Beloved Aussie rockers Grinspoon have today announced their Easy Detention national tour, celebrating iconic albums Easy (1999) and New Detention (2002), with first-ever vinyl pressings of both records set for release on Friday, September 8 and available to pre-order now. The tour will make its way around the country later this year in October and November, supported by Private Function and Cupid & The Stupids.
Kicking off at Miami Marketta Laneway on October 29, the tour will then swing through Hobart, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney, and Newcastle, before finishing up at Astor Theatre Perth on November 24.
Tickets go on sale to the general public at 9am (local) on Friday, June 2 from www.grinspoon.com.au, and fans are invited to join the band’s newsletter to jump in on presale tickets from 10am (local) Thursday, June 1–8am (local) Friday, June 2.
For the first time ever, Grinspoon will be offering a VIP soundcheck meet & greet package, but here’s where the real magic happens: one lucky fan at each show will have the opportunity to join forces with the band, jumping up to perform a Grinners song with Phil, Pat, Joe and Kristian at soundcheck.

Lead singer Phil Jamieson is amped to bring the band’s notoriously high-energy shows to a host of the country’s best live music stages. “We’re delighted to be hitting the road again later this year, I’m so enjoying putting together the set list for these shows,” says Jamieson. “We’ll be throwing in some songs we’ve never played live, believe it or not.”
The Easy and New Detention vinyl records will be released Friday, September 8 and are available to pre-order now, and will be available at the merch desk at all shows.
