No way, get F**ked, F**k off! Grab hold of your budgie smugglers because just when you thought youâ€™d never see our faces againÂ ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMESÂ are heading back Down Under!
We are bringing you and your Uncle Bob the Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again?! 2023 Tour.
Donâ€™t worry New Zealand, you made our shit-list too, we will be heading across the Ditch, to you, in all our Gimmes glory!Â FEBRUARY 3 – FEBRUARY 18, 2023Â The Gimmes will be coming to a town near you!Â
For the uninitiated, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes consist ofÂ Joey CapeÂ (Lagwagon) on guitar,Â Chris ShiflettÂ (Foo Fighters) on lead guitar,Â Dave RaunÂ (Lagwagon) on the drums, Fat Wreck-head-honcho / NOFXÂ main-dudeÂ Fat Mike, and rounded out by the incomparable crooner,Â Spike Slawson. Together, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are an outfit that has always operated more like a beer-hall Pussycat Dolls than a regular mortal band.
When duty calls for one of the Gimmes to perform with their other band, rest assured a traveling Gimme will step in.Â John Reis, you guessed it, guitarist and lead vocals forÂ Rocket from the CryptÂ orÂ Jonny â€œ2 Bagsâ€ WickershamÂ fromÂ Social DistortionÂ will be filling in and on occasion or maybeÂ CJ RamoneÂ from a little band you may have heard of,Â The Ramones, will sub for Fat Mike. Most recently we saw the UK import,Â PinchÂ fromÂ The Damned, on the skins. You never know what star-studded lineup you will get at a Gimmes show, but you know it will not disappoint – soÂ be ready to see our Seppo faces again!
Â So, what is really left to say about punk supergroup and cover band extraordinaireÂ Me First and the Gimme Gimmes? After 7 studio albums, a live record and too many singles to count, theyâ€™ve tackled just about every genreÂ under the sun. Be it Motown, Country, show tunes, Japanese Pop (sung in Japanese!), the seasoned punk rock pros have triumphed on every occasion in a way only the Gimmes could. With such an extensive and wide ranging catalogue, where does one begin?… With a live show of course! The powerhouse continues and theyâ€™ll be singing ballads, show-tunes, Country and Motown tunes, so donâ€™t miss it!
