Norwegian black metal masters have postponed their Australian and Japanese tour dates until September citing personnel reasons.
Frontman Satyr says that due to personnel issues and logistics they have no choice but to delay the tour.
Satyr states “We had on and off-stage personnel dropping out on us at the last minute for this tour. We would have had to really compromise on the quality of our shows, which is something that we wouldn’t want to do when we go to Australia and Japan. It’s better for us to postpone and come back and do this properly. “
With the tour now in September, the revised dates are:
Tuesday, September 4: Capitol, Perth
Thursday, September 6: Max Watts, Melbourne
Friday, September 7: Metro Theatre, Sydney
Saturday. September 8: Transit Bar, Canberra
Sunday, September 9: The Triffid, Brisbane
ALL TICKETS FOR ALL APRIL SHOWS ARE VALID FOR THE SEPTEMBER DATES
Without any doubt, only one duo is able to evoke sinister settings like the world of bleak woods lurking behind Norwegian wafts of mist. And that duo is SATYRICON.
Formed in Oslo in 1991, the legendary SATYRICON made an immediate and enduring impact when they emerged from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene. With their latest opus ‘Deep calleth upon Deep‘ released in September 2017 on Napalm Records, the masters Satyr and Frost properly dispense the darkest art of metal: The resulting album is erratic and destructive, in addition to being raw and pure. It plows. It’s progressive. It mounts an unapologetic sonic attack filled with black metal anthems.
Says Satyr “Back in the day, Australia was one of the first countries where people were showing a great deal of interest in what we were doing on the other side of earth, in Norway. With “Now, Diabolical” we finally got to experience Australia ourselves, and ever since it has been of our favourite places to come visit. Our fans there get what we do and they usually show up in great numbers. As for Japan, even now, the crowd in Tokyo and their warrior-like approach to watching us play, is something we use as a reference internally. Tokyo is one of the greatest places on earth for Satyricon to play while Osaka has been getting better and better every time. Going to Australia and Japan is bound to be some of the best stops on the World Tour.”

Legends of fun time ska, BAD MANNERS return to Australia and New Zealand in 2018 for a Greatest Hits Tour. Fronted by Buster Bloodvessel, the man famous for his shiny bald head and giant personality, BAD MANNERS have a huge setlist of ska jubilation – Walking In The Sunshine, Lorraine, Lip Up Fatty, Special Brew, Just A Feeling, Skinhead Love Affair, My Girl Lollipop, Inner London Violence and of course the ultimate knees up Can Can.
Very Special Guest on this tour will be rude-girl queen of ska-pop JENNIE BELLE STAR (aka Jennie Matthias), lead singer of much treasured London all-girl 80’s band THE BELLE STARS. Formed out of the ashes of 2-Tone ska revivalists The Bodysnatchers, THE BELLE STARS signed to the home of Madness (Stiff Records) and proceeded to storm the UK charts with a succession of fabulously exuberant ska romps. Having toured the world with the likes of Madness, the Beat and The Clash, Jennie will perform a set of skankin’ standards and THE BELLE STARS classics including Sign of the Times, as well as their Two Australian Top 10 singles, Iko Iko and The Clapping Song.
“Part nostalgia, part celebration, but total enjoyment and heartfelt smiles” Glam Adelaide
BAD MANNERS quickly became the favourites of the Ska movement through their on-stage antics, earning early exposure through their Top of The Pops TV exploits and an appearance in the live film documentary, Dance Craze.
At their peak popularity during the late 1970s and early 1980s, when ska revivalist such as Madness, The Specials, The Beat and The Selecter filled the charts, Bad Manners spent a staggering 111 weeks in the UK Singles Chart between 1980 and 1983.
“From start to finish, the show is full of almost obnoxious amounts of energy.” – SongKick.com
One of the main reasons for BAD MANNERS’ notoriety was their outlandish huge-tongued and generously proportioned frontman, Buster Bloodvessel. His manic exploits got them banned from the British BBC TV chart show Top of the Pops… and they were also banned from Italian TV after Bloodvessel, having being told that the Pope was watching, mooned the audience. Don’t recall seeing anything like that on Countdown!
Get ready for a non-stop party with Buster and the boys for all their Greatest Hits… This is Ska!
“It’s a school-outing that’s never stopped for us. We started in ‘76 and we’ve never stopped. We’ve always played live shows everywhere. We have good fun.” – Buster Bloodvessel

He is the Viral / Slam / Mental Health Awareness Poet NEIL HILBORN and he is headed here next week. His poems often detail personal experiences and battles with mental illness or other disorders.
Casper sat down to chat with Neil about what to expect!
NEIL HILBORN is single-handedly bringing Poetry to the mainstream.
The Viral poet has garnered critical acclaim with over 60 million views of his internationally successful poems including ‘OCD’, ‘Joey’, ‘The Future’ and author of Amazon bestseller ‘Our Numbered Days’
NEIL HILBORN is a poet of the people: his work is accessible, honest, and he has undoubtedly left a deep impact in the history of contemporary poetry.
For the first time ever Australian fans will get their chance to witness NEIL HILBORN live this December and to say he is excited about the tour is an understatement. “How incredible is it that I’ve wanted to see Australia for so long, and now I get to travel there and perform my work. Life is pretty cool sometimes. I’ve wanted to hug a wombat since I was eight years old, and now it’s going to happen. Oh and I guess I’ll perform some poems too. If you had asked me five years ago if I thought poetry would bring me to Australia, I’d have said there’s no way. Now here we are, and here I go.”
