Brisbane Festival is set to fill the city with live art and we’ve waded through the incredible program to showcase some of our favourite events.
**Update: 5 Seconds of Summer have rescheduled their Australian tour dates. Originally locked in for November and December 2020, the tour will now take place in March 2021 – all current tickets are valid for the new dates.
They’ve been taking the world by storm, now 5 Seconds of Summer have announced a huge homecoming tour this November and December.
The announcement comes fresh off the release of their thumping new single ‘No Shame’. Taken from the band’s fourth studio album Calm, the tour will be our first chance to hear 5SOS’s new tunes on the live stage.
Besides last July’s Friends of Friends special event with local faves Amy Shark and Genesis Owusu to raise money for Blacktown Youth Services Association, it’s been a little while since fans Down Under have got to experience a full 5 Seconds of Summer tour. The break stretching all the way back to the tail-end of 2018.
Don’t think their absence from our shores means they’ve been sitting around – that’s not true by a longshot. As well as huge headline tours around American and the United Kingdom, they also headed around the States with The Chainsmokers and Lennon Stella. 5 Seconds of Summer have definitely been racking up their frequent flyer miles.
And if last night’s performance at Sydney’s Fire Fight Australia event is anything to go by, this upcoming tour will continue to see 5 Seconds of Summer in fine form. We cannot wait.
By the time November comes around, we will have had eight whole months to learn the lyrics to 5 Seconds of Summer’s new album. Calm follows up 2018’s Youngblood, 2015’s Sounds Good Feels Good, and their triumphant 2014 self-titled debut. From pop-punk wunderkinds to a full-force evolution of modern pop’s sonic boundaries, so far, they’re three for three with #1 ARIA Album Chart and Billboard 200 debuts – the only band (not vocal group) in chart history to achieve the feat.
See you soon Luke, Michael, Calum, and Ashton!
