Select Touring and Blue Murder have announced fan favourites, TAKING BACK SUNDAY, are returning to Australian and New Zealand shores in March 2017, bringing with them a catalogue of chart topping hits from their vast discography plus material from their highly anticipated 7th studio album, Tidal Wave.
MELBOURNE SOLD OUT WITH SECOND SHOW ADDED!
It only took just over an hour for rabid Taking Back Sunday and The Used fans to snap up tickets to the Monday 25 August show in Melbourne. We are bloody stoked to announce that both artists have agreed to perform a second and definitely final Melbourne show! Tickets for the newly announced Tuesday 26 August show at 170 Russell are on sale now. Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide fans be warned that only limited tickets remain for your shows.
Having just completed a massive sold out tour of the USA, TAKING BACK SUNDAY and THE USED have just re-defined the phrase “Co-Headline”.
It’s a rare occurrence when two heavyweights of any genre agree to tour together. One off shows in cities rapidly sold out and became two shows then multiple shows due to the overwhelming demand for tickets. Now it’s Australia’s turn to see THE USED and TAKING BACK SUNDAY performing full headline sets encompassing their entire career with Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide getting to witness firsthand what fans and critics alike have been raving about:
Taking Back Sunday is a band that truly needs no introduction. Six albums in and more than a decade into their stellar career, the trailblazing quintet have been consistently delivering dynamic, quality emo-rock for the dreamy and dedicated. Taking Back Sunday have just released ther sixth album ‘Happiness Is’. These formally scrappy punks are now truly seasoned songwriters, and that is crystal clear on this new album; their first on an independent label in more than ten years. It revives the classic line-up that launched a career that has sold millions of albums and toured the world many times. A musical and conceptual leap, ‘Happiness Is’ showcases confident songwriting that will endear the beloved rockers to fans both old and new.
|MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE regretfully announce that they have been forced to cancel all upcoming engagements, including their appearance at The Soundwave Festival in Australia.
Singer Gerard Way has been having severe vocal problems and is under doctor’s advisement to forgo the tour in order to receive treatment for his throat and vocal chords and protect their long-term use.
|After fifteen years, six studio albums, ten million album sales, breakdowns, clean ups and the dizzy swell of global success, few will argue that PLACEBO are among the world’s great rock bands. For the first time in three years the guys will be bringing their swag of hits to the Soundwave stages in 2010.|
ANTHRAX redefined metal in the ’80s, stressing anger, speed, and emotional intensity over big hair and power ballads. After a stunning performance at the Sonisphere festival a huge campaign was waged by the fans to get John Bush back on vocals. We can proudly announce that John will indeed be fronting Anthrax for their Soundwave performances and this will surely have the bands faithful frothing at the mouth!

One of the 7 wonders of the ancient world, the pyramids have baffled archaeologists as to how those huge chunks of rock were assembled together some 2500 years ago.
|Following its most successful year, we are hoping that in years from now, folks will look at the 2010 Soundwave line‐up and wonder how so much ROCK from around the world was assembled together in 5 cities across Australia.
