Australian artist ALEX CAMERON today announces a national headline tour this April/May.
The tour comes off the back of impressive sets at this year’s Laneway Festival, alongside a run of sold out headline dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland last month. Stopping off in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth for headline shows at The Foundry, Manning Bar, Croxton Bandroom and Amplifier, Alex Cameron will continue on the road with The Killers across a run of ANZ arena dates. Tickets are on sale now, see all details below.
Joining Alex Cameron across his headline Australian tour will be Sydney-based, four-piece Body Type. Winners of FBi Radio’s 2017 SMAC Awards for ‘Next Big Thing’ and ‘Best Live Act’, Body Type have been capturing the ears and hearts of music fans and industry alike with their wistful, self-described “scuzz rock” as heard across singles ‘Ludlow’, ‘Break Down‘, ‘264’ and ‘Silver’.
The second set of Australia tour dates for 2018, Alex Cameron returns home, with full band on hand, following a busy year of releases and touring from his celebrated second record Forced Witness (Secretly Canadian) featuring special features from Angel Olsen and Brandon Flowers (The Killers), collabs with The Killers on the band’s fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful and a string of headline shows and supports alongside the likes of Foxygen, Mac DeMarco, Kevin Morby, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Angel Olsen across dates throughout North America, Europe and the U.K.

PRAISE FOR ALEX CAMERON
FBi Radio Feature Album
2SER Feature Album
“The art-sleaze of Alex Cameron’s second album transcends its surface-level
smarm to become a biting piece of commentary. Thankfully, the songs
are as effortlessly catchy as they are eminently creepy.”
“Forced Witness is intimate, bold, and honest.”
“Cameron continues to make the deplorable irresistible on LP two.”
Rolling Stone AU (4 stars)
“On ‘Stranger’s Kiss’, Cameron’s duet with Angel Olsen, the ambition of
Alex Cameron expands from insular synthpop to a sweeping,
Springsteen-inspired ballad about a strange loneliness.”
“…a record of perky 80s jams…”
Mikey Cahill, Herald Sun (4 stars)
“…an album that broadens Cameron’s horizons as, not only a musician, but as a showman.”
The Line Of Best Fit
“Alex Cameron has perfected the fine art of telling dark, sometimes sordid stories combined with oddly upbeat tunes.”
The Music (4 stars)
