After visiting Australia for a run of sold out shows in 2013, LA threepiece Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have once again proved why they are one of the world’s most celebrated live bands, with an extension to their 2018 Australia tour, following a sell-out show at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre.
Presented by MJR Presents, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club will visit Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth, with Melbourne’s Forum now sold out and an additional show added at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne on Sunday 25 March, giving fans a rare opportunity to see the band in an intimate venue setting.
Supported by psych rock trio Stonefield in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Adelaide, and Sydney-based Garage rock outfit Los Tones in Melbourne, the LA trio will be performing a selection of crowd favourites from the bands illustrious 19-year, eight album back catalogue.
For the first time in Australia, fans will also be introduced to selection of cuts from the bands 2018 full length ‘Wrong Creatures’. Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Arcade Fire) the album takes a journey throughout rock’s history, taking unlikely twists and turns, both peppered with historic influences but also having one foot firmly in the present.
‘Every time we’ve toured Australia something in some way has tried to kill me at one point or another, and always in new and somewhat inspired ways. So I have a great deal of respect for whatever cosmic forces are going on down there. It definitely keeps me on my toes though, which is all you really need to make rock’n’roll I guess. Two good toes and a reason to keep tappin them.’ – Robert Levon Been / BRMC
Since their debut release in 2001, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have made a name for themselves on a global scale. By fusing together elements of the psych, space rock, noisepop and classic rock and roll that weave themselves across five acclaimed studio albums, BRMC live shows have often been hailed as events rather than mere gigs; a dynamic showcase of dark, brooding rock mixed with an energetic show you can’t take your eyes off.
