Panda Bear and The Breeders announce Sydney Opera House debut and Australian Tours

The Sydney Opera House will play host to seminal alt-rockers The Breeders, and founding member of Animal Collective, Panda Bear in November and December.

Making their return to Australia with their iconic lineup, The Breeders are celebrating the release of All Nerve, their first album in a decade. Meanwhile, Panda Bear is also making his Australian debut this December, bringing his sun-drenched sampling and enchanting, introspective lyrics to the Opera House. “The Breeders and Panda Bear’s music means an enormous amount to me and we’ve waited nearly a decade to welcome each immensely talented act here,” said Ben Marshall, the Opera House’s Head of Contemporary Music.

You can catch The Breeders at the Concert Hall on Friday 30 November 2018, and Panda Bear at the Joan Sutherland Theatre on Sunday 16 December 2018. Tickets for both shows go on sale this Friday 31st August at 9am.

Along with those shows at the Opera House, both The Breeders and Panda Bear will be taking their shows around Australia, stopping in at a handful of festivals along the way. Full tour dates can be found below. Tickets for all both tours go on sale at 9am on Friday 31st August.
