MUNA announce intimate Sydney headline show17 Jan 2023
Californian indie-pop trio MUNA are thrilled to announce details of an exclusive Sydney show, set to take place at the intimate Oxford Art Factory on Monday 6 March.
The band’s first ever Australian headline show will take place the day after they make their anticipated debut as headliners at Sydney WorldPride on Sunday 5 March. They will then hit the road with Lorde, appearing as special guests on the star’s Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney Solar Power shows as well as at Adelaide Festival throughout March.
Known for their impeccable live performances and stellar on-stage energy and production, MUNA’s live show has been described as “effortlessly captivating and endlessly impressive” (Varsity UK).
The three-piece have built their incredible fanbase touring with the likes of Harry Styles, Kacey Musgraves and The 1975, and performing live on US TV shows The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Ellen Show and more. Later this year, MUNA will open multiple shows on the US leg of Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour in addition to headlining their own US tour and performing at several festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo and Reading/ Leeds.
Released last year through Phoebe Bridger’s Saddest Factory record label, MUNA’s self-titled third studio album is a landmark – the forceful, deliberate, dimensional output of a band who has nothing to prove to anyone except themselves.
“… brilliant new album drips with sex, freedom and synth-pop bliss” – Spin
“pulsating with a newfound freedom… a euphoric third album of stomping pop, country and ambient pulses from one of pop’s best bands” – The Guardian
Featuring Phoebe Bridgers, album single ‘Silk Chiffon’ was MUNA’s instant-classic cult smash, hitting the grey skies of the pandemic’s year-and-a-half mark in 2021 like a double rainbow. Marked by a newfound creative assurance, the band musters their unique powers to break through the existential muck and transport listeners to a place where vulnerability in the presence of those who love you can make you feel momentarily bulletproof, and self-consciousness only sharpens the swell of joy.
There’s no doubt MUNA will serve up a sensational night of music when they land in Sydney for a one-off headline show on 6 March at Oxford Art Factory. Get in quickly for this intimate show, tickets will not last!
