Switchfoot (USA) @ Luna Park - Big Top

Description:

“High-voltage buzz-saw riffs and irresistible melodic hooks” – Rolling Stone



After a blistering East-coast tour in 2010, Switchfoot are back again for a very special, one-off Sydney show this April. With comparisons to arena-rocking bands like Coldplay and Snow Patrol, the San Diego quintet has cemented their place in modern rock and has developed a well-deserved reputation for a very impressive live show along the way.

Rarely does a rock band combine explosive guitars with an intense longing for meaning. With seven critically acclaimed albums, one reaching double platinum, Grammy nominations and countless other awards under their belt, Switchfoot have never been one to let genres and categorisation hold them back. Switchfoot play their diversity as strength and deliver punchy rock music with their signature positivity and uplifting sound that is “full of effortlessly arching melodies and textures that shift in continual, sensual motion” (hollywoodjesus.com). Frontman Jon Foreman’s crowd interaction makes for an involving and intimate experience, while his speaker-climbing antics and the band’s trio of guitars guarantee fans a rocking good time.



“Not only are the guys great musicians and songwriters, but they consistently put on a great performance.” Filled with soaring rock and roll anthems and crunchy, multi-layered guitar riffs, with a few ballads thrown in for good measure and a live DVD that went platinum, a Switchfoot show is definitely one not to be missed!



Their all ages’ show will take place on 21st April 2010 at the Big Top, Luna Park.
