Violent Femmes return to Australia in March 2017 following a sold-out national tour in 2016.
Over three decades the Femmes have provided a string of anthems that have continued to resonate with youths and adults of all persuasions generation after generation. Classics like 'Blister In The Sun', 'Gimme The Car', 'Gone Daddy Gone', 'American Music', 'I Held Her In My Arms', 'Good Feeling' & 'Breakin' Up' are ingrained in Australian DNA. For all intents and purposes Violent Femmes ARE Australian - the alternative Cold Chisel even.
It’s the Violent Femmes as you know and love them appearing Australia All Over.
"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.” – Brian Ritchie
"Friday night saw the return of the Violent Femmes to Australia. And what a triumphant return it was. The absolute capacity crowd in front of Stage 2 were in constant motion – ranging from flat out head banging to substance fuelled ethereal swaying as the ‘Femmes powered through all their hits, including “Gone Daddy Gone”, “American Music”, “Kiss Off” and to close the show, “Add It Up”. – The Music: Womadelaide review
