The Aussies win over new fans before heading home

Operator Please played their very first Los Angeles show at the Hollywood Knitting Factory last night (October 24) before heading home to Australia.

The exuberant young band wowed the audience with their energetic pop-punk songs including ‘Pantomime’, ‘Terminal Disease’ and their Australian hit single ‘Just A Song About Ping Pong’.

They also previewed their forthcoming single ‘Leave It Alone’, which is due out in the UK on November 12.


“This is the last stop on our tour and then we go home, so what better place to be?” singer Amandah Wilkinson asked the crowd.

After the show, Wilkinson told NME.COM: “I’ve had the most amazing time in my whole life on this tour. It was the perfect ending to a perfect tour, but I’m excited to go home.”

They played:

‘Get What You Want’
