The National are stepping onto the Sydney Opera House forecourt for the second time

Off the back of their sold-out Sydney Opera House Forecourt performance in 2014, the American indie rock band from Cincinnati, are set to perform by the famous sails once again. The band’s stripped-back and raw cult sound is beginning to take on a new shape if their ass-kicking performance at Glastonbury is anything to go by. Now they’re getting ready to tour in Australia, and what better place to get started than under the stars at Bennelong Point. Even four years later, let's hope leadsinger Matty B will be throwing himself into the crowd like he did last time. Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday September 1.
