Two 90s rock juggernauts, Live and Incubus, have announced their return to Australia in April 2024 as a co-headline tour and as the headliners for the inaugural Lookout Festival, leading a line-up that sports Australian rock music royalty.

The two bands’ appearances begin on Saturday, 6 April, at Lookout Festival in Bribie Island, followed by other festival dates in Southport (7 April), Mornington Racecourse (13 April), and the Whitford Nodes Park in WA on Saturday, 20 April.

In between those festival dates, Live and Incubus will join forces for a run of co-headline dates across the country, performing at Wollongong’s WIN Entertainment Centre on Tuesday, 9 April, Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Thursday, 11 April, Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena on Sunday, 14 April, and Adelaide’s The Drive on Wednesday, 17 April.

At Lookout Festival, the two rock legends will be joined by Birds Of Tokyo, Eskimo Joe and The Superjesus.

Tickets to Lookout Festival and the dates in Wollongong and Adelaide will be sold via Ticketmaster, while the Sydney and Melbourne dates will be sold via Ticketek. You can purchase tickets on Thursday, 21 September, at 2 pm local time.

“It has been way too long, and I couldn’t be happier that LIVE is finally returning to Australia for the first time in 5 years,” Live’s Ed Kowalczyk commented in a statement. “The band and the show is so good and so strong, and the fans who have seen it so far have been extremely happy! So, it was most definitely time to come and share it with our mates down under.

“And the icing on the cake is going to be sharing the stage with Incubus for the first time. I have always been a fan of their deep vibes, intellectual lyrics, and ground-breaking musical style. I think the pairing of our two bands is perfect in so many ways, and I’m sure it will be a night to remember for all of the fans. See ya soon!”

Incubus lead vocalist Brandon Boyd added, “We’re excited to come back to Australia and see everyone! It’s been way too long, so we’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new friends in cities we’ve never played before! LIVE has been a band we’ve always admired, so to share the stage with Ed and company will be something truly special. We can’t wait!”
