RETURNS FOR MARCH 2010 SHOWS
The Frontier Touring Company is elated to announce that the UK’s hottest electro pop duo, La Roux, are returning to Australia for shows in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide in March 2010.
One of the stand-out and must-see acts of 2009, La Roux’s last tour saw headline shows sell out in just minutes. Venues were upgraded to meet demand and sold out again just as quickly.
Clearly La Roux need little introduction to Australian audiences, whose love affair with the pair’s highly acclaimed, self-titled debut propelled the album into the upper echelons of the ARIA chart. But that’s hardly surprising for a CD that features radio favourites like ‘Quicksand’, ‘In For The Kill’ and the hip-shaking, toe-tapping ‘Bulletproof’.
A nomination for the UK’s illustrious Mercury Prize this year, and peak positions on hit lists such as the BBC’s Sound of 2009 and The Guardian’s Best New Acts of 2009 resulted in La Roux becoming one of the most talked about and well-respected new bands of the year.
And whilst some bands fail to live up to the hype, La Roux certainly delivers. Their recent live shows Downunder were received to a rapturous response.
‘A storming performance… Like Beth Ditto before her, Jackson is quickly becoming an icon, celebrated for bucking a trend and looking f**king cool whilst doing it.’ - Beat Magazine, October 2009
‘The fans eat up every moment… In For The KiIl and Bulletproof capped the night off with La Roux proving that despite the hype they certainly have what it takes.’ - Inpress Magazine, October 2009
Promising to return even bigger and better than before, this tour will be a must for 2010. So make sure you don’t miss out, because this time there won’t be any second chances.
