Today, Empire Of The Sun announced an extensive U.S. tour followed by headline shows in London (O2 Academy Brixton) and Paris (Casino de Paris). To celebrate the decade anniversary of their debut album, Walking On A Dream, the band will be playing intimate venues across North America, with two-night stands in numerous cities, including Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles before they return to the UK and France.
The London date will mark their second ever headline show in the UK as their first came just prior to the release of 2016’s ‘Two Vines’ album (Virgin EMI) at The Roundhouse in October that year. The performance garnered much praise: “Empire Of The Sun are now genuine stars” (****), said The Independent, “by the end the stage was like a cross between Flash Gordon and Burning Man” (****), commented The Times, while the Daily Star noted “The standing ovation was well-earned”.
The tour announcement follows the release of the limited-edition vinyl of Walking On A Dream: 10th Anniversary Edition. This special product, available for purchase HERE, includes a gatefold, 180-gram heavyweight transparent blood orange vinyl of Walking On A Dream and a unique code to download the unreleased track “Chrysalis”, featuring the original artwork from the initial 2009 vinyl release.
Tickets for all shows will go on sale this Friday, February 22, at 10:00 AM local time HERE
