It’s with great delight The Frontier Touring Company announces that La Roux – one of this year’s most lauded bands – will perform their first headline shows in Australia this September and October. Performing in Sydney and Melbourne, there will be strictly one show only in each city, ensuring these are some of the hottest tickets in town. Support at both shows will be Sydney’s Catcall.

From a debut single release in late 2008, La Roux’s rise has been swift. Touted as an act to watch in 2009, La Roux exceeded expectations as they unleashed their electro soundscape on the music world, affirming their place as this year’s brightest stars.

The release of La Roux’s critically acclaimed self-titled debut album saw them collect a Mercury Prize nomination and headline performances at some of the world’s greatest festivals, making the La Roux story nothing short of astonishing, proving it is not the Year of the Ox, but rather, the Year of La Roux.

La Roux will no doubt sit atop many ‘best of’ lists in 2009 as media and fans have clambered to offer resounding praise:

“Sweet dreams are made of this” - NME

“Like the ‘80s, but better” – Q Magazine

“…impeccably capable of not only showcasing very apparent musical influences (Depeche Mode, New Order, even the Human League); but establishing a very distinctive sound in spite of the former.” – FasterLouder

“…a fiery, sassy and dynamic debut” – triple j

“…this album is surely going to catapult them into superstardom,” – inthemix

Most recently seen supporting Phoenix along the East Coast, Catcall will resume the prowl as she opens for La Roux in Sydney and Melbourne. Named the “next big thing” by the Sydney Morning Herald, Catcall’s impressive fuzz pop/rap hybrid is sure to thrill all in attendance. With a US tour under her belt and a debut album on the way it’s time Australia heard her purr.

As one of the year’s most celebrated bands, tickets to see La Roux will not last long. Ensure you secure yours immediately.
