Alt-J Have Postponed Their Australian Tour To 2023

Alt-J have postponed their upcoming Australian tour to 2023. The news comes just three weeks before the English outfit’s seven-date tour of the country was set to begin.

“Due to the new and evolving logistical challenges of touring in a post-pandemic world, we have sadly, after much debate, been forced to reschedule the Australian and New Zealand leg of The Dream tour to 2023,” the group said in a statement.

“We are so sorry to disappoint all our fans down under who have already bought tickets for these shows, expecting them to take place next month,” alt-J said. “You have always been so supportive and we are really looking forward to seeing you next year.”

Alt-J announced their return to Australia in February, scheduling a run of shows in support of their latest album, The Dream. They later added two extra shows in celebration of the tenth anniversary of their debut album, An Awesome Wave.

The shows will now take place in April and May 2023, with all tickets for the previous dates remaining valid. While new dates have been revealed for the shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, alt-J have cancelled their Adelaide performance outright.

“Unfortunately won’t be able to play our scheduled show at AEC Theatre,” they said. “We’re really sorry but rest assured we’re working on plans to get back to South Australia as soon as we can.” Full touring details are available below.
