News : Papa Roach announce two exclusive shows in Australia

By on October 10, 2017

US alternative rock band Papa Roach have confirmed their first ever headline tour in Australia next year. Two exclusives have been announced in Australia for January 22nd at Melbourne’s 170 Russell and January 24th at Sydney’s Metro Theatre.

Tickets on sale October 11th, 2017 from 9 am (local time).

The band last performed previously in Australia in 2002 supporting Red Hot Chili Peppers, and again in 2015 for the now-defunct Soundwave festival.

Papa Roach released their ninth studio album, Crooked Teeth (out now via Cooking Vinyl Australia) earlier this year to critical acclaim. The band is currently on a sold-out run of headline shows in Europe, and are pretty excited to be back in Australia.

Commenting from Europe, lead singer Jacoby Shaddix said, “this is the first time we have been able to bring our show to the people of Australia. We know that Aussies are some of the best fans in the world and we have not been able to tour there as much as we had hoped but our label Sony convinced us that we had to come over and start the process to build our base and we are more than ready for the challenge. The internet has been a great tool and our fans are still finding us through youtube and now spotify helping us regenerate our audience after nearly 20 years as a band. Our streaming numbers are pretty undeniable and they are growing rapidly.”
