Aussie supergroup The Dead Daisies will join an all-star Australian line-up headlined by Jimmy Barnes for A Day On The Green in Victoria and South Australia in February.
The Dead Daisies are Australians Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix/Mink), with Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N’ Roses/Thin Lizzy), Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones) and Dizzy Reed (Guns ‘N’ Roses).
