Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce that Britpop legends Supergrass will tour Australia in April and May. This five-date run will be their first headline shows on our shores in twelve years and will coincide with the band’s recently-announced six scheduled performances at Groovin The Moo festivals across Australia.
The exciting news follows the band’s announcement in September 2019 that they were reforming after a ten-year split to tour the United Kingdom, Europe and North America in celebration of their seminal debut album I Should Coco’s 25th anniversary. Just moments before the band’s surprise reunion show at Glastonbury’s Pilton Party in September 2019, frontman Gaz Coombes told NME:
“We’ve had an intense week of rehearsing to get back into the swing and it’s sounding pretty amazing. We just plugged in and started playing, and you just feel those moves that we all play together. It’s like our legs are tied with rope. It’s quite bizarre, but I guess that chemistry never goes away.”
The band’s surprise reunion show was well-received by fans and critics alike, with Evening Standard declaring Supergrass ‘back in action and strong as ever’.
The English rockers will bring their string of hit singles including Lenny, Going Out, Richard III, Pumping On Your Stereo and Sun Hits The Sky to audiences at Perth’s Metropolis Fremantle, on Monday 27 April, Melbourne’s The Forum on Wednesday 29 April, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Tuesday 5 May, Wollongong’s Waves on Wednesday 6 May and The Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane on Thursday 7 May.
Australian alt-rockers Rocket Science will be joining Supergrass at all shows. The two bands are no strangers to sharing the stage; Rocket Science, having supported Supergrass on their 2002 Australian tour before going on to open for the band at many of their shows across the globe. The Melbourne band are known and loved for their signature blend of garage, psych and post-punk, showcased in iconic tracks like Burn In Hell, One Robot and Being Followed. Rocket Science released Snake in August 2019, their first album since disbanding eleven years earlier, and spent the months that followed touring the country with their renowned live show.
Don’t miss your chance to experience one of Supergrass’ first Australian performances in more than ten years.
Tickets on sale from Thursday 20 February from 11am local time from Frontier Touring.
