Sublime With Rome

Bruce Mason Centre


Sublime With Rome are returning to Australia and New Zealand after a sold-out 2012 tour - this time also stopping off in Auckland to treat their NZ fan base!

Featuring founding members of Sublime along with new frontman, singer/guitarist Rome, Sublime with Rome will reaffirm their affinity with Aussie fans, and reintroduce themselves and Sublime’s classic hits to a New Zealand audience in March 2017.

One of the most notable and successful ska-punk bands of all time, Sublime has sold over 17 million albums worldwide with songs like ‘What I Got’  and ‘Doin’ Time’ in constant radio rotation across the globe. 

Formed in Long Beach in 1988, Sublime’s final performance was in the spring of 1996 after the death of original singer Bradley Nowell. In 2008,  Rome, a 20-year-old northern California native, was introduced to Sublime founding members Gaugh and Wilson. In 2011, a handful of jam sessions led to an impromptu show at a small club in Nevada,  flooring a packed house crowd. The trio later performed a one-off at the Smokeout Festival and was a surprise special guest at the infamous KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show, before officially dubbing themselves Sublime with Rome.

In 2015, Sublime with Rome resurfaced with Sirens, the effervescent follow-up to the band’s 2011 debut Yours Truly. "We had more time, we know each other better now, and we're even better musicians," said Rome Ramirez last year.

With bassist and co-founder Eric Wilson anchoring the group, Sublime With Rome are armed with a sound that makes a real statement - their statement. 

And while Ramirez pays the utmost respect to the original Sublime entity, he knows Sublime With Rome are worthy of fans’ undivided attention. “I want fans to say, 'I went to see Sublime With Rome and the new album is awesome. We can do that by continuing to make better and better records," he says.
