Orbital

^^

When: Thursday 28th February
Where: Metro Theatre

Dance Music Legends Orbital bring their spectacular live show to Australia in February 2019 for their first tour in over 7 years. There are few acts in Electronic Dance Music that are as ingenious and influential as Orbital. From blissed out moments to jarred and broken beats, their sound is informed by a wide range of genres like ambient, electro, punk, and film scores and with it they’ve had a string of critically praised albums, chart success and frequent features in film soundtracks - but all outshone by their spectacular live performance. Since reuniting last year, the dance duo, aka brothers Phil and Paul Hartnoll, have announced they’re back for good – with their first new music in 5 years. 'Monsters Exist’, Orbital’s ninth studio album, takes their signature sound forward into a new and fascinating phase, drawing inspiration from the international political landscape all the way back from Paul and Phil’s pre-rave squat-punk roots right up to the volatile tensions and erratic rhetoric of today. “A little bit political, a little bit cheeky and definitely fun to dance to”- Billboard. The Hartnolls have rebuilt one of electronic music’s best-loved partnerships. Time has refreshed Orbital creatively and these leading figures of dance music are bringing their groundbreaking live show back to Australia. See why The Guardian called their live Glastonbury show ‘One of the 50 key events in the history of dance music’, Q Magazine praised them as one of the ’50 Bands to See Before You Die’ and MixMag ranked them as one of the ‘Top 10 Greatest Dance Acts of All Time’. EDM enthusiasts, this is a show not to be missed!

Millencolin Australian Tour

^^

When: Friday 8th March
Where:
UNSW Roundhouse

MILLENCOLIN fans are always waging wars, pitting so many of their brilliant records against each other to see which comes out the victor.

Forming in 1994 amidst a cavalcade of circle pits and tattoos, GOLDFINGER were at the forefront of the exploding mid Nineties Punk scene, and on the back of their self-titled debut garnered a massive worldwide fan base. Consistently throwing one of the most exciting, energetic live punk rock shows you’ll ever witness, GOLDFINGER are announcing their first Australian tour in over 7 years. Punk Rockers unite…this killer double bill of MILLENCOLIN and GOLDFINGER will see twisted flesh, flailing limbs and a sea of swarming bodies across Australia next March!

Matt Corby: Rainbow Valley Tour

When: Friday 29th March
Where: Hordern Pavilion

On the week of the release of his triple j feature album Rainbow Valley, MATT CORBY announces his first headline tour in two years for March and April 2019.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 11am, Wednesday October 31 until 11am, Friday November 2.

Matt and his band will play songs from the new album to Australian audiences for the first time, playing his first headline shows since the Telluric Tour in 2016. Set to start in January, the upcoming UK and European Rainbow Valley Tour has already sold in Oslo and Stockholm, with a second date added at London’s iconic Forum. For a decade, the multi-platinum-selling musician has been pushing his own boundaries, embracing a journey of self-discovery that’s seen him wrestle a few pre-conceptions and stare down his share of demons. With two ARIA Song of the Year awards and a #1 debut album behind him, Corby can genuinely lay claim to some hard-earned perspective. Now we see a new chapter in Corby’s life with the release of his much anticipated second album. Recorded in the idyllic surroundings of Byron Bay’s Music Farm studios, Rainbow Valley will be released this Friday November 2. Lush, multi-textured and sparked by hints of both old soul and futuristic psychedelia, Rainbow Valley is, in Corby’s words “joyous music”, but it also has the depth and perspective of an artist who understands you can’t just take the good times for granted, you have to earn them. The sparkling first single No Ordinary Life, and the bare-bones ballad All Fired Up and current single All That I See have received widespread acclaim and give fans a taste of what to expect on Corby’s stunning new album.

During that time, the singer/songwriter/guitarist and his bandmates have played hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world and built a devoted following. Lukas’ profile continued to rise when he contributed three songs and heavenly vocals to his dad Willie Nelson’s 2012 album, Heroes, their voices blending with potent DNA.

Promise of The Real recently released their “Forget About Georgia” E.P. with a guest appearance by the angelic vocal duo Lucius, and a stunning cover of the David Bowie classic “Life On Mars?" Drawing lineage from his father, Willie Nelson and surrogate uncles like Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings, J.J. Cale and Neil Young, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have developed into a devastating, ‘can’t miss’ live act. With a bounty of invaluable experience under their belt, expect Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real to deliver an indelible blast of cosmic country-soul, the sound of American music will be reborn in Melbourne and Sydney this April.

Nina Nesbitt: Australian 2019 Tour

^^

When: Tuesday 28th May
Where: Metro Theatre

Making waves across the globe with recent singles ‘The Best You Had’ and ‘Loyal To Me’, streaming sensation NINA NESBITT has today announced a national headline tour of Australia in support of her brand-new album “The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change” – out now on Cooking Vinyl. The UK Pop starlet will begin her tour at Sydney’s Metro Theatre on May 28 before heading to Melbourne and Brisbane on May 29 and 30, respectively. The Nina Nesbitt of 2018 is not the Nina of 2013. The new album has been three years in the making and bears no hint of compromise as she demonstrates her unique talent for acute lyrical observations and ear-worm melodies. Heralding a musical change of direction with more obvious pop influences, the album is a scintillating journey through a whole range of genres and moods. “This is the album I always wanted to make on my own terms. It’s an honest account of somebody in their early ‘20s, giving a real window into their often-ever-changing life,” Nina says. Imagined within the four walls of her Fulham (London) bedroom, Nina would arrive home after studio sessions with other musicians and continue writing for herself late into the night. “At that time, I was a songwriter for other artists, and I missed writing autobiographical songs, alone, for myself,” she says. The results speak for themselves. Billboard magazine exclaimed it to be, “an iridescent work of pop mastery, showcasing Nesbitt’s proficiency as a songwriter, vocalist and producer,” and The Independent stating that, “Nesbitt offers blunt songwriting in a genre that far too often deals in vague clichés.” Released on Cooking Vinyl, the new album has been a long-time in the making and comes loaded with highly acclaimed singles such as the latest single ‘Colder’, produced by Fraser T Smith (Adele/Stormzy/Drake/Florence & the Machine). Her first single ‘The Best You Had’ has accumulated 47 million streams and 2.2 million plays on YouTube – with Taylor Swift even adding the song to her “favourite songs” iTunes playlist upon its release. Having grown-up in a small village just outside Edinburgh, Nina Nesbitt enjoyed a whirlwind of success with the “Peroxide” album, but she was soon ready to move on. An organic evolution, her 2016 track ‘Chewing Gum’ was the sound of her breaking out of her comfort zone and fully indulging her love of pop. Her desire to challenge herself continued with the low-key “Life in Colour” EP which found Nina writing emotional and sometimes dark stories that were inspired by experiences which fans had sent to her. Still only 24-years-old, Nina Nesbitt has found a way to make it work for her in an industry that often doesn’t give you the time to settle into the artist you want to be. Having toured extensively across the UK, USA and Europe with artists such as Jake Bugg, Ed Sheeran, Rudimental and Lewis Capaldi,Nina has become an accomplished performer with an ability to court fans from all over, including celebrity A-listers Chloë Grace Moretz and Taylor Swift. Now, it’s Australia’s turn to witness the next big thing in British pop music with three headline shows that are bound to impress.
