2017 Splendour In The Grass headliners The xx have announced that they will return to Australia early next year for a run of three huge outdoor headline shows supported by singer-songwriter Kelela and rapper Earl Sweatshirt.
The xx’s Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and Jamie Smith will play all-ages shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney in January in support of their latest album I See You.
Throughout the tour, The xx will be raising money for local LGBT+ programs in each city, by donating $1 from each ticket sold through the PLUS1 organisation.
The band’s 2018 Aussie shows will be their first local headline gigs since 2013, after they dropped Coexist in 2012.
Catch all the dates, venues and ticket details for the tour, below.

UPDATE 09/01/18: Earl Sweatshirt has cancelled his appearances with The xx. Replacing Earl Sweatshirt on the tour will be Perth artist Kučka.
