It’s time to head out and stock up on earplugs, because Scottish alt-rock icons The Jesus And Mary Chain have announced a run of Aussie dates for 2019.

Just last week, music fans were treated to an absolutely stacked lineup for the 2019 edition of the Golden Plains festival. In addition to a number of huge names such as Happy Mondays and Liz Phair, fans were delighted to learn that The Jesus And Mary Chain would be making their return to Aussie shores.

Throughout their storied career, Jim and William Reid have managed to craft a legacy most bands would dream of. First forming in 1983, the group released six albums before breaking up in 1999. Reforming in 2007, the group have been back in the swing of things, touring relentlessly ever since.


Last in the country in 2016 for the 30th anniversary of Psychocandy, the band have since been quite busy, releasing their first record in 19 years last year, and hitting the road with Nine Inch Nails. Now, they’ve announced a long-awaited Aussie tour for their eager fans.

Kicking off at the Sydney Opera House on March 7th, The Jesus And Mary Chain will be hitting up Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth, while squeezing in an appearance at the Golden Plains festival in the middle of it all.

Tickets to these headline dates will be available through Metropolis Touring, so don’t miss out on your chance to see one of the most acclaimed alt-rock/post-punk bands of all time when they come your way next March!
