The Shins Announce 2017 Australian Headline Tour Dates

After already announcing plans to grace Aussie stages this summer as part of Perth’s Fidelity Festival and Berry’s Fairgrounds Festival, The Shins have just gifted fans with a handful of headlining tour dates to boot.

The US indie rock pioneers will be giving local punters an early Chrissy present in the form of a trio of east coast shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney this December.

It comes in celebration of their fifth studio album, Heartworms, which dropped earlier this year to widespread frothage.

Joining enigmatic frontman James Mercer on the band’s new Aussie tour will be Yuuki Matthews (bass), Jon Sortland (drums), Mark Watrous (guitar, keys, vocals), Casey Foubert (guitar) and Patti King (keys).

Catch all the tour dates and ticket details below.
