After a HUGE 2018 festival, Under The Southern Stars is coming back to Newcastle bigger and better than ever in 2020.
If you are a fan of ’90s rock, you are going to be in gig heaven because three of the heaviest hitters of the genre – Live, Bush and Stone Temple Pilots will be bringing their massive swag of iconic hits to Foreshore Park on Sunday 19 April!
If that wasn’t enough no fooling giants of Oz rock and roll, Rose Tattoo will be joining the party along with Melbourne rockers Electric Mary.
If those last two paragraphs weren’t enough to get you excited about this massive lineup, just check out our Under The Southern Stars playlist below.
This all-killer-no-filler collection of genre-defining tracks is but a mere preview of what you can expect when April 19 rolls around.
It’s going to be a big one for Live who are celebrating 25 years of their iconic Throwing Copper album, featuring the massive tracks I Alone, Selling The Drama and Lightning Crashes.
Bush, oo are no strangers to the charts with their breakthrough record Sixteen Stone going absolute gangbusters in Oz, with Everything Zen, Glycerine, Machinehead and Comedown leading the charge.
The UK rockers also have a new album slated for 2020 so there may be a few surprises included in their set.
When Stone Temple Pilots’ sophomore record Purple dropped, it catapulted the Californian grunge rockers to superstardom.
And for good reason, with tracks like Vasoline, Interstate Love Song, Pretty Penny and Big Empty.
While original frontman Scott Weiland sadly passed away in 2015, the band is still going strong thanks to new lead singer Jeff Gutt who gives his vocal talents to the band’s 2018 release Stone Temple Pilots.
Hearing Interstate Love Song waft over the Newcastle skyline is sure to be a festival highlight!
If you’ve seen Angry Anderson and Rose Tattoo in action, you’d know these hard rockin’ ‘bad boys’ have still got it after all these years.
Expect to be chanting with abandon to the likes of We Can’t Be Beaten, Bad Boy For Love and Rock and Roll Outlaw!
Meanwhile, Melbourne rockers Electric Mary who have opened for the likes of Judas Priest, Kiss, Deep Purple, and Motorhead will kick things off in true rock and roll fashion.
