British rock giants Supergrass have added an additional date to their 2020 Australian tour.
The band will play a second show at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre on April 30, after the first show on April 29 sold out. Tickets for all other dates on the tour, including shows in Sydney and Brisbane, are still available. Check out the full list of dates below.
Last Wednesday (February 12), the British rockers announced their first Australian headlining shows in over a decade.
The band, who unexpectedly reunited in 2019, are set return to Australia as a part of the 2020 Groovin The Moo festival.
Around the festival dates, they will perform six solo shows in a number of major cities and regional locations. Their last Australia tour was in 2008, in support of their final album ‘Diamond Hoo Ha’.
The band will be joined at these shows by Melbourne’s Rocket Science, who recently returned from a lengthy hiatus themselves to release their fifth album ‘Snake’.
Supergrass were formed in 1993 and went on to release their debut album, ‘I Should Coco’, two yeard later. Over the next two decades, the band achieved over a dozen Top 40 singles in their native UK, the most famous of which was 1995’s ‘Alright’ which peaked at number two.
Following in-band acrimony, Supergrass split up in 2010. In September of 2019, however, the band made their return with an appearance at Pilton Party on Worthy Farm.
Tickets for the tour went on sale today (February 20) at 11am local time. For more information, visit the official Frontier Touring website.
