Five gigs not to be missed in June

June is upon us, and just like that we’re halfway through 2024. This year has seen some incredible acts and massive tours soar through the country, but we’re just getting started. We’ve got five shows for you to catch this June, from Aussie faves to international rock legends, playing at some of Australia’s most iconic venues. We know it’s getting chilly, but chuck a coat on and come on out to see some stellar live music next month!

Luke Hemmings

Now with two solo records under his belt, 5 Seconds of Summer lead vocalist Luke Hemmings is bringing his “Nostalgia For A Time That Never Existed” show back home, playing Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane.

His latest EP, Boy, was produced by Grammy-nominated producer Sammy Witte (Harry Styles, Maggie Rogers, Freya Ridings), and has received stelar reviews from fans and critics. His solo career allows an outlet for him to derive from the pop genre, delving into more mature themes and offering a chance for more introspective reflection. With the tour already underway in Europe, Aussie fans are excited to welcome Luke Hemmings home this June.

The Paper Kites

Following on from the release of At The Roadhouse in 2023, and what can best be described as a concept album, the highly acclaimed Melbourne band The Paper Kites are touring Australia this June. A hugely successful US and Canada tour performing as The Paper Kites and The Roadhouse Band has seen the band on the road for a run of shows across the end of 2023 and the start of 2024 – with a “you had to be there” set at Bluesfest this year thrown in as a one-off pre-tour taster.

Martin’s instantly recognisable baritone voice, supported ably by a large catalogue of over 30 years of interesting and challenging soundscapes will feel like a celebration of both old and new as the band continue to evolve and grow.
