stems tourAustralian garage rock legends The Stems are making a return to the stage for a series of dates in August 2024, five years after their last appearances.

Original members Dom Mariani, Julian Matthews and Dave Shaw will be joined by acclaimed guitarist Ashley Naylor (Even/Paul Kelly/The Church) to celebrate four decades since their first gig, at the Old Civic Theatre in Inglewood, Western Australia, supporting The Saints and The Triffids.

The Stems have attained legendary status in the Australian and international music scenes, roaring out of Perth with a sound and style that definitively captured the spirit and enthusiasm of ‘60s garage music. They achieved acclaim with a series of singles and Eps, including the timeless “At First Sight – Violet are Blue” LP (1987.) The group disbanded that year but reformed in 2003, playing to sold-out crowds nationwide.

Since then, they have continued to tour regularly in front of audiences across Australia, Europe, Japan, and the United States.

The Stems will be releasing a brand new single and a Live LP captured during an incendiary concert from the last tour.

Tickets are available from the venue websites or via Leicashow Presents.
