THE DAMNED & HARD ONS Tour Kicks Off Tonight In Brisbane

Share This:

When it came time to find an Australian support to share the stage with them on their final tour, The Damned sent a list of potential bands. That “list” only had one name on it: The Hard Ons. No substitutes would be considered.

As one of Australia’s most legendary punk purveyors The Hard Ons need little introduction. Their first single, 1985’s Surfin’ On My Face was the first of an unprecedented 17 consecutive No. 1’s on the Australian alternative music charts. They were the third Aussie band ever, after Nick Cave and the Go Betweens, to crack the NME Top 5 in the UK and their blistering version of Let There Be Rock with Henry Rollins is one of the greatest covers of all time! It lead to the band and Hank playing 4 songs together on the inaugural Big Day Out in 1992. Legends.

In 2021, the Hard-Ons drafted long-time friend Tim Rogers, the driving force behind the chart-busting, platinum-selling and award winning power-pop act You Am I, as their lead vocalist and now boast a brilliantly expressive and charismatic front-man to augment their rampaging, supercharged punk – metal – power-pop hybrid.

The Damned and The Hard Ons kick off tonight in Brisbane!
