AIRBOURNE ANNOUNCE SPRING 2020 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR DATES, NEW STUDIO ALBUM “BONESHAKER” OUT NOW
Australian rockers Airbourne will embark on the first North American tour in support of their riff-roaring new album (and fifth overall) Boneshaker, out now via Spinefarm Records. The spring tour kicks off April 20th in New York City and concludes on May 23rd in Montreal. The trek includes appearances at several major rock festivals, such as Sonic Temple and Epicenter. All dates are below.
“We’re mega pumped up to the max to bring the Boneshaker World Tour to the USA,” says frontman and guitarist Joel O’Keeffe. “We’ve been blazing non-stop across Europe and Australia and now we’re coming your way USA to kick your ass.”
For a taste of what’s to come when Airbourne crash domestic shores in 2020, check out the new song, Backseat Boogie, here. Listen to the equally combustible title track, here, and my favorite song, She Gives Me Hell, here.

Finally! Welcome to America! 😉
They played our shores back in 2016, I was lucky enough to see them. Super loud, super energetic, tons of Marshall stacks on the stage. It immediately transported me back to my youth, which were far better times, imho.
Oh yeah that’s right, can’t believe I forgot! But wasn’t it only a couple of cities? At least this time they’re hitting the great state of Florida! 😉
Now here is a band to silent those naysayers that proclaim Rock is Dead!!
If they are touring anywhere near you, and you did not get a chance to see the last go around, I implore you to go.
