Three much-loved 90s acts join forces for this tour

This event has finished

Alrightly, first we have the Clouds - yes, the Sydney indie pop masters that created 'Cloud Factory', 'Souleater', 'Hieronymous', 'Anthem' and 'Bower of Bliss', among other killer singles. They're also the last of the great AusPop bands of the early 90s to reform (following the Hummingbirds, Falling Joys, Underground Lovers and Ratcat, among others). So that's good. The version we're getting is the Thunderhead-era line-up, incidentally, which will make sense if you care about such things.

Then you have the Wonder Stuff with surviving founders Miles Hunt and Malcolm Treece joined by new members (including former PWEI drummer Fuzz Townsend, fact fans!). You know them because of their smash cover of 'Dizzy' with Vic Reeves, as well as 'The Size of a Cow', 'Don't Let Me Down, Gently', 'Who Wants To Be The Disco King?', 'It's Yer Money I'm After Baby' and 'Welcome to the Cheap Seats', and you probably have a cassette of Never Loved Elvis floating around in your garage somewhere.

Then we have Jesus Jones, who were worldwide superstars thanks to 'Right Here, Right Now' becoming most people's Song That Soundtracked The Falling Of The Berlin Wall, but they had loads of other hits too, like 'Info Freako', 'Real Real Real' and 'International Bright Young Thing'. Also, as it happens, they've never split: aside from changing drummers in the late 90s, this is the same band as ever.

Yeah, this is going to be awesome.
