Toto

^^

When: Thursday 3rd January
Where: Hordern Pavilion

They say fashion is cyclical... and they’re right. Truly amazing things never go out of style, regardless of when they first popped up. Toto’s tune ‘Africa’ is one of these things. First heard in 1982, this masterpiece of popular prog has been a staple of pop culture since release. Taken from their massive second album Toto IV, it combined their other calling card Rosanna to introduce Toto to a massive audience. That record would go on to win several Grammy Awards and establish a base from which the band grew into one of the most prolific and durable acts in modern music history. Musically mind blowing and with more hits that you can poke a stick at, there’s no doubt that people will ask “where were you when Toto played the Hordern?” for years to come.

Teenage Fanclub

^^

When: Friday 15th February
Where:
Metro Theatre

Frontier Touring is delighted to welcome back Glasgow five-piece Teenage Fanclub, returning to Australia and New Zealand in February 2019. The iconic ‘What You Do To Me’ rockers will perform four headline dates in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland. Over the course of almost 30 years in which they released seminal albums such as A Catholic Education, Bandwagonesque, Thirteen, Grand Prix, Songs From Northern Britain, Howdy!, Man Made, Shadows & Here, Teenage Fanclub went from being scrappy indie underdogs, through band-most-likely-to, eventually arriving at the status they’ve held ever since: one of Britain’s most beloved cult bands. Not liked, or admired, or respected: beloved. Teenage Fanclub’s most recent studio album is their tenth effort, 12 tracks and a textbook representation of democracy in action: 2016’s Here. Formed in 1989, Teenage Fanclub are a rare thing: a group who have grown old with their audience, reflecting their changing lives and shifting concerns. When Teenage Fanclub’s crowd looked at the band in 1991, they saw people just like them: boozy, boisterous and rambunctious. When they look at the band now, they still see themselves in them: they’re like the old best friends you see a couple of times a year, and come away from each meeting with your affections revived. Don’t delay in grabbing tickets to Teenage Fanclub, touring February 2019!
