We must admit to being a little enamored by the debut album from UK synth-pOp outfit Friendly Fires. Released towards the end of last year, the album was critically acclaimed and was on high rotation for weeks here at auspOp. So imagine our girlish glee when we find out that the band is about to hit the country for their first ever Australian tour. BUT, in bad news for most of the capital cities, they’re hitting only Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Byron Bay. Tickets for all dates go on sale on Friday May 29.
July 24 : Perth (Amplifier Bar)
July 25 : Byron Bay (Splendour In The Grass)
July 26 : Byron Bay (Splendour In The Grass)
July 28 : Sydney (Manning Bar)
July 29 : Melbourne (Prince Bandroom)
