Metric Announce Australian Tour December 2013

Written by Greg Moskovitch on October 22, 2013

Formidable Canadian dance-rockers Metric are riding an unstoppable freight train of momentum since the 2012 release of their fifth studio album, Synthetica. To celebrate the success of the album, the group have announced a run of Australian headlining tour dates.

Known for their dynamic live shows and frontwoman Emily Haines‘ electric stage presence and unmistakable vocals, the band will be capitalising on the whirlwind of fan and critical excitement surrounding their latest singles Youth Without Youth, Breathing Underwater, and Synthetica.

Ever-committed to their fans, the band have released the following statement explaining how Metric do ticketing differently:

“Wherever possible, we negotiate with the promoters of our concerts to take control of the best tickets to each of our shows and reserve them to be sold exclusively through our website, so we can offer the best seats in the house directly to fans, at the best possible prices by saving you the third party service charges.

“Unfortunately, we can usually only get about 10% of the total tickets available to each concert, so they tend to go fast and are available on a first come, first served basis. To be the first to find out when these tickets go up on sale, sign-up for free to the band’s mailing list on the top right.”

The tour kicks off at Perth’s Metro City on Saturday, 7th December, before sweeping over to the East Coast for shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, and Sydney. Readers can check below for all details to finish off the year with one of indie rock’s most galvanising bands.

General public tickets on sale at 10am Wednesday, 30th October. My Live Nation members can nab tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale, which begins 3pm Friday, 25th October until tickets sell out. Readers can sign up at the official Live Nation website.

UPDATE: Joining Metric on their upcoming Australian tour will be Sydney rising stars Glass Towers. The band have had an incredible year, with 2013 seeing them gain unstoppable momentum, as well as airplay and accolades, on the strength of their debut LP Halcyon Days.
