Grinspoon ready to rock Newcastle


Grinspoon can’t wait to hit the stage and unleash their set at Scene and Heard this weekend. 

The Aussie rockers are returning to the region to headline the local festival – and they’re promising to deliver a great show. 

“[People can expect] the most amazing rock show ever,” bass player Joe Hansen said with a laugh.  

“Our set list is built around all the Grinspoon classics, all the favourites with a couple of lesser-known songs thrown in, so it should be good fun. 

“We’ll just bring our best to the show, we’re really looking forward to it. 

“We love Newcastle, we love playing down there – we can’t wait to get on stage.” 

It’s lucky they’re the last band to play in the line-up, because it seems like they may be a hard act to follow.  

Beforehand, Novocastrians will be treated to an incredible night with Spiderbait, Rat Cat, Frenzal Rhomb, Cog, Tumbleweed, The Porkers, Caligula and more.  

Hansen says there is nothing quite like performing on stage.  

“We did do a show a little while ago, it was our first one in ages and just the feeling of being back was amazing,” he said. 

“It’s almost like it’s brand new again for us because it is exciting and it’s something we can’t take for granted.” 

When it comes to performing in the city, Hansen said there were too many highlights to choose a favourite memory.  

“We’ve always had a good crowd in Newcastle, and we’ve done heaps of good shows there over the years,” he told the Newcastle Weekly. 

“Something that sticks out is that at one point we had a few of the well-known NRL football players come along to a few shows who were quite entertaining – there are lots of legends who live down there and they’re good fun.” 

The 18+ event will take place at Wickham Park on Sunday 13 March from noon. 

With no capacity limits and people allowed to sing and dance, organisers say it’ll be an event to remember. 

There will also be plenty of food on offer.
