MUSIC NEWS: Under The Southern Stars confirms new dates - and Cheap Trick!

The Under The Southern Stars spectacular rock music concert series is thrilled to announce their new show dates for April and May with new tickets on sale from February 5!

The series is also very excited to announce that the one and only Cheap Trick have been added to the line up that features global rock superstars, Bush and the Stone Temple Pilots!

With over 5,000 performances spanning four decades, 20 million records sold worldwide, and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cheap Trick are undoubtedly one of the most influential classic rock groups of the past 50 years. The band was formed in 1974 and while it has evolved throughout the years, Cheap Trick has continued to reach mainstream and critical success. Hits such as “I Want You To Want Me,” “Dream Police,” and “Surrender” have cemented the group as one of America’s top rock ‘n’ roll bands of all time. Cheap Trick will be releasing their 20th brand new album, In Another World, on April 9!

Cheap Trick comment; “We look forward to joining Bush and Stone Temple Pilots in one of our favourite countries! We will have new record out and are excited to play some of our new songs

While every effort was made to keep Live on the bill, due to scheduling conflicts and the on going difficulties the world has been subject to, the band are unable to make it to Australia during the new timeframe.

I’m so proud of my team in securing exemption from Commission of Border Control and thankful to all the Captains of Industry, Ministers, Lord Mayors and SA Premier for their letters of support. We are very excited to now be able to announce Cheap Trick as an addition to the line-up, it’s a shame LIVE's schedule won’t permit the new time frame yet I am sure this triple bill will rock our UTSS audiences to the core! Being the first live on stage International tour, we are aware the eyes of the world will be on us championing the re-opening of live International touring not only in Australia but globally. Under the Southern Stars ’21 will be part of history, I urge fans to get in quickly and applaud all for supporting live music and the whole entertainment sector so badly damaged by Covid.” - UTSS promoter Andrew McManus
