Matchbox Twenty Announce Their Aussie Tour!
It’s been four long years since they last touched down on our soil, but Matchbox Twenty have just announced a new Aussie tour which kicks off this October!
And that’s not all! The boys will be joined by their pals INXS, who will be performing their own greatest hits as they celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of their smash-hit album ‘Kick.’
The tour will start on October 20 at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne before heading to Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney, Hunter Valley, Wollongong, Adelaide and Perth.
Meanwhile, frontman Rob Thomas has opened up about the band’s brand new studio album ‘North.’
"I think there's a little more 'fun' on this record because we wrote a lot of this stuff together," Thomas revealed during a UStream chat earlier this month.
"Moving forward is the whole idea of this record, ‘North.’
“Finding new direction, finding out who you are, finding where you want to go.”
Don’t miss your chance to see two of the world’s biggest rock bands under the same roof as tickets go on sale @ 9am on Friday August 31!
