Bloc Party Splendour warm up show

Bloc Party’s headline set on the Saturday night at Splendour was billed as their ‘only Australian show’, so it looks as though Brisbane has ceded and branched on its own just to score a special gig. The recently reunited English indie stars will be playing a warm up gig at the Zoo in Brisbane with support from their mates in Last Dinosaurs.

Bloc Party are also a much loved member of the Splendour family having played at the festival in 2005, 2007 and 2009. They’ve also been represented at the festival in the last two years with guitarist Russell Lissack joining the lineup of Ash at the festival in 2010 and frontman Kele playing a set last year.

Tickets for the warm up show go on sale at 9am next Tuesday 17th July via the Secret Sounds and Bloc Party mailing lists.
