Good news to long suffering Australian fans! The Decemberists will make their debut in Australia and New Zealand performing this January as a part of the annual Big Day Out Festival. Also performing this year are Muse, Lily Allen, The Mars Volta, Mastodon, Girl Talk, and many others.
The traveling festival makes stops in Auckland (1/15), Gold Coast (1/17), Sydney (1/22), Melbourne (1/26), Adelaide (1/29), and Perth (1/31). Tickets will be available starting October 7th for Sydney, October 8th for Gold Coast Sun, and October 9th for the other shows here: http://www.bigdayout.com/tickets.php. These shows will not be Hazards of Love shows.
The dates below are the last opportunities to catch the band playing The Hazards of Love in its entirety. Check for your city in the list of dates below, and if any of them are beyond your zone of comfort, you can watch The Decemberists perform HoL at the sold out Austin City Limits Festival this weekend live via webcast. Tune in at 7pm CT on Saturday night here: http://aclfestival.com/2009_files/webcast.html.
