Gold and Platinum-selling punk rockers Rise Against will return to Australia in February 2024, opening a whopping 17 shows in Australia and New Zealand for blink-182.

Today, in addition to those massive stadium/arena dates, Rise Against have announced two headline gigs in Melbourne and Sydney – their sole headline dates down under this summer. Special guests will be announced soon.

Before the blink-182 tour starts on Thursday, 8 February, at RAC Arena in Perth, the iconic Chicago four-piece will bring their thrilling live shows to two theatres: the Forum in Melbourne on Sunday, 4 February, and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Monday, 5 February.

The general sale begins on Tuesday, 14 November, at noon AEDT, while Frontier Members can access pre-sale tickets on Monday, 13 November, at 11 am local time. You can register here for access to pre-sale tickets. Tickets will be available via the Frontier Touring website.

Rise Against are touring in support of two companion releases, the 2021 album Nowhere Generation and 2022’s follow-up EP Nowhere Generation II. Reviving the band’s renowned brand of propulsive, empowering, impassioned punk rock, the group collaborated with producer Bill Stevenson (The Descendents, Black Flag) on the new album.

In a review of this year’s When We Were Young festival, The Music writer Tamara May watched on as Yellowcard vocalist William Ryan Key joined Rise Against singer Tim McIlrath for an emotional rendition of Swing Life Away. Reviewing Nowhere Generation, Kill Your Stereo writer Alex Sievers summarised:

Don't miss a beat with our FREE daily newsletter

Nowhere Generation is unapologetically timely, embodying three generations who feel unheard, overlooked and left behind when it comes to climate and economic stability of the future that they will endure instead of the decision-makers, filthy rich CEO's and politicians who will die before the ramifications of those actions come due. The future is bleak, but it is also unwritten, and it's high time for us all to band together to help make it an equal, brighter reality. Rise Against's latest body of work is a reminder of that cause.

It’s difficult to argue against the standing, consistent power and durability of Rise Against.
