THE legend of the Ramones lives on in Australia this May, when Richie Ramone hits our shores.   

They were the punk band that blew the minds of the Sex Pistols and the Clash.  

Now Richie, the one Ramone who's Too Tough To Die, brings that blistering backbeat to venues in Byron Bay, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, playing the tracks he wrote and recorded with Da Bruddas as well as new material that rocks like leather jackets, ripped knee jeans and battered Converse.  

If you never saw the Ramones, this is your one chance to see Richie Ramone with all his power and spirit of CBGBs in the 70s.   

Richie Ramone is the fastest, most powerful drummer who ever played with the legendary punk rock band the Ramones.   

He joined the Ramones in 1983 and first appeared with the band on their Subterranean Jungle tour.  

Richie performed in over 500 shows around the world with the Ramones and wrote several critically-acclaimed and fan-favorite songs for the albums Animal Boy, Too Tough to Die and Halfway to Sanity.  

Punk rock icon, Joey Ramone remarked that "[Richie] saved the band as far as I'm concerned.  

He's the greatest thing to happen to the Ramones.

He put the spirit back in the band."  

If you're not cool enough to know the band and the songs or see Richie Ramone tear it up live, you'll never be cool enough to wear the t-shirt.
