Following overwhelming demand, iconic Aussie rockers Spiderbait have added a second and final Melbourne show to their Black Betty 20th Anniversary Tour, after the first show completely sold out.

The band will hit Melbourne’s Forum for two huge nights on Thursday 19 September (just announced) and Friday 20 September (sold out). After adding a second Perth show last month due to demand, the trio now plays an epic twelve shows across the nation this AugustSeptember and October to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their seminal 2004 album, Tonight Alright and standout track, ‘Black Betty’.

Frontier members can access presale tickets for the new Melbourne show from 12pm on Thursday 13 June, before tickets go on sale at 1pm on Friday 14 June. All other shows are on sale now via frontiertouring.com/spiderbait.

Recorded in California, Tonight Alright (2004) leant into the hard rock sound of the early-2000’s. The album debuted at No.14 on the ARIA Album Chart that year and featured the band’s most popular song to date, ‘Black Betty’. Defying age and genre, ‘Black Betty’ arrived fifteen years into Spiderbait’s storied career. The song continued to climb the charts after release, reaching the top of the ARIA Singles Chart two months after its debut and hitting the US Top 40 Rock Chart.

To celebrate Tonight Alright, Spiderbait will issue the album on vinyl for the first time. The 20th Anniversary edition – released on 26 July– arrives on limited edition red vinyl, with alternative artwork, imagery and an alternate version of the single, ‘Tonite’. Pre-order the vinyl HERE.

Renowned for their dynamic on-stage energy, Spiderbait are without doubt one of the country’s most beloved live acts. With a catalogue of music that’s distinctive and uncompromising, Spiderbait’s anticipated Black Betty 20th Anniversary Tour will see the band playing their greatest hits and celebrating their greatest hit of all. Don’t miss them playing two huge nights in Melbourne this September!
