Gomez announce their annualAustralian tour

Back in the year 2000 Gomez made their first visit to Australia and decided they kinda liked the place. They’ve returned for festivals like Falls, Bluesfest and Splendour and in October the Gomez crew will pack their bags for their eleventh Australian tour (and that doesn’t seem to include the occasional solo jaunt from singers Ian Ball and Ben Ottewell).

Gomez will be letting the fans choose the setlists on their Quinceanera tour to help celebrate their 15th year of live performances. The tour will see the band touching down in Darwin and then playing shows long the East Coast before heading over to New Zealand. Unfortunately there are no shows for fans in Perth and Adeliade this time around.

True fans (who have no doubt see the band on every Australian visit) can even grab an upgraded ticket that includes access to an after show meet and greet, a silkscreened tour poster, a download of rare tracks and an autographed copy of the band’s new album Whatever’s On Your Mind.

Gomez tour:
Wednesday 10 October – Trailer Boat Club, Darwin
Thursday 11 October – Tanks Art Centre, Cairns
Friday 12 October – The Venue, Townsville
Saturday 13 October – Coolangata Hotel , Coolangata
Sunday, 14 October – Tivoli Theatre , Brisbane
Thursday, 18 October – Panthers , Newcastle
Friday, 19 October – The Hi Fi, Sydney
Sunday 21 October – The Corner, Melbourne
Monday 22 October – The Corner, Melbourne

Will attend a Corner show, a little expensive though

I like that they're playing the Darwin Trailer Boat Club but not Perth or Adelaide.

A lot of love for QLD in general. Thumbs up to the Newie show also. Will attend either Cooly or Tiv. Will decide later

This is an upgrade package - a ticket must be purchased to gain entry. NOTE: This package will not be shipped - any shipping charges included in this sale will be reversed.

Price: $49.00


Same price as the ticket I suppose. Its tempting considering I don't have the album, but i doubt it.

It's not the same price as the ticket - it's twice the price. You have to pay for the ticket, and then pay the extra $49 on top.



Will prolly request a bit of Make No Sound action, or We Haven't Turned Around or Shot Shot, but they're so good at rotating through all their albums when choosing songs that I'm usually pretty happy no matter what they play.

One of my favourite Gomez memories was them playing at the Arena, and playing Make No Sound, and about halfway through Ben just stopped singing, because the whole room was singing it for him. :-)

Would love if they played any of their cover combos - 78 Stone Shuffle into Not Fade Away, or Black Eyed Dog into Free To Run.
