(AUS) Select Touring and Metropolis Touring have announced the return of UK indie heroes Jesus Jones to Australia. Part of the now legendary Grebo and alt/dance movement of the ‘90’s alongside Pop Will Eat Itself, EMF, The Shamen, Carter USM and Neds Atomic Dustbin – Jesus Jones have long been considered one of the breakout alternative bands of that time thanks to massive hits ‘Right Here, Right Now’, ‘Real Real Real’ and ‘International Bright Young Thing’.
Frontman Mike Edwards said: “It makes us somewhat unique, among our contemporaries, to be exactly the same five guys as it was all those years ago. We’ve grown up together, and it’s a privilege to all be on the same stage, playing the songs which kick-started our entire career. I can’t believe it’s 25 years since we first played in Australia. Some of our best ever shows have been here, from the old Greek Theatre in Melbourne to the Hordern Pavilion and Selina’s in Sydney. There’s an intensity about playing Australia, and I can’t wait to get back there”
