Belle & Sebastian announce 2018 Australian tour

Belle & Sebastian return to Australia in May next year for the first time since their tour in 2015. With performances confirmed for The Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Perth’s Astor Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane. Further tour details below!

To commemorate 20 years since the bands previous multi-EP release – 1997’s Dog On Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane and 3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light – they have three more EPs released in quick succession this December. All titled How To Solve Our Human Problems, the first EP will be released on December 8, the second on January 19, and the final instalment landing on February 16, just ahead of their tour.

In addition to re-embracing short-form releases, the project finds the group exploring an off-the-cuff, anything- goes ethos, experimenting with sounds, formats and themes. “We are delighted to be coming back to Australia in 2018, with some new songs to play for you.” Said frontman Stuart Murdoch.
