The Maine Announce 2024 “Sweet Sixteen” Australian Tour

The Maine have announced their return to Australia for September 2024. The five-date run will take place as part of the band’s Sweet Sixteen world tour, in which they are celebrating 16 years as a band. A full run of dates and ticketing information can be found below.

The American pop-punk band were last in Australia in September 2022, playing a co-headlining tour with State Champs in support of their 2021 album XOXO: From Love and Anxiety In Real Time. “We’re always so focused on the future that we rarely look back,” wrote the band in a press statement.

“The Sweet Sixteen tour is not only a celebration of our self-titled album, but a salute to the last 16 years of our band with a career-spanning set featuring songs from every chapter of The Maine. No matter if you’ve been here for 16 years or 16 days, we can’t wait to see you.”

The Maine – ‘Thoughts I Have While Lying In Bed’

Indeed, since the band were last in Australia they have put out an eponymous studio album – their ninth overall. A deluxe edition of The Maine was issued in January 2024, including new versions of several tracks such as a “wedding version” of ‘Funny How?’ and a reworked ‘Leave In Five’ with new vocals from MisterWives.
