Relentless rockers Eagles of Death Metal are heading to Australia and New Zealand.

The US band will tour the two countries in July and August, beginning in Melbourne and ending in Wellington (see full dates below).

It shouldn’t be one to miss: “If any band can make a crowd get up and boogie more than the Eagles of Death Metal I’d certainly like to see them,” Tone Deaf once wrote about the band.

July will be Eagle of Death Metal’s first live shows Down Under since 2016, with the show’s being part of the band’s 24th anniversary tour celebrations.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, April 26th at 11am local time. The Frontier Members pre-sale begins on Monday, April 24th at 11am local time.

Eagles of Death Metal were formed in 1998 by best friends Jesse Hughes and Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age). Releasing four studio albums over the years, the band became renowned for searing singles like “I Want You So Hard” and “Complexity”.

“Man, I have been itching to get back out there and play some live rock ‘n’ roll again to the best fans in the world,” Hughes says. “John Steinbeck once said, ‘People don’t take trips, trips take people’… This is an open invite to come take a trip with me and the band.”
