Celebrate 40 years of Sydney’s legendary pop punk royalty 

Few Australian bands inspire as much well-deserved love as Sydney post-punk survivors Sunnyboys, and now you can watch the original lineup – frontman Jeremy Oxley, bassist Peter Oxley, guitarist Richard Burgman, and drummer Bil Bilson – perform at the Sydney Opera House to mark the fortieth anniversary of their legendary debut EP.

Ascendant post punk stars of almost mythical status, Sunnyboys burst onto the scene with their four track self-titled debut – featuring their signature smash, “Alone With You” – in December 1980, before their break up just four years later appeared to consign them, sporadic resurgences aside, to the rock ‘n’ roll wilderness. Since their unexpected, emotional reformation in 2012, the band has become an unmissable live act, consistently delivering a set of classics (“Happy Man”, “Love to Rule”, “Show Me Some Discipline”) that have lost none of their searing energy or power to move an audience. 

Marking the release of Sunnyboys 40, pairing their remastered, eponymous debut with four brand new recordings, this one-off performance is a joyous, life-affirming celebration of coming together and triumph over adversity, right when the world needs it most.
