Short Stack announce a big reunion tour because what year is it? 2009?
The Stack is back this July, playing theatre shows with fellow cult heroes Between You & Me.
Despite us entering a new decade in 2020, the music industry is seemingly keen on us not so much staying there but going back in time a few years, revisiting the ol’ late 00s as nostalgia rips through the kids who are finally beginning to understand why their parents keep talking about the “good ol’ days” of music (but seriously, today’s music is - for the most part - bloody good). If The Veronicas having a sudden sense of viral fame thanks to a resurgence of Untouched isn’t enough to convince you, let’s take it back to the ARIA year-end charts of 2009, led by The Black Eyed Peas - who were just here for R&B Fridays - and the Pussycat Dolls, who are incoming this April for the So Pop! Festival.
The point we’re getting at here is that somehow, a time travel machine has taken the country back to the late 00s and the next evidence we have to show that comes this morning, with Short Stack – yep, THE Short Stack – announcing the long-awaited reunion tour that has been teased across their socials for much of the last week.
This July, the group will reform for their first shows since their 2015 Homecoming reunion album, playing theatres alongside local punk favourites Between You & Me. All the capital cities are there - the tour will stop in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide then Perth – with all shows bar Melbourne being all ages, meaning that all the kids that were 13 singing along to every one of Short Stack’s lyrics – who’d now be 23 years old – can bring their kids along for the ride too, wholesome.
Anyway, we’ll jump right to it. Lose yourself in the nostalgia show of Short Stack below, then catch them at the following dates across the July. Then, if we’re continuing this strange trend of reviving Australian acts from our teens, let’s make Kisschasy and Rogue Traders the next ones up. Tickets go on sale Thursday, February 13th.
