The gig will be their second-ever UK headline show
Empire Of The Sun have announced a special London show celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Walking On A Dream’. See more details below.
Released in 2009, the LP featured Top 20 single ‘We Are The People’ and bagged the band a BRIT nomination in the Best International Album category. In a four-star review of the record, NME compared the Australian duo to MGMT, David Bowie, and Prince.
Now, the band are set to hit the road to mark 10 years of the album with a celebratory tour.
Following a run of US dates beginning in May, the group will return to London for the second-ever UK headline show of their career. Empire Of The Sun will take to the stage at London’s Brixton Academy on July 9, having last played the capital in 2016.
The following night, they will head over to France for a gig at Casino de Paris. The tour also includes performances in Chicago, New York, LA, Boston, and more. See the full schedule below.

Empire Of The Sun released their latest album, ‘Two Vines’, in 2016. The record featured contributions from Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham and members of David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ band.
In a two-star review, NME concluded: “The album was made, in part, in Hawaii. Luke Steele would surf in the morning and retreat to the studio later on. It’s the kind of idyllic setting where days simply just pass by. Unfortunately, too many of the tracks on ‘Two Vines’ do exactly the same.”
