200 shows and 18 studio albums they never tire of the energetic rock ’n’ round!
With original member Atsuko back on the bass, joining Naoko and latest drummer Risa, after the past year touring latest album Adventure through Japan, UK, Ireland, US and Canada… they finally venture this way again, flipping the rainbow upsidedownunder with a full tour on the back of an invitation to play the 2017 OZASIA festival in Adelaide, and subsequent NGV FRIDAY NIGHTS at The House of Dior, and the wild west outback of WAVE ROCK WEEKENDER!Shonen Knife Website
