Check out some of the Australian music superstars headed our way from June! Our Gig Guide has a comprehensive list.
James Reyne + Mark Seymour join forces
The live relationship between James Reyne and Mark Seymour began back in 2007, when they embarked on a massive 90 date national tour, showcasing an extraordinary catalogue of some of Australia’s most loved songs. The 2016 incarnation will be a limited national run, with Mark and James hitting the stage both together and alone, performing classics from Hunters & Collectors, Australian Crawl and each of their extensive solo works. They’ll hit Twin Towns Friday 12 August. Tickets through twintowns.com.au.
Gow + Kelly join forces too
While we’re on the topic of collaborations, two of Australia’s contemporary singers, songwriters and dreamers are hitting the road together for a double-header in May. It’s the first time Alex Gow and Dan Kelly will be touring solo together – though neither is a stronger to the road. Kelly’s Leisure Panic was one of our favourite albums of 2015, so you know where you’ll find us. At Miami Shark Bar on Saturday 11 June or Byron Theatre on Sunday 12 June.
Get them India
British India must have a thing for the Gold Coast. They sure seem to be here regularly enough. Though a winter trip to the GC is always a good idea when you live in Melbourne, right? Their last show sold out, which is no surprise given they’re one of the country’s most popular and hardworking bands. Their last album Nothing Touches Me was their fourth album in a row to reach top 10 in the ARIA charts. They hit Soundlounge on Friday 8 July – and a word to the wise – tickets are $10 cheaper pre-sold than at the door. More at soundlounge.com.au.
Parkway Drive’s all Aussie Adventure
Metalcore merchants Parkway Drive will hit Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre on Sunday 19 June. With five full-length albums under their belt – the latest four reaching top 10 in the ARIA charts, fans are sure to be stoked. The band event let their fans name the tour. Tickets on sale now via Ticketek.
