It’s been one year since The Living End’s epic Retrospective Tour around Australia.
The band played each of their six studio albums in full with seven shows in each state – except for Victoria, where the demand was so high in their hometown of Melbourne that they had to stay for eleven.
The Corner Hotel has always been one of my favourite Melbourne venues, so I wasn’t going to miss the chance to go to nearly every show. To be able to watch one of my favourite bands at my favourite venue night after night was basically a dream come true.
That week was filled with so many great experiences – not only from watching the band but from meeting all the fans, making new friends and being able to document something very special. There was even a marriage proposal on stage one night (she said yes). This tour was about the fans and their dedication just as much as the band.
Here is a selection of my favourite images from the tour, and you can view more here.
