Pennywise are Taking the Tour Down Under

Legendary Californian skate-punks will return to Australian shores announcing tour dates for 2022.

Pennywise have announced they will be performing seven shows across Victoria, NSW, QLD, South Australia and Western Australia. The band will be taking fellow punk stalwarts Circle Jerks along for the tour.

Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge has shared his excitement about returning to Australia in a press release.

“Finally Pennywise gets to come back to our home away from home, Australia!,” the statement began.

It continued: “Where the beer flows nonstop, along with the chaos. Never a dull moment on a Pennywise tour down under… only one thing could make it better than usual, and that would be coming to town with our mentors and long-time friends THE CIRCLE JERKS!!! They are back with a vengeance!

“This is gonna be an off the fucking hook nonstop party! And we can’t wait! Get your tix, get on the booze, and get in the pit, we’re coming for you fuckers!!!!!”

Pennywise have just finished a run of sold-out shows in the US with the band performing their first five albums in full, spread out over 5 nights. The final shows of the tour ended with songs from each of the 5 albums, as chosen entirely by the fans.
