A new state-wide celebration of contemporary music, ALWAYS LIVE, is set to turn up the volume on the Major Events calendar in 2022 – cementing Melbourne and Victoria as the home of live music in Australia.
The first – and largest – event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, ALWAYS LIVE is the only Australian Major Event dedicated to highlighting live contemporary music from home and abroad, spotlighting Victoria as the key cultural destination for audiences across the Asia-Pacific.
From big names to rising stars, arena-style shows to intimate performances on rooftops, in lane ways and in small venues, the event will showcase Victoria’s unparalleled home-grown talent, the best acts from around the country and the most sought-after artists from across the globe.
In a coup for the state, 12-time Grammy Award-winning US rockers Foo Fighters will perform a one-off concert, and the first ever live music show, at Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium on Friday 4 March. The Australian exclusive will set the tone for the world-class event in advance of its arrival later this year. Foo Fighters will be joined by Amyl & The Sniffers and The Meanies.
Tickets for Foo Fighters at GMHBA on Friday 4 March are on sale 12pm Friday 25 February at www.alwayslive.com.au.
