In very exciting news just in, legendary new wave London icons THE THE are returning to Australia and New Zealand as part of their ‘Ensouled’ world tour. After four decades of making music and selling out Sydney and Melbourne during their last visit in 2018, They are returning to Sydney and Melbourne while also playing their first Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide and Auckland shows in over 30 years.
Known for hits like ‘This Is the Day’ and ‘Uncertain Smile’, fans can expect to hear the favourites they know and love as well as some newer material. Their infectious sound spans a multitude of genres and topics, musing melodic synth pop with potent socio-political alt rock.
They broke through to the mainstream with 80’s albums Soul Mining, Infected and Mind Bomb, capturing audiences with their kaleidoscopic sound and fearless commentary on modern Britain.
At the very heart of controls, Matt Johnson says:
We’re very excited to be coming down to Australia and New Zealand again and to be playing more cities than our last tour in 2018. We’ve always been treated very well by our wonderful audiences in these two countries and we’re very happy to be able to see them again and re-connect to share some old and new memories.
