Default New Zealand & Australia Tour

With the Sonic Highways release, what chance is there of another Australian tour?

They haven't missed Oz yet, I don't think - they visit us at least once per go around.

There is NO chance there will NOT be an Australian leg of the tour.

Merged threads. As FZ says above, it is absolutely certain they will come to Australia and NZ, they have for every single tour since 1995 as it's their biggest market after the UK, the only other place they can sell out stadium shows.

Just have to wait until any shows are announced.

Foo Twitter just retweeted this Aussie Boys & Girls... you can bet it's yet another primer... so be sure to add Frontier Touring to your follow list if it wasn't already, pretty likely that's who will the AUS/NZ SH promoter.

Hopefully with the pic of the gear all packed and ready to go, that's a hint they will announce the rest of the world dates.

Thats just utter bullshit, they sell out large festivals (60k +) and stadiums just as easy in mainland Europe. Especially with all the buzz around the new album. They are headlining Rock am Ring (85k people), and did large festivals last time around as well. Unfortunately for us, they usually do a shitload of festivals, and not so much stadiums or even slightly smaller venues. Would be great to see them indoors again sometimes.

It's not bullshit, selling out your own stadium show is not the same as headlining a large festival. To date, the only places they've sold out their own stadium shows are the UK and Australia. They've now announced their own stadium shows in South America, so let's see if they sell those out. They've not played a stadium show of their own elsewhere to date, they only do arenas in Europe.

Frontier Touring just posted a teaser with a Tenacious D/'Tribute' reference. It might mean something. Or it might mean nothing.

Couldn't they have waited like 3 more weeks so I didn't have to stress about this while I'm away. Gosh. So rude.

They've got those couple of dates in South Africa in December. I'm tipping a promo visit just before or after those dates. Full tour April/May.

So that fits then, over in plenty of time to get back to the US to do the Watt dates.

On another note anyone else find it curious these recent tour dates have used the old Greatest Hits FF logo rather than the SH one?

Someone needs firing in the graphic design department! So who will be announced next for the tour then? Wonder if they will go to Japan as that had to be cancelled last time around.

I don't think it's a mistake, it seems to be a choice since the official FF tweeted images with that logo for Wrigley.

I'd assume Japan and New Zealand will be one or the other end of these Aussie dates, possibly Singapore and other Asian countries as well.
