Not to be confused with similarly bald monster Mike Wazowski, Ed Kowalczyk is on the verge of a tour Down Under to mark two decades since the release of Live’s groundbreaking album Throwing Copper.

In the ensuing years, Kowalczyk decided he wanted to throw shade instead and sacked his band, but not the band name (cue a $2 million lawsuit). Kowalczyk will be playing tracks from his solo album Alive and new release The Flood And The Mercy alongside selections from the Live era at the Enmore Theatre on Tuesday 11 February. His reasoning: “I had no idea that songs like ‘I Alone’ and ‘Lightning Crashes’ would endure on the radio and in the hearts and minds of my fans for so many years after I wrote them.” We didn’t either, Ed. We didn’t either.

Visit the ironically named Live Nation for tickets.
