Who'd have thought we'd end 2021 with OG West Coast punks the Circle Jerks playing a show in Orlando on the same stage regularly graced by the Orlando Philharmonic?

But here we are. A reunited and rejuvenated Circle Jerks have announced a tour to belatedly celebrate the 40th anniversary of their debut album, Group Sex. And that eight-month tour will be touching down in Orlando in the now-rarefied atmosphere of the Plaza Live on Saturday, Dec. 18.

The band's ranks currently include classic lineup members Keith Morris and Greg Hutson and newer Zander Schloss and Joey Castillo.

Touring support for the Orlando show comes from Municipal Waste and — pinch us — hardcore icons Negative Approach. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 23, at 10 a.m. through AXS and will run you $29.50-$49.50.
