Swedish House Mafia sell out Sydney show
Sun 18th Nov, 2012 Newsin
After a huge response to this morning’s on-sale, all tickets have been snapped up to the Swedish House Mafia’s last-ever Australian show on Saturday 2 February 2013. The stage is set for a spectacular show at Sydney Showground, accompanied by lasers, fireworks, pyrotechnics and flames.
2012 has already delivered a career’s worth of highpoints for Swedish House Mafia. “The most important thing for us is the fans and the people who’ve been supporting us from day one – and the new fans too, the young kids,” Sebastian Ingrosso told inthemix recently. “That people feel that we all made it for the music and that we were real. Because there’s not many bands that get the offers that we get and I’ll tell you now, it’s the biggest companies in the world, the biggest artists in the world. A lot of people want to work with us, and we just say ‘no, we can’t’ because we can’t do anything half done. So I hope they feel that what we’re doing now is from the bottom of our hearts. This isn’t planned, this is no marketing thing. That’s what I hope, at least, comes across.”
To coincide with the final tour, the Swedes also released a mix compilation, Until Now, bringing together selections from the group’s back catalogue, mash-ups, edits and previously unreleased material including the Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash collaboration Reload. As well as Don’t You Worry Child, Until Now features a roll-call of Swedish House Mafia anthems: Greyhound, Knife Party collab Antidote, Miami 2 Ibiza and Leave The World Behind.
