Yeah Yeah Yeahs Announce Side Shows in Sydney and Melbourne

NYC’s excellent YEAH YEAH YEAHS will return to Australia over the New Year period, with a notoriously deadly live experience and universally adored new record, It’s Blitz! in tow. The newly crowned proprietors of the finest zombie rock this side of the century haven’t seen Australia since 2006, and their return comes not a moment too soon.

Already headlining a bunch of Festival bills this summer, finally and deservedly the YEAH YEAH YEAHS announce two of their very own headline shows – one each for Sydney and Melbourne.

So if you’ve missed out on tickets to the Falls Festivals, or you just weren’t allowed because society calls you underage, then don’t miss out on these two limited ALL AGES shows:

Tuesday December 29

Festival Hall, Melbourne


or Festival Hall Box Office

Friday January 8

Hordern Pavilion



Karen O and co. will be joined onstage by special guests soon to be announced.

It’s Blitz! has been another quantum leap forward for the band, with tracks like Zero and Heads Will Roll taking them into the kind of sub-goth new wave pop space that one would never have predicted having heard their debut EP back in 2001. It’s Blitz! sees them effortlessly disregard genre schmenre like nobodies business and continue to be that band of good surprises from one move to the next.

The next single from It’s Blitz, Skeletons, goes to radio Mid-November.

As anyone that has seen them in the past will attest, life’s too short to second-guess this band.
