News just in! Genre-bending YUNGBLUD has tacked on another show to his Australian tour and will stop off at the University of Newcastle’s Bar On The Hill on Friday before making his way to Perth for his final Australian show on Sunday.
A tsunami of raw punk rock energy, potent street poetry and catchy-as-hell pop sensibilities, the English fireball returns to Australia in 2019 for a blazing YUNGBLUD tour across Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth.
The Doncaster native has heard the calls of his underage Melburnian fanbase and has added a special U18 matinee show just for them at the Croxton Bandroom on Friday 8 February. Tickets are on sale now and, if the waitlist is any indication, will be snapped up in a flash.
These highly anticipated performances will give Yungblud a chance to show off hits from his debut album 21st Century Liability like I Love You, Will You Marry Me? and Polygraph Eyes.
He’ll also get the chance to say G’day to a growing fanbase that are falling fast for his fearless social commentary and electric personality.
Inspired by heroes Jamie T and Arctic Monkeys while tipping his hat to hip-hop, ska and punk rock the new Londoner locked in with fans Down Under with his second single I Love You, Will You Marry Me?
A huge triple j hit, it tells the story of a piece of proposal graffiti scrawled in a Northern England council flat that was repurposed by developers to sell gentrification. The artist wound up homeless in a devastating piece of modern irony.
It’s a heavy subject for sure, but one that Harrison wasn’t afraid to tackle as he turned the song into a jumped up mini-anthem for a new generation.
There’s plenty more to come too, as new single “Kill Somebody” picks up steam and punters start getting wise to YUNGBLUD’s antics. These very special shows will be nothing short of glorious chaos.
Aussie born, LA based emo-pop queen AViVA will return to home soil to join YUNGBLUD for selected shows (excludes matinee). After bursting onto the scene in 2017 with her debut single ‘GRRRLS’, AViVA has gone on to produce her very own brand of music combining elements of rock, pop, punk and emo to create follow up hits ‘DROWN’ and ‘Blame It On The Kids’. AViVA is not appearing at the Melbourne U18 matinee show.
Tickets on sale now.
