What’s on

George Ezra

  • Folk, country and blues

Equipped with a warm, velvety baritone voice, George Ezra launched onto the scene in 2013 with the release of his smash hit, 'Budapest'. The track, which has racked up more than 800 million streams, propelled him into international starlight, and his debut album climbed to number one on the UK music charts. In the years that followed, Ezra has released a critically acclaimed sophomore album, amassed 25 platinum album certifications and embarked on several global tours. And now, after a four-year wait, Ezra has finally announced that his third studio album, Gold Rush Kid, will be released on June 10. Be among the first to hear live renditions of the euphoric 12-track album when Ezra touches down in Sydney on October 29 and Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl on October 31. General public tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday, June 10 through the Secret Sounds website. After more live music? Here are the best gigs happening in Melbourne this month.  


  • Funk, soul and disco

In terms of genre, three-piece band Khruangbin clearly don't want to be put in a box. While their sound is rooted in soul and R'n'B, they've experimented with everything from psych-funk and southeast Asian pop to surf-rock and dubby disco. Last here in 2019, the group is returning to Australia with a four-date headline tour throughout Fremantle, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne.  Ticketholders will be treated to a program featuring tracks from their most recent EP, Texas Moon, as well as popular hits from their discography. Jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist Kamasi Washington will open the night at the Melbourne show, taking listeners through a rich and cinematic musical history of Black America.  Khruangbin will play at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday, December 3. General public tickets go on sale from Friday, April 1 at 2pm through the website.  Looking for more live music? Check out our round-up of the best gigs happening in Melbourne this month.

Arctic Monkeys

  • Rock and indie

Here's some news that you do wanna know: British rockers Arctic Monkeys have announced a three-show tour Down Under in 2023, including a massive show at Melbourne's Sidney Myer Music Bowl.  Last here in 2019 for a mammoth run of sold-out arena shows, the Sheffield band has released six critically acclaimed studio albums to date. Best known for their suave take on garage rock, their alternative tunes have been streamed over nine billion times to date, which rounds out to an impressive 6.5 million streams daily. If you're keen to see the British rock royalty take the stage, stay tuned for when general public tickets go on sale on Thursday, June 17. The Melbourne show is all-ages, and those 18 years or under can attend with an adult.  Need your live music fix now? Here are the best gigs happening in Melbourne this month.


  • Pop

It's been a hot minute since Lorde last graced Australian shores but the wait is almost over. Lorde is returning to Melbourne for her Solar Power tour in March 2023 to showcase her distinct pop ballads at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.  While Lorde may have burst onto the scene with a dark and almost melancholic style of pop with Pure Heroine and Melodrama, the star's latest album Solar Power appears far more sanguine if its first single to be released (also called 'Solar Power') is anything to go by. Lorde says: "The album is a celebration of the natural world, an attempt at immortalising the deep, transcendent feelings I have when I’m outdoors. In times of heartache, grief, deep love or confusion, I look to the natural world for answers. I’ve learnt to breathe out, and tune in. This is what came through.” See Lorde as part of her Solar Power tour at Sidney Myer Music Bowl on March 10 or March 11, 2023.
