The xx announce Melbourne encore show with proceeds donated to charities

The xx return to Australian shores in January. With the first show at Sidney Myer Music Bowl officially sold out, The xx have announced an encore Melbourne show at The Forum on Sunday 14 January – tickets on sale Thursday 21 December. Details below!

Following the support of The xx’s collaboration with PLUS1 for their first round of Australian shows, the proceeds from their Forum show will be split between local charities Heaps Decent and Minus 18.

Heaps Decent is an Australian based dynamic arts organisation working with young people & emerging artists from marginalised & disadvantaged communities, providing a means by which they can tell their story in their own way. Heaps Decent supports change, positive futures & the development of high quality Australian music with a unique identity.

Minus18 is an organisation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) Youth Australia Wide. They tackle bullying and discrimination by creating spaces where LGBTIQ youth belong. Visit for more information on the organisation.

With a second show added in Melbourne and no further shows to be announced fans are encouraged to act quickly in securing their tickets. Sydney and Brisbane shows are on sale now and selling fast.
