Powderfinger Announce Additional Shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Cairns

Written by John Ritchie on May 5, 2010

Due to overwhelming demand Powderfinger have announced additional shows on their ‘Sunsets’ Farewell Tour in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Cairns.

From the press release:
“We were simply blown away”, Paul Piticco, Powderfinger’s manager said.  “After a massive response from the on-sale, and with the shows selling out way faster than we could have expected, we started to get emails and calls from fans of the band asking for further dates as they’d missed out on tickets.  We convened a quick meeting last weekend and decided to add one final lap of cap city shows that would, hopefully, meet the band’s fans’ needs.”

“We have placed these shows on weekend nights, wherever possible, to make it easier for anyone in regional areas to make it to these last city shows. We certainly hadn’t planned these extra dates but are thrilled to be playing to more fans across the country.  These will be the last ever shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide with the band ultimately finishing the tour in their hometown of Brisbane”.

These additional shows will make it three shows each in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth after the first and second previously unannounced shows all sold out in less than 30 minutes, two in Adelaide, where tickets sold out to the first show by mid afternoon, and two in Cairns.

Tickets go on sale at 9.00am on Monday, 17 May, 2010, and fans are urged to get in quick as these will be the final shows Powderfinger will ever be performing in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Cairns, with the very last show of the entire tour taking place in their home town of Brisbane.  Details of the Fan Club pre sale are below.

Perth fans will have a further chance to see the band perform on Wednesday, 22 September, 2010, with a 3rd show added on to the start of their current two date run.

Stand by for further details regarding support bands and major tour promotions.

Tickets for the new shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Cairns go on sale at 9.00am on Monday 17th May.
