The veteran Sydney rockers will perform the classic album in full this May and June

Seminal Sydney pop-rockers Moving Pictures will celebrate the 35th anniversary of their classic album Days Of Innocence with a run of live shows along the east coast this May and June.

On the back of a successful stint as the guests of James Reyne on a recent four-month-long, 32-date national tour, Moving Pictures — including founding members Alex Smith and Garry Frost — will continue their revival/renaissance starting with a showing at Newcastle's Belmont 16s on Friday 6 May, moving on to shows in St Kilda (Memo Music Hall, Saturday 14 May), Gold Coast (Twin Towns, Friday 20 May), Bankstown (Bankstown Sports, Friday 27 May), Wentworthville (Wenty Leagues, Saturday 28 May) and Rozelle (Bridge Hotel, Friday 3 June) before closing out in Narrabeen at the town's RSL on Saturday 4 June.

Although the band originally split way back in 1987, Moving Pictures have been regular fixtures of the reunion circuit since 2011, knocking over tours almost every year since reconvening, as well as putting out a new(ish) album, Picture This — a collection of stripped-back reinterpretations of previous works — in 2015.

So, while the band keeps one eye firmly set on the future, take the time to take a trip to the past and celebrate Days Of Innocence with Moving Pictures when they hit the road in a couple of months' time.
