Motion City Soundtrack Announce Aussie Farewell Tour Dates
When pop rock mainstays Motion City Soundtrack announced back in March that they’d be going on an indefinite hiatus we weren’t exactly expecting Oz to make the cut for their farewell tour route. After all, they’d only recently treated us to an anniversary tour of 2005’s Commit This To Memory and let’s face it, we’re not the most practical of places to visit.
Needless to say some rather exciting news has come overnight with the announcement that MCS have managed to squeeze in three final shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this September. Joining them for (what could well be) their last ever shows in Australia? None other than our own With Confidence, the Sydney pop-punk band making some serious waves both at home and abroad.
Tickets will be available from 9am this Saturday morning (set your alarms, kids) and will no doubt be an all-round nostalgic affair for anyone who grew up with Epitaph staple.
Have a read of Motion City Soundtrack’s full statement on their hiatus below:
It has been a quiet winter for us. We’ve had some time at home after a very busy 2015. With this time, we’ve been able to think about the past, present, and future of Motion City Soundtrack. All of this thinking has lead to several conversations, and these conversations have lead us to a very bittersweet realization:
We have no idea what the future holds, but for now we are done.
Needless to say, we’re feeling all the feels – you may be as well. If so, or if you’ve ever been touched by our music, we ask you to come out and sing along with us one last time in 2016.
Please stay tuned for a very special final tour announcement on Monday. You can sign up to our email/mailing list via our Facebook page to be the first to hear the news. We really hope to see each and every one of you out there one more time.
Thanks for all the love over the years. It really means a lot to us – and it always will.”
Tickets are on sale Saturday May 14th @ 9am.
