Violent Femmes will return to Australia in March for their biggest tour in more than 10 years.

Following on from their sell out tour earlier this year, the beloved punk folksters will spread the net wider in 2017, with dates in regional and suburban centres as well as the major cities. There will also be an encore performance of their A Day On The Green headline shows with Hoodoo Gurus.

Hobart-based bassist Brian Ritchie says: “We would like to continue our decades-long love affair with Australia by bringing the rock to the regions. We will be playing old favourites and new with our usual shambolic splendour.”

The 2017 Violent Femmes tour will kick off in Melbourne on March 17 and conclude on April 1 on the Gold Coast. Presales begin on December 16.
