Peking Duk have announced an Australian headline tour for the first quarter of 2023, with 15 dates on the itinerary for March (and one for April).
The electro-house titans kick off in Albury on Thursday March 3, with a hometown show in Canberra to follow just over a week later (Friday March 10). The weekend will then continue with Victorian concerts in Melbourne and Torquay, followed by one in Warrnambool the following Monday (March 13).
Heading north from there, Peking Duk will keep the vibe alive with a quartet of NSW shows – on stages in Wollongong, Sydney, the Central Coast and Byron Bay – before exploring Queensland for dates in Townsville, Cairns, Airlie Beach, Brisbane and the Gold Coast . Finally, March ends with a concert in Adelaide and April starts with one in Perth.
Tickets for all 16 shows go on sale at 9am local time this Wednesday (January 25), with a pre-sale starting at the same time a day earlier. All ticket information can be found here.
The imminent run comes more than four years after Peking Duk’s last full-scale headlining tour, which the pair embarked on in December 2018. Since then, they’ve released eight independent singles, starting with ‘Sugar’ (featuring Jack River) and ‘Ur Eyez’ (with Al Wright) in 2019, then ‘Move’ (with Alisa Xayalith), ‘Nothing To Love About Love’ (with The Wombats) and ‘Lil Bit’ (with Tommy Trash) in 2020.
2021 brought just one single – ‘Chemicals’, a rare Peking Duk song with no features – while last year they teamed up with Slayyyter for ‘Honest’ and Circa Waves for ‘Spend It’. They also featured on the Daniel Johns song ‘Cocaine Killa’ which appeared on his latest album ‘FutureNever’.
