Canadian singer-songwriters Tegan And Sara will return to Australia this April and May for a run of headline dates, alongside the already announced Groovin’ The Moo festival where they’ll appear alongside The Bronx, Frightened Rabbit, The Kooks, They Might Be Giants, and many more.
When the identical twins first came to our attention with their canny pop smarts all those years ago, they were a brash young indie outfit, doing things on their own terms as they had been since beginning their musical adventures together way back in the late-‘90s. Oh how things have changed.
The last time the twins visited Australian shores was back in 2010 for the travelling Groovin’ The Moo extravaganza – their fifth visit Down Under – and they enjoyed the rural festivities so much they’ve signed on again for the 2013 installment, along with undertaking their own massive headlining shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
But it’s not a gratuitous visit, by the time they arrive here in April they’ll have dropped their seventh album, Heartthrob, so they’ll be armed with an entire arsenal of new tunes as well as their canon of trusty old faves!
So whether you’re a long-term diehard or a newcomer to the myriad delights of Tegan And Sara, they’ll be playing pretty much every city and rural centre in the country so there’s plenty of opportunities to check them out when they hit Australian shores once again this April and May!
