Please join us in slyly crossing our fingers and gently holding our breath in quiet anticipation, because an international (!) artist has just announced an Australian tour (!!) for next year (!!!) which feels like a near-miracle while we’re still seeing out 2020. UK pop-punk ratbag Yungblud has just dropped details of his return to Australia, with plans to light up stages across four major cities in September 2021.

Holy shit, could this…be it? Could this be a legitimate return to live, international performances for Aussie fans?

Kicking off at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne on September 2, Yungblud will whip around the country with his all-ages Life On Mars tour, hitting Fortitude Valley Music Hall in Brisbane, Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide, and finishing up at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on September 8.

The Aussie leg of the Life On Mars tour comes after a couple of dates in Russia in June and July before frenetic cyclone that is Yungblud continues the run over in the UK later in September. Yeah look pretty much calling it a world tour at this point, hey.

And knowing Yungblud, these shows are going to be right wild. I mean, the last time he was here he literally had two fans get engaged on stage at Party In The Paddock. How can you even top that?

Tickets for all the shows go on sale on Friday, November 27 from 4pm local time from Ticketek for Sydney and Melbourne, and Ticketmaster for Brisbane and Adelaide, with a couple of sneaky pre-sales happening for anyone who’s pre-ordered a copy of his incoming album, Weird! There’s also a chance to score yourself a meet and greet opportunity with Yungblud, with the first 50 fans to nab tickets in every city getting themselves on the list.

See ya in the pit, however that might look.
