Alabama native, YELAWOLF announces his return to our shores this December. After a hugely successful tour in 2015, the hip-hop extraordinaire is back with a run of shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.
Tickets for all shows go on sale 2pm (local time) this Friday, October 27.
My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning at midday (local time) Wednesday, October 27.
Yelawolf has seen it all; from living on the streets and working on fishing boats in Alaska, to turning the heads of top industry reps with a flurry of mixtapes and inking a deal Eminem’s Shady Records. The best way to describe Yelawolf is, expect the unexpected.
Born Michael Atha, Yela’s musical swagger can be traced back to the slang and spiritualism of his small home-town in Gadsden, Alabama. His captivating experiences as a cross-country vagabond equipped him with the evocative precision of a master storyteller. The pride in his southern background are on the forefront of his mind as he takes you on a sonic joyride across sample laden guitar licks and old classic rock cuts.
After years of riding waves of underground triumph with his mixtapes, Yela found commercial success with his 2011 breakout album, Radioactive. The album was his first release under the umbrella of Shady Records and took the world by storm with his rapid-fire delivery of detail from his fascinating upbringing through a truth-telling lens. His 2015 follow-up record continued to propel him upward with Love Story peaking at number 3 on the Billboard Top 200.
His third full-length, Trial By Fire out this Friday, is one of the most hotly anticipated albums of the year. If the single ‘Punk’ featuring Travis Barker and Juicy J is anything to go by, expect more of the rustic, melodic, southern-swing hip-hop we’ve all come to love of Yelawolf.
Come along and check out the most illustrious and unique voices in hip-hop for yourself this December.

Post-hardcore pioneers, THURSDAY announce they’re coming out of retirement with their first run of shows in Australia since 2012. Officially reforming in 2016, they’ll bring the tour to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide in March 2018. Joining them on all dates is influential New York City post-hardcore legends, QUICKSAND.
Tickets for all shows go on sale at midday this Friday, October 13.
My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning at 10am tomorrow, October 11.
Revered for their anguished lyrics, chiming guitars and explosive stage presence, Thursday have been a household name among punk and rock fans since their debut release, Waiting, 18 years ago. Coming out of New Jersey in 1999 at the precipice of the post-punk movement, Thursday were quick to gain the attention of fans and labels with their raw, emotive sound. However, it wasn’t until their 2001 album, Full Collapse, that they fully defined a genre.
Over the course of their active years, Thursday produced six eclectic albums. None were more representative of their distinctive sound than 2003’s War All The Time. Armed with the backing of major label, Island Records, the album continued to elevate them as one of the most complex and exciting bands of the decade. After pioneering the post-hardcore genre, the band officially disbanded in 2013.
Emerging from the New York City hardcore scene of the 90’s, QUICKSAND delivered a masterclass over two albums on what would be a stylistic blueprint for many bands to follow. They will release Interiors this November, which many attribute as their best album to date. It arrives deliberately unannounced, two decades after the pioneering post-hardcore quartet’s last album. Made completely on the band’s own terms, Interiors has a power, strength and subtlety that will likely stun you. There are no wasted notes, no flab, and no excess whatsoever. It is absolutely perfect.
Catch these two genre-defining acts together this March!

Gemini, which this week hit #1 on the iTunes Chart and #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, features hit singles ‘Glorious’ and ‘Good Old Days’.
Twice-platinum ‘Glorious’ featuring Skylar Grey, is Macklemore’s fifth ARIA top three single and his first as a solo artist. Currently climbing the Billboard 100, the track is sitting at #2 on the iTunes Chart and at #3 on the ARIA Chart.
Follow up single, ‘Good Old Days’ featuring Kesha, is the latest track to be lifted from Gemini debuting in the top 25 of the ARIA Singles Chart and at #5 of the iTunes Chart.

Brooklyn hip-hop trio, FLATBUSH ZOMBIES are set to take over the East Coast this January for the first time since 2013. The three-piece outfit will play a one-off sideshow at Brisbane’s Max Watts as well as supporting RUN THE JEWELS in Melbourne and Sydney.
With confirmation of a spot at Origin Festival already locked in, this is an opportunity to see New York’s hottest hip-hop trinity for yourself this summer.

Out of Flatbush, New York, came Flatbush Zombies (aka FBZ) consisting of emcees Meechy Darko and Juice, as well as lifelong friend and producer, Erick Arc Elliott. Formed in 2010, Meech and Elliott grew up together in Brooklyn and eventually connected with beat-maker Juice at high school. The trio immediately kicked it off with their love of all things hip-hop.
High school was spent writing rhymes, crafting beats and freestyling their way towards their first release ‘Thug Waffle’; a critically acclaimed homage to breakfast and… substances. Things started to heat up for the group with the release of their first full length album, D.R.U.G.S. (“Death and Reincarnation Under God’s Supervision”). This album rapidly propelled them to the forefront of the NY hip-hop scene. Their psychotropic instrumentation and off-kilter rhyme style continued with their epic follow up mixtape, Better Off Dead. The long-awaited 2016 album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey perfectly captures the 90s golden era hip-hop vibes with a blend of macabre, old-school lyricism that have aligned FBZ with the some of the all-time great, hip-hop heads.
The trio’s collaborations include ASAP Rocky, Danny Brown, Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ among others.
Flatbush Zombies are here to take you on a kaleidoscopic journey through the colourful twisted minds of Meechy, Arc and Juice. Don’t miss it!

FOUR YEAR STRONG have announced that they will be extending their Australian visit this January, taking Rise or Die Trying on the road to celebrate the album’s 10th anniversary. Special guests on all dates on their UNIFY sideshows will be Kentucky natives, KNOCKED LOOSE.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning at 10am, September 21. For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: livenation.com.au.
Four Year Strong had this to say when they announced the first run of anniversary dates in the US:
“In 2007 we put out a record called Rise or Die Trying, starting us down a path that would lead us all over the world, and drastically change our lives. With 2017 marking the 10 year anniversary, it’s time to say thank you. Thank you to everyone that came out and supported our young band, thank you to everyone who still goes crazy at shows when we play RODT songs, and thank you to a record that gave us these last 10 years.”
Over the next year we will be announcing Rise or Die Trying 10 year shows all over the world where we will be playing the record front to back.”
They kept true to that promise and will be touring the record Down Under on the back of their appearance at UNIFY 18 in January. The announcement also follows the release of their acoustic b-sides record Some Of You Will Like This // Some Of You Won’t via Pure Noise Records.
Label mates KNOCKED LOOSE released their debut album, Laugh Tracks, in 2016 and will return to Australia in 2018 after previously touring with Stick To Your Guns in January 2017.

JACK JOHNSON and his band return this summer playing all your favourite songs outdoors, under the stars, touring in support of his forthcoming studio album, All The Light Above It Too.
Last here in 2013, Jack Johnson 2017 Summer Tour will see Johnson performing at some of Australia’s finest outdoor venues including Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Brisbane’s Riverstage, Perth’s stunning Kings Park and Botanic Garden and on the Sydney Opera House Forecourt this December.
Playing to 270,000 fans across 19 shows on his recent North American trek, fans can expect to hear plenty of classic Jack including ‘Better Together’, ‘Flake’, ‘Banana Pancakes’, ‘Taylor’, ‘Sitting, Waiting, Wishing’ and more, plus songs from the new album.
Joining Jack Johnson in Australia will be special guest and his own Brushfire Records labelmate, Bahamas.
Tickets for all shows go on sale at 11am Monday, September 11.
Telstra Thanks is bringing an exciting 48-hour pre-sale just for Telstra customers from 10am Wednesday, September 6 until 10am Friday, September 8. For more information on how to purchase, visit: Telstra.com/jackjohnson.

Jack Johnson’s songwriting over the years has been a rare balance of quiet introspection and thoughtful observation. Born and raised in Hawaii where he grew up surfing and playing guitar, Johnson released his debut album Brushfire Fairytales in 2001. Since then he has released another six studio and two live albums that have sold in excess of 25 million copies worldwide. In Australia he has sold 1.2 million albums and had four albums at #1 including 2005’s hit, In Between Dreams.
All The Light Above It Toois the seventh studio album for the multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter and the follow-up to 2013’s From Here to Now to You. This latest offering finds Johnson returning to the stripped-back, home-grown feel of the four-track recordings that launched his career more than 17 years ago. While his long-time bandmates Adam Topol (drums), Merlo Podlewski (bass) and Zach Gill (piano) accompanied him on several tracks, Johnson handled most of the instrumentation on his own, sculpting many of the songs around his graceful guitar performance. All The Light Above It Too will be released here on September 8.
Johnson and his production team, alongside Reverb, will continue to pave the way in green touring practices with extensive sustainability programs at every show. Curbing the use of single-use plastic has been at the forefront of Johnson’s work for over a decade. Since 2005, Johnson’s crew has implemented a plastic free backstage and since 2007 all shows have offered fans free water through water-refill stations with reusable bottle and cup options to reduce single-use plastic. Additional greening actions for Johnson’s 2017 Summer Tour include sourcing local, organic food as part of a “farm to stage” program, producing upcycled and eco-friendly merchandise, expanding waste reduction, composting and recycling, offering bike valets and alternative transportation incentives, as well as offsetting all remaining CO2 emissions. Through Jack’s All At Once campaign, the Summer Tour will support more than 30 non-profit partners and will engage fans to take action in support of sustainable local food systems and plastic free initiatives. Fans can visit these partners in the Village Green and participate in the greening actions at each show. Leading up to each show our All At Once Non-Profit Partner Tangaroa Blue will be hosting volunteer beach cleanups in each concert city. Sign up for Jack’s newsletter for details. Further information on green initiatives here.
