Three decades,  a few lineups and a bit of metal later, and they're heading back for a pre-Xmas special - here are the show details followed by some awesome old clips...

Suicidal Tendencies were never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on - building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skate-punk - before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. For almost 30 years, featuring a multitude of talented personnel Suicidal Tendencies have remained true to their vision of uncompromising independence and singular musical ferocity.

Many kiwis fondly remember legendary shows at both the Auckland Town Hall and Powerstation, and now’s the chance to get up close, personal and sweaty with one of the defining bands of a generation again.

Recent set-lists and reviews revel the band are just as ferocious and relevant as ever!

RW and CTS are providing the killer Christmas party with a line-up to kick summer 2012 in the face. Don’t miss this.
