The xx have made a surprise announcement on their Facebook page this morning posting news of two special balloted shows in Australia this July.
“We are very excited to be returning to Australia soon for two small shows,” the band announced. “We will play Melbourne Forum on July 18th and Sydney Metro on July 20th. To try and stop touts getting all the tickets, there is a lottery system which you can apply for starting at 10am today.”
The group is set to release the follow up to their self-titled, Mercury Award winning debut in September. According to Jamie xx, the new album Coexist is heavily inspired by the club music scene that the trio missed out on as a result of their early success.
The xx tour dates:
Wednesday 18th July – Forum, Melbourne
Friday 20th July – Metro, Sydney
