KINGS OF THRASH return to Australia with “WAKE UP….AUSTRALIA!!!”

Featuring David Ellefson, Jeff Young and special guest Chris Poland of MEGADETH!!!

KINGS OF THRASH! Back down under due to high demand! And with some extra special

embellishments… For his first time in Australia, the original MEGADETH guitarist, Chris Poland, will be

joining the group to perform the MEGADETH album “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?" in its entirety

plus a Best Of set for their upcoming Australian shows. An extra bonus to this run of shows… a very

exclusive, Q&A evening with the band themselves in Melbourne.

KINGS OF THRASH “Wake Up…Australia!!!” features GRAMMY® Award winning, co-founding member

of Megadeth, bassist David Ellefson, along with guitarist Jeff Young from the acclaimed "So Far, So

Good… So What!" album and finally, after all these years, the original Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland,

who recorded the first 2 extremely influential albums "Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good!",

along with the multi-platinum worldwide smash, "Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?”

What an honour to reunite these original members of a groundbreaking genre and showcase an evening of

early Thrash classics in MELBOURNE*, CANBERRA, BRISBANE, SYDNEY, ADELAIDE (First time) and

then MELBOURNE AGAIN!

If you were lucky enough to catch the band on their last tour of Australia in 2023… the shows were packed to

the rafters and the VIP experience packages were sold out across the board. We were left wanting more…

So, we asked the fans… What would they want for a follow up tour of Kings of Thrash in Aus? The

resounding, definitive answer? What will now be known as the Kings of Thrash “WAKE

UP….AUSTRALIA!” Tour.

This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this line up… doing this album… with these guys…

rounded out most expertly with the esteemed Chaz Leon and Fred Aching, returning once again, upon

demand.

See our beloved KOT live in Australia on the following dates…

The run of Australian shows will kick off with a VERY SPECIAL Q & A, SIT-DOWN EVENING IN

MELBOURNE*. Hardline will host an intimate, seated evening with David, Jeff and Chris. This will be a night

of crowd interaction and Q & A on Monday, 22nd July at the Corner in Melbourne. This is your exclusive
