Tickets for the tour go on sale from 2pm AEDT this coming Tuesday (November 23) through Untitled. A presale will take place from 12pm AEDT the day prior.
Glass Animals’ ‘Dreamland’ single ‘Heatwaves’ topped the triple j Hottest 100 of 2020, making them the first UK band to do so since Mumford & Sons in 2009 with ‘Little Lion Man’. The group had previously pledged to tattoo their arses with the outline of the Australian continent if they won.
NME gave ‘Dreamland’ a four-star review upon its release in August 2020, writing the band “have overcome a period of intense adversity to bring you a record of deeply personal tales – all set to shimmering pop tunes”.
