Your Alt Rock King YUNGBLUD Is Coming To Australia Next Year

Good morning y’all, and a special good morning to Mr. Dominic Richard Harrison, Aka YUNGBLUD, who is officially heading down under next year. 

The Yorkshire-born young rockstar, best known for the aggressively horny music video to his track “cotton candy,” and subverting gender norms of fashion, just announced he’s heading back to Australia in 2021, putting forth the question: after Harry Styles had to cancel on us this year, are international artists finally coming back to us? Bitch, I think the fuck so.

In a poetic moment of post-COVID-19 victory, YUNGBLUD’s all-ages Life On Mars tour will begin at Melbourne’s Margaret Court Arena on Thursday, the 2nd of September, before heading to Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall on Saturday, the 4th of September, then Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre on Sunday, the 5th of September before ending the tour a few days later in Sydney at the Hordern Pavillion on Wednesday, the 8th of September. Anyone else keen on a cross-country road trip? 😏

YUNGBLUD’s Life On Mars Australia 2021 Tickets

FYI, tickets for YUNGBLUD’s Aussie Life On Mars 2021 tour go on sale Friday the 27th of November. If you can’t wait and desperately want to secure your spot—dw, same—you can sign up for the presale which begins at 4PM Thursday, the 26th of November, here.

“I’m so excited to get back down there and see my Aussie fans,” he said, via Secret Sounds. “I’m sitting on a lot of pent up energy, emotion and passion so you all better prepare yourselves. I’ve had a year trapped in a room and my ADHD needs to have some gasoline put on it and set me on fire… let’s get it!”

The all-ages Life On Mars tour will follow YUNGBLUD’s new album Weird, which drops on the 4th of December. So, y’know, expect some new bangers on top of his preexisting juicy hits, “cotton candy,” “parents” and his feature on Machine Gun Kelly’s “I Think I’m OKAY.”

Does this mark the return of our international music faves?

Could this mark the beginning of a return to the live music scene ft. international artists? Maybe! Could this be a sign that we could get more of our faves like Rina Sawayama, BENEE and Megan Thee Stallion? I am praying to the gay gods it is. 

Earlier this week, the BBC reported that the Oxford University’s COVID-19 vaccine currently in development was found to be 70% effective, and there’s a high chance we completely eradicate coronavirus in Australia by the time YUNGBLUD arrives here.
