KIM PETRAS ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL SHOWS AND VENUE UPGRADES!

Having sold out both headline shows in Australia within just hours of going on sale, Kim Petras announces additional Australian shows and increases venues sizes to keep up with ticket demand.

Fans in Brisbane will now have the chance to catch Kim Petras at Eatons Hill Hotel, where she will be supporting UK pop sensation Rita Ora, alongside Sammi Constantine.

Sydney and Melbourne fans that missed out on the first release, will now have a second chance at snatching up tickets with a venue upgrade in Sydney and an additional show in at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club.

The additional dates come after Kim’s recent announcement for the 2019 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The German pop-star, who is already well-known for transitioning publicly at a very young age, took the music industry by storm, landing the #1 spot on Spotify’s Viral Top 50, collaborating with Charli XCX, Cheat Codes and SOPHIE, and securing tour supports with Troye Sivan.

Fans in both Sydney and Melbourne that are lucky enough to snap up tickets, will have the rare opportunity of catching global hits like ‘1,2,3 dayz up (Feat. SOPHIE)’, ‘I Don’t Want It All’ and ‘Heart Break’ in intimate venues, unlikely to be booked again.

 

I can’t wait to finally get out to Australia’ Said Kim Petras, ‘I’ve always wanted to head over to check out the Sydney Mardis Gras. Performing shows while I’m in the country is another huge plus!”

The legendary Sevendust returns to Australia and New Zealand in April 2019 – presented by MJR Presents and 24/7 Metal and Rock station/app The FactionSevendust are coming to celebrate their 2018 Rise Records release All I See Is War – a record that has energised fans all over the world.

The iconic five-piece hard rock/metal outfit will visit Auckland, NZ’s Powerstation Tuesday 23rd April, then head on to Australia, kicking off the AU leg Thursday 25th April at The Tivoli, Brisbane, then on to The Metro in Sydney on Friday 26 April, The Forum in Melbourne on the 27th, The Gov in Adelaide on the 29th and then finish the tour in Perth at Capitol on the 30th April.

Hysteria Mag said that All I See is War is “…heavy, angry yet vulnerable … the reasons why Sevendust continue to resonate with an ever-widening audience“. Guitarist for the band, Clint Lowery, says of their extremely dedicated fanbase – “We take pride in the connection we have – We’ve always been a people’s band. We’re typical guys who just happen to make a career on stage. With this relationship to the fans, we realize how much we need each other, so we push ourselves to deliver. We don’t stop. We keep moving.

Sevendust first forged a familial tie amongst each other in 1994 that translated into one of the most die-hard audiences in the game. To this day, the connection between fans and the GRAMMY® Award-nominated gold-certified hard rock outfit only grows stronger. For their twelfth full-length and first release for Rise Records All I See Is War, the quintet—Lajon Witherspoon [lead vocals], Clint Lowery [lead guitar, backing vocals], John Connolly [rhythm guitar, backing vocals], Vince Hornsby [bass], and Morgan Rose [drums] – did the best thing they could possibly do to combat all of the division in the streets and on social media; they went and made a Sevendust record—just bigger, ballsier, and bolder than before – and they couldn’t be more excited to bring it to Australia and New Zealand.

A trifecta of now-classic gold albums—Sevendust [1997], Home [1999], and Animosity [2001]— ignited their journey. Known as an equally intense and unforgettable live force, they’ve consistently packed houses around the world and decimated stages everywhere from Rock on the Range and Woodstock to OZZfest and Shiprocked! 2015’s Kill The Flaw represented a high watermark. Bowing at #13 on the Billboard Top 200, it scored their highest debut on the respective chart since 2010 and marked their fifth consecutive Top 10 on the Top Rock Albums Chart and third straight Top 3 on the Hard Rock Albums Chart. Most impressively, the lead single “Thank You” garnered a nomination in the category of “Best Metal Performance” at the 2016 GRAMMY® Awards, a career first. All I See Is War represents yet another new beginning and new point of connection for fans.

MEET & GREET TERMS & CONDITIONS

“Playing in Australia has been sorely missing in our 50 year career, so we of Tower of Power are extremely excited and anxious to come ‘Down Under’ and bring our best and most exciting shows to the continent we’ve been longing to play for all these years. Can’t wait!!!” – Bandleader for Tower of Power,Emilio Castillo.

Since their formation in 1968 as the Motowns, Oakland soul band Tower of Power has been known for their legendary five-piece horn section, which led to songs like “So Very Hard To Go” or “What Is Hip?” and over 25 acclaimed albums that have taken the band around the world, several times over.

In 2019, Tower of Power will return to Australia with a collection of classic hits and music from their first new record in over 15 years.

CAST

CAST TO BRING ‘GREATEST HITS
TOUR’ TO AUSTRALIA IN 2019

Due to unforseen circumstances, 90s Britpop legends CASThave been forced to reschedule their Australian shows.

Originally set to kick off in early February, the trip down under will now be postponed until October, when fans will get the chance to hear the band’s greatest hits, plus other firm crowd favourites.

 We were all dead excited about getting over to Australia and finally performing for our fans down underSaid John Power. I know we’re going to want to make up for lost time and show you all what a great live band we are, so I’m expecting the band to be on fire when we get down there in October!”

Originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded guitar bands of all time, The La’sand Shack, Cast released four albums, had ten top 10 singles and were described by Noel Gallagher as ‘a religious experience’ after seeing them live, before disbanding in 2001.

Their 1995 hit record ‘All Change’ became the biggest selling debut album of all timefor Polydor Records, and helped the band secure fan bases around the world. A decade after splitting, the bands original line-up reunited with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) for their new record ‘Troubled Times’.

 

Tickets to the bands original shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth will still be valid, however fans that can no longer attend shows in October will be entitled to a refund.

RITA ORA ADDS KIM PETRAS AND SAMMI CONSTANTINE TO AUSTRALIAN TOUR

With just days until her national Australian tour kicks off, pop sensation Rita Ora adds both Kim Petras and Sammi Constantine as special guest for her Australian shows.

Kim Petras, who was announced to perform at the iconic Sydney Mardi Gras, and just recently sold out her intimate Australian headline shows moments after going on sale, will now join Rita Ora as a special guest at Rita Ora’s Brisbane show at Eatons Hill.

Australia’s own Sammi Constantine, who’s recent singles ‘Watch Yourself’ and ‘Feel Your Body’ have received praise around the country, was also selected by Rita Ora to join her on her capital city run of Australia. Sammi will support Rita Ora at all Australian shows.

Having performed on some of the world’s biggest shows, including ‘Kimmel’ and ‘Ellen’ and the most prestigious stages, from Glastonbury to The White House and even The Vatican, the Kosovo-born, London-raised pop prodigy will land in Australia on March 1 where she’ll showcase hits from her most recent record ‘Phoenix’ as well as fan favourites.

Having become one of the world’s most globally recognised and successful women in pop music since signing to Jay Z’s ‘Roc Nation’ in her teens, Rita Ora has continued her meteoric rise; with hit singles including the Drake-penned “R.I.P”, “Doing It” with Charli XCX, ‘Your Song’, ‘Let You Love Me’ and the Fifty Shades Freed hit ‘For You’ all proving why Rita is one of pop music’s most prominent figures.
