The shows were only announced yesterday and they’ve gone like hotcakes this morning – to the point where The xx’s shows in both Sydney and Melbourne have fully sold out (with the Brisbane and Perth dates reportedly not far behind).
Tour organisers have moved quickly, adding second shows in Sydney and Melbourne, with tickets already on sale.
The xx have enjoyed a phenomenal rise to the top. Their 2010 self-titled debut won them not only critical acclaim across the globe, but an esteemed Mercury Prize to go with it. Their follow-up ‘Coexist’, released last year, was heaped with similar praise.
No wonder then that their forthcoming Aussie tour, kicking off at Metro City in Perth on April 02, has been met with such interest from their passionate local fanbase.
