The Hives Splendour sideshows moved

The Hives will make their fifth visit to Australia to play at Splendour in the Grass, On the Brightside and a trio of sideshows in July.

When we interviewed July and the band’s drummer Chris Dangerous earlier this month he gushed the “We LOVE Australia man. We love the festivals and we love the audiences.” However, four’s year on from the release of their last record The Black and White Album, it seems that Australasian punters aren’t quite as in love with the band as they used to be.

Tickets for the band’s Splendour sideshows went on sale just under a month ago, but the Sydney and Melbourne venues have now been moved from barns to theatre shows. There is no change to the Adelaide show.

The Sydney show scheduled for the Hordern Pavilion has shifted across town to the Enmore. In Melbourne both the date and venue have been changed – shifting from a Wednesday show at Festival Hall to Tuesday show at the Palace.

The Melbourne change will create an issue for under-age fans as the Palace Theatre is a licensed venue. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date, refunds will be available until Friday 22nd July through the point of purchase.

The Hives with The Grates:

Monday 25th July – Thebarton, Adelaide

Tuesday 26th July – Palace, Melbourne (change of venue)

Thursday 28th July – Enmore, Sydney (change of venue)
