Australian rock band The Church are hitting the road later this year for An Evening with The Church. As 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the four-piece’s most beloved album, the tour will see New Zealand fans treated to an extraordinary performance of Starfish performed in its entirety, as well as a number of greatest hits spanning the band’s incredible 38-year career.
Forming in Sydney in 1980, The Church’s extensive career has cemented them as one of Australia’s most enduring bands of the post-punk era and well-deserving of their place in the ARIA Hall of Fame. Having refined their unique and defining sound over the course of a remarkable 26 albums within 35 years, including Starfish, The Blurred Crusade and Priest=Aura, the band have received international acclaim with fans within Australia and New Zealand and across the world still enjoying their iconic music today.
The Church s groundbreaking and most successful album Starfish remains known for the iconic signature tune ‘Under the Milky Way’, an ARIA-winning fan-favourite that has stood the test of time. Released in 1988, the LP features 10 individually memorable songs that marked a new worldwide commercial success for the band. These songs are guaranteed to delight fans when the album is played live in its entirety on its 30th anniversary during this once in a lifetime concert experience. With a string of hit singles across their expansive career including ‘The Unguarded Moment’ and ‘Almost With You’, fans will also be treated to a host of greatest hits lifted from their impressive 38 year career.
