They’re Back From the Dead (our review here) and now US Grammy-winning rockers Halestorm are set to return to our shores next February. The band will play to Aussie fans for the first time since 2019 for three exclusive shows up and down the east coast in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne. They’ll also hit up our friends across the ditch in New Zealand for one show in Auckland.
For all you WoS super sleuths out there, you might have noticed this tour announcement was imminent. Frontwoman Lzzy Hale caught up with Wall of Sound’s Kelsey Trevan last week and revealed that they were already in talks of a return to our country following their appearances in the US and UK:
“We miss you guys! We miss our Aussie fanbase and just being over there. You guys are absolutely some of the best rock fans in the entire world. There’s such a different energy every time we come over so we can’t wait!”
You can revisit the rest of that interview here, where Hale discusses the processes that went down during the making of Back From the Dead as well as breaking down the status quo in female-fronted rock.
