As lifelong rugby fans, the band who enjoyed a top ten hit in 1997 with the single ‘Australia, this seemed a one-off opportunity to combine their mutual love of the sport and the continent. The trio commented: “As massive rugby fans the chance to visit one of our favourite countries - play some gigs and watch the British and Irish lions play Australia is an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity.
