Sydney’s own TonightAlive are heading home and to celebrate they’ve announced a very special Australian headline tour. Kicking off on October 31 at The Basement in Canberra, this run of dates will see TonightAlive go back to where it all began and revisit all the rooms they used to play when they first started. Joining TonightAlive upon their return will be their new friends in The Beautiful Monument. Currently dominating stages at Slam Dunk Festival in the UK, the Back To Beginnings tour comes off the back of the exciting announcement TonightAlive have found a brand new Australian home at UNFD, where they dropped their latest single “World Away”.
Last spied down under playing arenas with A Day To Remember in December 2016, TonightAlive want to celebrate their homecoming by giving the next generation of Australian talent a leg up, but with a twist. TonightAlive will be running a competition that gives local bands the opportunity to win the opening slot in each city on the tour. And the twist? To apply, the band must have a female member. For more information and to enter the competition, click here.
“We have toured with plenty of awesome bands around the world, and we’ve noticed more bands have female members and the number of women getting involved is growing too! The rock genre, and music in general, is male dominated for no good reason at all. Women are awesome and we want to celebrate that. So for this tour we want to know who the best rock bands in Australia with female members are. We’re running a competition in each city to find new and exciting bands to open our shows.” – Tonight Alive
