Moby plays sideshows

After greeting 2010 with the loved-up hordes of Falls Festival, dance veteran Moby has committed to a couple of special dates in Sydney and Melbourne. The prolific beat-maker turned band-leader hasn’t played headline shows in Australia in over four years, so he’s chosen some grand venues for his return.

This year heralded Moby’s ninth album Wait For Me, coming a decade after his blockbusting opus Play. The man has never been one to repeat himself from record to record, and Wait For Me saw him meandering along a delicate, melancholy path.

With a catalogue of tracks that takes in everything from the euphoric rave of Go to the punk growl of That’s When I Reach for My Revolver, a Moby live show is always an event.

Moby plays this pair of sideshows in early January, between his appearances at Falls Festival, Southbound and Sunset Sounds. Tickets on sale Tuesday 17 November:

Sunday 3 January – Palace Theatre, Melbourne [18+]
Monday 4 January – Sydney Opera House [All Ages]

great venue to hear his music, but in terms of crowd atmosphere, i think opera house will be lacking.

I agree with Juzzzy I love Moby. He rocked the tent at Splendour a few years back. But the Opera House??? Hardly the venue for a dance act We might spill our chardonnay or make crumbs from the cheese and crackers while we dance
