The Return of the church

I make no secret of my love for all things Australian when it comes to music, and the church is right up there with the best of the Aussie rock contingent. While they really haven’t had a U.S. hit since “Under the Milky Way” the band has never stopped playing and touring, and last spring they played an acoustic tour in the States dubbed “An Intimate Space.”

Following that up in 2011, the band is coming back around for a special show, “Future Past Perfect” where they’ll continue their 30th Anniversary observances by performing three classic albums in their entirety in one night: Untitled #23, Priest=Aura, and Starfish, in that order (backwards chronologically but saving the biggest U.S. hit for the end of the night, apparently.). Too bad they are not coming anywhere close to South Carolina, or I’d be there. The reissue process that started last year will reportedly continue in 2011 also, with the older two albums featured in this tour getting the deluxe treatment.
