Alex Cameron

Alex Cameron

Alex Cameron is one of a kind: a notorious misfit, enigmatic storyteller and subtle concept artist. Trainspotters will recognise him from Sydney-based electronic trio Seekae, but his solo projectwith his righthand man, Roy Molloy is from a completely different world. On his new album Forced Witness, Cameron writes from the perspective of his adopted stage character, an old-time lounge singer who can’t catch a break. With a charming sense of gravitas, Cameron sings about loserdom, failure and humiliation, which we reckon is pretty ironic for an artist who enjoys such wide acclaim. Be sure to check out ‘Strangers Kiss’, his recent duet with Angel Olsen that comes with a video clip starring and directed by Jemima Kirke of Girls fame.


Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders

Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders

Jack Ladder is one of the most singular characters in Australian music. Standing at almost seven feet tall with a towering but tender baritone, he is a master of musical narrative. His lyrics conjure tales of beauty, love, hope and redemption in songs that groove in subtle ways.His latest album with his band The Dreamlanders, ‘Blue Poles’, is released on May 4 is the follow up to 2014’s acclaimed ‘Playmates’. He has been invited to tour alongside Florence and the Machine, Father John Misty, Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and of late has been touring the US, UK and Europe with Alex Cameron.

"Jack Ladder's slow-spoken baritone adds drama to everything he says"★★★★ – The Australian

"But it all comes back to that voice: It can be a conspiratorial whisper, an ache in the dark, a desperate need. Playmates presents it with the respect it’s owed" ★★★★ – The Music

 

 

 

 

 

"The appeal of his splintered romanticism is by no means a given, but once his work connects, you begin to feel as though it’s been fashioned specifically for you….Playmates has already made a persuasive pitch for album of the year.” ★★★★ – The Brag

BIGGEST AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND TOUR TO DATE!

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS ALEX CAMERON
AND JACK LADDER & THE DREAMLANDERS


Frontier Touring, Triple M and Radio Hauraki are thrilled to announce the return of The Killers to Australia and New Zealand in April and May 2018. The widely-acclaimed rock band will play seven arena shows on their biggest Australasian tour to date, touring in celebration of their fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful (out now through Island Records/Universal Music Australia).

Kicking off in New Zealand at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Friday 20 April, the band will visit Wellington and Christchurch before heading to Australia to perform in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, before wrapping up the tour at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena on Friday 4 May. 

‘They write razor-sharp irresistible synth-rock anthems, with colossal choruses that sting and gleam and they perform them with a slickness and proficiency that may just be in their Las Vegas blood.’ – The Guardian

‘They have a good time on stage – and it’s infectious.’ – Independent

‘Flowers sounds great, the band is on point, and the songs—even the ones the audience doesn’t know—are instantly familiar.’ – Consequence of Sound

The Killers burst onto the scene in 2004, topping Australian charts and going Double Platinum with their debut album Hot Fuss. Featuring hit singles ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’, the album received instant popularity and widespread international success.  

Their early success continued with two further platinum albums Sam’s Town (2006) and Day & Age (2008), smash singles like ‘When You Were Young’, ‘Human’ and ‘Read My Mind’, and a touring schedule featuring headline arena shows and festival slots around the world including Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza.

The band’s forthcoming new album Wonderful Wonderful is the band’s first new material since Battle Born (2012). Produced by Jacknife Lee, the album was recorded between Jacknife’s Los Angeles studio and the band’s own Battle Born recording studio in Vegas.

Teased by a series of incredible new songs - ‘The Man’, ‘Run For Cover’ ‘Some Kind Of Love’ and title track ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ – the album is the band’s most sonically forward-thinking record yet, bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-pleasing anthems that make them one of the world’s biggest and beloved rock bands.

The Killers are finally returning to New Zealand and Australia! As one of the world’s most popular rock bands, these shows are not to be missed. Fans are encouraged to act now to avoid missing out!
