King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have announced a handful of Australian headline dates in support of their upcoming albums. The forthcoming performances will be something of a homecoming for the Melbourne group, who’ll be capping off a busy year of touring with shows in Australia and New Zealand across the final weeks of 2022 and first few months of 2023.
Following the completion of a US tour, the group will perform at The Palace Foreshore in Melbourne this December, before spending the 2022/2023 new year period with a run of shows throughout New Zealand. At the end of March 2023, the band will perform at The Big Top in Sydney’s Luna Park as well as The Tivoli in Brisbane on their way to Bluesfest in early April.
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – ‘Ice V’
The announcement of these new headline dates comes following a few weeks of ups and downs for the Melbourne collective. In early August, the band were forced to cancel a number of European and UK dates due to front person Stu Mackenzie undergoing a “personal health crisis” and requiring treatment for Crohn’s Disease.
Earlier this month, the group detailed the release of three new albums, with Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava; Laminated Denim; and Changes all scheduled to arrive in October. These follow on from the release of Made In Timeland and Omnium Gatherum earlier in 2022, making this the first year since 2017 in which the band will have released five albums.
