Melbourne electro pioneers The Avalanches will be making their highly anticipated comeback this January, with headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide for the first time in over a decade! Proven to deliver a live show that effortlessly combines both albums, guest musicians and a few surprises, these shows are the perfect way to start your 2017!
The Avalanches’ sophomore album Wildflower is out in the world and the band have well and truly come good on their promise of a worthy follow-up to their era-defining 2000 debut Since I Left You. Delivering yet “another mind-blowing musical trip” (Sydney Morning Herald) with Frankie Sinatra, Subways, If I Were A Folkstar and many more, it’s like they never left.
When legends, meet legends! The one, the only, Grandmaster Flash will be on support duties for The Avalanches’ Sydney and Melbourne shows. The first hip-hop act inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be dropping tunes from a career littered with highlights. As an innovative DJ, he is unparalleled. As a hit maker, he is prolific, as a man, he is legend.
Joining The Avalanches in Adelaide for a hometown showdown will be one of the country’s most exciting guitar acts, Bad//Dreems. Having already supported punk-rock royalty in At The Drive-In and The Living End in 2016, as well as recently playing a massive set at the Maroochy Music and Visual Arts Festival, the rough and ready rockers are now hinting on social media that they’ve got new music on the horizon! In the meantime, they’ll be playing tracks off their 2015 critically-acclaimed debut record Dogs At Bay, including the anthems Dumb Ideas and Cuffed & Collared.
