The Breeders


Iconic alternative rock band The Breeders are returning to Australia.

Beginning in Sydney on January 22nd, The Breeders will then visit Melbourne and Brisbane through the rest of the month (see full dates below).

The band last graced Australian shores during Meredith in 2018, making these tour dates a highly anticipated return. The Breeders’ East Coast Australian tour will precede a surprise supporting slot for pop superstar Olivia Rodrigo in the US.

Tickets to the Australian tour go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, October 10th at 11am local time. The pre-sale begins on Monday, October 9th at 11am local time.

Originally conceived by visionary Pixies member Kim Deal and Tanya Donelly of Throwing Muses fame, The Breeders started as a creative side project and swiftly rose to become one of the defining bands of the early ’90s.

Their lasting influence continues to reverberate through the music scene today. The Breeders achieved widespread recognition with their second album, Last Splash, featuring the runaway hit single “Cannonball.” Released in 1993, the record propelled the band into the mainstream, earning platinum status and leading them to share stages with legendary acts like Nirvana.

Following a hiatus in 1995, the band sporadically released albums throughout the 2000s, including Title TK (2002), Mountain Battles (2008), and All Nerve (2018). They also commemorated the 30th anniversary of Last Splash with an album reissue, an extensive tour, and unforgettable appearances at festivals like Coachella and Riotfest.

The Breeders have shared stages with acclaimed bands such as Foo Fighters and Belly, further solidifying their status as enduring alternative rock pioneers.
