Fucked Up confirm sideshows

Hot from the news that they will be blowing the minds of Foo Fighters’ fans this December, Fucked Up have confirmed two small sideshows as part of their Australian visit.

An unlikely choice to support Foo Fighters and Tenacious D later this year, the hardcore punk crew had been hotly tipped to land on our shores at some stage this summer. While no-one was expecting them to arrive as part of a stadium tour, fans will no doubt be champing at the bit to see the band perform their epic new album David Comes To Life.

Those fans in Sydney and Melbourne will also have the chance to see the Canadian six-piece in a more intimate mode come December when they play the East Brunswick Club on November 30th and a yet-to-be-announced venue in Sydney in Sydney on December 6th.

Fucked up sideshows:
Wednesday 30th November – East Brunswick Club, Melbourne
Tuesday 6th December – sideshow, venue TBC

Have they announced the show for good god yet....because they should

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 19th Sep, 2011



I was thinking that too.

The Looking For Gold blog linked above doesn't have the sideshow dates that I can see, just the FF shows. So where's the actual confirmation of the sideshows? The East Brunswick Club website doesn't have anything up yet and the other articles "confirming" the shows don't have any actual sources either.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 19th Sep, 2011

Guess they announced it too early.

grattan

grattan said on the 19th Sep, 2011

Clearly because someone at Fucked Up HQ got a slap down from the tour promoters and they had to pull the dates.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 19th Sep, 2011

But it's still gonna go ahead, right? Right?

Braveheart81 said on the 10th Nov, 2011

So am I right in assuming that these guys are fantastic live?

I'll admit that I have only listened to a couple of their songs.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 11th Nov, 2011

They are absolutely fantastic live. Saw them twice in February. Think Les Savy Fav with a more punk-rock edge in terms of the live show. Pink Eyes leaves no stone unturned and no punter untouched.

Braveheart81

Braveheart81 said on the 11th Nov, 2011

Well, considering I saw Les Savy Fav twice when they toured, I should probably buy a ticket then.

That's right, sarcaz.

Here are two of my favourite live vids of FU - this got them banned from MTV!

Someone buy an extra ticket.

Trying to sort out my shit for a fly in-fly out Fucked Up extravaganza.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 11th Nov, 2011

If you're legit up for it and can wire me the dosh I will gladly get you a ticket when they go on sale next Friday.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 11th Nov, 2011

Ha! Like I have money.

One of you corporate fatcats should just shout me and then scalp it when my plans fall through.

I could probably get a bit of change for those Foo Fighters tickets I won.

Yes. I will buy you a ticket in the presale next Wednesday.

RAMONESelaar said on the 30th Nov, 2011

So, uhhhh, that show was amazing. Relentless energy, fantastic setlist, great crowd interaction (there's few better punk frontmen than Pink Eyes). Only bad moment was some fuckhead copping a feel of the bassist before stagediving.

Stefan Beck

Stefan Beck said on the 30th Nov, 2011

I thought it was impossible but my excitement levels have risen even higher!

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 30th Nov, 2011



Get excited, it was great! Gig of the year. Pink Eyes hung around afterwards and hugged/signed/chatted/took pictures. What a legend.

I was a bit concerned when I saw two Southern Cross tattoos though

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 30th Nov, 2011

Probably some cubs that are really into Foo Fighters.

Anyway, Pink Eyes is a total legend. Love him to bits.

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure one of them was security; so it's not all bad.

He really is. And after the show when he was talking to people he was (or at least seemed) genuinely interested in what they had to say. He was stoked when I told him how much I adore their new album.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 30th Nov, 2011

Dude, when I told him at Soundwave how long I'd been waiting for them to tour, he bearhugged me and lifted me into the air.

Not fifteen minutes earlier, he'd carried Santos around the field in a fireman's carry.

RAMONESelaar

RAMONESelaar said on the 6th Dec, 2011

For what it's worth, in Melbourne it was

Smith Street Band: 8.50 - 9.20 (was changed at last minute from 9-9.30)

Fucked Up: 10.00 - I don't fucking know, but it wasn't long enough.

MorningAfterboy

MorningAfterboy said on the 6th Dec, 2011



Doors are at 8, so I assume I Exist on 8:30 and Fucked Up at 9:30/9:45?



No! [URL="http://www.moshtix.com.au/event.aspx?id=52166"]Get tickets now!

You're both invited to the Courthouse beforehand, too.

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 6th Dec, 2011

really surprised it didn't sell out. there are like 400 Fucked Up fans just on this forum lol.

RAMONESelaar

I'm surprised too. Melbourne sold out as soon as SSB were announced.

sarcasm_mister

sarcasm_mister said on the 6th Dec, 2011

just got back.

had an awesome time! the set was terribly short but a shitload of fun. Damien is one heluva entertainer, i didn't stop smiling and headbanging throughout. i was on the balcony so naturally my highlight was when we climbed up haha. I Exist i found surprisingly good. i'm not a fan of the singer so i was glad he was lost in the mix so the musicians around him got a bit more of a chance.

thanks guys for the parking tips found a spot about 2min walk from the venue.

shazie

shazie said on the 6th Dec, 2011

Just got back then, got the train home with Jose and then we noticed MAB was in the carriage behind us the whole time when we got off.

Had such a fantastic time and was really nice meeting everyone again (as well as everyone I met for the first time)!.

iNegro

iNegro said on the 6th Dec, 2011

Yeah, was pretty cool too put names to faces for once, even though I don't post in the forums here too much. Fantastic show from Fucked Up, and props to Pink Eyes for being a perfect example of what frontmen should do.

Stefan Beck said on the 8th Dec, 2011

Greatest show.

Amazing energy.
Could feel the floor quake under my feet from everyone jumping around.

Jumped up and kissed Pink Eyes on the head as he passed me during a song and he whirled around and bear-hugged me.
Everybody signed my vinyl sleeve afterwards. Damian scrawled a gigantic "THANK YOU FOR COMING SO FAR".

Fantastic seeing all the FasterLoudarians at the show and meeting the ones I hadn't before.
(she had that boy-haircut-flat-chest Tegan & Sara look but that Shazie chick was pretty hot)
I think I need to enrol for more classes at the MAB School Of Moshing. Those Sydney kids went way too hard for me to keep up.
