Headed back to Australia in March 2020 for their first live shows in three years are Arizona rockers Jimmy Eat World, who recently released their acclaimed tenth studio album, Surviving. The Jim Adkins-led outfit delivered their most personal, ambitious record to date with their latest listen, Surviving voted by Kerrang as one of 2019’s ‘50 Albums That Set Your World Ablaze’.
Adelaide fans: get in quick to secure your tickets, with the band’s show at The Gov on Monday 23 March almost sold out!
Jimmy Eat World will perform three headline solo shows while in AU, kicking the tour off at Metropolis in Fremantle on Monday 16 March, followed by The Tivoli, Brisbane on Thursday 19 March, and then wrapping up in Adelaide. They’ll also perform in Sydney and Melbourne as part of the Download Festival (not Frontier shows).
Touched by our recent bushfire crisis, Jimmy Eat World are also lending their support during their upcoming shows:
“Australia is one of our favourite places to play in the world and the fans there are second to none. What is happening with the fires this season is heartbreaking and in addition to hopefully bringing some joy to those who attend our shows, we will be lending our time and resources in any way possible to the relief efforts.”
Frontier Touring announce the addition of two special guests on the bill:
Joining in Fremantle is red hot WA legends Gyroscope. The four-piece delivered a slew of triple j classics in the late ‘90s/early 00’s: think Baby, I’m Getting Better, Snakeskin, and Fast Girl… With 7 x Hottest 100 entries between 2003-2010, the band were quickly a staple of Australia’s festival scene, playing two Big Day Outs, Groovin The Moo, Splendour In The Grass and plenty more. Gyroscope earned nine WAMi awards, 3.4 million+ streams on Spotify, a #1 album in Breed Obsession, all before stirring it up again six months ago when they dropped EP 4YRLV . Now, they’ll appear as special guest of Jimmy Eat World – fun fact, who they played with in 2003!
In Brisbane and Adelaide, Jimmy Eat World will be joined by fast rising Newcastle five-piece Eat Your Heart Out, who recently smashed it as part of the line-up for UNIFY Gathering (catch a glimpse of that here). Early 2019 saw the release of the band’s debut album Florescence, out via Fearless Records. The quintet – Caitlin Henry (vocals), Andrew Anderson (guitar), Will Moore (guitar), Dom Cant (bass), and Jake Cronin (drums) – showcase a searing power on tracks like Carousel and Closer To The Sun, earning over 2.7m streams on Spotify in 2019 and rising.
