Aussies Abroad: WAAX plot massive “FU” North American tour for July

Brisbane legends WAAX are heading off on a massive North American tour this July, in support of their recent single “FU”. Their US and Canadian shows will come after their appearance at the Sounds Australia Summerstage event in Central Park alongside Hermitude, A.B. Original and more on June 22nd (read more about that HERE). And then they’re back in Australia to tour another single, “I Am”, through August! It’s going to be a busy few months for one of Australia’s best rock troupes.

The North American tour dates officially kick off in Boston, and end at Los Angeles’ iconic Echo, with two dates in Canada – at Toronto’s Drake Hotel and Vancouver’s Fox Cabaret – thrown in amongst the 15 date tour. Iconic venues like Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge and Denver’s Larimer Lounge also make up the itinerary. You can check out all the dates below – and attendees should be prepared to mosh and sweat it out in intimate venues.
