Foals

^^

When: Wednesday 17th July
Where: Hordern Pavilion

Supported by: Warpaint

An absolute math-rock juggernaut, FOALS will arrive in Australia in the middle of a creative frenzy that has produced not one, but two new records. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost (Part 1) was released in March, with Part 2 to follow later this year, signalling a return to the spasmodic angles of their debut Antidotes while simultaneously going further off-base than ever before. Support for these already gargantuan dates in Sydney and Melbourne will come courtesy of undulating indie rockers Warpaint.

Dave

^^

When: Thursday 18th July
Where: Metro
Theatre

Handsome Tours and Astral People are thrilled to announce that Dave will be returning to Australia this July. At just 20 years of age, Dave has quickly established himself as one of Britain's most exciting new talents. His debut album Psychodrama topped the UK charts in its first week, making it the fastest streamed British debut album of all time. Dubbed 'one of the most thoughtful, moving and necessary albums of 2019' by The Independent, a 'masterpiece' by the NME, and 'the boldest and best British rap album in a generation' by The Guardian, Psychodrama has since earnt a slew of 5 star reviews and international critical acclaim. Dave's meteoric rise to the top has been characterised by a series of boundary-breaking moments; from Drake remixing early single 'Wanna Know' in 2016 to becoming the youngest recipient of an Ivor Novello Award for his 7-minute politically charged 2017 track 'Question Time', to his street anthem 'Funky Friday' debuting at No.1 on the Official Singles Chart – the only British artist to do so in 2018. By continuing to boldly defy convention and refusing to compromise, Dave is constantly redefining the model of success within contemporary British music, and while the success of Psychodrama has firmly underlined this, it is just the beginning.

Daniel Thompson's Johnny Cash Live

^^

When: Friday 13th September
Where: The Concourse, Chatswood

In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, San Quentin. With the Folsom album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, At San Quentin continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music. During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song San Quentin which opens with the lyrics “San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me” and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the At San Quentin album. Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, A Boy Named Sue, which undeniably made Cash a global superstar and household name. Sue became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by the Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Women’. 50 Years on, Daniel Thompson’s Johnny Cash Live hits the road celebrating this legendary album and the career of the Man in Black. A brand new show featuring more than 35 hits, Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On includes the great moments of the San Quentin album plus hits and favourites spanning Cash’s entire 50 year recording career. After 6 National tours and having performed more than 175 shows, Johnny Cash Live has become lauded as one of Australia’s premier tribute acts. With powerhouse backing band, The Tennessee Express and led by Australia’s own Man in Black, Daniel Thompson, Johnny Cash Live presents an unforgettable night paying tribute to one of music’s most iconic and influential figures. With more than 60,000 tickets sold Australia wide, don’t miss your chance to see what has audiences on their feet and coming back each year for more.

The Dandy Warhols: 25th Anniversary Shows

When: Wednesday 6th November
Where: Enmore Theatre

Get Ready For A Massive Concussion of Rock and Roll with The Dandy Warhols as they’ve just announced they’ll be heading to Australia to perform a special run of shows to celebrate their 25th Year Anniversary. Born amidst the twilight years of the 90s grunge scene, The Dandy Warhols arose, and quickly stood a world apart from their contemporaries with their sonic concoction of psychedelia, garage rock and shoegaze - and an aptitude to never shy away from experimentation or getting a little weird. The band’s unfiltered creative streak earnt them a slew of hit singles like ‘Not if You Were The Last Junkie on Earth’, ‘Bohemian Like You’ and ‘We Used To Be Friends,’, alongside internationally renowned live performances and a duet with David Bowie. Earlier this year, the band returned in singularly freewheeling fashion, bubbling with off-kilter alt-pop sensibilities on their tenth album “Why You So Crazy”. A sound that’s been a quarter of a century in the making, their stylistic diversity is palpable with notes of psych-pop, high country-fried Americana, and gothic piano-propelled rumbas.These 25th Anniversary shows are going to be a defiant celebration of everything that’s brilliant about The Dandy Warhols! Grab your tickets early before these special shows sell out. “one of rock's wildest outfits.” – The Guardian.
