Phoenix Confirm Tour in Australia and in the Process Really Piss Me Off

You know what really irks me?

A great international band that tours Australia infrequently and only plays in Sydney and Melbourne.

This is exactly what looks to be happening with the upcoming Phoenix tour, a band set to release their fourth album this month.

I note that dates for Sydney and Melbourne appear on their website, but no dates for any other Australian cities. The tour coincides with the Splendour in the Grass festival and one could probably say that Phoenix will play this festival.

The only problem is - Splendour in the Grass tickets are notoriously difficult to get a hold of and means that in order to see one particular band, the individual must instead pay to see half a dozen mediocre ones as well.

Lets hope this doesn't occur, and Phoenix do indeed announce a Brisbane show.

I'll be first in line to get a ticket then!
