We might not have seen much of Axel and Chad – aka A Great Big World – in the past, but we’ve sure been hearing their music.
The boys’ song ‘Say Something’ has catapulted them to fame in Australia over the past couple of months, not only wedging them in the No.1 spot on the ARIA singles chart, but also gifting them a double platinum accreditation for sales of 140,000 copies.
It was hit TV show ‘Glee’ that really kicked them along, however, featuring the track ‘This Is The New Year’ (from the band’s debut self-funded EP) during an episode.
The duo recently released their debut album ‘Is There Anybody Out There?’, which hit the top 40 on the ARIA charts and is full to the brim with other wannabe chart stormers.
With all the excitement surrounding the band at the moment, Live Nation has this morning confirmed that Axel and Chad will head to Australia in August this year for a trio of live shows on the East Coast. They’ll visit Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne on three concurrent nights, kicking off at the Metro Theatre in Sydney on Friday August 01.
Live Nation pre-sale kicks off at 10am on Friday, with general public tickets going live from 10am on Monday March 31.
