Last in Australia in 2017, performing shows across the country, with a reputation as one of the formative influences on American alternative rock, Dinosaur Jr. – J Mascis (guitar, vocals, primary songwriter), Lou Barlow (bass, vocals), and Murph (drums) – are ready to bring the classics down under. With over 14 albums to date and more than 30 years performing live on stage as a band, Dinosaur Jr are bringing their best live set to date to Australia & New Zealand.

Recently releasing their latest live album Emptiness At The Sinclair, recorded at the Sinclair in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Dinosaur Jr. proved yet again their musicality and artistry only continues to soar with Post Trash claiming “all of it is high quality…the ferocity and devotion of a Dinosaur Jr live show is still there, and as usual, sometimes you cannot make out the difference whether it is a live rendition or a studio version.”

With a signature sound that transcends generations, their 2021 project Sweep It Into Space saw the band continue to expand their personal universe without ever losing their central core.

2023 marks a special year for the band. Celebrating 30 years since the release of their influential 1993 grunge album Where You Been, they headed on tour across the globe, including five upcoming sold-out headline shows at The Garage London as well as multiple sellout dates across the US. The band have also performed festival slots at Spain’s Primavera Weekender, Germany’s Rolling Stone Beach and Mempho Music Hall in Memphis this year.

With a live performance to remember and a sprawling discography of hits, don’t miss out on these highly-anticipated Dinosaur Jr. shows as they make their way across Australia and New Zealand next February & March.
