Beloved local rockers Powderfinger may have broken hearts across Australia when they announced their split earlier this month, but as a sweetener the Brissy boys have announced details of their most extensive Oz tour to date!

The intergalactic-rock group, who have performed together for over 20 years, produced seven successful albums, and have picked up a swag of ARIAs along the way, will visit 21 cities in Oz before heading to Splitsville for good.

Joining Powderfinger for shows on the ‘Sunsets’ tour will be old friends, Jet and The Vines.

It’s their first major national tour since the hugely successful ‘Across The Great Divide’ tour with Silverchair almost three years ago, and needless to say, fans are chomping at the bit to get their mitts on tickets. Make sure you get yours early, because this one will sell out fast…

Tickets available from www.ticketek.com.au and ticketmaster.com.au

Tickets for the new shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Cairns go on sale at 9.00am on Monday, 17 May, 2010.
