AMERICAN alternative rock legends Live are bringing their world reunion tour to Pokolbin’s Roche Estate on November 18.

The band famous for their classic 1994 album Throwing Copper and its singles Lightning Crashes, I Alone and Selling The Drama endured an acrimonious split with frontman Ed Kowalczyk in 2009 and continued with new vocalist Chris Shinn on the 2014 album The Turn. 

It resulted in Kowalczyk launching legal action against his former bandmates for using the Live moniker.

However, in December the animosity was resolved and Live announced Kowalczyk was rejoining band for its first shows with the original line-up in eight years. 

Live last visited Australia in 2006 during their Songs From The Black Mountain tour. Joining Live at Roche Estate will be US rockers Lifehouse from Hanging By A Moment fame and The Calling, plus Australian band Thirsty Merc.

Tickets for Live are on sale from July 27.
