The Superjesus Sumo 20th Anniversary Tour

This year marked 20 years since the release of their multi award-winning album ‘Sumo’ so Adelaide rockers The Superjesus stopped by the Barwon Club as part of their highly anticipated ‘Sumo 20th Anniversary Tour’.
The South Australian Music Hall of Famers, armed with a show spanning two hour-long sets immediately had the room at the B.C shaking, opening with smash hit ‘Down Again’.
Scattering the entire ‘Sumo’ album throughout the night, frontwoman Sarah McLeod had the audience eating out of her hand with a commanding performance. Having been a fan of this band for 20 years myself, The Superjesus’ capability to mix great melody with a heavy, thundering sound is always a treat live, and Geelong was no exception.
Track after track the band took the audience and themselves on a trip through time, having not played many of the songs live since 1998. And they killed it, proving why decades on they are still one of the best live acts in the country and are guaranteed to leave punters wanting more.
