Live Tour Date
Live Tour Info
The USA quartet first achieved worldwide success with their 1994 album, Throwing Copper, which spawned the huge hits Lightening Crashes, I Alone and All Over You and has now sold over 10 million copies worldwide. This is the first time Australian audiences will be introduced to Live’s new front man, Chris Shinn, who joined the band in 2012.
Their latest album, The Turn, marks the band’s ninth studio album and original members, Chad Taylor (Guitar & Backing Vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (Bass & Percussion), Chad Gracey (Drums & Percussion), who are joined by Chris Shinn (Lead Vocals & Guitar), have re-invigorated its sound with effusive energy and massive hooks.
‘’Love it, The Turn, is easily the best Live album since Throwing Copper”
‘’The Turn is full of surprises and a brand new energy. The band hits harder and heavier than before,
which is a very welcome adjustment.”
‘’Newcomer Chris Shinn is a fine replacement’’
“Shinn, sincerely, is a better singer than the former face of the group. He has a ripe fervor that few artists in the rock genre can boast these days’’
“Shinn’s ability to mix up his vocals have added a diversity to the band that was previously missing’’
Rush on Rock
