Live Nation has this morning announced the return to Australian shores of US outfit Matchbox Twenty. The band, fronted by affable star Rob Thomas, hasn’t toured Australia in four years, but they’ll be back in October to play shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra and Wollongong, as well as a show at the Hope Estate Winery in the New South Wales Hunter Valley.
The boys will be playing the hits that have made them famous, along with songs from their forthcoming new album ‘North’ (released later this month).
Joining Matchbox Twenty in the support role will be legendary Aussie outfit INXS, fronted by new lead vocalist Ciaran Gribbin, who’ll play an hour-long set of their own hits.
Tickets for all shows are on sale on Friday August 31.
