New Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem have confirmed they will be touring Australia next year, playing four pulsating shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in January and February 2015.
Earlier this year, frontman Brian Fallon revealed to Music Feeds the band had their eye on February 2015 as a timeframe for their next Australian tour. While he also revealed he would be keen on a return to the Soundwave lineup, promoter AJ Maddah ruled out that possibility, telling fans instead that there’s a “pretty good chance” of a tour in 2015.
Now they have both followed through with that promise, with the band locking in dates via Soundwave Touring for a 2015 Australian tour, this time off the back of their latest studio album Get Hurt. The album follows up their 2012 full-length effort Handwritten, but this time with a slightly heavier edge.
The Gaslight Anthem were last in the country in 2013 and delighted audiences with their high-energy sets. Tickets for the 2015 dates go on sale Friday, 17th October, and with a history of sold-out Australian tours, you should probably snap these up quick if you’re keen.
UPDATE 22/12/14: The Gaslight Anthem have added a Gold Coast show, their first ever, to their January 2015 Australian tour. Tickets for the new show go on sale 9am local time, Tuesday 23rd December. See updated information below.
UPDATE 22/12/14: The Gaslight Anthem have also added two “by request” shows in Sydney and Melbourne to their Australian tour, allowing fans to pick the band’s setlist. See updated information below.
