"2022 is shaping up to be one of the biggest years for live music in Australia in a long time," he said in a video.

"I'm really looking forward to getting back on stage with the band again and playing some rock and roll music for you.

"We've got two big dates for By the C festival - Coolangatta in February and Cronulla in March.

"I can't wait to play these shows with my good mates Jon Stevens, Mossy, Diesel and there'll be plenty more to be announced.

"I can't wait to see you on the road, it's going to be great - we're gonna play music again folks!"
