A new tour of Australia is finally upon us.
And this one has some big names.
Nickelback and Alanis Morissette are scheduled to tour the country for the first time since the release of their latest album.
They’re set to headline two major concerts in Brisbane on July 19 and 20.
On the one hand, this is great news for the local economy.
It means a lot of jobs in the city, and the tourism sector in particular.
But it also means that Australia is going to miss out on some great artists in the coming years.
Nickels, who were previously booked for the Australian leg of the tour, have never toured Australia before.
The tour has been in the works for years, and was first announced in 2016.
It was meant to last a few months but was cut short in the wake of the 2016 coronavirus pandemic.
The band’s manager said at the time that the tour was still a priority, and would eventually be completed.
And then the Australian tour went off without a hitch.
The show has been confirmed for September 22 and 23, with a new date to be confirmed in November.
The dates for both shows are expected to be announced soon.
For those who want to know more about the tour:Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
The Sydney Opera House is holding a free concert on Thursday and Friday night, August 15 and 16, to benefit the NSW Children’s Hospital.
The event is open to the public.
