Aussie rock band to play Sheffield in winter
Australian rock’n’roll band Airbourne have announced a UK winter tour, including a date at Sheffield’s O2 Academy on 28 November.
The scrappy upstarts from Warrnambool – a country town about three hours from Melbourne, announced their arrival with 2007’s Runnin’ Wild, one of the most talked-about and best-reviewed debuts in recent hard rock history.
Metal Hammer handed them a Golden Gods Award for Best Debut Album and Classic Rock rightly hailed them Best New Band. Airbourne further marked their territory with the jaw-dropping follow up No Guts. No Glory cracking the Top 40 in the UK, the Top 20 in Australia and Billboard’s Top 200.
After unrelenting global touring that included co-headlining the legendary Wacken Festival and performing on the main stage at Download UK, the band released the critically acclaimed Black Dog Barking into the world.
The album reached #5 in Germany, Top 20 across Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; and Top 30 in Canada and the U.K. Airbourne bring a sound that UK’s Metal Hammer suggests, “takes seconds to memorise and a lifetime to shake off.”
Tickets for Airbourne’s Sheffield show go on sale on 26 July at 9am. Make sure you get yours here.
