Arctic Monkeys add extra Sydney and Melbourne shows to Aussie tour Tone Deaf

The Arctic Monkeys have expanded their Australian tour, following immediate sell-outs in Sydney and Melbourne.

Just a couple of weeks ago, the Arctic Monkeys announced a long-awaited tour of Australia the bands first since 2014. Clearly, fans were eager to catch the Sheffield rockers on local shores, with two of the bands shows selling out almost immediately.

Now, the band have announced extra dates for Melbourne and Sydney to help cope with the stunning demand.

The band will touring the country off the back of their boozy, chamber-pop drenched sixth record, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. Its arguably the bands most sonically ambitious album to date, so we can only imagine how the sultry, slow-burner will translate live with Arctic Monkeys inimitable bravado.

The band will be bringing Los Angeles indie-pop trio Mini Mansions along for the ride, a band led by Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman.

Tickets to these new shows and the original tour dates are on sale now, so be quick to ensure you dont miss out on one of the most exciting live shows to hit Aussie shores this summer.

Check out the Arctic Monkeys Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino:

ALBUM REVIEW: James Ellis & The Jealous Guys  It Aint Texas (But It Aint Bad)

Australian country music can stay true to its American roots and also sound like a product of its antipodean environment. While the big names chase the sales figures and follow well-worn formats there others that carve out a sweet niche of inner city honky tonk and heartworn laneways. James Ellis imagination was captured on a Continue reading

A master of all areas of black music including modern jazz, dance, rap, cuban, big band and much more.

Keppie Coutts The Mysteries of Mad River: A Swamp-Folk Operetta 89.7 Eastside FM

Award-winning songwriter Keppie Coutts presents The Mysteries of Mad River: A Swamp-Folk Operetta, an eccentric, Freudian, and sparkling piece of musical theatre, that is one-part cabaret, one-part murder mystery. The Mysteries of Mad River revolves around the character of a lovable (but deranged) primary school teacher, singing her way through a town cursed with disappearing children. Coutts breaks the barriers of conventional songwriter performance, by stepping fully into the dark and riotous world of the characters she has created aided by the wonderful (and slightly macabre) drawings of Fiona McCabe. The swampy, honky-tonk, blues-folk narratives call on a musical ancestry that includes Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Leonard Cohen. Having won the praise of peers and fans in the US (including a song produced by John Mayer), Coutts has joined forces with Anna Jahjah of Theatre Excentrique to bring the stories and characters to life (and death), in this dark comedy. A beautifully costumed and theatricalized musical performance you will not want to miss.

Couttss songs marry soul and folk so gorgeously, youll cheer when they get stuck on endless repeat on the jukebox in your brain. The Boston Globe.

Doors open at 6pm. The In-flight Bar & Diner will open at 6pm so you can enjoy a drink and delicious snacks.



Pill Testing, Not Penalties: An Interview With Take Controls Kieran Palmer "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

Two young people died after taking drugs at the Defqon.1 festival in September. At the time, there was saturation policing at the music festival. There were 194 police officers deployed at the event, some of whom were accompanied by drug detection dogs. The tragedy sparked renewed calls for the roll out of pill testing trials in NSW.
