Get ready for some late nights in the middle of July!
You’ve seen the mysterious posters popping up around the city and now we know why – UK electro pop quartet Glass Animals have announced they’ll be touring Australia in 2022.
The tour will finally see the Oxford four-piece bring their huge third album Dreamland to our shores.
Spearheaded by the success of the album’s single ‘Heat Waves’, Glass Animals have continued to amass a legion of dedicated fans Down Under, so these upcoming shows are sure to be huge.
Taking out the #1 spot on this year’s triple j Hottest 100 – the first time a UK band has scored the accolade since 2009 – ‘Heat Waves’ also held the No.1 spot on the ARIA Official Singles Chart in Australia for six consecutive weeks. The single has spent 41 weeks in the top 10 of ARIA chart, making it on par with ‘Dance Monkey’s’ record for the most weeks in the top 10 in ARIA history.
Now Glass Animals are set to play their biggest shows on Australian soil ever, bringing their mind-bending Dreamland live experience our way.
Glass Animals 2022 Australia Tour
- July 14, 2022, – HBF Stadium, Perth WA
Tickets go on sale Tuesday 23rd November @ 11am (local)
They’ve been described as the pandemic’s pop success story, and it’s safe to say that is a fair description of the last couple of years for Glass Animals – although it didn’t start out that way.
First, the release of Dreamland was postponed. Then, according to an interview with frontman Dave Bayley in the Financial Times, the band were told the record would flop and they should put it out and immediately start writing its follow up.
The album finally released in August 2020 to a somewhat modest reception, but it was the slow build behind ‘Heat Waves’ – across gaming culture, streaming, and social media – that saw Glass Animals fast becoming one of the biggest bands of the year.
An album about community but without the ability to tour, Glass Animals took things into their own hands. Connecting with fans online in a variety of innovative ways – from creating an interactive ’90s-esque website filled with easter eggs and hidden content to the livestream concert the band dubbed a “One-Off AudioVisual Experience” and to Bayley taking fans into his songwriting den – Glass Animals weren’t slowing down for a second.
But on the live stage is where they do things best, and if reviews from their recent shows across the US and UK are anything to go by, you don’t want to miss a second of their Australian visit.

Get to know Ticketmaster’s Smart Queue
If you aren’t familiar with Smart Queue, it is Ticketmaster’s way of creating a clear and fair process for thousands of fans to buy tickets in a short space of time. Fans enter the virtual Waiting Room prior to onsale time before joining the Smart Queue – which acts as a ‘virtual line’, helping us protect you and your tickets in a more effective way.
The time you join the Waiting Room does not determine your place in the Smart Queue, so we recommend joining at least 10 minutes prior to the event going on sale but there is no need to rush.
When the sale begins, the Smart Queue will open and everyone in the Waiting Room is given a place in line. Those who did not join the Waiting Room will be placed at the end of the line.
- Sign in to your Ticketmaster account at least 10 minutes before joining the Waiting Room. This will speed up your purchase later.
- Confirm you have a valid form of payment in your account with current email and billing information. This will make checkout a breeze.
- Resist the urge to refresh. Your page will automatically refresh when you enter the Smart Queue.
- Keep an eye on the time! When it’s your turn, your spot will be held for 10 minutes to begin shopping.
- Just like before, tickets are always based on availability, demand, and are not guaranteed.
