Sam Fender announces Australian headline tour for November 2022

Our fave Geordie is heading back to our shores...

Breakout British artist Sam Fender will make his way back to Australian stages this November for a run of much-anticipated headline shows.

Since he was last on our shores back in July 2019 for Splendour In The Grass and a handful of sideshows, a lot has gone down in the world of Sam Fender.

He’s released two albums – his incredible debut Hypersonic Missiles and its 2021 follow-up Seventeen Going Under – he’s won a Brit Award, scored a UK #1 album, played to sold out crowds right across the UK, Europe, and the US (including headlining London’s Finsbury Park earlier this month) and taken the stage at every festival you can possibly think of including a huge set at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Now, this November, fans will finally get the chance to see Sam Fender perform again – taking in his biggest headline Australian shows to date.

My Ticketmaster Members Presale: Thursday 28 July @ 9am (local time) until Friday 29 July @ 8am (local time)
General Public Onsale: Friday 29 July @ 9am (local time)

Since the release of his debut single ‘Play God’ back in 2017, Sam Fender has been amassing a loyal gathering of fans, and turning heads of music critics, across the UK and around the world. Thanks to his propulsive, politically charged brand of indie rock, he was named on BBC’s Sound of 2018 shortlist, and it has been full steam ahead ever since.

He burst on to the scene sharing honest, vulnerable reflections about the small Newcastle town he calls home, stories overheard in dark pubs, and criticisms of the world outside it. On his second album Seventeen Going Under, Sam Fender instead turned the focus inwards, with soaring arrangements and bold statements soundtracking a record brimming with intimate, poignant, and relatable storytelling.

It is that relatable storytelling that saw the album’s title track become the social media soundtrack for people around the world to share their own personal tales of abuse and mistreatment. 

Now, Fender is ready to bring his celebrated live show to Australia again.

Ticketmaster will regularly ask you to update your password to ensure the security of your account – you don’t want to get stuck having to change your password while the ticket timer is counting down during onsale as you can risk losing the incredible tickets you have secured.

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.

Top tip: To make entry on event day as quick as possible, we recommend adding your tickets to your phone’s wallet before arriving at the venue.

How do I purchase Accessible tickets?

Fans who require accessible tickets can purchase these through the General Public ticketing page. Please select the number of wheelchair, accessible, and/or companion card tickets you would like to purchase.

Accessible seats (including Companion Cards) can be purchased during the presales via Customer Service if you can quote a relevant password.

Accessible seating, both during presales and the general public sale period, can also be requested via our Accessible Booking form. Please be sure to include your relevant presale code with your request if wanting to make a booking during the presale period.

If you need to talk to a Customer Service Representative, please call 1300 446 925. Please note, this phone number is reserved for patrons with accessibility requirements and companion cardholders and can not process any other ticketing requests.

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 into your My Ticketmaster account 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 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).

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window while you’re in the Waiting Room and when you’re being pushed through the Smart Queue and always resist the urge to refresh.

Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.
