Gotye @ Sidney Myer Music Bowl

Not exactly indie...but still local!

After a mammoth world tour in 2012 Gotye will perform in Melbourne on 8 December at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl as part of a national handful of homecoming concerts.

For the first time this year Gotye’s homecoming concerts will also feature his 10 piece live band and will be the first opportunity for local audiences to see him perform since he started topping major music charts around the world at the end of last year.

The statistics for Gotye's breakout hit Somebody That I Used To Know (feat Kimbra) and album Making Mirrors have been well-publicised: the single has topped the charts in 31 countries, with sales fast approaching 10 million worldwide and album sales approaching 2 million so far. His omnipresent single hit #1 on the US Billboard 100 chart for a staggering eight consecutive weeks.

Closer to home, his unique artistry was recognised at last week's APRA Awards when he was named the Australian Songwriter of the Year. While his classic release Like Drawing Blood and his unforgettable song Hearts A Mess first thrust him into the local limelight in 2006, things have obviously gone to a whole new level over the course of this year. It's therefore only appropriate that he should finish 2012 by bringing it all back home for these select concerts.

About the Support Artists

Awarded ‘best local release of the decade’ by Sydney’s FBi Radio for their seminal 2008 album O Soundtrack My Heart, PVT are one of the most challenging and fascinating bands to emerge from Australia in the past decade.

Adventurous, thrilling, and undeniably unique, ARIA award winning Bertie Blackman forges into brand new musical territory yet again, with Pope Innocent X, the fourth, forthcoming album by the singer/songwriter.

Tickets are still available through the Arts Centre. [LINK]

    If anyone still needs tix, I have a seated pair for sale. They're really good seats (but not together with the ones I'm using...) & I'm just looking to get back what I paid for them. Thanks!
