Icehouse announce Great Southern Land 2022 concert series – how to get tickets

Can you believe it's been 40 years?

Australia’s unofficial anthem ‘Great Southern Land’ is turning 40 in 2022, and Icehouse are heading around the country to celebrate.

First released in August 1982 – as the lead single from Icehouse’s multi-platinum, second album Primitive Man – the track peaked at #5 on the Australian Singles Charts before going on to mark its place in Australian music history.

After nearly 30 years of soundtracking Australian summers, ‘Great Southern Land’ re-entered the Australian Singles Chart in 2011, before being added to the Australian National Film & Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia list in 2014.

We’d need a lot more time and space to summarise the mammoth 40-year legacy of this song.

Great Southern Land

I had a classic Australian outdoor childhood, racing through the endless grass paddocks behind our house, building billycarts to race down Willans Hill, swimming in the river, and picnicking high up on the Rock, where the countryside stretched away for miles on all sides. That landscape became part of me, emerging often in my music and lyrics, most especially in Great Southern Land

Iva Davies, Icehouse

It is only fitting that the song that has soundtracked everything from national sporting moments to discussions about Mabo would be celebrated with a huge national series of shows featuring some of Australia’s favourite love acts from across the single’s 40 year history.

Joining Icehouse at different shows across the tour are special guests including Missy Higgins, James Reyne, Kasey Chambers, Eskimo Joe, Something for Kate, Jebediah, Baby Animals, William Barton, Vanessa Amorosi, Christine Anu, Busby Marou, and Emily Wurramurra.

In more exciting news, this is only the first announcement, and there are still a stack more shows coming soon. So keep your eyes peeled.

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account

Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account then make sure you sign up in advance – Ticketmaster.com.au.

Sign in ahead of time

Remember to triple check your passwords, account information, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.

Keep your options open with ‘Best Available’

Save time by searching “Best Available,” which scans all sections fast – it’s quicker than searching sections one at a time.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Remember: there are a lot of fans

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event. When a popular event goes on sale there are hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of customers all attempting to purchase tickets at the same time. Tickets are sold as long as seats are available, and when an act is as popular as Icehouse, sometimes they go very quickly.

Be sure to follow the above tips to ensure you have the best chance of snapping up some tickets.

Icehouse will celebrate 40 years of their landmark single ‘Great Southern Land’ with shows around Australia in 2022. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au, sign up for exclusive presale access.
