We totally saw this coming – Jamie xx will play a handful of solo headline shows while he tours Australia with his band The xx next month. Jamie will play an intimate gig in Perth the night before The xx kick off their tour, as well as late shows in clubs in Melbourne and Sydney.
The past few years have seen a meteoric rise for the producer, who has firmly established himself as one of the world’s hottest properties. In 2011, he crafted the underground hit Far Nearer and collaborated with Gil Scott-Heron on the album We’re New Here, a re-envisioned version of Scott-Heron’s 2010 masterpiece I’m New Here.
Tickets to all shows go on sale tomorrow at midday via Handsome Tours. Limited tickets are also available for The xx’s shows in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Jamie xx’s last solo tour sold out in seconds, so these are sure to be hot property – get in quick!
