Destroy All Lines and Chugg Entertainment in association with UTA Present

In an era rife with downloads, fly by night one hit wonders and singles it’s the passionate fans that truly appreciate the album in its purest form. There is something cathartic about putting on an album from start to finish and being at one with the artist. There’s something innately satisfying about an album’s running order. The way the songs fit together and it characterises our relationship with them.

In that spirit for the first time ever in Australia THE USED will be performing their self-titled album ‘The Used’ in fill one night and then ‘In Love And Death’ in full the next night in every city the band play.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans of THE USED to revel in a night of nostalgia and remind themselves exactly why they fell in love with these iconic albums in the first place.

Tickets are on sale Monday 2nd May, 9am local. There will be limited discounted tickets available for both nights and also a strictly limited amount of VIP options. Head to www.tickets.destroyalllines.com for more information

THE USED & TAKING BACK SUNDAY Announce Australian Co-Headline Tour | August 2014



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”.

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:
