Chocolate Starfish set to kick off massive 30th Anniversary Tour (NSW, VIC, QLD, TAS & WA) in 2024

(Tuesday February 20th, 2024) The countdown is on to the spectacular 30th Anniversary Chocolate Starfish ‘Best of Everything’ tour, with the band releasing their full tour schedule which will kick off from June 21, 2024 taking in five states nationally.

The tour will celebrate the very best of everything Chocolate Starfish – the albums, the songs, and the exhilarating performances – with twenty-four high energy shows across four months.  Tickets are available now at

“We’re doing some big shows in grand venues like the State Theatre in Sydney, and will also do some smaller regional shows that will have a more intimate vibe – and include places close to our hearts like my home region of Shepparton.  30 years in we know where our fans are, and the spaces we love to work.  We can’t wait to hit the road,” said electrifying front man Adam Thompson.

“It’s a real pinch me moment when we walk out to huge crowds.  30 years in you might think crowds would be dwindling, but we’re finding quite the opposite.  Our fan base is growing – and I think that’s because we’ve evolved and give our fans a very physical, theatrical show.”

Featuring the hits of their self-titled debut album and favourites from Box, Spider, Primitive and The Beautiful Addiction along with stand-out selections from their brilliant Classic Album Series – Bat Out of Hell, INXS Kick and Adam Thompson’s Bohemian Rhapsody Concert, this celebratory tour promises – and will deliver – everything and more.

“So many iconic Aussie bands were formed in the 80’s and 90’s and were an inspiration to us.  There’s not a huge list of them still performing regularly like we are, and with most of their long-term members.  We’re great mates and all love performing live – anyone who has been to a Starfish show can feel that,” said Adam Thompson.

Still smoking from the 2023 tour of their acclaimed Bat Out of Hell show, Chocolate Starfish are showing no signs of slowing down as they prepare to celebrate their 30-year anniversary.

With a dedicated and adoring fan base, Chocolate Starfish are welcoming younger generations to gigs, with high energy performances cementing a fresh fan base.

“We love that we’re winning new fans with every performance and welcome the latecomers – or next gen – with open arms. Our audience is the centrepiece of the Starfish experience,” adds Thompson.

“We perform with them, not for them. They deserve the ‘best of everything’ – so that’s what we will give them.”

The Best of Everything tour promises audiences everything they know and love about a Chocolate Starfish show – pure, unrivalled entertainment…and the joy of the unexpected.

“Sometimes it feels like these first 30 years, we’ve just been warming up,” muses Thompson, who will celebrate his 60th birthday before going on the Best of Everything tour that will mark half his lifetime with Chocolate Starfish. 

“This truly is The Best of Everything we have to offer. For now.”

Chocolate Starfish is made up of the incredible talent and energy of Adam Thompson (lead vocals), John Nixon (bass), Darren Danielson (drums), Norm Falvo (keyboard) and Zakk Zedras (guitar).
