BIRDS of Tokyo is set to rock Wanneroo Showgrounds as the headline act for this year’s City of Wanneroo Presents Concert.
Having recently won a fourth APRA award for Best Rock Work, alongside multiple ARIA gongs and a suite of platinum plaques, Birds of Tokyo is one of Australia’s top contemporary rock bands.
Dark, dystopian, heavy synth-rock sounds blended seamlessly to create a strong setlist of signature anthems is what fans can expect when Birds of Tokyo takes to the stage.
The band will get crowds rocking out to tunes from latest album Brace, as well as smash hits Lanterns and I’d Go with You Anywhere. Keyboardist Glenn Sarangapany said the setlist for the show included some of the band’s early songs up to their latest.
Support act Winterbourne will entertain with songs from the duo’s recently released EP, which debuted at number 8 on the iTunes Album Charts, and number 23 on the ARIA Album Charts.
The Money War is also on the bill as a support act, bringing the band’s indie pop sound to the concert.
Winners of the Triple J unearthed competition last year, the pair was chosen to open the Southbound festival in 2016.
These Winter Nights will also play in the lead up to Birds of Tokyo’s act – their single Heart’s On Fire received a nomination for the WAMAwards last year.
Last but not least, the first group to hit the stage on November 4 will be The Spring Peaks, a five-piece indie pop band from Fremantle.
The band’s recent singles have had extensive air time on Triple J and their debut EP is anticipated for release this year.
The food line up includes Spanish, Vietnamese and Italian flavours, with a big variety of meals to suit all tastes.
Children will be kept entertained throughout the concert with a Radrock climbing wall, bungee trampolines, bouncy castle, festival glitter face decoration session and face painting, pop up photobooth and much more.
Tickets are free but essential and will be available exclusively to City of Wanneroo residents from 9am on Monday, October 2.
Any remaining tickets will open to the general public at 9am on Monday, October 16.
