While we deal with the devestating news that Karova Lounge is closing, a few massive musos have announced they'll be playing Melbourne before the end of the year.
Firstly, Snow Patrol are coming back to Aus, and even if you saw them when they were here last year, you'll definitely want to check this concert out. This is their Live and Acoustic tour, which means you can enjoy all your Snow Patrol favs in a way you've never heard them before.
We are thrilled to announce we’ll be returning to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and Singapore and going to Malaysia for the first time in August and September for a special acoustic tour. Ticket info: https://t.co/vCiluTsKU2 pic.twitter.com/nfMhvuFCgv— Snow Patrol (@snowpatrol) 7 May 2019
Snow Patrol, performing as a three-piece of Gary Lightbody on vocals, Nathan Connolly on guitar and Johnny McDaid on piano, will be playing the Palais Theatre in St Kilda. Tickets through Live Nation here.
Next up, the mighty Morgan Evans has announced his triumphant return to his homeland. Since he was last performing here, Morgan's released his debut album 'Things That We Drink To', topped the country charts in Aus, taken over the radio in the US and won a stupid number of awards. He has very much earned a victory lap of Aus.
FINALLY!!! Australia!!! NZ!!! All shows on sale May 13. Join the mailing list for Pre-Sale info. Been waiting a long time for these ones! So stoked! pic.twitter.com/4KNcD8UayR— Morgan Evans (@Morgan_Evans) 7 May 2019
You can catch Morgan rocking out the Forum in Melbourne on October 22. Tickets for this one are through Ticketmaster.
It's set to be a few big months for Hayden James. The Aussie producer behind such bangers as 'Something About You' and 'Just a Lover' is releasing his debut album Between Us on Friday May 14th (next week!), he's set to blow the sock off Splendour in the Grass later in the year, and then he's setting off around the country on a massive tour.
That includes a show at The Forum down in Melbs on August 24. You can get your tickets through Hayden's official website here.
And finally, Eskimo Joe have announced they might be heading our way again. The boys from Perth have announced a one-off gig at the Fremantle Social Club in June, and according to guitarist Joel Quartermain, if it all goes well then a national tour will almost certainly follow. We'll keep you up to date once we know more!
As for Ballarat, well Jules and Kris this morning shared the latest goss on why Khalid is coming to Ballarat in November. Take a look here.
