Already confirmed to be touring New Zealand for months, Alex G has finally announced a run of Australian shows.

The US multi-instrumentalist, one of the most influential singer-songwriters of his generation, will perform in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane this December (see full dates below). While Down Under, he’ll also appear at Meredith Festival. He’ll then head to Aotearoa for his debut headline shows in the country.

Tickets to the Australian shows go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, August 30th at 10am local time. The Fonrtier Members pre-sale begins on Monday, August 28th at 12pm local time.

Alex G hasn’t toured Australia in a long time, with the COVID-19 pandemic causing the postponement of his last planned visit in 2020.

The lo-fi artist is now touring in support his masterful 2022 album God Save the Animals, which earned him some of the strongest reviews of his career to date. “Placing its faith in the healing power of animals and Auto-Tune, Alex Giannascoli’s most hopeful record stands out for its grounded patience and moments of sharp lyrical simplicity,” wrote Pitchfork.

The Guardian noted Alex G’s album “finds him more ambitious, strange and embedded in studio experimentation than before,” while Rolling Stone hailed it as a “tour de force.”

Before arriving in Australia and New Zealand, Alex G will embark on a co-headlining tour with fellow indie favourites Alvvays, with their North American run of shows beginning in August (more information here).

In other Alex G news, the musician recently released a new album capturing recordings from his 2022 headline tour. Live From Union Transfer was recorded during his run of hometown shows at the titular Philadelphia venue last year.
