M+N is proud to announce our first ever international presents – and it’s none other than The Afghan Whigs in their maiden Australian tour.
Twenty-five years since their first gig in 1987, the Whigs will be performing two club shows in Melbourne and Sydney in July before taking to the stage at the now sold-out Splendour In The Grass festival in Byron Bay.
Formed in Cincinnati in 1986, the Greg Dulli-fronted trio have released six albums including Congregation, Black Love, 1965 and 1993’s Gentlemen, widely considered to be one of the greatest rock albums of its time.
The band haven’t performed since their final round of shows in 1999, recently reuniting for All Tomorrow’s Parties “I’ll Be Your Mirror” events in London and New Jersey, as well as Lollapalooza, Pukklepop and Primavera. Expect songs from their entire back catalogue, including tracks never before played live.
Tickets on sale May 4, 9am, with supports TBA.
