Two of Australia's most critically acclaimed rock bands, THE LIVING END, and BIRDS OF TOKYO are geared up to deliver two days of rocking trackside tunes at the 2011 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix.
End the Grand Prix Weekend with a bang with The Living End
Sunday night will see The Living End thrill audiences as thousands flock from all corners of the Albert Park circuit to see local Melbourne boys Chris, Andy and Scott deliver an electrifying free post-race performance open to all ticket holders following the podium presentation.
The legendary trio will delight Grand Prix fans with their renowned rock performance in an increasingly rare Australian appearance, now that Chris Cheney is relocating to LA.
"We can't wait to be part of the festival action in front of our home crowd. We'll be there with the fans cheering on Aussie champ, Mark Webber," said lead singer Chris Cheney.
With a long list of Australian music accolades under their belt including ARIA, APRA and Jack awards, fans are eagerly awaiting The Living End's sixth album due for release mid-year, so the band is sure to rock the GP crowd with some highly anticipated new material.
For just $99* on Sunday you get F1 racing, loads of V8 Supercars action in a new race format, a host of support categories plus the incredible sounds of The Living End live in concert.Buy your tickets

Birds of Tokyo
2010 ARIA Award winners Birds of Tokyo (Best Rock Album) will headline the newly amped up Sidetracked music festival on Saturday night, playing tracks from their coveted self-titled platinum No. 1 album, including massive crowd favourites Plans and Wild At Heart.
After six ARIA Award nominations, plus a newly crowned title of ‘Band of the Year' from the GQ Awards in 2010, Birds of Tokyo's live show, which is currently receiving rave reviews on the Big Day Out tour, is set to shake up the GP crowd in March.
"We're thrilled to be playing at Sidetracked this year, it's the first time we've played during the GP festivities so we're really excited to have fun with the fans & check out all the awesome F1 action" says lead vocalist Ian Kenny.
Sidetracked will also feature a dazzling line-up of Australian live acts and DJs. Along with more acts soon to be announced plus unparalleled on-track action, the 2011 Formula 1™ Qantas Australian Grand Prix promises to be a heart racing festival in the fast lane!
