Gotye announces huge December tour

After conquering the world with his ubiquitous hit Somebody That I Used To Know, Gotye aka ‘Our Wally’ is heading back home for a draw-droppingly huge tour this December – right in time to headline one or two summer festivals no doubt.

In an interview with triple j Breakfast this morning Wally announced the quick run of shows and revealed he will be backed by a 10-piece band.

Since jetting overseas last year, Wally has gone number one in the US, performed on Saturday Night Live, had his song butchered by the Glee cast and despite all this remained a top bloke.

Speaking with FL on the release of Making Mirrors Wally opened up about the inspiration for his new album and ‘That Song’, “I think all the album is very personal, more so than anything on my previous records. It’s really not so much me playing a character…that being said, Somebody That I Used To Know is not a direct relationship experience. It’s based on things I’ve definitely felt and thought about before in relationships, but there is also an element of fiction to it”.

Tickets for Gotye will go on sale to members of his mailing list and Gotye Facebook friends from 2pm Friday, June 22nd (local times). Remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public from 9am on Wednesday June 27th.

Gotye Australian tour dates:

Thursday 6th December – Entertainment Centre, Adelaide

Saturday 8th December – Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne

Wednesday 12th December – Riverstage, Brisbane

Friday 14th December – Entertainment Centre, Sydney
