Ah, the Big Day Out! From its very first outing in Sydney in 1992 through to Pearl Jam’s last chords ringing out across Joondalup in 2014, the BDO was a rite of passage for Aussie music lovers for over 20 years. Now, after sold out shows across the country, Adelaide rockers THE RED SKULL are heading to Melbourne’s most iconic pub to perform the best of the BDO live!
THE RED SKULL’S BIG NIGHT OUT is not your average covers show – it’s an authentic recreation of the sights, sounds and vibes from Australia’s most loved music festival. We’ve listened to BDO veterans across the country and squeezed more classic anthems into the show than humanly possible. All the big guns are represented – Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, The Offspring, Tool, Metallica and The Killers – but there’s also a huge selection of Aussie music legends. Think the Gurge, Jebs, Spiderbait and The Living End just to name a few.
In order to provide the complete Big Day Out experience, THE RED SKULL will be joined at the Corner by Melbourne’s own DJ MIICHA, a previous winner of the national YOUTHSHOT competition whose mixtape of Triple J’s hottest 100 of all time won hearts around the country. She’s dedicated to bringing back The Boiler Room which means more Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx and New Order than you can shake a stick at, so get ready to dance your arses off!
